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.
NOTE: association beaches and public areas are not for guest use due to association guidelines. The closest public beach is in the village of Northport or Lake MI beach at Grand Traverse Lighthouse State Park.
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. The 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 double/twin) on the main level with a loft bedroom (queen) and half bath on the second.
Hiking, rollerblading, and peaceful walks are right our your door.
HOT TUB is only available during the summer by reservation with $100 additional fee for servicing.
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!

Cozy and inviting.
Lovely cabin in the woods. Comfortable and well appointed. Will definitely stay again!
Great you to meet you and delighted you enjoyed the Whispering Pines again! Please make it you home away from home and visit often.
Perfect Getaway Spot
My wife and I took a long weekend to explore the area and couldn't have picked a better spot for the trip. We enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub. Also took a hike in the trails directly behind the cabin - it was great. We would definitely stay here again.
Just what I needed!
This property is a gem. It has all the amenities for a nice getaway in the beautiful town of Northport. Clean, warm, friendly, awesome hot tub, had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend. Thank you Tom for making our stay so comfortable
Happy you enjoyed the Whispering Pines Cottage. Please make it a yearly destination and make it your home away from home! How to welcome you back.
Perfect getaway to an absolutely gorgeous locale!
Our first vacation to northwestern lower Michigan, but certainly not our last! The cabin was even lovelier than described and could easily accommodate several more than just the three of us (including my husband, and yellow lab!) The kitchen was well equipped - everything we needed was supplied. The master bed was extremely comfortable and the surroundings were super quiet! The hot tub is truly an added bonus and the stars above put an exclamation point on the time spent relaxing in it! Tom was very attentive to our reservation and responded to our messages almost instantaneously! He even had a bottle of local bubbly with a handwritten greeting ready for us upon arrival 🍾�👍� We grilled steaks for my birthday on the gas grill and I couldn't have wished for a better place to celebrate! Lake Michigan is just a very short walk from the cabin and our dog loved swimming in the waves. The town of Northport has everything you need - bakery, market, marina, hiking, lighthouse - and nearby are many hiking trails that we took advantage of. If you're looking for the perfect escape - this is it! Book it!
Delighted you know you enjoyed the Whispering Pines Cottage, it's amenities and the entire Leelanau County area! Please consider a return visit when travel plans call for nature, beauty and Michigan as I would love to host you again!
Quiet, secluded, and everything we needed!
We had a great stay. The cabin is quiet and peaceful, and has everything we needed (nice bbq and oven, dishwasher, washer and dryer, and internet!). We spent hours sitting on the deck reading or looking into the woods listening to birds and watching wildlife walk by. But, it's also just a 3-minute walk to the beach and a short drive to town and excellent food and beer.
glad you enjoyed the respite of the Whispering Pines cottage - please plan on returning when you travel plans call for Northern MI.
Clean and quiet
The house was clean and quiet, just what we were looking for. The fireplace was great for the couple of cool evenings that we had. I would have given it a 5, but there is no indoor dining table, only the counter in the kitchen with stools. There is a table on the screened porch that worked for us, but would have been uncomfortable had it been colder. Over all it was a good place to stay.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at the Whispering Pines. Plan on making it a yearly destination! Tom
Numerous wineries abound in the county - be sure to sample some of them!
