“Great time by one and all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Chris and Jo Ellen were excellent hosts! We had three cabins for 16 of us. We had so much fun! There was plenty to do and lots of equipment for us to use. It was very kid friendly! The cabins were very comfortable. They even went out of their way to be helpful when keys were locked in a car and had great ideas for one last pontoon ride for the five kids! Wow that was so nice! Delightful setting being right on the lake! We would come again for sure!

Room Tip: Cabin one was a little larger. I would recommend others to come here for sure! I hope we get to co...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We stayed a week at Cedars Resort in May 2014 . We absolutely loved it! The cabins are exceptionally clean & rustic. The owners were so very nice and so very helpful. We loved that we had a deck off the cabin that we could view the lake. The location of the cabins is wonderful and just a short trip to Charlevoix or Bellaire. I highly recommend this as a family vacation spot!

So nice to get away to a clean friendly place. Owners were great and the water way is excellent to travel from lake to lake. Only trouble we had was it was 93* on Monday and 54*degrees on Thursday. Would really be beautiful with the fall colors

My husband, 4yr old daughter and I recently stayed at Cedars Resorts and had a wonderful time! We were in Cabin #2, which is the one located right on the lake and the views were absolutely gorgeous. The cabin had 2 small bedrooms with 2 double beds, and I was beyond estatic to find that the cabin was extremely clean! It was also supplied with everything you could need for a week away, except for towels, which we were told ahead of time to bring. The decks attached to the cabins are well maintained as are the charcoal bbqs.
The owners, Jo Ellen and Chris, were very friendly and made sure we were satisfied with everything. The resort provided canoes, kayaks, and rowboats which we made use of. They also offer use of a motor boat as well as a pontoon for rent, which, unfortunately, we did not get to use this time. The property is well maintained and they provide a nice little beach area which my daughter loved. We made a few day trips as well to Traverse City and Mackinaw Island but there was plenty to keep all of us occupied at the site as well.
We would definitely recommend Cedars Resort for families, and when we are ready for another cabin vacation, we would not hesitate to return!

Room Tip: For a small group, book Cabin 2, as it is the closest cabin to the water.

Very clean, comfortable, and family friendly. Felt like home. Owners made sure we had what we needed. Showed us around to make sure we knew where the boats, charcoal, fishing gear, etc. were. My kids didn't want to leave. Will stay again when in the area. We stayed in Cabin 1 which had two bedrooms and a futon. One bedroom with a double and one with 2 twin beds.

Very clean, family friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone! Owners made sure everything that was needed was there. Canoes, kayaks, and boats available at no charge to guests. Plenty of things to do on site.

We've been coming to the Cedars since our children were in diapers. Now we are coming as a couple with adult children from time to time. The Cedars is a haven with just enough amenities. The lake is convenient with kayaks, boats, canoes, motors for rent.

There are loons, owls, swans, ducks and of course, fishing. I caught my one and only bass, a 2.5 pounder, right off the dock at the Cedars some years ago. I have the photo!

The owners are supportive and fun. There is much to see and do, or you can do nothing. Kings Orchard is 5 minutes away. Barnes county park with a love beach is 10 minutes. Charlevoix is 25 minutes. Leelanu and Alden are also nearby. The classic Brownwood, which may open or at least the store will, is also nearby, at the Torch Lake area.

Check out the website and the photos on Flickr and Facebook. It is a beautiful place to be.

Room Tip: These are cabins with a kitchen, two bedrooms, and open kitchen and living room. Cabin 1 is larger...

Thank you for your kind words about our resort. We have enjoyed watching your children, summer to summer, grow into such nice young adults.
