This cottage been with our family for three generations and holds a special place in our hearts. Origianlly used as a family cottage and later updated into a year around home. We have loved this location because of its close proximity to Lake Michigan and beautiful water and sunset views as well as its location close to Bay View, Petoskey, and the many activities that this area has offer.
The Windy Cedars Cottage is centrally located near the resort community of Petoskey and the historic Bay View Association. Enjoy the many shops and restaurants of Petoskey and nearby Harbor Springs. The area offers three outstanding ski resorts ( Boyne Highlands, Nub's Nob, and Boyne Mountain) and many world class golf courses. Just steps from the back door you will find the Little Traverse Wheel way / bike path that runs all the way from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs. The sandy beaches of the Petoskey State park are a short drive, walk, or bike ride away. The nearby Bay View Association has many programs that are open to the public. A great day trip to famous Mackinaw City and Mackinac Island is only a half hour drive away.
Essentially has 4 bedrooms with 3.5 baths. Everything is updated, clean, convenient. Good location for biking and walks. It would be hard to find a better vacation place for a larger group.
Windy Cedars is a beautiful home - - cozy and comfy and very well located. Great neighborhood for quiet walks. Would highly recommend it.
Our family had a wonderful, relaxing vacation at the Windy Cedars Cottage. Windy Cedars is a beautiful home. The large kitchen had everything we needed for cooking meals at home. There are two large living spaces, which meant the kids could be watching movies or playing board games in one room and the adults could be in another. (sometimes we all need a break from each other!) The home was clean and well-equipped with bath towels, beach towels and linens. The owners have thought of everything and go above and beyond to make sure you have an enjoyable stay. My children loved being so close to the beach. Each morning they headed straight to the shore to look for Petoskey stones while we enjoyed coffee on the wrap-around porch. You could not ask for a better location -- right off the bike path, close to the grocery store and an easy bike ride or jog to the state park beach. I agree with the previous review that stated the pictures don't do the home justice. The owner was very friendly and extremely prompt on returning our security deposit. You will not be disappointed if you choose the Windy Cedars Cottage for your home away from home.
Amazing cottage. I am sitting in the wonderful family room now writing this review. You will instantly feel at home. It is even better than the pictures. The owners have updated everything and it is extremely clean. My favorite was the thick plush white bath towels:). They have everything you will need for your vacation. Be prepared that there is no air conditioning but they have a million fans in the house to keep it cool. The beach is also very rocky....kids enjoyed walking there to skip rocks but not somewhere where you would spend the day swimming. Petosky state park is so close and has a great beach. Thank you for a great week!!!!!!!!
My family and I spent a wonderful 4th of July week at this property. It was very clean and we felt at home immediately. The owners have thought of everything a renter could possibly need or want. A fully stocked kitchen, laundry room, beach chairs and beach towels etc. we LOVED the location. The bike path is right outside the door and we biked everyday on the most scenic bike path I have ever been on! It is a very short bike ride to downtown Petosky and a very short drive to the Petoskey state park.
The beautiful porch overlooks lake Michigan and we were presented with a gorgeous sunset over the water every night.
We very comfortably fit 6 adults and 2 children in this home. We will defiantly rent this property again!
Located directly adjacent to the Bay View Association. Many of the Bay View programs are open to the public. The beautiful sandy beaches and sand dunes of the Petoskey State Park are a short walk or bike ride away. The Little Traverse Wheel way ( paved bike path) is directly out the back door. This paved bike path runs all the way from Charlevoix to Harbor Springs. .
