Love staying here. Much more relaxing than staying in a hotel. You can relax, cook your own meals, have a camp fire & just enjoy hanging out with friends. Very quiet setting. Had some turkeys come through & a deer. We will be back next year!

Thanks Linda for taking the time to leave us a nice review! We're glad you can relax and move into your cabin and begin to feel at home. All week long we've had about 8 turkeys strutting around! They are so fun to watch. Thank you again! Travel Safely~ Tom and Lorraine

Our family gathered at Red Cedar for a reunion. We had members from at least 6 states in ages of 7 months to 83 years. The Red Cedar was perfect. Many area to get together as a group yet individual family cabins gave time for rest and time away. 16 of us did the canoe trip and had a great time The hosts were awesome. Ready to meet any needs we had. I would recommend for any family
