  • Another successful 'cottage week' up North.

    "we had a great week here at captain jack's place. the description is accurate and everything was clean, neat, and orderly. our 'chefs' loved the plancha, and we ate rather well that week, eating in almost every night. the second kitchen and bathroom was a nice bonus since we had a full house of adults. our ride out on the catamaran was smooth and relaxing. jack was prompt to answer any questions we had and address any concerns. we would not hesitage to rent here again."

  • very enjoyable

    "Great environment in a historical building that has been modernized. Clean, quiet, with an excellent view from the spacious porch. Living space is modest but we didn't mind as the overall experience was great. Located within walking distance of a wonderful bakery and coffee shop."

  • Soccer mom weekend

    "Beautiful area. Owner is very organized and the condo is super clean. Very quiet. I hope to come again next year. The condo complex should have better signage for condo units- hard to see at night."

  • Fabulous vacation

    "This is the third time we have stayed at this property, and again, it did not disappoint. There were some issues getting the keys in the mail (not anyone's fault, just issues with the post office, it seems!), but the owner and the maintenance man at the house were excellent to work with, and they got us a key. The house is huge, with everything we needed, including plenty of bedroom space for the four adults on our trip. The kitchen was well stocked with what we needed for breakfasts, which were the only meals we ate at the house. The house has a new Keurig, which was an excellent addition for the coffee drinkers in our group. The beds were so comfy, and it was fabulous to sleep with the windows open and smell the fresh air and hear the water from a stream that runs in the back of the property. We loved the woodsy atmosphere of the house, and loved taking walks in the quiet neighborhood in the mornings. We loved the game room, and had fun playing foosball, air hockey and ping pong late at night. We took day trips to Mackinac Island and the Upper Penninsula which were both excellent. We loved eating at some of our favorite restaurants, including The Side Door Saloon, Mim's for gyros, La Señorita, Turkey's, and our most favorite of every trip--Pond Hill Farm where we had lunch one day and went to a pig roast one night. Pond Hill Farm has amazing farm to table meals, a squash launcher, a trout pond, u-pick raspberries, as well as a new ice cream parlor. Of course, the wine and beer there is great, too! We did not use the jacuzzi at all this time around because we were so busy exploring the area. We did love the fire pit at night and had fun making s'mores and sitting around the fire. Would definitely recommend this to friends and family if they are traveling to northern Michigan. We cannot wait to come back and stay here in October!"

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.
