Overview

Northern Michigan 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 walk-in 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. Of course, it's then up to you if you head down the hillside stairs, across the street and jump in to the lake!

Whether you are up to relaxing, wine tasting on Michigan’s largest wine trail, hiking Sleeping Bear Dunes, down hill skiing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing or snowmobiling on many of the great trails, boating Lake Leelanau or Lake Michigan, ice fishing, sporting, staring at the water or blazing a mountain bike trail in the summer, Whaleback Retreat has it all!

This retreat is a year around getaway that will always make you feel at home.

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.

Great location, nice place to stay.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Lake Leelanau. We love Leland and the location was perfect for all of the things we wanted to do. The apartment was spacious and clean with high end furnishings. We wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. The outdoor area could have used some cleaning up. There were droppings on the deck and the chairs were too dirty to sit on. We did bring kayaks and were able to enjoy paddling the beautiful lake and connecting river. No beach area but there is room to sit out on the deck. Overall we had a lovely week and would come back to this property again.

Right down the road from downtown Leland and historic Fishtown. 30 minutes from Traverse City, 15 minutes from Suttons Bay. Michigan wineries all around the area. Quiet, clean and comfortable.

Welcoming Retreat In Leland

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved our stay at Whaleback retreat! It is a very clean, welcoming and comfortable upper level 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the lake with a sweet balcony to sit upon and enjoy the lake view. Behind the house is a trail to a stunning overlook of Lake Michigan. Also, one can walk the road into Leland for breakfast, shopping, happy hour, etc.

Whaleback Retreat is located within close driving distance to wonderful local farmer's markets in season, great wineries, and the beauty of "upnorth" Michigan. If you want a relaxing, fresh air vacation this is the place. Rebecca is lovely as a landlord/host and available to address any questions or concerns. We will be back!!

Great Location on the Leelanau Peninsula

  • 5 of 5

Vacation rental was perfect for a visit to the Leelanau Peninsula. The unit was clean with a well equipped kitchen. Location was great for visiting many northern Michigan locations. Lake Leelanau is truly a wonderful place for a family location.

AMAZING view from the deck

  • 5 of 5

Great property that offers one of the best views of "up north". The condo is very spacious--the high ceilings are just wonderful. The floor plan allows for many place for folks to gather or go off to be on your own. The beds are excellent. The corner fireplace offers a great warmup to a chilly night. Being on the second floor you feel away from it all and tucked in the beautiful trees and have a birds eye view of the water.
