Photos and Description of the Leland vacation apartment rental

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.
