The Hotdog Hideaway is located at The Long Dog Retreat Cabin Rentals on Huyck Lake in Marcellus, Michigan.
A unique chalet-style home with many windows and great ventilation. The Hotdog Hideaway has a spacious tiered deck along side of a charming stairway that leads directly down to the Long Dog Retreat's private beach. Great place to just get away from the craziness of city life! It is important to note that we have Antenna TV so it is dependent on the weather. There are several games provided and we encourage you to use your time here to read a good book, play some board games or cards, watch some fun old movies or catch up on your sleep! (or other bedroom activities :) You can usually get decent internet by setting up a hotspot on your phone!

RENT A WIENER PROGRAM!!!!
We are the ONLY KNOW RENTAL in the WORLD where you can RENT a WIENER during your stay!!!
Ok..so your not really renting a wiener...you are short term (overnight) fostering dogs for The Long Dog Retreat Dachshund Rescue.
Would you like to snuggle with a cuddly wiener dog? Would you like to help a dachshund in need of love and socialization gain confidence and have a higher chance at being adopted? Have you thought about adopting a dog but were not sure how your current pet/kids would do with a pet?
With our RENT a WIENER program, you can check out a dachshund from our rescue (located just across the street) and keep him/her for the duration of your stay or for just a few hours. Our available doxies for this program are NOT aggressive. Some may have health issues or special needs but nothing serious. They may have a potty accident...but we are PET FRIENDLY and understand this may happen. These dogs need to feel special, loved and learn socialization skills so you will be helping our rescue and YOU get the benefit of hanging out with the coolest breed of dog ever!
The charge of the RENT a WIENER PROGRAM is $5.00 per day but if you give the doggy a bath, brush his/her hair or take him/her for a walk then the FEE is WAIVED! That's right! You can RENT A WIENER for FREE!!!
To reserve a wiener...just leave us a note with your reservation! For more information about our rescue, check out our website. You will be required to fill out a Short Term Foster Contract and if you bring pets with you they will need to be up to date on shots and non-aggressive. If you participate in this program, 10% of your rental fees will be donated to The Long Dog Retreat Dachshund Rescue! Rent a cabin and Save a Wiener!
