NORTH LAKE LEELENAU RETREAT! BEAUTIFUL LAKE VIEWS AND FRONTAGE!

Leland House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps 10 With Lake Frontage And Private Docks

Whaleback Retreat is a great place for a family getaway or a group of friends looking to enjoy a wine tour and all the beauty Leland has to offer! We are located on North Lake Leelanau just south of Leland Village. This spacious house overlooking the lake from Whaleback Hill has 200 feet of lakeshore across the street!

Everything you need for a perfect opportunity to be together has been given careful thought by the owners. The master bedroom in the upstairs is a getaway in itself with its comfy king-sized bed, peaceful woodsy views and roomy bath with walk-in shower. The other four bedrooms are beautifully decorated and each have a queen-sized bed. Three of the bedrooms have balconies with seating and lake views. The house has a full kitchen on both levels that allow for lots of room to cook or allows for guests to enjoy some quiet time separately. Views of the lake are enjoyed from the open living/full kitchen/dining area in both the upstairs and downstairs areas that can be closed off for privacy if needed. Lake gazing is required when savoring morning coffee on any of the balconies or decks and while grilling on the patio. Of course, it's then up to you if you head down the hillside stairs, across the street & jump right in!

Whether you are up to relaxing, wine tasting on Michigan’s largest wine trail, hiking Sleeping Bear or many of the other great trails, boating Lake Leelanau or Lake Michigan, sporting, staring at the water or blazing a mountain bike trail, Whaleback Retreat has it all!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a really nice time at your vacation rental. I loved our private apartment while still having the rest of the family close by. We had forgotten beach towels and a bottle of wine so having those supplied was a nice surprise. It was so spotlessly clean, private and enjoyable that it was difficult to leave and explore all the nearby attractions! I loved the setup of the living room and kitchen. I wish I could build a little home just like it! Thanks for being available to talk my sisters through the keypad/entrance door mix up and for allowing us to open the door between units. We are already looking forward to when we can visit North Michigan again!

Absolutely Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
10 of us (5 couples) stayed here over the weekend and had a fantastic experience. The pictures are not deceiving... it is absolutely beautiful. Also, as we rented the entire place we essentially had 2 places for the price of 1: a 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment(complete with its own kitchen, living room w/ flat screen, deck etc..) attached to the larger 3 bedroom, 2 bath main house. Really everything we could want and more. The owner was also very accommodating and quickly responded to any inquiries I had. Really a great place and great experience!

Everything We Expected It To Be!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment that I spoke to the owner of this property, I knew that this was where we needed to be for our return to Lake Leelanau. The description and the photos are spot on; the property was clean and well maintained with furnishings and linens that were of excellent quality. The owner was quick to respond to my calls, texts, or emails and it was apparent that she wanted this to be the vacation that we hoped for.
I would recommend this property, especially as the whole house. I traveled with a college friend and my sons and their spouses. My friend and I took the 2 bedrooms in the apartment which is a wonderful retreat from the main house, yet still connected. We were able to retire early while the younger generation stayed up and enjoyed their music and laughter without disturbing us at all. If you choose to do some laundry, the laundry room is an added bonus- new appliances and a great layout for folding the clothes.
The climb from the lake to the deck can be challenging so we made the necessary modifications to our plans. The public beaches on both Lake Michigan and Leelanau are very close and were most enjoyable. My boys rented a boat in Leland, but to spare me the climb, we used the Lake Leelanau public access dock as our pickup point. It's less than 5 mins away and there's plenty of parking available.
During our week, we revisited The Early Bird for breakfast, The Bluebird for great whitefish dinner, and The Cove for their delicious fish tacos and seafood chowder. The Cove required multiple return trips! Don't miss buying smoked fish and smoked fish pate at Carlson's Fishery in Fishtown. It was our nightly appetizer! When venturing out of Leland, explore the area, climb the dunes, visit the surrounding towns each with its own charm. There's plenty to do and see within short distances.
