                                              Wonderful Spot!

                                              Barbara P.

                                              This was our second summer at Ruth's Hideaway....totally enjoy being there. It's the perfect lake cottage..... not pretentious, close to Traverse City and a perfect spot on Lake Leelanau! The cottage could use better pots and pans, other than that it is well equipped.

                                              Great place for families with kids and a dog

                                              Anthony C.-

                                              The pictures (and view!) are accurate. The location is nice, but what makes the place extra special is that owners are next door and super friendly and relaxed. It is on a very small cul-de-sac (google maps has it as a connecting road; that is incorrect) so the kids and dog can run around without worry, and the neighbors' dogs are all very sweet. There were also other great kids (sharing their toys!) so a wonderful time was had by all.

                                              McDonald cottage on Leelanau

                                              jim g.

                                              Tina and I had a very nice time in spite of the storms and 50 mph winds the first three nights. Because of the winds I did not put my boat in the water, but Bingham launch is so close, it was not an issue. Bed was very comfortable. I got way too much sleep. Enjoyed my conversations with Charley. We have already left a deposit for our stay next year.

                                              Regards, jim and tina gracyk

                                              Beautiful, Clean and so Relaxing

                                              Michelle S.Bozeman

                                              We stayed at this sweet cottage in early July 2016 and fell in love. The location is ideal; the home is clean, and the owners are fantastic. We can't say enough about the peaceful backyard and the wonderful views. Close to TC and Leeland but with a view like that you won't want to leave. One of the best points of this property (besides the sweet backyard) is the owners who make your stay comfortable and help you feel at home. Definitely recommended.

                                              Owner's Response:

                                              Glad you enjoyed the cottage and lake. Please let us know if you would like to book a week next summer.

                                              Nice, clean cottage on Lake Leelanu

                                              Stan E.

                                              My husband and two dogs stayed one week here. Modest cottage was clean and owners ,next door ,were very nice.

                                              Location was great. A easy trip ten to fifteen minute trip to Traverse City, Leeland or Sutton's Bay by car and 1.5 mile bike ride to the TART trail.

                                              Lake easy to swim in and kayaks provided. Our dogs loved jumping from dock and swimming in lake.

                                              Definitely recommend.


                                              Michael B.

                                              incredibly peaceful and comfortable. Beautiful lake. Amazing stars at night. Definitely going back!!
