About Waldenwoods

Come and celebrate your special day at the distinguished, award winning, historical Waldenwoods Banquet and Conference Center. Waldenwoods Resort and Banquet Center is one of Michigan’s most unique and romantic wedding venues, nestled among 400 acres of beautiful rolling countryside and overlooking the scenic shores of a private, spring-fed lake. This distinctive wedding facility includes equisite landscaping and manicured lawns, offering several breathtaking settings for your wedding ceremony and reception.

When you select Waldenwoods for your special day, you and your guests will experience a blending of the historical feel of a time when life was slow and simple, and the present where quality, convenience and service are paramount. The success of your wedding is our number one priority. We can assure you that you, your families, and your guests will experience the highest level of planning, individual attention, exceptional cuisine and outstanding guest service. Waldenwoods' first-class chef and his staff will provide exquisite cuisine that will delight your guests.

We understand that each bride and groom have their own dreams for their special day. Please know that we specialize in doing all the "little things" just right. Please share your ideas with us if you have something unique or out of the ordinary in mind.

From Memorial Day through Labor Day, in addition to our indoor wedding packages in the Cromaine Building, our Sunshine Garden Tent Wedding offers you the unique flavor of a complete outdoor wedding experience. Offering a breathtaking, lakeside ceremony site, complete wedding tent packages, and exceptional cuisine prepared by our head chef.

We can also assist you in planning the accompanying celebration events associated with your wedding: bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, and after wedding breakfast.

After the reception, your guests may choose to extend their stay overnight in one of our charming historical lodges. Each lodge has a large gathering room with a fireplace and view of the lake. Waldenwoods offers many amenities for overnight guests to enjoy, including swimming, fishing, sailing, and tennis. They may even decide to play a round of golf at the Majestic Golf Course, a 27-hole championship course designed by Jerry Matthews that parallels some of the most exclusive courses in Northern Michigan.


We are located with easy accessibility from Southeast and Central Michigan - just a one-hour drive from both Detroit and Lansing, and a mere 30 minutes from Flint and Ann Arbor. Waldenwoods has hosted couples from across Michigan, as well as several states and even other countries.

    Winter Wedding

    My husband and I just got married last Friday 12/14/18! We had both our ceremony and reception in the Cromaine Hall at Waldenwoods. It is such a beautiful venue and their service was phenomenal. Everyone was easy to work with, friendly, and quick to respond. We had everything we asked for and they were on top of everything, keeping things moving smoothly. They had people always accessible to help with anything we needed. All of the food we had was extremely tasty and that champagne was amazing! We received many compliments on the food, coffee, and the venue itself. Initially they seemed a little pricey but they include so much within their packages that in the long run they provided a better deal than many other places we considered and to us, they are well worth the price. We also booked the bridal room which I think was worth it as well, and it included lunch for up to 12 people which was definitely nice and needed lol. We absolutely would recommend Waldenwoods!

    Beautiful venue

    Waldenwoods was simply perfect for our wedding venue. The Cromaine lodge was beautiful inside and the view from the ceremy site was breath taking. The entire staff was pleasant and professional. I recommend getting the Friendship Lodge for your guest for the night.

    We Love Waldenwoods! Beautiful venue in both the lodge and the tent. This venue brings character you dont see at most places, with lodging and the beautiful private lake as a backdrop it cant be beat. The director Anne is pleasant to work with and makes the details of the event flow smoothly. Her staff is professional and the service is top notch! We highly recommend Waldenwoods to all our clients.

  • We Are Gathered...
    We Are Gathered... Wedding Officiants

    When I think about performing wedding ceremonies, Waldenwoods comes to mind. For a long time now, a handful of couples a year have selected me to perform their marriage rites in ways that evoke who they are as distinct individuals, and who they are as a couple, who will forever pledge themselves one to the other. I digress... During those years everyone, Managers and Staff alike, have become my friends. "Friend". That's a word that gets thrown about pretty casually. 'I'm their "friend" on social websites.' (Even though I've never actually met them.) I didn't want my post to be interpreted that way so I looked up the definition of the word "friend". Here's what it said: "noun 1. a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard. 2. a person who gives assistance. 3.a person who is on good terms with another." The word "friend" fits perfectly. Now, if you have read this far you must be curious, and perhaps even be searching for a venue for your event. Of course, it must be beautiful and have a sense of history about it. Good food and great service is essential. A HUGH plus, and the most difficult to find, is a group...a team...where every member puts out their personal best because they care about you. Waldenwoods is that place; are those people. Trust them. They'll become you friends, too.
