Cadillac Area Lakefront Cottage with Boat - All Season

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This lakefront cottage offers an affordable family vacation on a quiet private lake (Stone Ledge Lake) near Cadillac. This all-sports lake is large enough for skiing and jet skis, but small enough (no public access) to limit the number of large boats. The lake offers good fishing for large-mouth bass, northern pike and panfish. A rowboat and paddleboat are included. We're proud to report that our family of Loons has returned this year and offer great viewing and relaxing sounds. We also see the bald eagles regularly. The lake at the cottage has a sandy bottom and is good for swimming. Enjoy beautiful sunsets from the lakeside deck and reconnect with your family and friends around the lakeside campfire (wood is provided).

The cottage is clean and comfortable, but not fancy. The kitchen is fully furnished. You just need to bring your own towels, linens and food. Guests are expected to clean the cottage when leaving and leave it in the same condition that they find it. Linens and cleaning services are available at additional costs, but most guests are glad to clean in return for the affordable rates we offer.

The cottage is close to Cadillac with convenient shopping, restaurants and various tourists attractions. There are 10 golf courses within 25 miles and 4 separate casinos within 75 miles of the cottage. Lake Michigan beaches are only 50 miles away (Manistee) and the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Leelanau Pennisula, Traverse City and Petoskey areas make convenient day trips.

The Cadillac area also offers a vast network of paved and unpaved trails for biking and hiling. We are located in the Manistee National Forest for hiking and hunting adventures. We are close to world-class trout streams and rivers. Great lakes charter fishing is also a popular choice.

Why Tom Bihlmeyer chose Cadillac

We also live on beautiful Stoneledge Lake and purchased this vacation rental to offer a place for friends and relatives to stay when they come to visit. This is our only rental property and we are proud of the long list of repeat renters that have enjoyed the lake over the years, as we have also.

What makes this cottage unique

Since there is no public access, the lake is generally very quiet and peaceful. A great place to relax. You will watch the sun set over the lake from your lakefront deck, or from the fishing boat, and then enjoy the perfect ending to your day around the campfire reconnecting with family and friends.

Great lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend on the lake. The house has all the essentials you need. The owners are very thoughtful and stopped by to make sure everything was in order. After spending the morning fishing, we drove up to Traverse City for wine tastings. Returning home to thr fire pit to make s' doesn't get much better than that.

Respiratory Issues? Beware

  • 1 of 5

This cottage has a beautiful setting and a nice layout. It's a bit tired, and not very clean. Unfortunately there is something else wrong, it has a bad stench. Originally it was explained as cigarette smoke, but it is something more foul than that, perhaps mold? It permeated everything we brought with us. I would not recommend if you have any respiratory sensitivities.

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear your comments. I agree that the cottage had a mild "smoke" smell and I offered to provide air freshener and to try to air out the cottage. Our policy is that smokers are supposed to only smoke outside, but I expect the previous guests violated that policy. Since this guest had severe asthma, she said that she did not want me to use Fabreze or Lysol or any other type of air freshener. We allowed them to leave after the first night and are sorry for their inconvenience.

Wonderful, peaceful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

A gem of a place on a private lake. I stayed with three friends for a fishing / golfing weekend. Peaceful and relaxing. The nearby golf courses, only minutes away, were fantastic. Fishing on the lake was good (pike). I will most certainly return with friends and family.

Well equipped, Comfortable,Clean, Great location,

  • 5 of 5

We was looking for a quite, peaceful, relaxing getaway. I don't think we could have chosen a better location than Tom & Debs cottage on Stone Ridge Lake. It was so nice to just wounder around the peaceful quite lake on the boat provided with the house. enjoyed many great mornings on the deck watching the sun come up and evenings watching the sun go down. And the fishing was fantastic! Tom was very accommodating. and is just right up the road if we would have needed anything.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family (including our dog) enjoyed a wonderful stay here. The owners are very polite and helpful. The home is nice clean and comfortable, stocked with pretty much anything you would need. Fishing wasn't the best but several other lakes in the area to try out as well. The lake was clean and not to busy to enjoy water sports. Quite area and friendly neighbors. Will be planning another visit!
