My family is thrilled we chose Cedarwood! My husband, adult son, and I booked a two-bedroom lakefront unit. Our views were spectacular, and we enjoyed the air, tranquility, and lake vistas. The kitchen and bedrooms were spotless. The owners were friendly and helpful and answered our questions with honestly and patience. We asked a LOT of questions about the area....

Arriving at Cedarwood was such a surprise to find it in this beautiful setting right on the lakefront and yet close enough to the city. We stayed 3 nights and the accomodation was extremely comfortable and very clean. Fiona had turned on the heater so it was very warm and welcoming. The spa pool looked very enticing but didn't have...

This was one of the cleanest motels I have ever stayed at. I am a motel cleaner so i check everything and this was superb. Staff were friendly. We only stayed one night but were very impressed by the cleanliness and the perfect spot right on the lakefront. Superb views.

Stayed for the weekend. The location was great, close enough to the city but far enough away to be peaceful. Beautiful lakeside views. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were fun, friendly and very helpful. Conference venue was more than adequate for the small event we had held there. Outdoor pool looked very inviting and had it been the middle...

We had a fantastic long weekend at Cedarwood. Our children loved the pools, despite the cold and rain, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.
