The Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in northern Michigan is a historic hotel built in the late 19th century and made famous in the 1980 movie Somewhere in Time, a love story starring Christoper Reeve and Jane Seymour. This photo was taken in June 2012 during the 125th anniversary celebration of the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. This hotel is also known for having the longest front porch of any hotel in the world. The front porch of the Grand Hotel runs nearly the entire length of the hotel.
The interior of the Grand Hotel features much of the original architecture of the building. There are several museums and galleries located within the hotel and non-guests are charged a $10 fee to enter the hotel to look around. Of the museums and galleries in the hotel, there is a small exhibit featuring photos and props from the movie Somewhere in Time including a hat worn by Christopher Reeve as well as the original Grand Hotel model that plays the music that is the theme for the Somewhere in Time movie.
I was also able to capture several beautiful HDR photos of the dining room at the Grand Hotel as well as photos of the lobby at the Grand Hotel in vibrant detail. Be sure to see my full gallery of Grand Hotel photos, including photos taken from the front porch, of the green velvet couches and several others!
