Who would have known that the dream of Mary Eunice Gallanger, on October 7, 1870 at a cost of $500, would have resulted in two treasured hideaways of Mackinac Island, Chateau Lorraine and Pine Cottage Bed & Breakfasts.
Born on the island of Irish immigrants in 1859, Mary Eunice Gallagher, "Mamamie" in the time would have the visions of being one of the first female property owners and of constructing one of the first hotels, Pine Cottage. It was constructed seventeen years before the Grand Hotel, and the first with steam heat. Being the first winter boarding house, the home housed the school teachers, and occaisionally the priest. Meanwhile, Chateau Lorraine was the family 's residence.
