The 'HIDEOUT' is a perfect spot to enjoy our beautiful lake and all that Leelanau County has to offer.
The family knotty pine cottage is lakefront at the end of the Lane, tucked between the cedar forest and clear stream. No through traffic, no shared front yard; a place where you truly feel on vacation. Whether you enjoy sunrise and a cup of coffee, or sunset and and a glass of local wine you are sure to unwind in this beautiful location.
The cottage is comfortably furnished with an Up North flair featuring log furniture and numerous northwoods touches. The open living room-galley kitchen is perfect for family meals and games.
It has three bedrooms, two full baths, a popular outdoor shower, plus a large family room giving you lots of space to spread out. The 1st bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have double beds with a twin over (bunk style) beds. The den has a futon couch/bed, DVD player, bar and game table. The family room makes a nice mini-suite, or a great place for the kids to hang-out.
From the front deck we've seen turtles, otter, deer, grouse, and eagles. The small crescent beach and shallow water are perfect for play. The dock has room for your boat or make it your private fishing pier. Our area of the lake is popular with the fisherman who know the good spots.. Two kayaks and a canoe are included for a quiet morning paddle. The old-style pine picnic table and charcoal grill make outdoor meals a pleasure. Retire to the oversize hammock to read a book or take a nap. When its time to clean up head for the outdoor shower with dressing area. The perfect end to an upnorth day is around the campfire circle where stories are told and marshmallow S'mores are the traditional treat.
The 'Hideout' is located on the west side of South Lake Leelanau, just 4 miles south of the village of Lake Leelanau (Dick's Pour House) and one mile north of a boat launch. You will be 15 minutes from the excellent restaurants and shops of Leland, Glen Arbor and Suttons Bay. The Hideout is great for exploring Leelanau Wine Country and also a beautiful area for biking. It is approximately 25 miles from Sleeping Bear Dunes, and 10 minutes from the stunning Good Harbor Beach. We will have tourism information at the cottage on arrival. If you have specific planning needs please contact my mom at her web-site link found below.

Five generations of our family have been vacationing in Leelanau County. As children moved away for careers it has always provided the place to reconnect and have fun together.
Since we are from the Chicago area we really appreciate the slower pace and peace and quiet. Walking out on the dock, coffee in hand, to watch the sun come up is a superb way to start the day. In the city we forget how brilliant the stars of the night sky can be and the excitement of seeing a meteor shower or if lucky, the Northern Lights. The pace of life totally changes for our whole family. We have time to enjoy the simple things.
