This is a small, cozy cottage, with a huge view. Enjoy your morning coffee relaxing on the deck while watching the sunrise over the lake.
The cottage has a full kitchen, dining area, living room with a sleeper sofa, two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and one with a full/twin bunkbed), and a full bath. The cottage will sleep 7, but it would be a tight fit, a realistic maximum would be 4 or 5. This is a true tiny house, but when you are at the lake you are there to enjoy the outdoors, and we have plenty of outdoors available :-)
The kitchen is stocked with dinnerware, flatware, pots and pans, small appliances including coffeemaker, toaster, mixer, etc. Bed linens, kitchen, and bath towels are provided.
There is be a new Roku/Smart TV with DVD in the living room and a Smart TV in the bedroom with the queen bed. The cottage is stocked with a variety board games.
If the nights are cool there is heat and if it gets too warm there is a window air conditioner.
During the summer season our standard rentals start on Saturday or Sunday for 6 days or more, if you need something different please contact us and we will see what is possible.
The Hilltop Hideaway is located at the end of the lane so there is almost no traffic. The cottage is positioned at the top of a hill that overlooks the lake. The front deck is the full width of the cottage and has railings and latching gates to keep the little ones (kids or pets) contained. The deck has a patio table and chairs, as well as a propane grill (propane provided). Make use of the fire pit to enjoy evening campfires, roasting hot dogs, and consuming s'mores.
The cottage faces to the east, and is overlooking the lake toward the undeveloped portion of the lake, this adds the the natural beauty of the view of the lake.
You will have a private 30’ dock where you can tie up your boat(s). There is a very large sandy beach right in front of the cottage with a large swimming area that has a sandy bottom and a gradual slope. In addition, our association has about 900 feet of shared shoreline.
The owner's cottage is located next door. There is a paddle boat available for use, and the owner's cottage has two kayaks, a stand-up paddleboard, an additional paddle boat, a rowboat, and an Otter Island swim raft also available for your enjoyment.
Little Long Lake is a 154-acre spring-fed lake that spans the IN/MI state line, with the lake evenly split with half of the lake in Indiana and half in Michigan. There are times designated for high speed fun such as waterskiing, tubing, or wakeboarding and also no-wake times to allow for peaceful fishing or lazy cruises around the lake. The Michigan half of the lake’s high speed times are 11am-7:30pm, while the entire lake allows high speed from 1pm-4pm. There is a nice concrete public boat ramp on the MI side. Those that like fishing regularly catch largemouth bass, bluegill, and perch.
We now have Wi-fi at the Hilltop Hideaway.
The Hilltop Hideaway is located in a quiet neighborhood, so we ask for no loud parties. Please leave the cottage in the same condition that you found it.
The photos of the cottage are in its current condition. We have recently purchased this cottage and will be doing some remodeling throughout the winter and spring. We will post new photos when completed. We expect to have the kitchen fully gutted and renovated and the interior repainted in time for the beginning of the 2019 lake season. We bought the Hilltop Hideaway in January of 2019 so we don't have many photos to show the view of the lake from the cottage or of the dock, so I have included a few photos from the owner's cottage view, which is located next door.Get the full listing »
