Located just a ½ mile from the ORV trails, by Pere Marquette Forrest, the Cadillac Retreat is ideal for the adventurer and those that just want a gorgeous, quiet lake-side vacation. With 40 feet of private beach, a semi-sandy-bottom lake, and 2 kayaks and 1 paddle boat for guests to enjoy, this vacation screams fun in the sun! Long Lake, is a quiet all-sports lake, which guests can get to in just a short walk down a few steps. Nature is all around and left untouched for good reason! Be sure to watch out for the sunset view that will capture your heart.
The Cadillac Retreat is an air conditioned home that has 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a gorgeous stone fireplace, finished walk-out basement, and full kitchen for up to 10 guests to enjoy. Fire pit, patio, and tons of outdoor furniture are present for guests to sit back, relax, and gaze at the bald eagles that frequent the area! Let the kids play a round of pool or ping pong, while adults take a scenic stroll or just lay-out on the upper-level deck.
If you are looking for some adventure, attach the trailer and bring the ATVs or snowmobiles up for some action! There is plenty of room to park and play!
