Letterwinners Exclusive: August Package at Grand Hotel
Have we got a great summer vacation idea for you. And your family is invited, too.
Thanks to the generosity of one of the best Michigan baseball players in the history of the program and a legendary national historic landmark, your Letterwinners M Club is proud to make an exclusive offer to all members and their families to stay at one of the U.S.'s finest resort hotels, Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, Michigan.
From Friday, August 23 to Sunday, August 25, Ken Hayward (1982-1985), Michigan's career leader in batting average (.375) and RBI (207), and now Executive Vice President and Managing Director of the Grand Hotel, will host the Letterwinners M Club's exclusive two-night package at what Conde Nast Traveler and Travel & Leisure magazines consider one of the finest resorts for families in North America.
Since 1887, the Grand Hotel, which celebrated its 125th anniversary in 2012, has been visited by U.S. presidents, celebrities, and countless families from all over the world. The hotel gained extensive notoriety as the setting for "Somewhere in Time," the 1980 movie starring the late Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour.
At just $950 for two guests for two nights (children under 12 stay and eat free), the package is a great value and significant discount from Grand Hotel's typical peak August rates. Included in the Letterwinners' rate is a full breakfast and five-course dinner for all guests on both days; free golf on The Jewel; the Letterwinners M Club golf tournament on Saturday; Friday evening's welcome reception at the newly renovated Stroh Cottage on Mackinac Island's legendary West Bluff, overlooking the Mackinac Bridge; and a private dinner Saturday evening.
Plenty of activities for the entire family
What if you don't golf? There's still plenty to do at Grand Hotel! Relax at the legendary Esther Williams Swimming Pool, or really unwind at Astor's Salon and Spa. Play tennis, rent bikes, take a carriage tour, or drive your own horse-drawn carriage and explore Mackinac Island (cars are not allowed on the island). Enjoy the hotel's many shops, tour historic Fort Mackinaw, go geo-caching, or just unwind with a good book and a cocktail in a rocking chair on the Grand Hotel porch, which is the world's longest.
