Overview

Northport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

MLK weekend January 16-19. Due to a cancellation, this 3 day holiday weekend just became available and for a special rate too! all 3 nights for $300 for one couple and only an additional one time fee of $100 for an additional couple! Travel north and enjoy the fresh fallen snow in a charming cottage nestled in the woods with a wood burning stone fireplace and outdoor hot tub.

NOTE: This cottage is located on Northport MI, north of Traverse City and not near Houghton Lake/Roscommon area as the map icon indicates!

Those looking for a quiet, secluded place with natural beauty as a main attraction need to look no further! The splendor of fall foliage, the breathtaking beauty of ever-white snow amid acres of cross-country skiing, the awakening forest in the spring, and beach walks with the lap of Grand Traverse Bay and Lake Michigan in the summer, are among the many special treats that have guests returning year after year.

Situated six miles north of Northport and in a private, wooded setting, WHISPERING PINES is your respite from urban culture with seclusion in mind. Let Whispering Pines be your oasis from home affording you all of the amenities of a well-equipped, vacation home. This twelve-year-old, cedar-sided cottage boasts of vaulted ceilings, wood floors, screened porch, wood-burning (wood provided) stone fireplace, outdoor hot tub, and many other features too numerous to mention and rarely found. There are two bedrooms (a queen and set of twins) on the main level with a loft bedroom (queen) and half bath on the second.

The association beach is only 700 feet away and hiking, rollerblading, and peaceful walks are right our your door.

Get away from it all, convene with nature on an individual basis and experience the 'up north' lifestyle amid beauty and comfort. Let Whispering Pines sweep you away!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect mini getaway! The hot tub was clean, hot and ready for us. There was plenty of firewood stocked so we never had to go out to buy some! The house was clean and inviting. The only things I would comment on are that the shower does not go on all the way and that there are no baking dishes. But for us, those were minor occurrences compared to the trip in full.

We visited the lighthouse and the beach covered in ice! It is definitely worth the visit out there! What a site!!! We even saw a couple ice caves. And there were nature made skating rinks that looked like a sheet of glass.

We would definitely recommend staying here.

Tom is such a delight to work with! There was a huge winter storm the day we were leaving and Tom allowed us to arrive earlier than the check in time so that we could leave earlier and avoid the storm. Top notch!

Great winter weekend retreat!

  • of 5

This is a great little cottage in the woods. It is very clean, fully furnished, and is surrounded by woods so you have plenty of privacy. The place also has a fire place and hot tub which made it an awesome winter retreat. I would definitely stay there again.

Great Getaway Up North

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are new to the state and have been exploring more and more every chance we get. We decided for the holidays we would gift a trip up north to each other.

We could not have asked for a better house or location for getting away and unplugging. The house has a great feel to it. very comfortable and well equipped. Fire place was ready for us, the hot tub was welcoming, the bbq was easy, and the TV/extended cable/wifi helped fill the hours in-between puzzles, food, drinks, hiking, biking, exploring.

There is a small trail system right behind the house. We rented Fat Bikes for the first time and peddled the snow covered trails. Then we took off on the bikes with lunch in a backpack and the dog towards the lighthouse. We billy-goated out through the forest snow and creeks to the tip of the peninsula. then took the beach back towards the house.

Walking the neighborhood was also great and i can imagine the summers here are fantastic.

We visited Cathead Bay as well. The sun ended up popping out so we walked the trails (very short drive from the house) out to the dunes and beach. Gorgeous! The snowy dunes were surreal. We hunted for petoskey stones (even found a few) while the dog took what must have been a very chilly swim (dogs are not allowed on the beach most of the year).

We will hopefully return to Whispering Pines again! It was as advertised and the owner was easy to work with. Thank you for sharing your house with us and being open to pets!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the complimentary review! I am happy I was able to contribute even if just a little to your enjoyment of Northern Michigan and Whispering Pines. Please do not be a stranger and return often. We turn green in the spring after the snow thaws - come visit then too!

FANTASTIC Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I cannot rave enough about our weekend at Whispering Pines! My boyfriend and I spent our first vacation together here for a long weekend and it was everything we had imagined. We both have a pretty bad habit of getting over-excited and setting expectations too high for upcoming experiences, which of course usually ends up leaving us disappointed. However with this getaway, we were only disappointed that we had to leave! When we arrived, the hot tub was fired up ready to go for us along with a bottle of local wine provided by Tom! The lofted bedroom was absolutely beautiful in the morning when we woke up to the sunrise, and 2 nights in a row we accidentally dozed off sitting in front of the cozy fireplace. It was THE most relaxing weekend we have ever had and I fully attribute that to where we were staying. The location was great- set back in the woods enough to feel secluded and private, but in a nice neighborhood that felt very safe and friendly. It is about a 10 minute drive south into downtown Northport, 25 minutes into Suttons Bay, and 45 minutes into Traverse City, where we did a wine tour one day that was fantastic. The coolest thing we did all weekend was visit the ice caves (or i guess walls, not quite caves?) at Leelanau State Park, which is less than 2 miles north of the house. Literally breathtaking! A must while you are visiting if they are still there!

Thank you so much, Tom, for giving us a wonderful, relaxing weekend that we both were in desperate need of with our hectic work schedules. We are very excited to return again in the summer, spring, or fall to experience a whole new vacation!

Owner's Response: Delighted to hear the Whispering Pines over delivered and exceeded expectations - certainly something I strive to accomplish with every guest. Glad to hear you took my suggestions to enjoy the area to it's fullest...Leelanau County is magical. Unfortunately the ice caves will not be around for the summer guests to enjoy, I hope! Looking for to your return when you can experience a familiar setting in a different season!

Secluded and quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a place to get away from town and enjoy some peace and quiet - this place delivered! Secluded at the very tip of the Leelanau peninsula, this cabin had everything we were looking for: XC skiing/hiking trails right out the back door and a state park just down the road, a wonderful hot tub to soak in after being in the cold all day and close to wine country! We also weren't far from the Sleeping Bear Dunes and were able to see the amazing ice caves from this winter. We decided to sleep in the loft bedroom because it was so unique, waking up to the views was incredible! While the cabin does have three bedrooms, I would't recommend more than four people come as the common space (living room) won't accommodate more than that. The kitchen is fully stocked, so breakfast and lunch were easy and we ate out for dinner each night. The Soggy Dollar is good in Northport and I would highly recommend the prime rib at North Country in Suttons Bay. All in all we had a great time and Tom was a pleasure to work with...we will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Delighted to learn you loved the Whispering Pines, area and winter weather! Thanks for your tips and why not plan to make the Whispering Pines a yearly destination? Please come back! Tom
