Grand Hotel History Weekend – September 15 – 17, 2017

You’re invited to Grand Hotel’s 9th Annual History Weekend with a unique look into the story behind the wood structure built in 1887 as Grand Hotel celebrates its 130th Anniversary in 2017. Bob Tagatz, Grand Hotel’s Resident Historian and Concierge will take you on a fascinating journey through the history of Mackinac Island and Grand Hotel. Mr. Tagatz, named  Historic Hotels of America 2014 Historian of the Year, is a natural story teller who will intrigue you with information  about the hotel’s 130 year history and how the island and the hotel came to be what they are today.

All guests will enjoy evening receptions and a full breakfast and five-course dinner daily as well as  the legendary Grand Luncheon Buffet on Saturday afternoon.
