Mackinac Island, MI (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Mission Point Resort on beautiful Mackinac Island announces its fall getaway packages, including the spooktacular “Ghost Hunter Package” are available for booking. Families and romantics looking for that perfect fall season getaway will be impressed with the variety, value, and excitement being offered for this unique destination.
September and October on Mackinac Island is a feast for the senses, as the changing colors and fresh, crisp air make an irresistible setting for a fall getaway experience. Anyone who has visited Mackinac Island knows that the only way to truly appreciate all that this exciting destination has to offer is to stay on the island overnight and nothing can compare to Mission Point Resort, one of the island's largest and most diverse resorts.
Leading the way this fall is the new “Ghost Hunter Package” which starts at just $159 per person, a savings of over $100. The Ghost Hunter Package includes two nights lodging, ferry tickets for two, breakfast each morning at Round island Bar and Grill, one dinner for two at Chianti, and a Haunts of Mackinac Ghost Tour for two. For an additional $30, guests can add an extra ghost hunt utilizing high tech spirit hunting equipment.
As seen on the Syfy Channel this year, during a frigid winter week, Mission Point was featured on the popular Ghost Hunters, where the team visited the island and resort for a ghostly investigation. The account of their bizarre experiences was featured in a one-hour episode aired on March 30, 2011 called "Frozen in Fear."
Now you can walk in the same footsteps as the Ghost Hunters and experience a similar investigation including the resort theatre and sound stage where a spirit named Harvey has been seen wandering the hotel. Guests will find out more about Harvey and other strange phenomena occurring at the resort from a most knowledgeable person, the hotel's haunting, author and Mackinac investigator, Todd Clements. The Haunting package and tours are also perfect for that Halloween party gathering in October!
