As today is #NationalFudgeDay, we recommend indulging in a Grand Hotel favorite: our signature Grand Pecan Ball served with a decadent homemade fudge sauce. ⁠

In what was one of the sweetest mistakes ever made, a confectioner "fudged" a recipe for French caramels. The year was 1886, and the result? The world's first-ever batch of fudge. Although this delicious dessert wasn't invented on Mackinac Island, it was certainly perfected here, ultimately earning the island the moniker "America's Fudge Capital."⁠

Checking In! 🛎 This is the perfect Mackinac Island hotel for families, friends, and couples -
welcome to the islandhousemackinac

The islandhousemackinac is a historic family-owned hotel on Mackinac Island! I loved the ideal location of the hotel that’s close to downtown with gorgeous views of the harbor! Here’s a few of my favorite amenities unique to the Island House:

👙 Pack your swimsuit! The Island House is one of the few hotels on the island that has a heated indoor pool, hot tub, and sauna!

🍽 They have two fantastic indoor and outdoor restaurants on site! The 1852 Grill has gorgeous views overlooking the marina. They’re known for their fresh seafood. Ice House BBQ is a perfect spot for lunch on a warm summer day!

💫 Don’t miss stargazing outside on their lawn! After a full day of exploring, it was so nice to sit in an Adirondack chair and enjoy the fire from the chimineas.
