                We gathered in Cedar for a family reunion. The listing description and the photos only begin to entice you to rent this property. You have to experience all it's charms to realize what a great time you have in store. The house, yard and neighborhood are well maintained and groomed. Days start with sunrise on the deck with coffee in hand to plan the activities for the day. So much is close by - hikes through the woods or on the beach, a stroll around a nearby town to poke in galleries or grab a freshly baked pie, running through Sleeping Bear sand dunes, wine tasting at a local vineyard, fresh corn from the local farm stand or a swim in Lake Michigan. My favorite was rock collecting. The variety of colors is amazing. The jackpot are the Petoskey stones which are petrified coral and used in jewelry. There wasn't enough time to do everything so we'll set a date to return. No question, I will recommend it to anyone wanting a comfortable, relaxing getaway!

                Recommended for: Age 55+, adventure seekers, girls getaway, sightseeing.

                Beautiful location. Quiet area. Easy to get to nearby towns. 2 of the 4 beds were so comfortable, we wanted to take them home. We swam at Good Harbor beach every day (a 3 minute drive from the house), it was perfect (no rocks). Sat on the deck every evening to watch the amazing sunsets. Thank goodness for the reliable AC, it was very hot when we visited. We loved this place so much we are already checking our calendars to book another visit!

                This property is very comfortable and the description was accurate. It is nicely located with easy access to all that Leelanau County has to offer. The views are extraordinary! Most of our time at the home was spent on the deck. Very spacious and great open concept kitchen. Didn't use the fireplace as we had weather in the 90's, but our granddog loved the automatic sprinklers! Thanks to Kyle and Betsy for a warm welcoming package and the use of their wonderful home. We loved it and will be back! We highly recommend staying here if you don't mind not being right on a lake. Took short trips to Leland, Glen Arbor, Suttons Bay, Cedar, for Polka Fest, and Traverse City for Cherry Fest. Also had a wonderful pontoon boat ride on Lake Leelanau and played golf at Manitou Passage and Sugar Loaf's Old Course. Can't beat Leelanau County! It's awesome!

                Our family had a wonderful stay and it was so nice to come "home" to our beautiful perch up on this ridge. We loved relaxing in the comfortable living room in front of the roaring fire - such a beautiful hearth. The kitchen had everything we needed and we absolutely loved hanging out in the Adirondack chairs taking in the panoramic view of both lakes. You can tell that this is the home of artists from all of the touches. The night sky is spectacular- we stopped counting at 20 shooting stars one night.

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: I am an artist. My wife and I have been married for over 20 years and raised our family in Michigan.

              Why the Owner Chose Cedar:
              We have been enjoying the Leelanau area for many years. It is easy to get to, has amazing beaches for walking and rock collecting, clear water for swimming and sailing, and quaint towns to explore. We love to visit in all seasons.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We purchased this 2nd home so we could enjoy the leelanau area year round. We fell in love with this house the moment we stepped onto the deck and experienced the breathtaking view. We love the secluded beaches for walking and the numerous hiking trails.
