12 two & three bedroom housekeeping cottages On Lake Charlevoix
About Bob Draves
This family owned vacation destination has been in my family since 1957. Cedar Rest Resort can be your vacation home away from home.
Bob Draves purchased this Cabin in 1976
Why Bob Draves chose East Jordan
This property provides a place for families to enjoy not only the area but each other. The closest road is over a 1/4 mile away, situated in 13 acres of woods and buffered with 40 acres of farmers fields. We provide high speed internet for the workaholic if they can not break away, otherwise just enjoy what nature has to offer.
What makes this Cabin unique
The uniqueness of this property is the seclusion that you can enjoy yet within an hours drive a multitude of things to do and see. This is one, if not the only place, on Lake Charlevoix, where a family can have a reunion secluded with their only space and living quarters. We are on a lake of over 17,000 acres and 56 miles of shoreline. In front of your cottage you can see down over 14 feet to the lake bottom. Enjoy fishing off of our docks or from a boat. See Eagles fishing while sitting on your picnic table. Watch the loons dive for minnows and listen to their calls at night.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
This place is a bust!
Floors leaching water, the smell of mold and musty is unbearable and the building was UN-clean. No sheets, Towels, Blankets, or soaps. At 90 Degrees and no AC. No TV, Radio and the internet would never connect although service was called. The roads are rough and I can't imagine had there been any rain as they would be a total disaster. Forget about bringing boat over 18 foot long and expect to maneuver through the grounds without a ground guide. The idea of a doc fee is insane. I simply cannot in good faith recommend this place in the least bit.
For 40 years we have a repeat business of over 70%. Nothing more needs to be said.
Wonderful Place to spend your vacation
This was a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed the lake beach while we were at the Cedar Rest Resort. Boyne City, Charlevoix are some of the nearest attractions. But I would go stay there just to relax and not go anywhere. The host were really friendly and very helpful. They live there and always there to help you.
Fantastic Family Getaway
My dad rented just about the entire place last summer; we were the only family there, and all four of us kids were able to bring our children, spouses, etc. The lakefront playground, sandy lake bottom and seclusion made a great environment for the kids to shout and jump and splash without bothering a soul. The grownups spent our time around a campfire, and one night we stayed up nearly the entire night to watch the northern lights over Lake Charlevoix. Every sunset was spectacular, the mosquitoes were minimal, the home owners were onsite and available but generally out of sight, and we had everything we could possibly want. It isn't your typical upscale Lake Charlevoix fudgy cabin, affordable and perfectly suited for my family. I can't wait to go back!
Thanks for the comment. Glad we can be seen and not a bother while you enjoy your stay.. Bob
