We were at this very comfortable lodge for a wedding anniversary. The lodge was clean, air conditioned, comfortable beds , open areas, gathering areas, great breakfasts, friendly staff and owners! I would recommend this place for family reunions, wedding accommodations,class reunions etc. There were 48 adults with us and lots of young children who could play safely!
Held a family reunion there in July 2018, with 45 people ranging in age from 7 months to 82 years young. Cozy lodge feel with plenty of room for everyone! Rooms for singles and families. We used the outdoor kitchen to cook meals, and had plenty of room for games and gathering. The lawn is beautiful and we enjoyed the two fire pits. The location is also great. It is close to Petoskey, Boyne City and Walloon Village. We went to the beach, visited farmers markets, local parks, wineries and craft breweries, and so much more. The owners are awesome and incredibly helpful. Breakfast is provided and they are pet friendly!
We held a family reunion here and it was great. We had the entire lodge for our large group (64). Mike & Monica are wonderful hosts. The breakfast included was very nice for a continental and the breakfast including eggs was delicious!! The rooms are rustic looking but they were clean and comfortable. The outdoor kitchen area and patio area worked great for our family meals. During the day everyone went in different directions, beach, sand dunes, canoeing. I would definitely stay here again. The only thing that would make it better is if it was right on the water, but it's only a 2 minute drive to the beach. 😎
The owners offered a clean, spacious room, and a comfortable bed. They also offered local knowledge on restaurants that were very helpful. The bathroom was a bit small but clean. This is a good no frills place to serve as a jumping off point to nearby activities in Charlevoix, Petoskey, or Boyne City.
A pleasant weekend stay. The lodge, while rustic, is comfortable and cozy. A nice breakfast and free wifi are included. There are common areas, an outdoor kitchen, board games. Elvyn Lea makes a nice base for exploring the area. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. It is only a short distance to the village of Walloon Lake with a store and restaurant.
