October 2018

Photos and Words by Taylor Simpson

Settled atop the southern facing bluff on Mackinac Island lies a truly historic resort. Known for its expansive gardens, formal dress code, and top notch dining scene, it's no wonder the Grand Hotel is frequented by presidents, celebrities, and lovers of design.  

Legendary interior designer Carleton Varney created the common spaces of the hotel along with 397 unique guest rooms. Blending tradition with color and vintage with modern, Varney achieves the feeling of being at ones' exquisitely tasteful grandmother's home. There are new delights to discover around every turn and down every hallway.    

Starting at $269/night
