Welcome to Americas Summer Place-theres no place quite like it-and the experience cannot be duplicated. Grand Hotel. Opened in 1887. On an island without cars-where horses and bicycles are still the favored modes of transportation. Its the shower-more leisurely pace of the past-but with all the amenities of the present. Where guests enjoy exceptional service and accommodations-and a full breakfast and five-course dinner are included daily. Grand Hotel features 385 uniquely decorated guest rooms and also has the longest porch in the world. Afternoon Tea is offered each day and meals-which are included in the rate-are served in our Main Dining Room. Mackinac Island does not allow motorized vehicles-bicycles and horse and carriage carry guest around the island. The movie Somewhere in Time was filmed at Grand Hotel starring Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve.
