One of the most majestic places to model our Michigan Midwest apparel...the world's longest porch at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. Famous models, actors & actresses have graced the porch, including ours if you can guess who this young icon is.
Mark Twain gave lectures at the Grand Hotel as part of a court judgement to pay back creditors after a failed typesetting and publishing company.
Jane Seymour and Christopher Reeve graced the island and their movie made such an impact that the hotel hosts annual Somewhere in Time weekends.
Jackie Kennedy, Betty Ford and Ladybird Johnson all have rooms named after them. Then Senator Joe Biden was a guest, President George H.W. Bush, President and Senator Clinton, President Ford, Vice President Pence, President Kennedy, and President Truman round out the biggest of politicians.
Jeff Daniels, Madonna & Bob Seger plus nearly all of the Ford Family lead the Michigan congregation who stayed there.
Toss in Arnold Palmer, Kate Upton, Jesse Owens, Justices Ruth Bader Ginsberg, & John Paul Stevens as guests.
Then there is the list of 'rumored' visitors...and it is quite long, so this is just a partial. Did they come in late on private boats and yachts under cover of darkness. 100%. Try this list, Tom Hanks, Jennifer Aniston & Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck, Bruce Willis, Meryl Streep...and the whopper rumor, Marilyn Monroe.
