Mackinaw Island

Mackinaw Island - Grand Hotel
Mackinaw is a pleasant island located in northern Michigan. No cars, only bikes and horses. It has everything from touristy shops to unspoiled nature. If you despise touristy shops then I suggest you stay off the main strip. (But then you won't get any fudge...and afterall, isn't it really all about the fudge?) Take a pleasant stroll, or better yet, bike ride, around the island. And getting there is half the fun! Northern Michigan is spectacular in any season. To get to Mackinac you must take a ferry. That's when the fun begins. Look how blue the water is!
This is 'Michigan Blue'.
 As long as you're going, you might as well stay at the finest hotel on the island. That would be the GRAND HOTEL. It is not cheap. It is worth the price, however. You won't be disappointed. This is a view from the very large porch. Lots of seating...rocking chairs to be precise. Lots of them. A good place to start your day with a cup of coffee.

 Every guest room is different. This was ours.

Just outside the hotel doors is a golf course. Lovely place to sit in the sun.
