Northport is located in one of the most beautiful areas in the country, amid vineyards and cherry and apple orchards, right on Grand Traverse Bay and only two miles east of Lake Michigan. Along with a newly refurbished marina and swimming beach, a new 9-hole golf course, a micro-brewery, a wine-tasting room and several new restaurants, the town also boasts a strong artistic presence and a healthy farm-to-table culture.

Nearby attractions include Sleeping Bear Dunes, named by ABC’s Good Morning America as “The Most Beautiful Place in America.”

27 miles south is Traverse City, home of Michael Moore’s annual Film Festival, and ranked among the best “foodie” cities in the country. Ten miles south is the Leelanau Sands Casino, owned by the native American Anishabeck. Twelve miles away is Leland, and historic Fishtown. Just two miles north is the tip of the Leelanau Peninsula, and Leelanau State Park, complete with campground, hiking trails, and a lighthouse.

Northport is probably the best kept secret on the peninsula. While other towns have become tourist meccas, Northport retains its small-town character. The year-round population of 600 continues pretty much as they have since the town was first founded by French explorers. And while the summertime brings a surge in the populace, there’s still plenty of space for pursuing all the outdoor activities northern Michigan is known for.

Small town hospitality with big time comfort that makes you feel at home. The room was superbly clean and updated to make you want to put your feet up and relax from the moment you walk inside. The hotel manager was friendly and accommodating and made the check-in process hassle-free. She even had fresh coffee ready the next morning! You are smackdab in the middle of Northport so everything you need is within walking distance and the view from the room is icing on the cake. The town may be small, but The Northport Inn delivers in a big way and pampers their guests well.

The price is very reasonable, the rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly and great to work with. We highly recommend the NP Inn.

Property manager went out of his way to provide a late check-in for us. Small and cozy (7 rooms maybe). Appears to be recently remodeled. Great place to stay for a winter getaway!

A lovely small Inn located in downtown Northport. The rooms are very nicely appointed and quiet. Jeannette personally made sure everything was in order for our short stay. This is not a full service hotel but everything you need is in easy walking distance. A gem!

This town is absolutely stunning! I can't wait to visit again, hopefully soon!!    - L. Griffin

I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderfully appointed inn. It is quite charming and resembles a small European boutique hotel. The owners are delightful. The restaurant is quite good as was the music on Friday night. The local fall color was breathtaking and you must partake of the many vineyards. A great escape.  - F. Parker

We spent a fabulous Fall wknd away at the NorthPort Inn. The proprietors are lovely people proud to show you the amazing property they have renovated. The rooms are beautifully appointed...awesome colours and bay views. We enjoyed a breakfast with many choices including gourmet cheeses and jams, homemade granola, homemade scones! The town is lively with great restaurants and entertainment. If you are looking for a little time away consider visiting and a stay at this awesome Inn.  - Pam and Jay M

Clean and extremely spacious! A 5-minute walk to public beach and marina. Easy access to restaurants across the street. The rooms are bright and airy with wonderfully high ceilings!  - K. Samborn

I wanted to let you know how impressed we were with our stay at your place last night. The room was great....everything first class.   - Dana M
