Northport cottage description

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!
