About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

The Cedarview is a very nice 3 bedroom 3 1/2 bath home located on the east shore of South Manistique Lake. Summer rentals include a 20' Pontoon Boat with a 60hp four stroke motor. If everything goes as planned there should be a new 2018 pontoon in the spring. I will have pictures when they become available. There is also a canoe and paddle boat available for your use. Central Air was added in the spring of 2018.

The house is set up very well for families to share, each of the 3 bedrooms has it's own private bath with a whirlpool tub in the master bath. The first floor has a fully furnished kitchen, large dining/living/great room area with a gas fireplace, laundry room with a half bath, and one bedroom with a queen bed and private bath. Upstairs boasts the master bedroom with queen bed and satellite TV, also a loft sitting area overlooking the great room. The second upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a full/twin bunk bed complemented with a TV/ DVD player for games and movie watching but does not receive satellite.

You can relax on the large front porch, take a swim in the lake where the water is shallow and the bottom is sandy, try your hand at the great fishing to be found or cruise on the pontoon. If your into day tripping many wonderful sites await you in all directions.

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at your cabin. It worked just perfectly for us. Within ashort time we could be in any direction for the day and doing lots of sightseeing. As everyone else said, it is very clean, well decorated and has everything you might need for a weeks stay. Great views everywhere you looked. The fall colors were great. The Dreamland Cafe is a great place to catch a quick meal. it was worth the long drive from SD to relax and enjoy for a week. Thanks Kevin and Tammy.

True Up North Beauty

  • 5 of 5

Well I'm not sure I can add much more than what previous guests have already commented but I'll try :) Beautiful location, secluded for that great "Up North" feeling. The home is impeccably decorated which gives you that "Relax and Unwind" feeling from the time you step inside. And as you turn each corner investigating your new surroundings you'll find yourself saying..."Wow....Wow...Oh WOW". Three very well appointed bedrooms each with its own bath and an additional half bath in the laundry room. The home is equipped with everything you will need inside and out. The lake view is spectacular day and night. Great sunsets! The pontoon boat was wonderful. The lake is crystal and quite large. AND if you happen to need additional room for that big family get together, the owners have another wonderful place right next door! Thanks again to our hosts Kevin and Tammy :)

What a great place! The house is very clean, well designed and beautifully decorated. Great room (kitchen/living room/dining room) for family time, but quiet, private bedroom areas for time apart too. The lot is private with spectacular view of beautiful Lake Manistique. The week we were there, the fishermen in our family were rewarded with more than 25 pike! We are already planning and looking forward to our visit next summer.

This place was amazing. Everything was very well equipped, very clean and everything you could want. The owners came over to make such all was well and it was nice to meet them. We would definitely stay there again. We had a great time and can't wait to go back. We came from NC and it was worth the drive.

Our Family had a wonderful week at Cedarview. The house is simply beautiful and very comfortable. We have rented a number of places in the past all over the country but this was the best yet! The little town of Curtis is two miles away and very cute, everything you might need. Our hosts were very nice to deal with and called during our stay to make sure all was well. We did drive to the falls and Whitefish Point, but the best part of the week was simply hanging out, enjoying the great pontoon boat, the stars, the lake, and the house itself. Everything was perfect. All of us, ages 2 thru 59, had a great time and were so very sad to leave. A return trip to Cedarview is something we are looking forward to soon.

Relaxing Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice week at Cedarview. The cabin is the perfect lake house...tastefully done and very cozy. The sandy, shallow shoreline is lovely for playing and lounging in the water. The pontoon boat was great for mid lake fishing and sunset lake tours. The cabin is a short drive to Pictured Rocks, Tahquamenon Falls and Mackinac Island. It's the perfect vacation home! Can't wait to go back!
