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.

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!

I grew up in the Cadillac area and appreciate it's natural beauty even more after moving away. I've always enjoyed the year round activities Cadillac offers! No matter the season you are never at a loss for something to do - hiking, biking, trail riding, swimming, skiing, wake boarding, tubing, fishing, hunting, shopping and so much more!

Spacious and Beautiful!

  • Submitted: Oct 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
The Moose Lodge worked out really well for us. We all had our own bedroom and bath and we made good use of the deck. When we ate there, that's where we were. We did lots of side trips to places like Sleeping Bear and the wineries. The weather really cooperated too.

We also went twice to breakfast to a new place in Cadillac in the restored old train station called "After 26". It is partially staffed by people with disabilities. The after 26 refers to the age when they leave the "system" and can't get anymore training or help. They are open for breakfast and lunch. The food was good and the restaurant itself is nice, a really good restoration.

Thanks again,
Margi

Amazing Views of the lake from this inviting cottage!

Our family stayed in the Cottage while we were in town for a wedding. Such a wonderful time. The home was clean, well kept and in excellent working order. The views were amazing, watching the moon over the lake while in the hot tub or sitting around the bonfire was perfect! All of the rooms were nicely appointed, cute moose decor, and cozy make for an awesome get away. We also used the Game Room which was great entertainment! We will be coming back to this great gem on the lake.

Owner's Response: Angela,
We are so pleased to read you and your group enjoyed their stay during such a joyous event! Your review made me want to head straight to the Moose and enjoy its offerings :-) The Moon rises are one of my favorite aspects of the cottage. Whatever the time of year you visit the cottage, The Manistee National Forest is gorgeous; it is particularly beautiful in the Fall! The time of year may have not been optimal weather for swimming, however we are glad to hear the other amenities (fire pit and hot tub) offered you beautiful views while on Lake Mitchell. We hope you will visit again, soon! Laurie & John

Magnificent Moose!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 9, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
After concluding our two weeks at the Mangy Moose, there was little doubt we were going to return again for our annual trip again! As our family members visited throughout our time at the Moose, all were amazed and had an extremely great time.
John & Laurie have opened up a wonderful lodge for families to enjoy. Living out of state now, my wife & I both from Michigan, look forward each year to our "home-coming". This years trip was absolutely fantastic. We shared this with family members from; Michigan, Ohio, Tennessee, and Florida.
The most common comment was, are we going to have the same place next year. The comfort, the fun, the relaxation can not be measured. I can not recommend enough the Club House, and recreational package. On the rare occasion of foul weather, the Club House has entertainment & activities for all ages! The kayaks, paddle boat, pontoon, no need to really explain how much fun that is. Camp fires in northern Michigan cap off the fun filled days.
There is a fantastic property manager as well. For the simple questions and routine needs, he was absolutely top notch! Top to bottom, John & laurie will provide you with a vacation that sets the bar for enjoyment and relaxation. We thank you so much, and are already excited and discussing next years trip!

Cadillac offers a wide variety of recreational activities, mouthwatering cuisine, appealing attractions, unique shopping and is clearly a small town with a ‘vigorous economy, a healthy environment and a vibrant sense of community.

There are large chain grocery stores and the usual fast food restaurants, but we encourage you to try the locally owned businesses and restaurants created by those who live, here. For instance, The Clam Lake Beer Co is a newly opened brew pub offering 20+ beers, brewed on site; the sport a great menu and wine is offered, too :)

To wear off that great food and drink; we offer over 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, 34 downhill ski runs with over 485 feet of vertical drop, over 58 miles of cross country ski and snow shoe trails (15 groomed miles), 90,000+ acres of state and national forest, and three major rivers with two large lakes offering year around world record fishing. Recreation defines our lives and offers ‘naturally inviting’ reasons to visit us.

After the day in the great outdoors, Cadillac offers unique shopping boutiques, three bowling centers, a roller skating rink, a championship ice rink, two full service health & fitness facilities, a 3D movie complex, and of course mouthwatering cuisine at the many locally owned restaurants around the area. Add these attractions to a full line-up of winter festivals and you can spend a fun-filled, or relaxing vacation – either way, come connect in Cadillac, you’ll keep coming back for more.

Once you arrive at the Moose you will most likely not want to leave the property; however, should you decide to take a day trip we have recommendations!

Are you a golfer? Enjoy fine dining? Sunsets on Lake Michigan? Check out Arcadia Bluffs located in Empire, Michigan. Arcadia Bluffs is just over an hour's drive, West of the cottage. http://arcadiabluffs.com/

Even if you don't enjoy golf you will enjoy this location's ambiance of gorgeous views and scrumptious food! Drop off the golfers and head to Frankfort for the day! Rejoin them at night for the sunset and dinner :) http://goo.gl/maps/t5IEh

Don't Miss Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park! An hour from the cottage and less than 20 minutes North of Arcadia Bluffs is often the highlight of our guests' day trips. Pack a lunch, take a hike and experience the stuff lifetime memories are made of!

Manistee is 45 minutes, West and offers both a casino and Lake Michigan shores. Traverse City is less than an hour and hosts many festivals throughout the year, including the World Famous Cherry Festival in July. Also in Traverse City - the Leelanau Peninsula is home to many wineries and shops.

You will never lack for something to do when you stay at The Moose! Or, just kick-back and do nothing at all and still experience one of the best vacations of your life!
