This 1400 square foot, lakefront cottage was completely renovated in April '09. It is lovingly decorated with warm colors and tastefully selected furnishings. The cottage is completely furnished, from high end art on the walls, to quality bedding and bath linens, to a fully stocked kitchen. Every detail has been taken care of just for you!
The large picture window in the living room overlooks beautiful Lake Mitchell. The living room showcases a floor to ceiling, wood-burning, brick fireplace. All new furniture in neutral fabrics featuring a sleek leather club chair and matching couch, as well as gorgeous, handwoven seagrass chairs in the sunroom. Colorful pillow accents and soft blanket throws, exemplify a tasteful and uniquely fresh decor. The living room also hosts a 42' flat screen High Definition television with surround sound, DVD player and premium cable channels. Free Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the cottage.
A separate dining room seats up to 8 people and is directly adjacent to an efficiently stocked kitchen featuring all new stainless steel appliances. Two beautifully decorated master bedrooms offer queen-sized beds with luxurious bedding. The two remaining bedrooms feature bunk beds for a true cottage feel. The sunroom in the front of the cottage displays a full wall of windows with expansive, unobstructed lake views. There is nothing but lawn between you and the shoreline! The sun room also features two full-size day bed futons, each sleeping up to two adults. Catch a Michigan sunrise via the sun room while enjoying your morning coffee. The front hall bathroom offers a gleaming subway tiled tub and shower, and the back bathroom features a standing shower. Each bath is fully stocked with quality linens, including beach towels for your convenience.
Savor your meals al fresco via the lakeside deck furnished with tasteful patio furniture and a gas grill. An eight person hot tub is located directly off the front deck. Let the kids bounce away on the water trampoline, or play in the fenced in backyard as you relax the end of another beautiful vacation day away in the hot tub, or hammock. Bring your boat, kayaks, wave runners and dock them on the 150 foot private dock right in front of the house, or better yet, save yourself the hassle and fuel cost of transporting your boats and rent OUR BOATS!
The 2 stall garage has been professionally converted into a recreation room with a futon couch, pool table, air hockey, bumper pool, shuffleboard, electronic darts, an additional TV, a foosball table, a three person sauna and a full-size refrigerator to hold your favorite thirst quenching refreshment!

I grew up in the Cadillac area and appreciate it's natural beauty even more, now having moved 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, wakeboarding, tubing, fishing, hunting, shopping and so much more!
This property was refurbished and decorated with love! We often travel and vacation utilizing vrbo.com rentals, and have experienced both what we like, and don't like in a rental property. The Boathouse is everything WE would want to experience while on vacation; from the location to the decor. Great care was taken to ensure you will create wonderful memories.
Lakefront and beautiful - The Boathouse is quality through and through! From the rec room filled with electronic games and 3 person sauna, to the water trampoline, to the 8 person hot tub, to the lakefront fire pit, to the upscale boating decor. Although it is quaint, this is not your Grandparent's cottage on the lake!
The Recreation Package is an amenity other properties do not offer. Check out the weekly rental rates on power boats, paddle boats, kayaks and bikes - all meant to help you have a wonderful and exclusive vacation experience.
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 Boathouse Cottage 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! Shopping is your hobby? 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 in Empire Michigan; voted America's Most Beautiful Location by The Today Show. Empire is just an hour from the cottage and less than 20 minutes North of Arcadia Bluffs This destination is often the highlight of our guests' day trips. Pack a lunch, take a hike and experience the stuff wonderful 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; home to many wineries and shops.
