The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is one of the most lovely Victorian buildings in Michigan, and boasts the world’s longest porch. The graceful porch with its light blue ceilings and yards of red geraniums is an inspiring and relaxing place to sit on summer day, with a great view of the gardens, other island buildings, and the Mackinac Bridge. Although there are many fetching flowers surrounding the property, the red geranium is the theme flower of the Grand Hotel, and is featured prominently on the porch and in the decor of the building throughout.

Wizard chess anyone?

Looks like a great vacation spot.
It is, although there are less expensive places to stay on the island.
Very pretty, how lovely to stay there.
I guess I’ll never know – I’m too thrifty to pay their exorbitant prices – but I did attend a conference there, so I got to hang out on the porch and the public areas.
Love these photos. Thanks for sharing.
Sorry I missed out on your posts for quite a while. Have a lot of catching up to do. All your photos look wonderful. Hope so find some time soon to read up on them. I’ll be back! Aunty Uta
