Discover the ultimate Northern Michigan escape at our traditional "Up North" lakefront cottage with 110 ft of private direct frontage on all-sport Lake Mitchell in Cadillac, MI. The cottage is 2,350 sq ft, with three bedrooms, a den with sleeper sofa, three full bathrooms, laundry room, well equipt kitchen, dining area, and living room with views of the lake from almost every room in the house. Deck overlooking the lake with table and chairs, benches, and both gas and charcoal grills. Whether you're planning a family getaway, a romantic rendezvous, a memorable girls' weekend, or a fishing or snowmobiling trip Up North our lake house will comfortably sleep up to 10 people. This is an "old school" Northern Michigan lake house with many modern updates for a comfortable stay.
With seven lakeside sliding glass doors, enjoy beautiful sunrises and immerse yourself in breathtaking views of the lake and picturesque surroundings. Cozy up by the original rock fireplace (converted to natural gas), adding a touch of rustic charm to your stay. Step outside onto the expansive deck, ideal for al fresco dining, enjoying a glass of wine or a beer, or simply unwinding under the sun. Enjoy swimming from our dock where the lake bottom is clean and sandy. Bring your boat for skiing, tubing, or fishing and keep it tied up to the dock. Or, use one of our kayaks to cruise the shoreline.
For those leisurely evenings, unwind with your favorite shows and movies on our Roku smart TV, or enjoy an evening under the stars on the deck or around the firepit (Bring your own firewood), or grill your own food on either the gas or charcoal grill.

Convenient amenities include a two-car garage with additional driveway space allowing parking for a total of 4 cars. Please note, street parking or parking in the yard or neighboring yards is not permitted. There is also a neighborhood "quiet ordinance" between 11:00pm and 6:00am.

Reviews

Lovely abode for lodging; interior boasts beauty. Our party, consisting of five individuals, chose this accommodation for an ice fishing expedition. Throughout our stay, all members enjoyed utmost comfort. Strongly endorse. Mike
Ruth's Home offers exceptional comfort, and Ruth herself excels as a host! The spaciousness of the house, abundant towels, kitchen essentials, and the awe-inspiring view of Lake Mitchell make for an unforgettable experience. I'll undoubtedly return! Lacey
What a delightful escape! The entire place surpassed the beauty depicted in the pictures. Every corner exuded immaculateness and Christmas charm, down to the minutest detail in each room. We savored moments by the fire in the elegant yet snug living room, relishing the lake's serene melody from the balconies. (The assortment of board games and art supplies delighted my children!). The enchanting library in one of the children's rooms, stocked with captivating books for all ages, stole our hearts. All essential cooking amenities were at our disposal, and the beds offered heavenly comfort. Waking up to the picturesque lake view from the master bedroom was a delightful surprise. The property's proximity to Caberfae Peaks (only 20 minutes away) and The Timbers, a charming restaurant just 8 minutes distant, added to its allure. Furthermore, the host's kindness, attentiveness, and warmth were exceptional. In sum, it was an unforgettable sojourn, and we eagerly anticipate returning! Bernice
