We have many lodging options and dates for you to choose from! Whether you are planning a romantic getaway for two, a family vacation, or an alternative to your typical hotel or motel lodging; the Whaleback Inn is for you. We are located in Michigan's most beautiful and sought after Leelanau Peninsula (north of Traverse City). The Inn is situated on a hill overlooking Lake Leelanau for spectacular year round views. The Whaleback Inn is so named because we sit at the base of the Whaleback Sand Dune. Among the five wooded acres are fourteen well appointed lakeview rooms, a free standing cottage and three cottage suites.
