Hotel Walloon, where guests can enjoy the charm and hospitality of the early twentieth century along with the comforts of every modern amenity. Settled against the breathtaking backdrop of Walloon Lake, this independently owned and operated boutique hotel features 32 unique, elegant and comfortable guest rooms.
Centrally located between Petoskey, Boyne City, Harbor Springs, Charlevoix, Traverse City and Mackinaw, Hotel Walloon is the perfect “home away from home” to enjoy all the adventure Northern Michigan has to offer. We look forward to exceeding guest expectations and adhering to the highest standards of quality, hospitality and character in Northern Michigan.
My husband and I have been traveling to Northern Michigan for several years and have searched in vain to find that perfect hotel we want to return to year after year … until we stayed at Hotel Walloon! Wow! This is exactly what we’ve been looking for! The property is beautiful, as is the adjacent lake. The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. We spent a lot of time lounging near the lake at the hotel’s private beach area … glorious! The staff was friendly and efficient. My husband and I loved the fact that there was always some sort of refreshment available in the lobby – pastries, yogurt parfaits for breakfast, cookies and lemonade during the day, appetizers in the evening. And there were little chocolates on the nightstand after turn down service! The service, the property and the amenities exceeded my expectations. I can’t wait to return!
An absolutely wonderful experience at Hotel Walloon! This is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed at. The friendliness, attention to detail and over the top extras are worth a visit. Truly a special place. The entire staff was so friendly, and made you feel like part of a family. We can’t wait to return.
Hotel Walloon was absolute perfection. I honestly wish I could give more than 5 stars because they truly deserve it. From the moment we reached out for a quote they were nothing but attentive, genuine, hospitable and accommodating. We instantly felt comfortable and knew we were in good hands. The entire staff is focused on the guests feeling at home. All of our wedding guests stayed at the hotel and have continued to rave about the service.
We stayed for an extended weekend and the hotel and staff were wonderful. The hotel is beautiful and well decorated and the location on Walloon Lake makes you feel you are in a fairy tale. The hotel is near many amazing places in northern Michigan and it is easy to fill your days with activities and scenic wonders should you wish to do so. A definite must stay in the area.
I hope this hotel never goes away. You know the expression, “The longer you wait- the better things get?” Well, I’ve waited my entire life for a luxury hotel in Northern Michigan. A hotel that can satisfy my tasteful expectations and luxury needs with proximity to water sports and snow sports. A year-round operation with so much to offer for every season. Hotel Walloon, please tell me you’re here to stay?!
The best part(s) of this hotel is the service and the staff. Incredible at every hour of the day and night. The hotel staff are friendly, professional and go out of their way for their guests. No such thing as a special request. EVERY request is special to them.
And I want to talk a little bit about the design and attractive features of this hotel. It is obvious that details mattered most when this hotel was built. The unlacquered brass fixtures, lighting, granite and marble surfaces and Oriental rugs are in great taste everywhere. The decor is rich, yet subtle, but entirely appropriate to old-school Walloon Lake. I liken the look and interiors of this hotel to a luxury boutique hotel in Vermont, Connecticut or a manor-house hotel in the English countryside.
Thank you again for a terrific stay. I am already planning to buy a spectacular book and save it. Save it for my next stay at Hotel Walloon when I can sit in front of the fire and read it. I know the chocolate covered almonds and hot apple cider will be readily available. I’ll be dreaming about the Snickerdoodle cookies until then. See you next time. I’m coming back!
