About Shawn ricker
Shawn and Steven live in New York and hope to retire in Michigan one day...
Shawn ricker purchased this Estate in 2008
Rustic charm in a great location, perfect for a group!
Sleeping Bear Hideaway was perfect for our large group (2 families with small kids, plus a set of grandparents & great-grandparents). Convenient location right between Empire and Glen Arbor, minutes from Sleeping Bear Dunes and several beaches/lake access areas. Rustic farmhouse has a few quirks, but is well represented in photos and plenty of space between the 4 bedrooms and family/living rooms. Steve and Shawn were wonderful hosts, we appreciated their hospitality and recommendations on area activities and restaurants. We loved the whole area and look forward to visiting again in the future!
Exceptional vacation in a wonderful historic cottage!
My family vacationed for a week at this lovely cottage, and we enjoyed every minute! A wonderful location for a large group, the cottage was clean and slept 12 people very comfortably. It has wonderful amenities, and the location gave us multiple activity options each day. Shawn and Steve are very gracious hosts, and assured we had everything we needed and were open to questions in our planning process. My extended family all enjoyed the time together exploring Pure Michigan on the Leelanau peninsula. Thank-you so much!
Great place for a large family to stay. Wonderful gathering spaces.
This property was very private and cozy. Although not on the lake, it was close to town, beaches and trails. We were very pleased with the amentities of the house. Couldn’t have found a better place for 12 family members to gather for a week.
Thank you so much for the positive review!
We're just back from a 10-day vacation overseas - we'll process your deposit asap.

Great location, great accomodations
The house was exactly where we wanted to be and enabled us to do exactly what we wanted to do: hang out at the lakeshore, visit the tourist attractions and come home for a campfire at night. The kitchen was well organized and we had no trouble finding the utensils and equipment we needed for cooking big family meal. Sleeping was comfortable.
Perfect for the eleven of us!
The interior of the house was very roomy and up north cozy. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of dishes, glasses, utensils, bowls & pots & pans. Everyone had a bed to sleep in & we enjoyed the spacious dining/great room space. All could fit at the dining room table & the great room area was very comfortable. The kids & some adults enjoyed the basement game room too. Ideal location, very close to Glen Lake, Glen Arbor & Sleeping Bear Dunes!
We loved the location of the property and it's size was great for our family.
Other Activities: shopping, kayaking, boating, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, wildlife viewing, mini golf
