THE SHADOW TRAILS INN- 'THE LODGE' ON WALLOON LAKE

Walloon Lake Lodge Rental Photos and Description

Lodge, 7 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

The historic Shadow Trails Inn. The Lodge, as it it known locally, has been updated over each of the last four years years-- new dining room, new 1st floor master bedroom, 2nd floor media room, pantry, laundry room, stainless kitchen appliances, new gas fireplace, new beds and bedding, 3 remodeled bathrooms, new lakefront flagstone patio with path and steps directly to the lake.

Originally built in 1909, this red pine log home played a significant role as one of Walloon Lake's earliest fishing lodges. The Lodge is a featured landmark on historic section maps that continue to be reproduced today. It is one the last remaining authentic landmarks from early Walloon and the time of Hemmingway. Located on the South arm of the Walloon, the Lodge sits on 160 feet of flat, level lake frontage, and is only a few steps from the waters edge. In the true lodge spirit, the home features 3 field stone fireplaces and 7 bedrooms ( 1st floor master and 6 bedrooms on 2nd floor) and 3.5 baths.

Park your boat(s) on the private dock or use the kayaks and canoe for an afternoon paddle. Play basketball on your own court, or pull the group together for speedmitton, wiffle ball or croquet on the expansive side yard.

The Lodge has hosted and entertained vacationing families for more than 100 years. We invite you to join that traditon and be part of a special Walloon experience.

If you have questions about the Lodge, Walloon Lake, or Northern Michigan, please feel free to call or email anytime,

I am fourth generation at Walloon Lake and have lived here seasonally, summers and winters, for 53 years. One year, I liked it so much I stayed the whole year!!!

I love the history and traditions of Walloon, which inevitably are about the great experiences and memories created and shared with family and friends.

My two brothers, sister and I reunite with our families every summer and mix old memories with new. In the photo above, I'm driving a 1954 Chris Craft Utility 22, which my grandfather Bud Parrish purchased new at the lake in '54. It's a perfect compliment to the timeless warmth and familiariity of the Lodge.

Everyone knows the Shadow Trails Inn!! The Inn has hosted families from across the US. for more than 100 years.

It was serving guests when Ernest Hemmingway lived and fished on Walloon as a boy. It served public dinners in the old dining hall ( since removed) to my mother as a child and later my parents and their friends. When I was a teenager, The Inn hosted water ski tournaments and I'd spend the day on the shore with hundreds of others waiting my turn to crash and splash.

The Inn has had only a handful of owners, and when the opportunity arose to purchase, I jumped on it and have spent the last 5 years updating and improving the Lodge experience.

The reason the Shadow Trails Inn was built where it is, is pretty simple--location and lot features. Most winds on Walloon are N/NW. The lodge faces east and is shielded by a dense forest of mature Michigan pines. The lack of strong windage makes it possible to swim, kayak, canoe , tube , boat or just read a newspaper in the outdoor calm all day long.

The lot is wide and level, which is great for any outside activity. The lake bottom is sandy and smooth, ideal for children and families.
