An endless porch lined with white rockers, bloom-filled flower boxes, a series of American flags hung as if to salute the Great Lakes---all this, and you’ve only just arrived. Built in 1887, it’s no surprise that Grand’s interior is a study in Victorian refinement—albeit one filtered through a contemporary lens. Many rooms have canopy beds as well as bold floral wallpaper and broad-stripe draperies—everything tied together in a coordinated mix of jewel-tones and pastels. Rates are high but include breakfast, lunch, and dinner in one of six restaurants. Lawn and vintage-league baseball games, carriage tours, garden strolls, and spa treatments are among the leisurely pursuits. You can also golf on the 18-hole Jewel course; play tennis on a clay court; swim in the huge pool; and bike, hike, or run along trails. There are children’s programs (ages 5 and up), and plenty of package deals.
Walking into this hotel is like stepping back in time. The decor in public space and guest rooms are regal and ornate. Every time I go to the hotel I see something new and unique. The views from the front porch of the straits are breathtaking and one of a kind.
This whole island is a place out of time, no motor cars or gas powered anything. Horses, bike, and walking for the ways to get around on the majority of the island and The Grand Hotel is the pick of the whole island for beauty and history. You can't miss a visit to The Grand while on the island even if you only have a drink on the "veranda"; come and enjoy the peace that comes from no noisy gas engines and no pollution except what the horses make!
Historic, Romantic & Beautiful.
