Non-Guest Activities

For the experience of it, for the magic of it. We offer Mackinac Island visitors a variety of ways to enjoy the Grand Hotel experience.

Admission Fee

To enter the hotel and explore our grounds, there is a $10.00 admission fee for ages 10 and up and $5.00 for ages 6-9. Admission is complimentary for ages 5 and under. Admission includes a self-guided tour of the hotel, so visitors can experience the hotel and grounds, including our collection from the Manoogian Art Gallery. Admission tickets may be purchased on site or online.

Golf on The Jewel

Golf is open to the public at The Jewel, one of the most unique courses in the United States. Enjoy unparalleled scenic beauty, lush landscaping, and meticulously manicured tees, fairways, and greens.



Sadie’s Ice Cream Parlor

Sadie’s Ice Cream Parlor offers delicious Guernsey Farms Dairy Ice Cream in a variety of flavors. It is located outside the hotel’s east entrance near Cadotte Avenue and is open to all visitors, with no hotel admission fee.



Each of our Grand Hotel restaurants and bars is open to non-hotel guests — whether it’s at the hotel or on Mackinac Island — and dining in the Main Dining Room is very popular with guests and visitors alike. However, you may have to pay an admission fee to enter the hotel and grounds, depending on the restaurant and time of day.
