About Cindy Wenger

Owned by Laura & Pete Ryan (who summer next door) and Cindy & Mark Wenger (2 doors down). All from Columbus, Ohio (even though the Ryans currently live in Atlanta) we all call Drummond our home.

Cindy Wenger purchased this house in 1972

Why Cindy Wenger chose Drummond

Part of the family property, this cottage became part of our Drummond legacy in 1972. Second generation families raised our children here and then established our Island homes nearby. This has been our home, and we are delighted to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

Right on the water, this cabin has the views, swimming,

sand area for the kids, and serene sunsets all right where

you're staying. Hiking trails are within walking distance, and a children's play cabin is right on the property. The bay in front is shallow, which makes swimming ideal.

Exactly as described!

  • 5 of 5

If you like the pictures and description of this property then you will love it! It is exactly as described. Very clean cabin with a well equipped kitchen and beautiful view. We chartered a fishing boat for a day and then had kayaks delivered to the cabin for a day. It was a nice little island to explore. The IGA had a big selection. There were also cute gift shops. We would gladly stay at this cabin again. Cindy was great to talk to and was very detailed. She is very accommodating and makes you feel right at home.

Third time - Still charming!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned from our third visit to Cedar Sunsets! This cabin offers a wonderful mix of rustic charm and spectacular views. We have never been disappointed, and Cindy and Laura are the perfect hostesses! Both the cabin and Drummond Island are beautiful, remote and simple. It's the best place for us to unwind and recharge, within 5 hours of Grand Rapids. What a place to view the solar eclipse - from our kayaks, floating between islands in the bay! We'll come back as often as we can - highly recommend!

Beautiful spot

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was ideal, very cozy and comfortable with a great westerly view, perfect for sunsets. The amenaties were just right to provide the perfect cottage getaway. We wish we could have seen more scenic areas on the island but they were mostly in private hands and, therefore, off limits.

Awesome stay and facilities!

  • 5 of 5

I want to say the the sunsets and facilities were incredible. I brought my kids to get away from mainstream society and we had a lot of fun. Cindy and Mark were very kind and accommodating, given the chance I will return. Such a neat place! Thanks again for the wonderful hospitality and the perfect setting to build some lifetime memories.....:) D Collins
