About the property

Two Cottages rented as a set!

Enjoy the extra space of having two well kept cottages with your rental. During the summer months of June, July and August groups can rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday up to ten guests. There is a small fee for groups over ten. We rent both cottages together as a set during the prime season (total of 5 bedrooms and two baths).

During the fall we rent the smaller cottage as a single unit for romantic Color tours and great fishing (One bedroom/bath) for just two guest.

Awesome open views right on East Lake Mitchell with a beautiful sandy beach frontage and sandy bottom lake frontage with dock. You get the best of both Lake Mitchell and Lake Cadillac being just a stone's throw from the channel. Over 80 feet of expansive private frontage, unobstructed lake views and 100's of feet additional park frontage offers great swimming, sailing, fishing and water sports, right from your boat dock.

We are committed to create an environment where friends and family can gather to create great memories.

About Michigan Family Cottages

My sister and I have been in the cottage rental business for a number of years. We do it because we believe we are making a difference in people's lives by providing them a spot where they can meet with friends and family and create lasting memories.

Why Michigan Family Cottages chose Northern Michigan

We think this is the perfect location both on the lake and in Michigan. You get the best of lake Mitchell and lake Cadillac being the closest waterfront cottage near the canal connecting the two lakes.

Also you are less than an hour away from several popular northern Michigan cities! Pay half the cost and take day trips to big name spots like Sleeping Bear sand dunes, Crystal Mountain, Manistee, Ludington, Interlochen, Traverse City, and many national forests!

What makes this cottage unique

In the middle of all, you will have a very private setting and spot of your own. Let these cottages take you back in time as you roast over with the classic outdoor barbecue and relax in the hammock. Watch the amazing sunset fall as you toast marshmallows over the camp fire. Fish off the resort dock, explore the lake or hike through the nearby state park. The last thing you will want to do is rebook for your next vacation!

What a great time with family- we did not need to worry about one thing. The cottages had everything we needed and Mother Nature gave us 7 perfect days on the sandy beach and sparkly waters!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Blue Heron for the week beginning July 5, 2014. We brought our grandchildren (16, 8, 8 and 7 years old). This place is amazing! They have thought of everything you may need and had it for your use. This home is so well kept, it's hard to believe it's a vacation rental. The hosts are the nicest people you will ever meet. It was so obvious that they truly want you to have a wonderful vacation and we did just that!

Couldn't have been better!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the best property I have ever rented. The amenities are too numerous to count. The value is excellent for the rewards you will reap including sunsets that belong on postcards. Family friendly with toys and games included, not that we could get the kids off the sugar sand beach. Comfortable sleeping and ample out door seating. We had all our meals together outdoors. Highly recommend. Thank you to Michigan Family Cottages for all the special memories I made with my family.

We stayed at Sandhill Suite for a weekend and were so excited to be staying at such a quaint, clean and beautiful suite. Everything was exceptional about this stay from the location, cleanliness and furnishings. We will definitely be coming back again, and again. The owners were very nice and accommodating hosts.

Perfect lake vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were hoping for a bit of sand, some view of sunrises and sunsets, sleeping accommodations for a variety of ages, and amenities within reach. We experienced so much more. Nearly floor to ceiling windows cover the entire lake frontage of the home resulting in a spectacular view of Lake Mitchel from dawn to dusk, just breathtaking, and you can enjoy it from all angles- the kitchen, curled up in a living room chair, around the dining room table. There is so much to explore and a variety of opportunities abound. Restaurants(even nightly entertainment) and a farmer's market in walking distance. Our kids, from ages 3-10 loved playing in the lengthy sand beachfront, relaxing in the hammock, roasting marshmallows near the fire pit, and the room arrangements were perfect. The owners take great care of the cottage and property and were prompt with any inquires or needs we might have. We can't wait to come back!
