Reservation Information


Hotel Walloon and the surrounding Village of Walloon Lake are truly hidden gems. Traditional rates offer nightly accommodations as well as evening hors d'oeuvres on the day of arrival through breakfast on the day of departure in the Hotel Lobby. Additional food and beverage offerings and experiences are available through Walloon Lake Inn or from Barrel Back Restaurant offered as room service or in the restaurants during traditional dining times for an additional charge. Before you visit us, here are a few things to know for the best guest experience.


We guarantee your room to be ready at 4:00pm on your arrival day. Check-out time is 11:00am. In some instances, early arrivals after 12:00pm and late check-outs can be accommodated. An additional half day rate may be charged if applicable. If you plan to arrive prior to 4:00pm please notify the Concierge so you can enjoy the many activities Hotel Walloon and the surrounding area have to offer while your room is being prepared.



It is the policy of Hotel Walloon to always reserve Friday and Saturday together. During the peak season, two additional consecutive days must also be included. Some holidays, including 4th of July Weekend, may require a four night minimum with specific dates.



A deposit in the amount of the first night room rate is required at the time of reservation. The balance of your stay will be authorized upon your arrival.



Due to our size, cancellations affect us significantly; therefore, we adhere to strict cancellation policies. Cancellations that occur closer to arrival are subject to forfeiture of the deposit.

Reservations surrounding the Fourth of July must be canceled or changed outside two (2) months before the arrival date and require a non-refundable deposit of half of the reservation amount at that time. The remaining balance will be charged one (1) month prior. Reservations canceled within one month of arrival will forfeit the entire prepaid amount. A specific four (4) night minimum length of stay is required surrounding this holiday, as determined by the Hotel.

Reservations arriving Memorial Day through Labor Day Weekend and Christmas Eve through New Year’s Day must be cancelled outside of fourteen (14) days prior to the arrival date. Deposits will be forfeited on reservations cancelled within the cancellation period.

Reservations arriving outside of the dates above must be cancelled outside of seven (7) days prior to the arrival date. Deposits will be forfeited on reservations cancelled within the cancellation period.
