In Wexford County, a diverse community loves to live, work, and play. It’s a place of sprawling national forest, a rolling topography that boasts some of Michigan’s highest hills and ridges, excellent fishing lakes—including the renowned Lake Mitchell and Lake Cadillac—a long stretch of one of America’s finest rivers, and farms of cattle and row crops.

The town of Cadillac entirely surrounds Lake Cadillac, which, at 1,150 acres makes it one of the largest “in town” lakes in the United States. Wexford’s other small towns—Manton, Buckley, Mesick, Harrietta—speak of a strong connection to the farmland that surrounds them.

Life in Wexford County means that fishing, hunting, mountain biking, hiking, skiing and snowmobiling and more are within minutes of home, and days spent outside are hallmarks of a good life here. People relocating to Cadillac often do so because the outdoors is an important part of their lives.
