Mackinac Island resorts, hotels offer fall travel specials

MACKINAC ISLAND, MI – If you are looking to escape the summer crowds and take a fall trip to one of Michigan’s most popular vacation spots, some Mackinac Island resorts and hotels now have autumn specials lined up for travelers.

The most up-to-date way to find the specials? Check the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau’s website, which offers a listing of all the special deals being offered by places big and small.

We’ve also got a run-down of special packages being offered by some of the most well-known spots, including the iconic Grand Hotel.

“Fall is a beautiful time to visit Grand Hotel and take in the change of season all over the island,” said Doug Dean, executive vice president of operations for the resort. “Starting late September through October guests can enjoy the amazing displays of northern Michigan colors from the comfort of a rocking chair on our famous front porch, through our magnificent room views, and by exploring the island and state park by foot or bike.”

Grand Hotel has a couple fall golf specials on tap, as well as a list of weekend themed packages that take the calendar all the way to its closing weekend over Halloween. Here’s a sampling:

On the sunrise side of the island, Mission Point Resort is also offering some fall deals. In this week’s newsletter, the sprawling resort is touting its Fall Experience package. Mission Point puts you right on the water with its Great Lawn, complete with Adirondack chairs that are perfect for relaxing. Its 18-hole putting course is just a short walk away, and it has both sit-down and grab-and go restaurant options.

Here’s Mission Point’s description of its Fall Experience package: “One of the most beautiful places to experience Michigan’s iconic fall foliage is Mackinac Island and this package offers the basics for a great fall island experience. Take time to explore Mackinac with bike rentals, a fun journal for kids to record their adventures, and food & beverage credits for any Mission Point dining outlet.” You can check pricing and make reservations online here.
