Covid-19 Policies

As we all navigate through this extremely challenging time of a global health pandemic, we want to ensure our guests of steps we are taking to ensure the safety for those that still travel regionally to our hotel in the 2020 season and beyond. We are hoping with warmer weather comes a lapse in the virus and a pent up demand for folks that wish for fresh air and to get out of the house! 

Regarding procedures and policies:

Even though we have always prided ourselves on cleanliness, will be implementing an even more rigorous cleaning regimen:

We will increase the frequency of cleaning and sanitation in all guest areas. 

We will stay in constant contact with all of our employees to ensure if they are feeling ill that they stay home. 


Our cancellation and refund policies cited on our Booking Policies Page remain the same.

We will also be offering gift certificates in leu of cancellations if any guests are in a position to accept this method and delay (or you may simply reschedule your trip for later in the season). 

As always, thank you for your support of the Whaleback Inn and our amazing corner of Leelanau County. We hope to see you soon!
