Been to that park. It is so beautiful and so serene.

It doesn’t look very different today

My daughter and I were at our family's place last week. Missed the color at the tunnel of trees but loved our time walking into town. Was surprised how busy town was later in the week. But that's a good thing. I've heard about some remarks about some family that owns half the city and would like to steer clear but I don't know what all they own. 65 years old and I've only missed being there once or twice. Our little slice of heaven.

The 2nd and 3rd weeks of September are absolutely perfect times to visit that area! Gorgeous weather...less crowds...end of season sales1

My traveling buddy left me I would have loved to go up there again. Maybe one day she will come back for a visit and we can go if we can get her to leave FL

Looking forward to our trip this Friday.

You know, the town is owned by one company. I keep hearing of how people are getting screwed by the hotels, restaurants, etc... St Ignace is headed in the same direction.

We were there Saturday it was packed.

Great photo of Main Street!

Love it

Going in 2 weeks ♥️

Town has been packed every weekend since Labor Day. We had a waiting list at the Keyhole for dinner last night.

I want to go

I was told that the island closes down after Labor Day.

HEY...!! the Keyhole Bar & Grill !!

With an outpouring of appreciation for you all…. I have to say THANK YOU… We have heard from hundreds of people sharing love, prayers, support and inquiring about my family and I and our Naples, Fl home and business ~~ so… I thought I had better update you all! ~~ My family, my crew, our homes and C3 Gardens shop location are all fortunately fine. The crew is engaged in a lot of clean up work for our clients that endured a lot of damage, and our community at large and we will continue that mission for the time being. We will most certainly be planting thousands of beautiful planters, overflowing with colorful blooms to spread cheer, hope, and love as SouthWest Florida rebuilds after Hurricane Ian… but for now, we focus on ensuring those that we know and care for, as well as those we don’t are safe, and supported. Soon I will be announcing a fundraising effort that I will be joining forces on with some colleagues and dear friends that will give aid directly to those most affected, quickly and efficiently, and make profound impact… and I will be asking you all to help me make that embrace of our fellow Americans, our fellow gardeners, a lasting one. Stay tuned in the coming days for a video with more details on that…. But in the mean time, thank you again for the thoughtful notes and best wishes. We really appreciate it. Love while you’ve got love to give, live while you’ve got life to live… cheers~ #swfl #hurricaneian #swflbusiness #naples #staytuned #givelove #makeanimpact #grateful ... See MoreSee Less

We’re so glad to hear you are all safe and doing what you love doing. Cheers back at you 🌺

So happy you hear you’re all safe! Look forward to the fundraiser.

Great message and great speaking with you today! ❤️

So happy to know you, your Family as well as your business are all intact. Prayers for all who sustained damage.♥️🌹

Happy to hear you safe

I was looking for organizations to donate to … I have family in Naples and cannot wait to support your fundraising and restoration effort! Bless you and your team.

So glad to hear you are all safe and able to extend a helping hand to those in need of assistance. Be safe as you help others who have been impacted by Ian. 💚💚💚🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

Thank you for sending us the good news about your family and crew!

So happy your family is safe

So glad to hear! Have family In Osprey that have some damage but all good. And family in Naples also all good!

So very happy you are fine! I am in Ft. Lauderdale - tornado, trees down and flooding, but was spared the worst. Praying for my West Coast neighbors 🙏♥️🙏 Heading to TVC and Mackinac Island in 2 weeks for some R&R … my happy places … I will be watching for your fundraiser.

So glad you are all safe. Just started following you and was not sure if Ian had impacted your location.

So glad you and family are safe!

Happy to see you and your family are

Original Murdick's Fudge

🍁FALL COLOR REPORT🍁
It's beginning to look (and feel) like fall on Mackinac Island. The leaves are slowly changing but like most years we're a bit delayed compared to our UP and Northern Michigan neighbors. In another week or two, the color should be popping on the Island! Stay tuned for more color and fall updates 🍂

1969 through 1972 we lived in th UP at the Air Force Base during the Vietnam War. We used to go to the Grand Hotel for lunch when we had visitors. We were very young. 1980s we took our three sons to the UP and we went to the Grand Hotel.2009 our son proposed to his wife on the porch at the Grand Hotel. 2020 they went back to the Grand Hotel to celebrate their 10th anniversary.First time I went I was a little girl and there was no bridge connecting the lower peninsula to the UP. We took a ferry. I am 82. It has been a part of our lives. We lived in Ohio.We now live in Florida.

Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary at Grand Hotel….❤️

Seeing the Grand Hotel in person was impressive! Staying there was awesome! Sitting down at this place setting for dinner was wonderful!

