The couse had just opened for the season when we were there. Still not in peak playing condo but it was included in our Grand Hotel package, although carts were provided for $50 per golfer. We had an enjoyable round. The front is quite hilly, and there is ample water on both nines to provide some true challenges. The ride... More

Hotel is breathtaking! Location is fabulous! Lots of land to roam around, the view from the porch of the bridge is relaxing. The rooms are charming and the food is great!

We stayed for a week and had such a great time. Always wanted to go and we finally did. Loved the walks around the island. The dinners at night are 5 star. I recommend this place to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed playing a game of golf....the course was spectacular with all the fall colors. The course was not crowded so we were able to enjoy playing without feeling pushed! Loved shopping in the pro shop with the end of season 50% off!

I have had lunch here numerous times when I visit Grand Hotel. Dining outdoors in a pleasant atmosphere is always delightful. The service is always top notch and the food and selection is good. Try it--you'll like it!

This is the hotel from the film "Somewhere in time" with Christopher Reeve. What a place, it will cost you $10.00 to go in but it is worth every cent. Once inside go to the top, order a drink or just sit and admire the view. Overall the hotel looks like it is stuck somewhere in time but it is... More

Hotel needs alot of help. Not especially clean. Nobody tells you anything when you check in - ie: horse taxi's, dinner, dress, etc. It is definitely a convention center now. Nobody shows you to the room. A true disappointment. I would just pay the $10 and see the hotel and then check into one of the other fabulous B&B on... More

What a grand hotel! It lives up to all the wonderful things we have heard. Just a beautiful hotel: lobby, the porch, the shops, the dining room (5 course dinner was excellent - we were treated like royalty) Sitting on the porch just relaxing and watching the lakes. - You have to see the porch & the rooms- it was...
