Girls' Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Rented for a 40th birthday/girls' weekend, Cedar Lodge turned out to be perfect. Easy to locate and a quick trip from Chicago. The rustic interior decoration, fireplace and outdoor fire pit made for a cozy fall weekend. The bedrooms, bathrooms and dining area were just right for six adults. We spent very little time away from the house and found the provided kitchen appliances and utensils met our needs for cooking lovely meals. A wonderful time was had by all!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the most perfect women's retreat ever at Cedar Lodge! Being a bunch of older women who like to chat, cook and eat, the layout was great: some could be making gourmet meals in the kitchen while chatting with others sitting at the table or living room. There was plenty of space around the large dining table for us all to eat together, and more than enough high-quality dishes and cutlery for everyone. The water pressure was great in both showers (always important) and all of the beds - even the bunk beds - had high quality comfortable mattresses and bedding (even more important!). The hot tub was large and easy to use (no climbing over high sides) and the pool area looked great. The back yard was lovely, with a well-appointed fire pit with plenty of comfortable seating.

I highly recommend this place to anyone, and am hoping to rent it for a family vacation next summer.

Wonderful place,wonderful weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I took our three adult sons and two of their significant others to Cedar Lodge for a 3-night weekend. We could not have been more delighted! The cabin is nestled in the woods and absolutely lovely, built and decorated in the Adirondack style promised in the description, but with modern appliances and bathrooms to make everything that much more comfortable. (Everything was also extremely clean and well maintained.) The hot tub was wonderful, and the large firepit in back made for a great place to sit in the evenings. And the small private beach was a short walk away, in the middle of the dunes, and offers great sunset views.

So thank you to Pam, who was gracious, accommodating, and quick to reply to our texted questions. This place was definitely a winner!

Homey luxury at Cedar Lodge

  • 4 of 5

Really great for our large group of 9. Like staying in one of homes, but with extra luxury. Not thrilled at the 10 am check out, however, and the list of everything we had to do the morning that we left. Knowing that we had to get up so early and clean was a bummer. That's why it was "good" and not "excellent".

Glorious Vacation at Cedar Lodge!!

  • 5 of 5

- location was perfect, lest than 2 hours from our home in Northwest Suburbs of Chicago.

- beautiful home, I can't say it was a cabin because it was way more than that. Plenty of room for our party of 10. We never felt cramped. There was enough room and space on this property to have some quiet time. Great open floor plan so you can cook and still visit with the other guests.

- the home came equipped with everything that you needed for a wonderful stay.

- pool was fabulous, we were in it every day. Perfect temperature. Loved, loved it.

- great fire pit for evening campfires. Beautiful front porch to just hang out.

- nice screened in porch area right off the pool. We would have coffee in the morning out there.

- quick trip to grocery store and downtown New Buffalo for shopping.

- great restaurants very close to property if you didn't want to cook in the well equipped kitchen.

- easy walk to the beach. It is quiet and private. You can also take a quick drive to the public beach in New Buffalo.

Overall it was a glorious vacation. I would highly recommend Cedar Lodge. Book it early it fills up fast.

Nice home, beautiful Lake Michigan beach.....

  • 3 of 5

Perfect weather and a beautiful, sandy beach are what made are family getaway so special and full of precious memories. Cedar Lodge was fine, but we felt the maintenance and cleanliness could have been better. The tub in one if the bathrooms did not drain, both propane tanks at a grease laden grill were empty, light bulbs needing replacement, pool cloudy, overgrown landscape....I'm sure at one time this house was beautiful but definitely in need of a thorough cleaning and maintenance. We were disappointed the hot tub was not available. The long list of do's and don'ts that you receive after booking speaks to the low level of maintenance. The owner did respond to a few of our comcerns within a few days.

Owner's Response: Our heated pool is open during the summer and the hot tub opens immediately it closes (as advertised). Our hot tub hasn't been open during the summer for many, many years. Ever since renters had sand on them from the beach...which completely destroyed the motor! If you'd read info on my site and the letters I sent to you, you'd have known it wasn't open. The night you arrived you emailed me asking if you should fill the hot tub!? As you know, I contacted you immediately asking you not to. After that, you contacted me complaining that there weren't hot pads and that a garbage can had a crack on the bottom. Early the next morning my Manager ran out and bought replacements and brought them to you right after that. When he was there he checked and found the hot pads on top of the dryer! I contacted you after that to see if everything was OK, and I never heard from you. It's terribly sad that you slammed our beautiful home with untruths just because you expected something that wasn't available in the first place! We are VERY proud of Cedar Lodge and work diligently to make it a special experience for all of our guests. Unfortunately, there are always people out there that feel the need to ruin it for others.
