You’re invited to  Grand Hotel’s eighth annual History Weekend.

During your stay, Bob Tagatz, Grand Hotel’s historian and concierge, will take you on a fascinating journey through the history of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. Mr. Tagatz, named Historic Hotels of America 2014 Historian of the Year, is a natural story teller who will intrigue you with information about the hotel’s history and how the island and the hotel came to be what they are today. Enjoy information about celebrity guests, milestones and the story behind the wood structure built in 1887.

All guests will enjoy evening receptions and a full breakfast and five-course dinner daily as well as  the legendary Grand Luncheon Buffet on Saturday afternoon.

Fall is a great time of year to experience the island and Grand Hotel. Enjoy the solitude of the island as the tourism season has ended.

We hope to see you for this special event.
