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!

Beautiful and peaceful
All the amenities you offer are amazing. The home is beautiful and the property is so private and peaceful. While we were there the owners delivered some new mattresses and a new outdoor gas grill which was much appreciated. We will surely return.

Fantastic "Up North" Experience
Nine friends and I stayed at this gorgeous cadillac retreat last weekend and loved every minute. Fantastic views and a little time on the lake with the paddle boat made for a fun relaxing weekend get away. We were already talking about next year before we left. This is definitely a recommended stay


FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Frank, we love that you are already planning on coming back next year!  Cadillac Retreat is a fabulous place.  That upper deck is so perfect for reading, napping or simply contemplating nature.  Long Lake is great for summer boating in the kayaks and paddle boat.

AWESOME!!!!!
This cabin is amazing with beautiful views! The one downfall is finding the location of the cabin. The address on the site says 774 South Long Lake Rd, when the actual address is 744 E Long Rd! Overall I would reccomend this cabin to anyone!


FRESHWATER RESPONSE:

Hi Kyle,  We are so glad that you enjoyed staying at Cadillac Retreat.  It is a great location.  Hopefully, you had time to enjoy using the kayaks and paddle boat.  We corrected the address issue - thanks for bringing it to our attention.   We hope to see you again soon.
