The Mangy Moose offers a sugar-sand bottomed lake area, shallow for 50-60 yards. Quiet and private, this is one of only a few places on Lake Mitchell or Lake Cadillac that does not have a busy road running right behind the property. The cottage is located on a private cul-de-sac with an additional lot buffering it from the property behind.
Well maintained and immaculate inside offering a floor to ceiling field stone fireplace, open living room and dining room featuring entire wall of windows overlooking beautiful Lake Mitchell! Air conditioning is not necessary as the lake breezes and ceiling fans are prevalent. Four bedrooms and four bathrooms, each tastefully decorated, featuring high quality bedding and luxurious linens.

CADILLAC AREA VISITOR INFORMATION (Check the Cadillac visitors links offered later on this page)
Lake Mitchell is 2580 acres in size and is connected to Lake Cadillac by a navigable canal, combining over 3700 acres of all-sports water fun! Many casual restaurants and eateries shore up to both lakes, offering docking for dining and/or drinks. Ice cream shops, party stores, and gas docks are also directly available by watercraft.
Like to hike or mountain bike? You will be surrounded by the Manistee National Forest boasting six-hundred thousand acres of pristine wooded wonderland! The Big Manistee, Little Manistee and Pine River (the fastest moving river in Michigan) are only minutes away. Fish the Tippy Dam, providing world class salmon, steelhead and trout opportunities. On a larger scale, the dunes of Lake Michigan located in Manistee are just a short drive away.
Winter activities abound! Cadillac is also the host site of the North American Snowmobile Festival. Snowmobile trails are accessible right from the front yard. Access these trails from Lake Mitchell, and you can sled directly onto the Lake from the front of the cottage. Downhill skiing at Caberfae is 15 minutes away, and Crystal is 35 minutes from the cottage. Cross Country ski in the surrounding woods or directly onto the lake. Excellent ice fishing can be had right in front of the cottage. Or, simply sit back and enjoy the quiet over a cup of hot chocolate and a crackling fire from your cozy abode!
You will not be disappointed! This is truly one of the nicest rental on the Lake. Please email all initial inquiries, Thanks!
