IN MICHIGAN, A HEMINGWAY CELEBRATION

The 32-room Hotel Walloon, on Walloon Lake in northern Michigan where Ernest Hemingway spent many boyhood summers, is offering a three-day special event in tribute to the writer. Called “The Last Good Country,” it features a reception with Valerie Hemingway, his daughter-in-law and personal assistant, a boat tour of the lake and a fly-fishing demonstration marking the opening of trout season. Named after the writer’s description of the area, the special event takes place April 29 to May 1. Package rates start a $920 for two, including two nights, double occupancy, and all events.
