This is one half of the Porch that runs the entire length at the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island. The other half is just as long. The Porch overlooks its beautiful, well-manicured gardens. The first five yellow awnings is where the Parlor is located, while the two white awnings are a secondary entrance into the Main Dining Room, and the remaining yellow awnings are the Main Dining Room. On the opposite side of the porch lie the Parlor and private rooms.
The Grand Hotel is a historic hotel and coastal resort on Mackinac Island, Michigan, a small island located at the eastern end of the Straits of Mackinac within Lake Huron between the state's Upper and Lower Peninsulas. Constructed in the late 19th century, the facility advertises itself as having the world's largest porch. The Grand Hotel is well known for a number of notable visitors, including five U.S. presidents, Russian presidents Vladimir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev, inventor Thomas Edison, and author Mark Twain.
