For well more than a century, the legendary Grand Hotel gardens have provided beautiful (and oftentimes fragrant) visual enhancement of the guest experience. Century-old lilac, white cedar and maple trees serve as dramatic structure, while perennials and annuals by the tens of thousands provide abundant bursts of color throughout the Grand Hotel season, thanks to the ideal climate of a Mackinac summer. During any one visit, guests can see over 150 varieties of flowers, including geranium, rose, peony, coleus, garden heliotrope, cosmos, lily, daisy, and begonia.
During your stay, guided or unguided tours of the Grand Hotel Gardens can be arranged. For more about our gardens and Mary Stancik, head groundskeeper, read this Grand Haven Tribune article.
