“I scream…you scream…we all scream…for ice cream!”

One of the newest and sweetest delights of visiting Mackinac Island is Sadie’s Ice Cream Parlor at the base of The Grand Hotel. True to the island’s quaint Victorian-era heritage, this wonderfully decorated and out-fitted ice cream shop exudes history and fun.

DSC01858Open to everyone and anyone on the island since it debuted in 2013 (not just those staying at the hotel), Sadie’s scoops out Hudsonville Ice Cream products. The prices are very reasonable… especially considering you are at The Grand Hotel…$4.00 for a very hearty single-cup serving (easily two hearty scoops). The classic décor is pure 1890s and will charm your socks off, as will the images of Sadie herself – a cute Scottish Terrier owned by the hotel proprietors, who won Best in Show at the 2010 Westminster Dog Show.

Sadie’s tremendous location near the hotel’s east entrance is perfect for relaxing and people watching, as the carriages arrive and depart, and as visitors and island staff alike pedal up and coast down the steep Cadotte Avenue towards downtown. The next time you are on Mackinac Island, be sure to follow the horse-drawn carriages and make tracks to Sadie’s, as it will surely bring a smile to your face, warmth to your heart, and sweet, yummy tastes to your mouth. Enjoy!
