Great location for traveling northwest MI. Trips to Traverse City, Charlevoix, Petosky all within easy striking distance. Laurie's place is clean and well stocked and on a quiet lake. Enjoyed the stay!

We spent a great week at the Hanley Lake Hideaway with our two boys. Perfect location for our trip. We visited Sleeping Bear Dunes, Traverse City, Torch Lake, Barnes Park, Charlevoix and Mackinac Island. Not to mention all the great little towns surrounding us. Bellaire was our favorite. We also just hung out at the house playing games and kayaking on the lake. It was a fantastic trip! Great experience with the owners as well.

Our family had a great stay! The house was exactly as advertised and was a great location for skiing and sightseeing. Laurie was awesome and provided lots of great ideas for things to do in the area for the weekend. Her responses were very timely and extremely helpful. We look forward to visiting again in the summer!

This was such a great house! We were welcomed to a nice clean house with such an excellent view! I honestly loved everything about it. We were centrally located between a lot of nice little towns, and only a drive away from Traverse City. In fact we enjoyed Traverse City, Mackinaw City, Petoskey, and Belleaire while staying on this trip. The house was very warm and inviting. It felt like home! Communication with Laurie was amazing! She always made sure everything was going well for us, and was even inviting for our little Beagle to join us as well. All of us had a great time up there, and couldn't ask for anything more. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
