NORTH LAKE LEELENAU RETREAT! BEAUTIFUL LAKE VIEWS AND FRONTAGE!

Leland Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom 1 bath Sleeps 4

Whaleback Retreat is a romantic getaway for 2 couples or maybe just for you! -on North Lake Leelanau just south of Leland village. This spacious apartment 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 who enjoy 'couples vacations' themselves! (No sharing of outdoor space with other guests!!!)

The master bedroom is a getaway in itself with it's comfy king-sized bed, peaceful woodsy views and roomy walk0in shower. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed. Beautiful views of the lake are enjoyed from the open living/full kitchen area. And, we apologize, but lake gazing is required when savoring morning coffee on the balcony or grilling on the patio. Od course, it's then up tp you id you head down the hillside stairs, across the street and jump right in!

Whether you are up for relaxing or sporting, staring at the water, or blazing a trail, this place has it all!

Have friends or family you would like to be with, but want your private time too? Please contact us for details about Whaleback Retreat main house, listing VRBO #508805. It is a 3 bedroom 2 bath house that can be opened up to the apartment, or keep it locked for privacy. You can be as sociable & accessible as you care to! Both rentals have separate parking, entrances, private outdoor spaces, fire pits & docks.

Fantastic Vacation Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two adult chldren recently stayed here and had such a great vacation. It was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated, and we loved the private dock! We made a few early morning and late night visits to the dock just to enjoy it at different times of the day. The beds were very comfortable and having the laundry room was a real bonus. The extra beach towels provided by the owners was a thoughtful touch. We made good use of the grill and firepit area and actually cooked quite a few meals in the kitchen. Living room was comfortable and big enough for everyone to enjoy. There is only one bathroom but this really did not present a problem for us. This unit is reached by a fairly long set of steps so might be a challenge for anyone with mobility issues. We acually enjoyed being up on this level as it afforded us a view of the lake. A large parking area is also provided which was nice as my daughter arrived later in the week and we knew there would be plenty of room for her car. There is another rental unit in the other part of the house, but we had plenty of privacy and really never heard anyone. Since the entryways and parking areas are separate privacy is not an issue at all. This was our first visit to the area and we came primarily for Sleeping Bear Dunes, but really enjoyed Leland. It is a quiet, beautiful, little town with the charming, historic Fishtown and many great little shops along the main street. Leland was convenient as we even took the ferry to South Manitou Island one day. My husband and I also drove up the scenic Leelanau Peninsula and the Old Mission Penisula, visiting the lighthouses and wineries. Sutton's Bay is close by and is another cute little town to visit. We rented bikes in Glenn Arbor and had a great time on the bike trail riding down to the Dune Climb. Morning coffee on the deck looking at Lake Leelanau was perfect and a short distance away is a great spot for watching the sunsets on Lake Michigan-absolutely gorgeous! We would definitely return and feel it was a really nice vacation rental. My children were impressed and appreciated the space and amenities! It is truly a beautiful area. Kudos to the owners for such an inviting and comfortable place!

Wonderful and Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5
I can't wait to come back and stay here. Not only was it in a great location- just outside of town, literally next to a beautiful nature walk and just across the street from the water - but it was a spacious apartment with very comfortable amenities. The apartment was spotless, had pots, pans, and dishes for a nice meal in, and laundry.

i would certainly recommend this apartment
