We have been lucky enough to be guest at your Inn. What a beautiful home and a beautiful Island.😍

Those homes look ‘summer’ bright and cheerful even in the winter.

We stayed at your inn quite a few years ago! It was wonderful!

Looks like it would make a great book cover

That's me standing in the 2nd story window of the turret

It’s beautiful

Beautiful!

haha. cute. They're like, "We never get to ride on the ferry and be snowbirds."

Ah..I miss the beauty of Michigan πŸ˜€

Jerry J Habedank

I read they have about 12 horses on the island through the winter. Great shot

Beautiful...

"(BEAUTIFUL)"..

I thought the horses were taken off the island for the winter

They're asking "Why did you leave us here in the snow? You trailer your Harley Davidsons south; why not us?"

wonderful

So pretty.

Beautiful!

Beautiful picture! Doesn't look like we will be riding our sleds over to the island this winter...That is always my favorite ride of the year!!

Great view.

Hope to go in September πŸ˜‰

Love

Beautiful

hopefully the photographer will go stand by the steps then, so the horses can see that view too!

Love the picture, thanks

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful picture!🐴🐴

Such a beautiful, peaceful place.

Love how they're both looking at the camera <3

Gorgeous picture! Love the horses!

Hey Danny!....I remember driving by this house!

Beautiful Mackinac Island

Absolute breathtakingly beautiful!

Mini Grand with snow.

Is Jack around somewhere? Like maybe in the maze?

Reminds me of the hotel from the shining

That is a beautiful picture of Mackinac Island

Ahh Beautiful! My beloved Mackinac. Makes me want to go in winter too. Planning a trip again for this summer.

All work and no play, makes Jack a dull boy!

It's very pretty. But this is why I tell people Michigan is a great place to be from. Take it from me

Very pretty but I'm happy to be in Florida and just looking at your photos!

ha ha ha just got a flash of The Shining...

One of my favorite house on the island

Always beautiful. Worked here for 5 summers, and unfortunately we always missed seeing this island this time of the year since we leave the island after Halloween:(

.a beautiful place enfolded in winter's soft white.....somewhere, somewhere in time....

Tiffani Rae-Schulte and Kristi Dupler: Road trip? Plenty of good rooms available!

A perfect place for a big snow angel!!!! Because it is heaven!

Is this up just above the horse stables?

πŸ’žβ›„οΈit just needs a snowman to complete the picture....love it!

Love the Island In the winter....even more enchanting than Summer!!!!

Now, THAT'S what i call "Pure Michigan". <3

I would Love to be there. Beautiful beyond words

staying on the island, one night looking out our hotel room window there was a truck on the street, I was told there is security and emergencies

Oh i want to move there i love snow

Really like the looks but don't want to be where it is

It is starting to feel like winter on Mackinac Island and across the State of Michigan. Sun glistening on the snow in January makes it a Pure Michigan type of day! Clouds and snow showers are forecasted a little later. ... See MoreSee Less

Live only 45 minutes and a ferry ride away. Life is good!!!

Beautiful.......Simply Beautiful!

I so wish I could afford to go back here! Just Beautiful and had such a wonderful time...

GRAB THE SLED, LETS GO!!!!!

I would love to go in the winter...

gorgeous pic of THE GRAND HOTEL

It's beautiful anytime of the year at Grand Hotel! Can't wait for May!

Beautiful picture! Love the blue sky!

Michigan is the most beautiful state there is. I would have moved back home after I retired, but my Husband doesn't do well in the cold weather. He wants to move to a warmer state, but we are stuck here for now. Maybe later in the future though.

Breathtaking. Have been there during summer and just beautiful.

I LOVE how that blue ceiling shines in that snow light!

Love this place wish we could afford to come back!!!!!!

We Love all the seasons there on the Island. Do you use horse plows there or engine driven?????β˜ƒβ˜ƒβ˜ƒ

Mackinac, nothing like it no matter what time of the year!

Even more beautiful in the winter!

Pretty in the sunshine !

The Grand is always beautiful. I've been once but would love to be able to go again.

Are you open in winter?

How do they plow the roads?

Oh I love it there! Last time was 45 years ago on our honeymoon! At that time we couldn't afford to stay at the Grand Hotel but we had lunch there!

So beautiful and peaceful, wish I could be there!

Beautiful even in the winter

Wonderful experience - would be cool ( sorry about the pun) to stay in the Winter - but it is not open.

Missing the Grand HotelπŸ’•

Somewhere In Time!!

Beautiful.I saw a program xmas Mackinaw .

My fave

That's a pretty picture.

Beautiful when you are in Florida 😎

I've never seen the island with snow. It's beautiful from Florida.

Wish I was there

Everybody got to ride their snowmobiles to town.

I would love to spend a week or so there in winter, not the whole winter, though.

Love Mackinac Island. Love Joanns fudge.

Nicole we should sneak away one winter !

I bet it doesn't smell like it it does in the summer. It will burn the hair right out of your nose.

This scenery is beautiful:)

Take away those snowmobiles and it could be any year.

I miss this! One of favorite places❀️

I hope everyone there enjoys the freedom to zip around the island on your snow machines!!!

Picture perfect.

I so want to snowmobile out to Mackinac Island again, Such a great trip.

We haven't been there in years but it is really a neat place.. Beautiful picture!

Looks like a Charles Wysocki jigsaw puzzle. ........

beautiful. I've never been to Mackinaw Isl in the winter.

Is anything open in winter on the island?

Halley Marie Schwab, we need a winter trip at the island

Never been there in the winter, it's on my bucket list.

LIKE A CHRISTMAS CARD, LOVELY. BARB

Hi Linda. It's Olga from California. Thank you so much for posting Macinac with snow. That is so beautiful. Some day we will come to visit snowy Macinac.
