Greetings to all of our friends, family, and customers! We are preparing to launch our Take-Out program for the spring season. In these tumultuous times, we all need something familiar, something we can wrap our arms around, and we decided to start out with Half-Price Pizza on Friday, April 17th, serving between 5:00 and 9:00. While we can't promise you the usual raucous room full of friends and camaraderie, we can promise you a fine Pizza at a bargain price. We are also offering a bottle of delicious Villa des Anges Cabernet Sauvignon for $15, as it drinks wonderfully with Pizza.
We would prefer that you pre-order most anytime this week @ 256-9081. We are here between 9 - 4 pm. Please don't leave an order on our voice-mail. We will be serving only 14" (large) pizzas. Friday only this week, until we can ramp up our Take-Out menu and expand our hours. We look forward to hearing from you!

Fishtown Sunset by Gary Ennis

The folks Pure Michigan on Twitter thought that this photo of a summer sunset in Leland's Fishtown by Gary Ennis was a perfect fit for their #SunsetSunday hashtag! I can't help but agree!!

If you've got a soft spot in your heart for this historical treasure, I urge you to check out Fishtown Leland and the Fishtown Preservation Association's Campaign for Fishtown to raise the funds to resolve critical infrastructure and drainage issues & rehabilitate three shanties: The Village Cheese Shanty, Carlson's Fishery and the Morris Shanty as well as to replace all docks, address accessibility, and other site issues.

The high water has exacerbated an already desperate situation - click through to see how you can help: https://www.fishtownmi.org/campaign/

There is tremendous uncertainty right now, in all our lives. It's exhausting, frustrating, anxiety-inducing. The news is constant and overwhelming, rarely good, and still somehow so divisive.
We wouldn't want to be going through this next to anyone else, and we hope you feel the same. Here's hoping everyone stays the eff home (those of you who are fortunate enough to be able to) so we can all resume normal life sooner than later. 💙

Let's start by saying we hope you're well. We hope you're lovin' on those close to you and maintaining that suggested distance from everyone else. We hope there are more bright spots in every day than there are dark ones, and we are heartened by our local community - the help to businesses and individuals that has been offered, given, and accepted. We see you doing good and we love it.

Our phone isn't blowing up the way we wondered if it might and for that we are grateful. Your reservations with us should be low priority in that you have them to look forward to and don't need to be worrying about them right now. Our season was scheduled to start mid-April and we are gently amending that: we will open when it is safe to open. Mid-April is a month away (feels like tomorrow and a lifetime away) and hopefully much will change between now and then.

For now, focus on continuing to support all the amazing local businesses who need us to keep paying their bills, focus on your loved ones, and focus on staying safe and healthy. We'll reach out again when we know more. 💙

We’re healthy, we’re hopin’ you’re healthy, AND Lake Michigan is lookin’ as good as ever - here’s to easy daily gratitud...

Stayed at the best dam lodge yet?

Welcome to Falling Waters Lodge in Leland, Michigan; we are the best dam lodge (in our not-so-humble opinion). The new lodge owners are Cooper and Emily Heston and we adore this place.

We've got an incomparable setting with views of the Leland River, the waterfall, Lake Michigan, boat docks, and Leland's 200-year old Fishtown (most of our rooms have water views!). Falling Waters Lodge is ideally situated for beauty and convenience - cross the charming footbridge over the falls into historic Fishtown and downtown Leland, take the sand path to Leland beach with miles of beautiful Lake Michigan shore, explore the widely-acclaimed Leelanau Peninsula or Sleeping Bear Dunes (declared by National Geographic the most beautiful place in America). You’ll also find many great local wineries, restaurants, and historic sites.

Whatever piques your interest, Leelanau County has something for you! Relax, feel the atmosphere, and enjoy a stay with us at Falling Waters Lodge.
