Leland house description

Gorgeous views of North Lake Leelanau greet you from every room in this bright and inviting vacation home. 'North Manitou' feels like home with a cozy living room and lake view from every window. Each bedroom has it's own sliding door out to a private balcony or deck area with seating.

Enjoy the sunrise and your morning coffee from the house deck or stroll down the hillside steps and across the street to 200 feet on the lake. Dock your boat - or rent one! - for 18 miles of Lake Leelanau water sport fun! 'North Manitou' has a large lawn for family fun and games. The fire pit area is great for s'mores & sunset watching. Meals are easy in the full kitchen, on the grill - or in the village!

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.

Do you have a larger group? Contact us for details on also renting the attached 1000 square foot one king bedroom/full kitchen & living/one bath apartment that is available for rental with the house or separately to accommodate two more people. The apartment - the 'South Manitou' - Listing #508885 can be opened up to the house or locked off for privacy. It has a private entrance, parking, patio, balcony & dock.
