We are excited to introduce Sadie’s Ice Cream Parlor, named after Sadie who was awarded “Best in Show” at the 2010 Westminster Dog Show, and owned by hotel proprietors Mr. and Mrs. Musser. The perfect new addition to America’s Summer Place opened May 3rd, 2013 with a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 1st, 2013. The Ice Cream Parlor features 24 delicious flavors from Hudsonville Ice Cream, a Michigan-based company. In addition to ice cream cones, Sadie’s will feature shakes, sundaes and a special Grand Sundae built to share and served in a dog bone shaped bowl.This classic American ice cream parlor has been decorated by Grand Hotel’s interior designer Carleton Varney. Inside you will find cafe tables with white marble tops accompanied by cafe chairs with twisted iron. Outside will be custom twisted iron benches and cafe tables with black marble tops.The parlor is located outside the hotel’s east entrance, and open to all Mackinac Island visitors with no hotel admission fee.
