About Scott Smith

We are second generation Lake Margrethe property owners. I (the husband/maintenance man) spent his summers growing up on the water and in the woods around Lake Margrethe, and eventually courted his wife here too. The original cabin on the property was the oldest cabin on the lake, which we tore down, and built the cabin you see, or will be staying in. We take great pride in our place, and most guests are shocked when they arrive, and repeatedly tell us that they have never rented a place so nice and clean.

Scott Smith purchased this cottage in 1972

Why Scott Smith chose Northern Michigan

This place is a part of us, it is who we are. This is a place where we feel connected to our past, and close to the people who are no longer with us. Like it's name, this is a place to truly 'Quiet The Mind', to recharge your batteries, and reacquaint yourself with family and friends.

Nice, clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay in this cabin. The cabin was very clean and very well stocked. We enjoyed a great week on the lake. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with, as well.

Lake Margrethe is a hidden gem located in the heart of northern Michigan. At nearly 2000 acres, and classified as an all sports lake, it is sure to support any type of water sport/activity you might be interested in. Hard sandy bottom, with no muck anywhere, makes swimming and wading a pleasure. Crystal clear water supports a fantastic fishery, with walleye, smallmouth/largemouth bass, pike, musky, and an abundant pan fish population all available for the avid fisherman. We are minutes away from the holy waters of the Ausable River, as well as the Manistee, surrounded by numerous golf courses, and miles and miles of marked ATV trails in every direction. This truly is an outdoor lovers paradise, be as active as you wish, or as lazy as you want, it's all right here for you in our beautiful lakefront cabin.

Notes:
Our cabin is situated right on a point, 30 feet from the lake shore. The setting is very private, with woods on one side and great neighbors on the other side, and over 100 feet from the dead end road, which makes for a very quiet and peaceful setting. Boat rental is available 5 minutes away, as well as several golf courses, canoe liveries, ATV trails, mini golf, and independent beer breweries in town. This is a place geared towards great family times, we don't encourage loud unruly behavior, and prefer (our neighbors do too) that you look elsewhere if that's what you are looking for.
