For more than a century, the legendary Grand Hotel gardens have provided a beautiful enhancement to our guest experience. Century-old lilacs, white cedar, and maple trees provide dramatic structure, while perennials and annuals by the tens of thousands contribute bursts of color throughout Grand Hotel’s season, thanks to the ideal climate of a Mackinac summer.
See over 150 varieties of flowers during a single visit, including geraniums, roses, peonies, coleus, garden heliotropes, cosmos, lilies, daisies, and begonias.
The Secret Garden
Providing a new experience each and every season, our Secret Garden is a Grand Hotel highlight and a favorite spot for guests (especially for those who can find it). Located in a large area in the middle of the gardens, but still very much hidden, it features two distinct sections: one full of perennials and the other dedicated to a spring flower bulb display, which is then replanted with ever-changing annuals for bright splashes of color.
If you can’t find the Secret Garden, not to worry. There are a couple of established paths on the hotel grounds that run right through it. And if it still eludes your search, staff are happy to show the way.
