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.

Super place to stay on the Leelanau peninsula

  • 5 of 5
We rented this nice home for 4 nights at the end of October and really enjoyed ourselves. Lots of nice places within 10-30 minutes drive day trips or a shorter outing. This house is very clean and has very comfortable beds - not something you can say about a lot of rentals! We will definitely rent again next year, looking forward to it!

We stayed for a week in early August and what a great home to come back to after a busy day at the beach, the Dune Climb, or Glen Arbor. John has the house well stocked with utensils, etc and we were very impressed with how clean everything was. The house is very comfortable and has an outstanding yard and decks and perfect for bonfires. It was a bit of a drive to Empire and that area but was still a nice drive through Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore. Plenty of room for this family of 4 and lots of room to play football or baseball in the yard.

Great place

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed several times. We have always been very pleased and we highly recommend the house to anyone.
John and Connie are wonderful hosts and the property is immaculately maintained.
The house is centrally located in the Leelanau peninsula so nothing is too far, and is on a quiet road.
For those who have never visited Leelanau county it one of the most beautiful places in the world.

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.
