As the filming location for the movie Somewhere in Time, the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is the perfect destination to hold a special weekend remembering the great romantic movie.
A passionate weekend could not be better spent than celebrating the memories of a classic romantic film at the location of its filming. Somewhere in Time was released in 1980, starring Christopher Reeves and Jane Seymour. In the movie Reeves' character uses hypnosis to find an actress in a portrait he had seen. Much of Mackinac Island and the Grand Hotel are used as the setting for the movie.
In this weekend event, you and your significant other can enjoy a special screening of the classic film, visit with present cast and crew members, and attend a discussion of the movie's production process. Guests are also invited to make an appearance at the cocktail receptions, costume ball, and Grand Luncheon Buffet.
Along with the film specials, guests are welcome to spend the days at any of the various activities around the hotel and Mackinac Island. Astor's Salon makes for an even more relaxing weekend, giving facials, massages, manicures and more either in the salon or in your room. The hotel's gardens are legendary for their beautiful and fragrant enhancement of guests' experiences. Horseback riding, bicycling, and carriage tours are all available around the island. There are also two butterfly conservatories that offer visitors the chance to see native and exotic species up close and personal.
If you're looking for a romantic weekend away, the Somewhere in Time weekend is the perfect chance to spend time together and relax.
