WALLOON LAKE, MI — Childhood summers spent fishing and swimming in a pristine Northern Michigan lake would later imbue Ernest Hemingway’s “The Last Good Country.”
The newly opened Hotel Walloon is borrowing that reference for the name of an upcoming weekend devoted to celebrating the literary giant’s Michigan connection: “Walloon Lake: The Last Good Country, an Ernest Hemingway Occasion.”
