“Willowbrook Mill is so…you!” We hear that a lot as family and friends take in the wonder of a reception at the venue. Maybe it’s the way the elegant chandeliers shine in the exposed rafter ceiling. Maybe it’s the rustic stone fireplace laden with lush flowers. Maybe it’s the hard wood floors and the charming stone patio that waits beside the creek. Whatever the magical combination of elements is that takes a venue from good enough to beyond your wildest expectations, we’ve got it. We are the sweet spot between casual and elegant. Like a legend in the making, whether your wedding party is in denim shirts or tuxedoed splendor; or if your eclectic style includes your Naeem Khan gown with a pair of well-worn Ariat boots peeking out from the lace, you’ll fit right in. We’re so…you!

In the heart of Leelanau County's Wine Country....
This casually elegant venue has a registered trout stream running directly under the building and features a water wheel. This is the only building in the State of Michigan constructed over water.
The Leelanau Peninsula
We are just steps from Grand Traverse Bay in the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula wine country. With a vibrant marina hosting boating, fishing and water sports enthusiasts each summer, Northport is home to thousands of summer visitors. The magic of the peninsula is held in its landscape of rolling hills dotted with cherry orchards and vineyards, contrasted with the aqua blue waters of its many lakes and streams while surrounded by the "greatest" of the Great Lakes...Lake Michigan!
Home to art galleries, sophisticated boutiques, and cuisine from delicious pub food to gourmet offerings.
Local attractions include; The Grand Traverse Lighthouse, Wineries, Distilleries, Organic Farms, lively Farmers Market as well as Northports Music In the Park Series each Friday of the summer season, just 2 blocks from Willowbrook Mill.
Your event guests can also enjoy other gems of the area which include Historic Fishtown (Leland), Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, Golf, Hiking and Kayaking.

I highly recommend the Willowbrook Mill for your event. It’s everything you could want for a delightful day all wrapped up in a beautiful, sweet little package. Amy Hendrickson – Amy Kate DesignsSent on 07/13/2019

I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Willowbrook Mill, or the venue owners, Mimi and Samantha. For the almost two years we were engaged, Mimi was there for us every step of the way, she helped us see a vision we didn't even know was possible, and helped us execute it flawlessly. Mimi and Samantha both went above and beyond their roles, even going as far as contacting local government figures to try to sort out a situation that occurred with our ceremony site that was in no way affiliated with their business at all. Not only is The Willowbrook Mill hands down the most gorgeous and unique event venue in Northern Michigan, the owners Mimi and Samantha are the icing on the cake. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives, and I owe a great debt of gratitude to The Willowbrook Mill for everything they did to contribute to that.Sent on 08/17/2017

We got married on June 10th 2017 and had the best day of our lives! Samantha and Mimi were more than accommodating to us. This was a destination wedding for us and they were so easy to plan with and they were very detailed in their responses and quick with replies. They made the process very easy and had great suggestions! We were in love with Willowbrook Mill as soon as we toured the venue. There is no other place like it and it really shows what Northern Michigan is all about. On the day of the wedding when I arrived Samantha and Mimi were there and checked in with me right away. They offered me a bottle of water and a side room if I needed to take a break and a mirror for me to touch up my make up! They are amazing!! Our day would not have gone as smoothly without them! We are so happy with how everything turned out! We love you guys!Sent on 06/28/2017
