The Famous Grand Hotel
Ignite your passion for life. This resort is romantic, magical, timeless and unforgettable. With multiple packages, it’s possible to create a dream vacation that will eternally linger in your thoughts. Grand Hotel was voted by Travel+Leisure Family magazine’s best resorts for families and kids..
Experience the tradition of Grand Hotel, located on northern Michigan’s Mackinac Island. You will never forget the spectacular views from a rocking chair overlooking the Straits of Mackinac from the world’s longest porch. Third-generation, family-owned by the Musser family, Grand Hotel is rich in history, a place where time moves at the pace of horse-drawn carriages and bicycles.
Here, meals are an event and traditions such as Afternoon Tea in the Parlor and nightly dancing remain a noteworthy part of the guest experience. Take a step away from it all and unwind in the warm hospitality that has been charming guests since 1887.
Grand Hotel offers exceptional accommodations, with each guest room uniquely decorated by interior designer Carleton Varney of Dorothy Draper & Co. in New York City. Grand Hotel is recognized as Travel + Leisure’s 500 World’s Best Hotels and the Best Hotel in Michigan, and Condé Nast Traveler’s Top 5 Midwest Resorts.
Named Condé Nast Traveler’s “Best Small Hotel in the World” for three consecutive years, the Hotel Iroquois on Michigan’s breathtaking Mackinac Island is a treasured family getaway. A seasonal stunner, this classically sophisticated and intimate hotel captivates first-time visitors and longtime guests with its singular combination of beautifully decorated guest rooms and suites, fine dining and unparalleled waterfront location.
Located at the end of Main Street, Hotel Iroquois owes its architectural elegance to the design sensibilities of a turn-of-the-century blacksmith who built the stately Victorian-style showplace directly on the storied Straits of Mackinac. An inn since 1904, the McIntire family purchased it in 1954 and has elevated hospitality to an art form in the sixty years since. Today, the Iroquois experience begins the moment you step off the ferry and a friendly porter collects your bags. From horse-drawn carriage rides and bicycling to mornings that begin with the hotel’s signature lemon blueberry muffins, a more serene and picturesque setting is difficult to imagine.
This polished B&B is set in an elegant Victorian mansion overlooking the Straits of Mackinac. It's 2 miles from both the ferry docks and Fort Mackinac.
Warm rooms offer en suite bathrooms and free Wi-Fi, plus woodland or lake views. Suites in a separate building add air-conditioning, minifridges and microwaves; some have private balconies.
Hot buffet breakfast is provided. There's also a steakhouse serving evening meals, plus a cocktail lounge. Other amenities include a seasonal outdoor pool, lawn games and gardens. Bikes are available for hire (fee).
Mission Point, an award-winning lakefront resort, is a 10-minute walk from the Star Line Ferry dock. This sprawling, family-friendly establishment gives island visitors a choice of resort. But it provides a vastly different experience in terms of service and amenities compared to Grand Hotel.
While Mission Point has some history in its own right—it utilizes buildings that once held an 1820s Indian school and a 1950s Moral Re-Armament Conference Center—its resort-level amenities are not automatically part of guest packages. Take care: Fees added to the bill along the way can make a stay a lot more expensive than anticipated. Ask what they are before you book.
Overlooking Lake Huron and set amid landscaped gardens, this Victorian hotel dating from 1852 lies within the car-free Mackinac State Historic Park, and is a 4-minute walk from a ferry dock.
Quaint, individually styled rooms offer cable TV and free Wi-Fi. Suites come with minifridges, coffeemakers and sitting areas. The 2-bedroom suites add extra bathrooms (1 with a whirlpool tub), as well as living rooms, kitchenettes and private balconies.
Breakfast (fee) is served in a restaurant with an open-air terrace offering harbor views. There's also a casual bar/grill with outdoor seating. Other amenities include an indoor pool, a hot tub and a sauna.
This family-run, 19th-century hotel is situated opposite the Arnold Line Ferry dock and 6 minutes' walk from Fort Mackinac.
Guest rooms feature vintage furnishings and wall coverings. The Historic rooms feature bathrooms with a shower stall and a toilet (sinks are in the main rooms), while upgraded rooms have tub/shower combinations and vanity sinks.
Amenities include a sundeck and a spa pool. There's also a breakfast buffet (surcharge), a burrito restaurant (lunch only), a pizza cafe (lunch and dinner) and the hotel's own sweet shop.
