Joann's Fudge of Mackinac Island

It’s back to school time and we wish all students the best. Whether it’s in person or virtual we know the start of this year has many challenges. We would like to send a fudge treat to a teacher as a way to say thank you. We are grateful for all your extra hard work.
Simply type the name of a teacher you know in the comments below this post (tag if you can) We will pick 6 teachers at random on Thursday at 8pm.

Grand Hotel

After a lovely 3 day weekend, the pool closes for the season and we turn to bike rides and rounds on the green in the crisp fall air.

Even better? We will be renovating the pool during the offseason this year. You know what they say, when one door closes, another bigger, better era of the Esther Williams pool opens!

Comment on Facebook After a lovely 3 day...

So sad to see the changes going on, that are not for the better. Slimming down the dinner menus, putting a big slide in that historic pool. Not returning Carlton Varney personal possessions. I'm worried about a corporation taking over, with no appreciation for the traditions they've inherited. This hotel was grand, hopefully it stays that way. Not sure that will be the case when they are done with the changes they are making.

The previous owners had it open throughout the full season. Typical of new owners. ☹️☹️

Can't wait to see the pool next summer!

Visiting in a week... are you still able to swim like in years past but with no heat???

Bring back the Worm and we’ll really be getting somewhere.

Looks like they enjoyed themselves.

Do they still have the Winsome Womens retreat there?

Happy to be visiting this October for a 2 night stay! Hoping fall colors will be at peak! πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸƒπŸ

Don't change too much! We love it the way it is.

Nice to solar heat it.

I can’t wait to see it !😎

What kind of renovations?

Sweet !

Haan's 1830 Inn

We aren’t the newest, flashiest, most trendy bed and breakfast. We are β€œold souls.” Giving you the authentic Historic Mackinac experience. Antiques from the 1800s that have their own souls. The smell of home baked bread and old books is in the air. We value quiet times on the porch. Long walks in the woods. Breakfast by lantern-light. Are you looking for a vacation that inspires you?

We loved staying there back in August! We love "old souls", time on the porch, long walks (like all 8 miles around the island) and fresh baked bread! Will definitely stay again! πŸ’™

Precisely! Spot on! and, this photo and your prosaic description really make us yearn to return. You are doing an incredible job with Haan's. I hope you are filled with satisfaction at the joy you so freely give others. Thanks for a great and warm post! Love from us OLD seasonal innkeepers! Mike and Barb

Sure missed being there this year. Looking forward to next year with the oatmeal fruit bake and egg,potato,meat casserole as well as the fresh baked bread,etc.

We are enjoying Haan’s’ right now! We love it.

Gorgeous!

Like spending time with family πŸ’“πŸ’“

I feel so validated! Whenever I go to Zehnder's in Frankenmuth I always spread some of the preserves on the bread with their pate and my family thinks I'm crazy. I call it my fancy PBJ- Pate, Bread, and Jam! lol

one of my favorite things at the Woods. sorry to say I will miss it this yearπŸ₯Ί

Perfect timing β€” right as we reached the water after hiking two miles, we saw this couple coasting in a canoe. I grabbed the GoPro as fast as I could to capture this perfect moment with the mountains in the background. This all happened within probably 3 seconds before the gentleman got out of the canoe to pack up.

This is why I love shooting with #GoPro. Moments like these can happen so quickly, and if I only had my mirrorless camera I know I would’ve struggled to get it set up in time. All I had to do was grab my GoPro that was mounted to my backpack’s should strap, turn it on and press the shutter, all within 3 seconds. #GoProHERO8 #GoProFamily #GrandTeton Grand Teton National Park
