Contest Corner: A Different Kind of Grand Hotel Getaway

Enter to win a “Close the Grand for the Season” stay on Mackinac Island

I don’t usually run back-to-back contest notices,* but who doesn’t love a chance to win a visit to Mackinac Island’s Grand Hotel? This prize, however, has a twist.

It’s the “Close the Grand for the Season” package, a one-night stay for two as the 125-year old summer resort buttons up for the winter. This trip to the Straits of Mackinac property offers a different Grand Hotel experience—-there’s no formal dinner or full breakfast, which are traditionally included with the hotel rate. Just a casual buffet supper on the evening of arrival on Sunday, October 28 and continental breakfast Monday, October 29 before the 10 a.m. check-out time.

But the inspired decor of the hotel’s parlor and 385 unique guest rooms, the 660-foot porch—ideal for sipping a beverage while rocking in one of the white chairs—the landscaped resort grounds and the rest of the car-free island will be there to enjoy.

If you’d like a behind-the-scenes peek as the iconic hotel closes another grand season, register now at the Grand Hotel Facebook page.

Hurry! The winner will be chosen on Friday, August 31.

You can’t win if you don’t enter!
