  • Sad, but true


    The property was suitable for our needs, but we had some issues. Dishes and utensils were put away dirty. We had to clean them. There were multiple drain and plumbing issues as well. The host had to come out to fix them. The kitchen was not very well stocked, especially for a home that sleeps 10+ people. We've stayed numerous places as we travel for work. This location was lackluster

  • Perfect location


    Just what we were looking for. Stayed with two families. Four adults and three kids. It was plenty of room. Two bedrooms went unused. Hot water never ran out. Convenient laundry. Location is the best part. Halfway between Glen Arbor and Traverse City. Walking distance to Ice Cream (always busy though) tavern with amazing pizza, a coffee shop, Buntings Convenient store and gas.

    Lots of room for a large family. Nice firepit and close proximity to beaches. Cedar was a very charming place. I will be coming back for sure. Loved the multiple high-quality screens for movies on rainy days.

  • Perfect location


    We had 4 adults and 3 kids and had plenty of room plus extra. Never ran out of hot water. Laundry is a plus especially after swimming daily. The house and area felt very safe as well. Traffic out front is the only negative. The small town of Cedar is amazing. Coffee shop, ice cream store, convenient store with gas, tavern with awesome pizza all right across the street.
