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. Every detail has been taken care of just for you! All you have to remember is your bathing suit, personal amenities, and food!
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 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 sunroom also features two full-size day bed futons, each sleeping up to two adults. Catch a Michigan sunrise via the sunroom 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 50 foot private dock right in front of the house, or better yet, save yourself the hassle and rent OUR BOATS!
The 2 stall garage has been professionally converted into a recreation room with futon couches, pool table, air hockey, bumper pool, shuffleboard, electronic darts, basketball game, additional TV, a foosball table and a full-size refrigerator to hold your favorite thirst quenching refreshment! Reserve this playland paradise for an additional fee, and your 'kids' will have every waking moment of their vacation filled with both indoor and outdoor activity and excitement!

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.
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! 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!
