General Information:

The following is a summary of events (as I understand them) of Breene's Candlelight Restaurant Motel, Hayner's Motel, Carriage Motor Inn, Days Inn, Dickson's Lodge, and Walloon Lake Lodge. It is a complicated tale that starts in 1940's Petoskey and ends up in the modern era in Walloon Lake. I have decided to replicate this same story and photos on all the individual entries for these locations. It is the simplest way to present this information as all them are inextricably linked. The links are as follows:
