The knotty pine family cottage is on the water 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.

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 shallow lake entry area is 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 where stories are told and marshmallow S'mores are the traditional treat.

Why Diana and Lou Aug chose Lake Leelanau
Five generations of our family have been vacationing in Leelanau County. As children moved away for careers it has always provided the place to 'disconnect' and reconnect and have fun together.
What makes this Cottage unique
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 each other and the simple things.

Great place to bring your family. Everything we needed was available.
Fantastic. The hosts were very friendly and available if needed. The property is truly a great hideout as there is a lot of privacy in the backyard on the lake. The kayaks were perfect!!
We just completed our second year at the Hideout on Lake Leelanau and again we enjoyed our stay very much. The location can't be beat, it is close to Leland, Glen Arbor, and Traverse City and every spot in between. Our sons went fly fishing in the various near by lakes, streams, and rivers. We brought our boat, and it too had great accommodations on the dock. The cottage is very clean and comfortable with comfortable beds, eating area, and an outdoor shower! We plan on going back again! Thanks Diana-Sincerely, Happy Family From Cincinnati!!
Great summer getaway on the lake
Loved being right on the water and the cottage was perfect for the five of us. Fishing, wading and relaxing right off the dock and close to quite a few small towns to go and see. Great time for all ages - would highly recommend!
