Always the first place I see when taking the ferry to the island. I always call it My White Lady.
I have never stayed at The Grand, but I can't imagine that it is better than this... It is REALLY EXQUISITE. Well worth the price. Am probably lower middle class at this point in time, but it is really worth sacrificing for. I can't say enough good things about it. I am a Michiganite and am forced to live in Florida. I truly wish that I could live there. If you can, please give it a try! Spend time out on the small beach. It really is delightful. Throw stones in the water. Go to Fort Holmes if you can make it there for a beautiful view!