In the fall of 1980, we stayed on the island for our honeymoon, and had a dinner one night at the Grand, then we were hooked. Spring of 1981, we stayed two unforgettable nights. During the Lilac Festival in 2017 we booked the Anniversary package and had my heart almost pound out of my chest, when we opened our door to room 314. I cried when we walked in and looked out at the view, of eight windows overlooking the bridge. We felt so special, from the tea in the afternoon, to the private carriage tour. One of my favorite times, was sitting on the porch, relaxing and crocheting for hours, one afternoon. Thanks to the wonderful staff for keeping my iced tea full and providing snacks while allowing me to people watch, listening to the horses as they went by, all while enjoying the scenery of the round lighthouse, and the bridge. I think maybe it’s time to plan for another trip to the Grand next spring.

The Grand helped me recover from the loss of my late wife. It was our favorite place to vacation. After the funeral, I immediately went for a few days so the recovery would start. It helped so much!

Took the North American up from Chicago, summer ‘53 and stayed a week at the Grand Hotel. Wonderful experience! My grandparents had honeymooned there when it was brand new -

I love it only because of the movie, Some Where in Time.

Was there a few weeks ago for lunch. Loved finding the “Secret Garden.”

Just wrapped up a lovely weekend at The Grand. Our new favorite thing is sharing The Grand experience with our friends. This was the view from our room. #americassummerplace#CYM2022

I loved the dinners and the beautiful plates! Everything about our experience was very memorable!

Being there with my husband,daughter, and her little girl! Sitting on the front porch. Great meals and service!

Rocking on the beautiful 660 foot porch!

Stayed at the Grand for our 54th Anniversary. Private carriage ride around island cool beverage on porch. Stayed there many times but this was special.

We’ve been coming to the Grand for 41 years!

This one right here. Playing mini putt putt with my hubby. ❤️. P.S. I won!😊

One of my VERY Favorite places to go! LOVE LOVE LOVE the Grand on Mackinaw Island!👍❤️🥰👍

You also stare at our house on the other side of the straits!

Fell in love with the hotel when I saw somewhere in time. Found the room Christopher Reeve stayed in in the movie. Stayed there once and went back again on a bus trip and had lunch there and shopped there. We stayed off island as I was on a bus trip.

My Wedding in the Tea Garden . Loved staying there. The food was also fabulous .

Getting one of the balcony rooms and saying “quick….mess it up before they realize they made a mistake!” 🥰😂

I went there in 2009.it was beautiful..glad I went.

Walking up the road and seeing the Grand up close. Also, seeing the Grand come into focus while still on the ferry

My grandparents worked there

Staying at the hotel. Our window faced the lighthouse!

Had a great time, loved it all.

I did and I loved it !! And stayed at the island house !!what a great place !!

Perfect! I need to try it some time

I used to stay every year at the Island House back in the late 70s and early 80s Remember walking back after viewing Star Trek Wrath Of Khan which had played that night at the old college theater

I have had to many trips solo. Now..., well....

The island is so beautiful!

Been inside that smaller lighthouse just right of larger lighthouse back in the late 60’s. Kinda rocky to dock but we got on shore!

Stayed solo five or six years ago at The Island House. Enjoyed my time on the island. 🥰

I've sat in that same spot. 💜

6 inches of snow Oz

What’s it like this time of year?

I had to give up my fall solo trip. It’s killing me. I want to be on the island so bad.

My niece & I just returned yesterday….enjoyed many gardens on our walks.

The gardens are stunning, never saw gardens that were so manicured and thriving♥️

They certainly do a great job

We tourists get off the ferry & into our “Shangri-La” & forget that this is a hard working community that goes to work everyday. Thank you!

Indeed!

Very nice

And they do an amazing job!

Fall in the Peace Garden on Mackinac is a beautiful place to be… The ornamental grasses, hydrangea, and fiery maple leaves littering the sitting area are such a visual treat, but the smell in a fall garden is one that is truly unique to the season…. Don’t you just love it? It is the deep exhale before a nice long winter’s rest. #peace #garden #mackinac #fall #fallcolor #fallgarden ... See MoreSee Less

Beautiful! Thinking and praying for your family, friends, and Florida business.

Praying for your family, the C3 Crew, and all the other Floridians affected by the storm. Hope everyone is ok.

What a beautiful poetic way to put that. I even love the garden in the dead of winter . the structure of the frost in the ice on the branches and the leftover leaves the swirls in the snow after a windy day or a snowstorm.

Beautiful! Hope your place in Florida weather the storm.

Beautiful 🌺🍁 How is your family and Florida crew doing after hurricane Ian?

Was just there the other day….great place for reflection.

Add the smell of a bonfire and a hot toddy on a cold, crisp evening, wrapped up in a cozy warm blanket !

Sure is prettier than our landscape in Fort Myers. This is just gorggeous.

Super excited! We'll be there tomorrow!

I was there exactly a year ago, the gardens were magnificent one day and gone the next day. I got a brief moment to meet you on the east bluff.

Would love a update on your Florida world.

Love the white anemones!

I hope your Florida places are ok

Such a beautiful design.

Beautiful!! Prayers for Florida. 🙏❤️

Where is the Peace Garden? Heading to the island tomorrow

Phenomenal !

Outstanding!
