A little more than 100 years ago, a quaint country inn on the shores of a pristine Northern Michigan lake opened its doors to travelers who trekked for hundreds of miles to enjoy the beauty of the jewel that lay before them – Walloon Lake.
Called Fern Cottage, the Inn was a destination for many visitors and also served as a docking point for the steamboats that would take the travelers to hotels or to their cottages on the lake.
Renamed the Walloon Lake Inn in 1981, the Inn operated as a bed and breakfast as well as a restaurant.
Today the Walloon Lake Inn is a unique upscale restaurant, which was totally renovated in 2014. It is a popular destination for people seeking a unique dining experience with a reputation of fantastic food, lovely atmosphere and superb service, with nightly music.
