Cedar Landing Resort is located on beautiful M-22 between Frankfort and Empire in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. We have two cabins that sit apart from each other so you are able to enjoy your privacy, yet close enough to make this a good location for family and friend gatherings. Please view https://www.vrbo.com/3997623ha for information about our other cottage. For even more information visit our website at www.cedarlandingresort.com or find us on facebook!

About Emily Pangborn
I grew up in West Michigan, live & work in Southeast Michigan, my Cabin is located in "Up North Michigan."
Emily Pangborn purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Emily Pangborn chose Benzie County
Lake front cabin with a dock, boat and a beach on a beautiful quiet lake. I couldn't resist it's charm.
What makes this Cabin unique
I'm always improving something at the cabins. Hired a new cleaning crew and property manager and they are utterly fantastic. Going to bed listening to the trees and the lake is awesome. Waking up to the sounds of nature on the lake is incredible. Watching the chipmunks zip back and forth is entertaining. Don't want to cook? Walk up the stairs and down the driveway to the Manitou for early dinner at 4:30pm, order the prime rib on Saturday night with a few ales. It hits the spot, head back and start a campfire and unwind.

This was the second year in a row that we stayed. We were planning on making this an every year thing until I receive very disappointing email from Emily.(property mngr) She didn’t know that last year we had brought extra car and a very small trailer that our paddle board was on. I sincerely didn’t mean to break the rules. If it was such a big problem there is a more polite way letting us know.
The people who have private property should have signs stating this.
Never again 😢�
Dear future renters,
I would like to share some information about this unfortunate review.
We require a pet addendum and fee for each pet that stays at our resort because we want to ensure the safety of all of our guests by verifying vaccinations etcetera. This guest filled the form out and paid the pet fee of $50 last year but this year they did not fill out the form or pay the fee and still brought their dog. We ask for the additional fee because having dogs in the cottage requires more extensive cleaning between guests. This guest was politely asked in an email to pay the $50 pet fee after their stay.
Secondly, we ask all renters to contact us regarding extra vehicles because there are numerous homeowners and limited parking spaces. We have never denied someone who needs to bring an extra vehicle, but we do ask that they park them in a different location.
Third, on the rental agreement it clearly states that trailers are not allowed. This is not just our rule, but the rule of the homeowner's association. The reason the rule is in place is because parking is limited and we have had issues with renters parking on the septic drain field and causing major damage.
I am disappointed in this entire situation, and it is my hope that this review does not deter future renters from staying. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or concerns regarding our rules and/or rental agreement.
Emily (Property Manager)
LOVE this cabin. Sitting feet from the lake, watching the kids play on the beach, kayaking on the lake, and tuning out of reality - this little spot is perfect for tuning out from the world and getting the "up north" lake cabin experience. We will be back!
Thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We hope to have you back next year!
The cabin was just what we needed in a quiet and peaceful area.
Cozy Lakeside Retreat
Sweet little cabin on a lake. Enjoyed the views and location near Sleeping Bear Dunes. Great trails, quaint towns and beautiful scenic overlooks.
Thank you for your review of Cedar Landing Resort, we are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay!
A vacation which never fails to refresh the spirit!
The property and cottage are clean and well-maintained. Fresh towels and bedding were provided. A property representative was always available to assist if there were any issues/concerns or needs. The beach was clean and groomed. Kayaks and rowboats were available for use. It was quiet and serene during our stay.
We have been renting the cottage for many years now and this has become a much- anticipated and joyful annual tradition.
Thank you for your review of Cedar Landing Resort! We are looking forward to your visit again this year!
Clean & well cared for.
Loved the location. Peaceful & private. Enjoyed the kayaks provided, only wish there were more paddles to allow all of us to kayak (only 3 paddles but 5 boats). Wi-Fi would be nice but it was nice for the kids to be off devices. Really enjoyed our stay, thank you.
Thank you for your review of Cedar Landing Resort. We are sorry that there was some miscommunication regarding the kayaks, as we discussed the two other kayaks are privately owned, and not intended for renters to use (that is why there are not paddles). We have updated our rental agreement so that future renters will know which kayaks to use and we are planning to purchase more kayaks and paddles in the future!
