The Mackinac Island Ski club grooms trails on the east and north side of the Island in Mackinac Island State Park.
The cross country ski trails wind through the pristine woods of Mackinac Island State Park and allow the winter visitor to see all of the natural and historical landmarks of the island.
You can follow the ski trails to the interior of the island and take in the vistas from the highest point on the island at Fort Holmes. Or ski through the woods to Arch Rock and enjoy the view of Lake Huron from the bluffs on the eastern side of the island.
Here’s a collection of photos of Mackinac Island during the winter:

Hey I'm Shannon. I am the owner of Haan's 1830 Inn Bed and Breakfast on Mackinac Island, and from November through April the only person answering the phones and emails 😜
My favorite parts of running the Inn are:
1. My heartwarming guests. Seriously, they are all so lovely.
2. The creative things about the business - new recipes, garden planning, interior decorating, and so many more opportunities to be creative.
3. Promoting a space of peace and giving people a "home away from home" on Mackinac Island.
What questions do you have for me about running a bed and breakfast?...
Mackinac Island is a whole other world! We can’t begin to explain how much fun we had filming Elle and Stevens wedding. It was so exciting being on an island where the only transportation was by horse drawn carriage or bike, spending time at the historic Grand Hotel, and getting a front row seat to how fudge is made! 😍 can’t wait to be back on the Island for more weddings this year!

Thinking about lilacs and remembering my first turtle painting:
12x16” acrylic and chalk on wood
Legend has it that Mackinac Island was created on the back of a turtle named Makinauk. Makinauk was known for telling stories, and letting his friends rest on his back when they were tired. The outline of the island resembled Mackinauk’s large, rounded back, so Native Americans called the island Michilimackinac Island, or “Land of the Great Turtle.”
Do you know where this sculpture is located on Mackinac Island?
Take a trip to Mackinac Island! A 40 minute drive from the cottage to the ferry!
Hike, bike or kayak around the island! 🥾🚲🚣♀️Take an early ferry to maximize your time on the island!
A few things to keep in mind, the ferry leaves from two locations: St. Ignace and Mackinac City
When booking your tickets be sure you have selected the correct location. Also keep in mind that the times change depending on the season and day, so be sure to do your research online or over the phone prior!

#mygrandmemory is the collection of memories I’ve had over the years. It’s too difficult to choose one!
- learning how to cartwheel on the grass in front of the Grand Hotel.
- Riding down the hill on my bike with my mom frantically trying to catch up to me.
- In 2020, being the first trip since quarantine and the lesser crowd making it a very unique experience.
- Teaching a friend how to ride a bike for the first time in only a couple of hours.
- Walking out to arch rock until 1am only to find out we missed the northern lights at 3am.
I can’t wait for the next adventure on Mackinac Island and grandhotelmichigan
