I have lived in the area for 20 years and have always dreamed of owning a place on the water. I am lucky enough to have found the perfect spot and to own a piece of paradise. I love sharing this property with others and see the joy they get from being there. I'm an engineer by day and love going out to the cottage as often as possible. Like you, I need a vacation and I am lucky enough to get to retreat to a perfect location.

Gary Hughey purchased this cottage in 2012

This is very close to Traverse City where I both work and live. Leelanau County is one of the most beautiful places in the country and on top of that this cabin nearly boarders Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. I have many excellent memories as a young person visiting the Dunes for the challenging dune climb with my friends. They always wanted to see how fast they could climb to the top! Try it, it will be day to remember!

When this was built, they put it very close to the water. 12 feet past the end of the deck is the water's edge, making the cabin feel like an extension of the lake. There is a fire pit in between the cabin and the water for evenings sitting around a fire by the water. This cabin creates unique opportunity to enjoy the closeness of the water and all the amenities necessary to be comfortable.

Fun in the snow

My family of five (with 3 young kids) spent three nights here over Thanksgiving break. My son slept on the pull-out sofa bed, so there was plenty of room of all of us. The cabin is well-maintained and supplied and is very clean; and, even though the weather was cold (and very windy at times) outside, we stayed warm and cozy inside. There ended up being a good amount of snow, so we spent many hours sledding down the sand dunes at Sleeping Bear Dunes. We highly recommend this cabin-- nice accommodations at a fun location!

Little Traverse Lake Lovers

We had a "blitz" vacation for a birthday and to escape the City to Little Traverse Lake only a few weeks after having visited the lake before. The cottage’s owner was very helpful to make this brief vacation happening on short notice. We found the cottage in clean and proper conditions, the fact that all bedding and towels were brand new gave it a very pleasant touch as well. The location being just 20 feet distance of the lake's shoreline is pretty unbeatable and allows for beautiful sun sets and rises. The cottage was equipped with all necessary utensils which helped feeling one at home immediately. There were even some groceries in the pantry. The entire cottage felt comfortable and cozy and let us not forget the excitement of the outdoor fire pit. We highly recommend this place and will visit it and Little Travers Lake for sure again.

1st off, the owner was great. He confirmed our reservation request and answered questions quickly, which helped us pull the last-minute trip together. On our 1st night, we misplaced the cottage key. We got back around 8pm (fri night), and we couldn't get in ... it was dark, cold out, the kids were tired. I sent a text to the owner to ask if someone in the area might have a back-up, and he hooked us up in like 30 min. He was really cool about the whole thing too. The cottage reminds me of my grandparents' old place (knotty pine walls, vintage cabinets). It is clean and well equipped (sheets, towels, cleaning products, stocked kitchen, cable, wifi, tub full of games). It's small, but we (family of 4) thought it was comfortable, and we were indoors a fair amount of time (Oct/end -chilly, rainy). I was wondering if the place would be drafty /cold, but the heaters keptbthe place toasty warm (high 30's / low 40's at night). We especially appreciated the 2 comfy queen beds (a lot of two bedroom rentals have 2 twins or bunks in one room). The view of the lake from the living room is awesome. The location is great (in between Glen Arbor & Leland). Real value for the $. We will be back.

Truly a "Lake Front" Cottage Aug 31-Sept 15

Hughey's Hideaway cottage on Little Traverse Lake exemplifies the cottage experience that a lot of us grew up with as kids. It is truly fifteen feet from a clean, clear lake with sandy bottom that is not only great for swimming but also caught Bass, Northerns, and some pan fish in the boat that came with rental.

The first five minutes into any rental usually tells you how your stay will be and this was no exception. The interior was immaculate, the bathroom clean and fresh, furniture in the living area was updated and new, kitchen clean and fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. Both bedrooms were move in ready. We were already "happy campers" and we had yet to unpack!! Deck, chairs, picnic table, gas grill, boat, dock......it's all there.

The owner was available and helpful at time of booking and checked on us when there to see that everything was saifisfactory. I would recommend this to all of my friends.
