  • Absolutely Perfect Cottage and Location on a Beautiful Lake!

    "We just returned from a weeks stay at Walloon Lake with our 10, 8 and 6 year old and could not have been more pleased with the cottage and location. The cottage is located on the perfect spot on the lake to enjoy gorgeous sunsets from the well positioned decks, back porch or the dock while dangling your feet in the clear water. The cottage is very comfortable, clean, updated and well thought out for vacationers to enjoy. The owner was very attentive to ensuring we had everything we needed to enjoy the week. Walloon Lake is a beautiful lake with a great vibe - friendly people, great area with a bakery, local shops and a restaurant to boat to which we did many times. The location is also a short drive to downtown Petoskey, Bay Harbor, Charlevoix and Harbor Springs to enjoy boutique shopping and great restaurants. We would highly recommend this property and look forward to a return visit!"

  • A great Family Home !!

    "In June 2014 our entire family (6 adults, one nanny and 5 grandkids under 5) enjoyed a wonderful here and highly recommend it for other families. The location is superb, just a mile to the "foot" and 15 minutes to Petosky. The kids were able to walk right into the shallow water! The owners have thought of everything so don't bring much more than yourself !! The new sliding doors to the lawn and lakefront create a spectacular vista for sunsets/firepit evenings. The huge master suite with luxury bath is truly first class. There is a large porch across the front (great for dining) and a patio in the back of the home provides additional living space. Lot's of space for a large group. The office which is part of the master suite is a huge plus if you need to "work" while there. We're back for 2015 !!"

  • Incredible Location and property!

    "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!"

  • Very good family cottage - excellent owners

    "I stayed here the week of July 12th - 19th with my family and four + two grandparents, so 6 people total. The cottage is spacious and when we arrived it was clean. There was more than enough room for the six of us. The view of the lake from the kitchen, front sitting area and front porch is beautiful. Both the downstairs and upstairs have quite a bit of room, although the upstairs master bath shower is somewhat small (minor inconvenience). We utilized the large upstairs "common area" quite a bit and it was nice to have the space on the one rainy day. The owner, Paul really stood out. From the time we contacted him regarding booking the cottage he was extremely helpful and communicative. We had the microwave go on the fritz when we were there and he had a brand new one delivered within hours (after telling him it was not urgent and no rush). Thanks Paul for a great week that my family truly enjoyed."

Walloon Lake Travel Tips

The Catch of the Day Awaits at Walloon Lake Vacation Rentals

If you're looking for a great summer home where you can get some real fishing done, look no further than Walloon Lake, Michigan. See why author Ernest Hemingway gushed about the area after spending more than 20 summers here. There's still plenty of Walloon Lake lodging available for this summer, so start looking at the Northwest Michigan lake houses available now.

Enjoy Walloon Lake from the Comfort of Your Own Vacation Home

Sick of the cramped, boring, stressful atmosphere of hotels? Who isn't? Fortunately, you can ditch the hotels forever once you step foot inside your first vacation home. Don't worry about relying on room service and continental breakfasts when you have an entire kitchen at your disposal. Don't listen to any more squabbles about who has to sleep on the cot when you've got enough bedrooms to sleep everybody comfortably. Don't wait in line to shower in time for checkout when there are multiple bathrooms to take advantage of.

Walloon Lake Has Something for Everyone

Particularly, Walloon Lake is great for fisherman. Grab the poles, drop the anchor, and you'll soon find the walleye, perch, northern pike, rock, small mouth bass, and trout that call the area home. Experience first-hand the area described in luscious detail by Ernest Hemingway in his Nick Adams stories. The locals and visitors alike love the 100-foot deep waters that are perfect for boating or swimming. There's also plenty of shopping, dining, parks and trails to keep the whole family active all summer long.
