My friend and I are the fans of the movie Somewhere in Time. We want to see the Grand Hotel where the movie was made. The trip was wonderful. We had the Afternoon Tea by the window, a breathtaking view of the lake Huron. We walked everywhere on the beautiful island.

Beautiful island, beautiful Grand hotel. Scenic landscapes and homes. No automobiles, only bikes and horses and horse drawn carriages. Lunch at the Grand Hotel was nothing less than GRAND. Surely gained 10 lbs. on the luscious dessert choices. Thumbs up.

The first day has been great. The garden tours of the “cottages’ on the western bluff was wonderful! I enjoyed one of the seminars on garden design a lot.

We took the walking tour with Moira and really enjoyed the first half of the tour, which included many historical anecdotes. We walked up Cadotte Ave, up past the Grand Hotel, and on to the West Bluff. We enjoyed the homes on the West Bluff and Moira has many, many pictures to show you of them as you walk past. This is the part that eventually felt a little overdone... my son called it the "HGTV tour" of the island. We basically walked a loop up W. Bluff Rd., around Algonquin St. and back to Cadotte. I think the tour would be fine, but for the price, it really didn't deliver the depth of history we were expecting. I definitely think a carriage tour might be a better option.

Very informative and awesome views! Moira went above and beyond with our group. We went at a relaxed pace and she had time for all our questions. By the end of the tour our group felt like family. Highly recommended even if you've been coming to the island for years.
