"The Shadow Trails Inn on Walloon Lake was truly the perfect location for a high level event I recently planned. Not only did it feel like the perfect vacation property for a large family, it was also extremely fitting for my event as well. The outdoor area that is located right on the water couldn't be more perfect! It provides plenty of great seating, a fit pit and fabulous views literally right on the water. The lodge is more spacious than you can even image from the photos and the amenities were perfect! I couldn't have been more thankful to find this property and couldn't have asked for better service from the owners. We look forward to returning!"

"This is our 3rd July in a row at the Guest Cottage and the 1st stay after the remodel. We have 5 to 6 teenagers (boys and girls) ranging from 15 to 22 and they all love it. With the clearness of the lake, the sand bottom, and seclusion of the cottage, it feels like a combo vacation - all the privacy of a mountain getaway combined with the fun in the sun of a beach stay. The dock is so relaxing, we get up early to go down and sit with our morning coffee and enjoy the peace and quiet. The setup of the dock and mooring buoys make it perfect for boats and jet skis. The lake is beautiful. Coming from Kentucky where most of the lakes are from flood control, the clearness of Walloon was stunning! The cottage is very comfortable. The kids like to gather in the basement to watch movies. The remodel enlarged the main bathroom, added kitchen counter space, and brightened all the rooms. The owners are fantastic and we actually had the opportunity to meet them in person this year! We all had a fabulous time sharing stories and watching the sunset. For folks who like to get out, there are three towns within 20 minutes - Petoskey, Charlevoix, and Boyne City. If you go make sure to check out Johan's for pasties! They even have one in Walloon Village. I highly recommend either house for a relaxing get away or a base for sightseeing or adventuring."

"Everything was perfect - from the overall decor to the appliances in the kitchen and even the chairs on the dock - making the stay just wonderful. It was easy to ease right into vacation mode. Every bedroom overlooks the lake and with two porches and a balcony everyone can find their place to escape or spend time together. The ride in was so picturesque, the rolling hills into Petoskey - awe-inspiring! Our family enjoyed every minute at this beautiful cottage on Walloon Lake!"

"This house was perfect for our family of 15!! The bedrooms were comfortable and the family room area on the second floor was great for grandkids slumber parties and movie watching.
Paul was a wonderful "land lord" who gave us very helpful information on the area and things to see and do. He was easily accessable.
The thing I would fix is the sink drain and definitely add a garbage disposal.
It was a perfect week celebrating our youngest sons marriage at The Inn At Bay Harbor.
Thank you for sharing such a treasure!!!
The Daugherty, Sneider, Tollison, Crouse, and Prada families"
