The historic Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan was built in 1887 with the advertising of the world's largest porch and opened with rates ranging from $3 to $5 a night. The Grand Hotel has had many well-known visitors such as Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, and 5 U.S. Presidents including Harry S. Truman, John F. Kennedy, Gerald Ford, George H. W. Bush, and Bill Clinton. The building was designated a State Historic Building in 1957, a National Register of Historic Places in 72, and a National Historic Landmark in 89. It is also a favorite Hollywood filming location, as Somewhere in Time and This Time for Keeps was filmed on the property. The front porch ranges over 600 feet that overlooks a beautiful Tea Garden and Swimming Pool. The location utilizes a horse-drawn carriage for a more classic style look due to the island not allowing motor vehicles. The Grand Hotel features tons of great activities including an Ice Cream Parlor, shops, golf course, salon and spa, tennis, live music, lawn games, and so much more.
