The Village of Walloon is the perfect location for a Northern Michigan wedding ceremony and reception. Walloon Lake’s aqua blue water creates a picturesque backdrop for any special event. Hotel Walloon offers brides and grooms a beach side ceremony and cocktail hour followed by dinner at The Talcott. After dinner, guests take the leisurely stroll back to Hotel Walloon for open air dancing and dessert along the shores of Walloon Lake.

Hotel Walloon has loved every Walloon Lake Wedding they have been part of. One of Hotel Walloon’s brides said this about her experience with the hotel: “When we first started planning our wedding we both agreed we wanted a venue that brought our family and friends together for an intimate, fun and unforgettable weekend – well, Hotel Walloon is just that! Hotel Walloon was absolute perfection. 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. All of our wedding guests stayed at the hotel and have continued to rave about the service. The entire staff is focused on the guests feeling at home.” To read more about this Michigan Beach Wedding, visit our page on The Knot!  Hotel Walloon was also recently part of a Petoskey area destination wedding that was featured on Style Me Pretty!
