The Report:

Built in 1907, Leland Lodge was bought four years ago and was completely remodeled. With a new Wine Cellar for private events that takes after Cardinale Winery in Napa Valley, the lodge is minutes from Lake Michigan and historic Fishtown. They are also located on the 8th hole of the Leland Country Club golf course and if you choose to stay at the Lodge, you can golf. Other local activities include charter fishing, numerous wineries and breweries, beaches, site-seeing. They are open year round and have 3 different venues, 18 rooms, 3 cottages, and a restaurant on site.

Woman Getting Married Says:

Michigan brides have a lot of great “getaway” wedding venues in this area, and Leland Lodge is definitely one of them! The price per person is reasonable and they are willing to work within a couple’s budget. I would definitely try to arrange it so each hotel room is rented out, making it your own private lodge for a fun wedding weekend!
