About John Sullivan

We moved to the Cedar area in 1989 from Ann Arbor, and pursued careers as glass artists (now retired). We both love Leelanau County for its natural beauty and relaxed lifestyle.

John Sullivan purchased this house in 2009

Why John Sullivan chose Cedar

This was a natural for us since this rental is only a few miles from our house making any maintenance and/or repair quite easy. The central location in the County is a plus for vacationers and tourists as any destination is just a few minutes away.

What makes this house unique

Very low traffic rural area, yet close to all the attractions of the County. Pet friendly, and close to a dog-friendly beach. The owners/caretakers live near-by in case of any unforeseen issues.

Guestbook comments from the owner

...your home worked perfectly for (us), and was within close proximity to all the fun sites in Leelanau County. The house is beautiful, and we really enjoyed our stay here. Thanks again.

Perfect home for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 8 days at Johns wonderful house.
The house is clean, spacious and everything you need is available and in very good conditions.
The master bedroom is perfect with the master bathroom.
The house is perfect for at least 4 adults and 3 kids, like us.
John is great and he takes care of he guests!
The yard is wonderful and perfect for families with kids.
There are two cozy decks and a balcony.
We had nearly every day barbecue and made a bonfire in at night.
We can just recommend this nice vacation rental.

Great Stay in Cedar!

  • 4 of 5
John is a great host and the property is more like a home than a rental. Everything has been thought of including any kitchen gadget you would want, a generous cable package with a ton of free movies. John even was flexible to offer me to pay over several visa cycles, showing just how kind and flexible he really is. Cedar is so close to all of Leelanau that everything is within a 15-30 drive. There is a nice dog beach close, and everyone in this area seemed so nice, strangers would even wave when they passed. One issue we had upon check out was that the housekeeper came early and we felt a bit pressured to leave. Maybe as an improvement have the housekeeper come a little bit after the checkout time. If you are in this area, I would have no hesititation staying here. We have only stayed in one other rental, and when you compare the cleanliness of this one to that there is no comparison. This property was just like your home, spotless. A lot of the reviews are misleading sometimes when they say a property is clean. We are pickey, and this was clean!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind review. We'll take your suggestion regarding post-checkout cleaning, and make sure not to arrive too early unless notified by a guest of early departure. We're glad you had a relaxing vacation otherwise, and hope to see you in the future.

GREAT HOME, GREAT LOCATION.

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay at this well appointed, clean home this July!
The home is located right in the middle of the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula---our favorite place to vacation in summer. It is close in proximity to all of our favorite places....Glen Arbor, Leland, Suttons Bay and of course Traverse City.
We have been renting homes in the area for several years and my wife and I think that this home was the cleanest and felt most like home. It sits on a large lot and is very private and secluded. No expense was spared in the remodeling of this old home. It has top quality windows, flooring, cabinets, woodwork and bathroom fixtures. There is a lot of natural hickory in the flooring , cabinets, wooden blinds, and woodwork.....very impressive. Nice comfortable leather couch in living room and a large flat screen HD TV with Dish Network premium programming.
Premium air conditioning (with remote controls) on each floor and ceiling fans in the bedrooms. Beds were very comfy with premium sheets and ceiling fans. Dozens of ample, thick bath towels in each of the 2 bathrooms. Large , deluxe ceramic walk in shower in first floor bathroom....big enough to accommodate several people! Deluxe shower heads in both bathrooms. Water tasted exactly like the best city water I have tasted. Deluxe gas stove in kitchen, as well as dishwasher and full size refrigerator with icemaker.
The home has several walkout decks as well as a raised concrete terrace with a deluxe barbecue grill which came in handy. Plenty of closets for storage.
The landscaping around the home is impressive.
The owner was a great communicator and a nice guy!!
What more can I say. This place has it all!!!!

Loved the home and location!

  • 5 of 5
John was a gracious and personable host. This home is in a very quiet location - out of the way - but close to everything. We liked that we didn't have to worry about our kids or dogs bothering anyone else as its on a large lot. We did day or half day trips around the peninsula, visited Sleeping Bear Dunes, wine tasting, the casino and multiple beaches. The home was very clean and had everything you needed. We will be back again!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic find! We've rented several houses in the past for vacations, and this one ranks among the best. It was very clean, nicely appointed, and the owner was gracious and very welcoming. There's a large yard, with room for a dog or children to play, and multiple decks for lounging. It's in farmland and quiet, but within minutes of everything the Leland/Sleeping Bear area has to offer. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this great place again!

A great home base to enjoy the Leelanau area

  • 5 of 5
The house is exactly as advertised and the setting is very peaceful. The owners have worked very hard to make this a great place to stay. We were 10 minutes away from Lake Michigan, Leland and Lake Leelanau.
The kitchen is fully stocked with the things needed to make a quick breakfast or a fine dinner. The decks were wonderful to sit on and view the incredibly dark skies. We will definitely be back.
