A Weddings and Special Events Facility

The Willowbrook Mill invites you to plan your "Special Event" in a very special place!

Our "Mill" will draw you into an American Cotswold atmosphere, combining the classic American cottage with the old world English charm. Set over a creek with a turning wheel, three stone fireplaces, plank flooring and a summer porch all adds up to "an event to be remembered"!

Our Location

The Willowbrook Mill, located in the heart of Leelanau County's Wine Country is Northern Michigan's newest event center offering a "storybook setting" that is untouched by time.

Located in the quaint Village of Northport, Michigan, this historic facility (circa 1850) was recently renovated (2009) with the feel of a historic European grist mill. This unique property has a registered trout stream (Northport Creek) running directly under the building and it features a turning water wheel.

Our Mill is the perfect location for a memorable Destination Wedding.

Northern Michigan's "little finger", i.e. Leelanau County is the heart of Michigan's pure beauty. It's "magic" 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!

Charming shops and eateries abound in the many shoreline villages as chain restaurants and hotels are non existent, making the "untouched by time feeling" a reality! White birch, white pine and two lane sandy tracks add to the intrigue of this mystic land.

The Willowbrook Mill is walking distance to the marina, beach, shops and art galleries. Other local attractions include, The Grand Traverse Lighthouse, Leelanau Sands Casino and Historic Fishtown (Leland) and are all ~ 10 miles from Northport. Your wedding guests can also enjoy other gems of the area which include The Sleeping Bear Dunes. Traverse City as well as the magnificent Mackinac Island!
