The Walloon Lake Inn was built on the historic shores of Walloon lake in 1891 to serve as a boarding house for vacationers who traveled up the Grand Rapids and Indiana Railway. The historic Inn has continuously served guests for the past 124 years. Originally named “the Fern Cottage” and later the “Silver Birch Lodge”, in 1981, it was finally branded the Walloon Lake Inn.

At the Walloon Lake Inn our foods will be fresh, locally sourced, seasonally appropriate and will combine both modern and traditional American styles. We will consistently provide our customers engaging, efficient, knowledgeable, and professional service. We keep our concept fresh, exciting and on the cutting edge of the hospitality industry — creating and maintaining the highest standard for dining in Northern Michigan.

Reservations are recommended, but not required.
