My parents are going to stay at Mackinac Island for their anniversary. I know my dad booked a standard hotel off of the island, but my step-mom's dream is to stay at the Grand Hotel (Somewhere In Time, anyone?).

I wanted to surprise them with a reservation for a night there. I just checked prices on-line for one of the nights they'll be there...the lowest rate was $655.70!!! For ONE NIGHT!

It includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but dear lawd! That's INSANE! Guess my poor mama is gonna have to keep on dreaming. :(

I think that's what I'm going to do. Maybe find them a couples massage and a nice dinner at the hotel.

And I love that movie, too. ;)

I do remember that movie! It's one of my BFF's favorites and she went to that hotel once, years ago. Can they go there for lunch or tea or a spa service?

I checked if they can go off season-in the fall, mid week, that same room is $311.

They're going the week after Mother's Day. My dad has a small restaurant and he wants to get away before his busy season starts.

Thank you for checking; that price is MUCH better, lol! Maybe I can convince him to close in the fall and take her up there again; her birthday is in October, so that would be perfect!

Book way early-they have a lot of dates crossed off-that was for midweek! Which, for a restaurant owner would be a good thing!  Do a Monday Tuesday.

I've been to the grand hotel on mackinak island, and it is beautiful! Their food is amazing HUGE buffets of amazing food, the interior is really beautiful too, I loved it there, & yes it is outrageously expensive. Maybe you can call to set up dinner or lunch reservations in the dining area?
