Spend a few hours basking in the luxury and grandeur of the beautiful and historic Grand Hotel while experiencing the beauty of Mackinac Island in Northern Michigan and enjoy the legendary Grand Luncheon Buffet, a decadent buffet worthy of royalty and one of the highlights of the Grand Hotel experience!

Enjoy the charm of Mackinac Island, where bikes and horse-drawn carriages are the favored modes of transportation and where sweethearts and honeymooners can enjoy the vast lake and colorful flowers. Sit back and relax in a rocking chair and enjoy the views of the Straits of Mackinac on the World's Longest Front Porch. It is also a favorite Hollywood filming location, as Somewhere in Time and This Time for Keeps were filmed on the property. Notable visitors include Mark Twain and five U.S. Presidents, Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, George H. W. Bush, and Bill Clinton.

Beautiful setting and the food and service was top notch. I'd highly recommend this to anyone that wants to see the hotel and grounds. If you go, do yourself a favor and dress on the nicer side of casual. I would definitely do this again on my next trip to the island.
