About Nancy Smith
My husband (Gary) and I (Nancy) have been married for 31 years and have three grown girls. I grew up in Flushing, MI and Gary grew up in Flint MI. Through the years our experiences and life choices have moved our family different places but our final stop was in Traverse City, MI. sixteen years ago.
Nancy Smith purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Nancy Smith chose Cadillac
Our family picked Cadillac and this cabin because I grew up camping just down the street at the Mitchell state park. Our family camping vacations were the best memories ever!! Then when my husband and I met we started the same traditions with our girls. We even would come up to the Interlochen state park. Go to the cherry festival in Traverse city. We loved going to the sand dunes. Making the choice in Cadillac, we can still experience all those things and more. We have our own little "campground" right in our backyard!! Swimming, boating, sunbathing, peddle boat, lawn games and campfires with s'mores. We are looking forward to making more memories with our girls and our future grand children, for years to come.
What makes this Cottage unique
The best benefit that Gary and I can think of is waking up to the most beautiful sunrises. Able to walk right out to our own private lakefront!! Our fun filled day awaits us with our family and friends. Then when evening comes with a gorgeous sunset and a warm campfire. Nothing beats a warm summer night!! Hope you find the joy in your stay as much as we do.

Smith Cottage review Lake Mitchell
Nice view of the lake
Cottage well supplied with necessities and some extras (books, movies)
Good location-easy access to shopping, dining, etc.
Some issues noted:
Shower drain not flush with shower base (safety issue)
Cottage difficult to heat; unable to regulate gas log fireplace, 3 season room with large gap at the bottom of the door allowing the cold air to come in. Gap is big enough that rodents could access the cottage.
We got a text message from the owner late the evening prior to our scheduled departure asking us what time we were leaving the next day...the checkout time was clearly stated as being 11:00 A.M. The owner stated they she and her husband were planning on coming to the cottage that day (the day of our check out). We packed up that night and left early the next morning-no breakfast, etc. We felt pressured to leave the cottage prior to check out time.
The cottage was super clean and the water was perfect-it's so shallow so our kids could splash around without life jackets. We caught lots of fish off the dock and explored Maistee trails and went bowling in town.
Beautiful Cabin on Lake Mitchell. Owners were very accommodating and helpful!
We spent a week at the cabin and could not have asked for more. The owners were very accommodating and had most things you forget to pack at the cabin. We will definitely try to get back there next year.
Peaceful and relaxing
A beautiful cabin with a beautiful view. We stayed here for a week. The owners supplied all the essentials so we had a worry free beginning to our vacation. They checked on us once and did not disturb us the rest of the time. The sunrise in the morning and the moon lit master room at night makes you feel like you never want to leave bed. The water at the lake in July is perfect temperature. Was able to take out the peddle boat and catch some small mouth bass. The kayaks were fun also. The neighbors are all friendly and didn’t disturb us. Had a nice campfire every night under the stars. The cabin transported us to another world for a week and was just what we needed.
The Smith cabin is lovely! Such a beautiful spot on the lake. Home away from home.
We had such a lovely time..a day of rain but the cabin was so cozy. The lake is right outside your door!! The neighborhood is very friendly an peaceful. Will most definitely stay at the Smith cabin as many times as we can get away!!
The Perfect Fall Getaway
We had a lovely stay at the Smith's Cabin. Just feet from the water the fire pit was ideal for the cool evenings and the kayaks were a fun bonus during the day. Just minutes away from beautiful hiking trails. Nancy was very helpful, we hope to stay here again soon!
