We came up for my nephews wedding. Roughly 80 people invaded Fish Town and Falling Waters Lodge. Wonderful place to stay. Rustic but comfortable. We needed more washcloths after a trip to the office cleaning staff appeared immediately. Short walking distance to town and cool shops to check out. it was very relaxing being on the docks and watching the... More

Stained sheets upon arrival, burnt out lightbulbs, terrible water quality and our room was full of hundreds of tiny flies that we could not get rid of. Also the bathroom vent was full of old fuzz and hair. WiFi must get turned off at 8 p.m, when the staff leaves and the town goes to bed. Worst hotel ever!! Spend... More

Our room with a sort of veranda was located facing the waterway and dam leading into Lake Michigan. While the room wasn't new, it was very comfortable and reasonably roomy. Ice machine was always full, and the people were both very pleasant and helpful. We would stay there again with no second thoughts!

I'm here now. The location is awesome. You get a front row view of the dam. Other than the view I wish I wasn't here. The rooms are horrid. Pubic hair all over the bathroom. Moldy rooms. I tried to book a room anywhere within an hour radius and it's all booked due to Labor Day weekend after checking in... More

FWL_Staff, General Manager at Falling Waters Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you for your feedback. It is upsetting that we did not reach your expectations. As a small family business with an incredibly hard working staff, these reviews truly keep us up at night. As General Manager, I am first to admit that Falling Waters Lodge has updates that are required in order to fulfill the wonderful potential that it... More

I read all of the bad reviews and was hesitant about staying here but I am so glad we did. We stayed in the penthouse. It was clean, the beds were comfortable. Great location to downtown Leland. When you asked for something the staff took care of it immediately, they were very friendly. When we were in our room you... More

Falling Waters is in a fantastic location in the heart of Leland, steps from Lake Michigan. Unfortunately the rooms are old and tired, and the carpet felt really dirty. There is tons of potential in this place - our room had a great set up with a queen bed downstairs and a queen + pullout in the loft, (although the... More

We love staying at Falling Waters because of its location right by the falls. It's so nice to sit on the balcony and watch the falls and look across to Fishtown. There have been some nice improvements since we stayed a couple years ago. We stayed in a room on the lower level which has been updated very nicely. Lovely... More

The rooms all seem to have a wonderful view of the falls and Fishtown. Pleasant and clean with places to sit on the deck. They have a refrigerator is each room. There is also danish and coffee in the morning.
