  • We had snow for our fall wedding but we would not change a thing! The Cromaine Lodge was very warm and inviting with the gold chivari chairs, cream linens and the real wood burning fireplaces going. As much as we had our hearts set on getting married lakeside, having it inside the Cromaine offered an intimate ceremony that we did not expect and ended up being better. The staff was easy to work with, flexible, and they made sure the whole night went smoothly. We also booked the lodging at Friendship and Sunshine. The rooms were clean and cozy and offered a convenient place for our wedding party and close friends to hang their hat for the night.

  • My biggest complaint was during dessert we had to ask atleast 5 times for the lemon pie to be brought out for my father in law and grandfather. As well as asking my husband every 2 minutes why I was late instead of just calling/texting me, I was late on purpose I had a small hair mishap because of the rain. Other then that everything went amazing even with rain. I couldn’t be happier with how our day went.

  • The day of our wedding was amazing and ran very smooth when we arrived at Waldenwoods- Cromaine lodge, for our reception. We had our ceremony at a sentimental site and arrived to Waldenwoods for dinner and dancing. The hall is gorgeous. The windows, the lighting, the fireplaces were exactly our taste. The food was extraordinary and we received so many compliments with many people going back for seconds. We requested french macarons specifically as a portion of our dessert and they were some of the best we’ve ever had. We provided the cake which came early and a little large for their fridge but they were accomodating. The lovely servers waited on us hand and foot and were always readily available for any requests. Due to no outside alcohol allowed they provided a specialty drink for my husband and I which were already waiting for us when we arrived at the site. I wish I could come back for dinners. So amazing.

  • They’re so organized and super responsive making sure you’re on top of things as much as they are up until the moment you arrive for the big day. Their day-of planner, chefs, and entire staff were incredibly helpful and made it so that we didn’t have to worry one bit about any detail before the ceremony/reception started. I can’t recommend them enough. Waldenwoods services and staff are worth every penny.

  • 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!

  • 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 had a great experience with Waldenwoods. The entire staff is friendly, accommodating, and supportive. They helped us feel so prepared going into the big day. The venue is one of the most beautiful I had seen, and our guests were raving about the beauty, the food, and the overall atmosphere. Our wedding day ended up being so perfect, and I would recommend this venue again and again. I would love to attend a wedding here as a guest someday!

  • My Wife and I could not be happier with our wedding at Waldenwoods. Throughout the entire process, the staff was very accommodating to what we wanted and there were no issues with special requests. The food was fantastic, so many people came up to me to tell me how good the food was. The pricing was extremely reasonable, I feel like we got an extremely high end experience for an affordable price. Renting out the entire lodge next to the reception was great for our wedding party and close family, it made the day more relaxed having our "home base" right next to the ceremony and reception area.

    Thank you Terrence! The two of you were such a great couple and we love the pictures! We hope to see you again around the ground using your social membership with us. Best wishes!

  • Waldenwoods was the perfect look for what my Husband and I had envisioned for our special day. Our main goal was to find a one stop shop for ceremony reception and lodging so it was a home run in that aspect. My first initial tour and meeting at Waldenwoods was ran very well and the staff member was very good at explaining details and selling their space. We booked about 1.5 years out so we had a lot of time to plan everything out. I noticed right away after booking that their service in the office declined but since we did have so much time I was pretty relaxed even though receiving mediocre service and responses as a bride was no fun. Not only were the women in the office hard to get ahold of but they were also never all on the same page so there was a lot of back and fourth and confusion when working with different girls what felt like every time. Another thing I noticed was because I booked so far out from my date the staff was never happy to answer questions and/or work with me al... Read more

  • This place is extremely disappointing. My husband and I unfortunately chose to book Waldenwoods as a venue for a delayed wedding reception for June of next year due to Covid cancelling our original wedding in Traverse City in June 2020. After a few months of ups and downs with our wedding and personal life due to Covid we decided for multiple reasons that we were not able to continue with the reception next year at Waldenwoods. When we contacted the property to explain the situation we were left with a response of pretty much “sorry, nothing we can do. good luck”. Given the situation we were willing to be flexible but were hoping the property would have been more compassionate and understanding in these times. We have sent multiple emails and made multiple calls to upper management over the past 3 weeks and have yet to receive a response from anyone. The lack of communication, professionalism and overall message from this venue is astounding. My husband and I are in businesses were... Read more
