                                                                A Beautiful Cabin... but, Needs Updated Description.

                                                                Stephen V.

                                                                The cabin is nice. Beautiful wood finishes. Tasteful decorating. Ample space for entertaining. The fireplace is wonderful. Beds are comfy. The problem, though, is that the description is misleading/outdated and many updates/much attention needs to be placed on certain things. For the price, I was quite disappointed with the below:

                                                                • Overall: The cabin is nice but it doesn't seem like the owners even want it rented. There are notes everywhere to "not use" this or to "remember to shut" this off or "don't use counters for cutting." Even things like the butcher block counters, were asked to not be cut on... and there were minimal cutting boards to use in place of them. It was off-putting and felt like we weren't trusted guests during our stay.

                                                                • Bathrooms: The water pressure is quite low, in fact. In addition, the bathroom by the twin beds had a clogged drain and stained basin. It took nearly 6 hours to fully drain which was not pleasant with 8 guests.

                                                                • Entertainment: Outdated or unusable. The surround sound wasn't hooked up / working properly, Netflix / Roku is inoperable (a group of 8 people well-versed in tech, couldn't get it to work), and cable is limited to basic. We had to plug our personal laptop into the HDMI to watch movies at night.

                                                                • Privacy: The photos and description are misleading. When you pull up you see houses all around you. It is located in a sub-division of homes/rentals. You are within eye and earshot of multiple homes when in the backyard. The pool is, however, fenced off but because of this you unfortunately feel boxed in. This property, overall, is far less "PRIVATE" than described.

                                                                • Communication: Our host was great communicating up to the rental was paid for and access code sent, but when we reached out to inquire about extending checkout (well over 24 hours in advance) she went radio silent. Note, we offered to pay for the extra time too, as we weren't expecting a free late checkout.

                                                                • Check-In / Check-Out: Check in is at 4PM and Check out is 10AM. For a cabin specializing in large parties this is unusual / rushed. Even 3PM check in + 11am check out would be better.

                                                                • Transportation: Note expect to stay at the cabin. If you want to go anywhere, there are minimal transportation options. For context, it was $14/person, round trip, to Four Winds Casino. That's the cheapest we found. For a group of 8 it was over $120 (with tip), to go to the closest casino.

                                                                Simply awesome!

                                                                Booked the cottage with college friends to use as our base as we went back and forth to ND and ND games. Wish we could have just stayed here because it really felt like home away from home. The cottage was very well kept and had enough amenities for us to use with ease. Thank you to Pam, the owner, who was so accommodating and made our stay easy. We will definitely go back next year.

                                                                Awesome weekend.

                                                                Great house!

                                                                It was perfect for a group of 8. Great pool, close to the beach and Pam was a helpful host.

                                                                Absolutely spectacular vacation at Cedar Lodge!!

                                                                Pam R.-

                                                                We absolutely loved our stay at this exquisite vacation house, everything was perfect! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!

                                                                Quiet cabin in the woods but lots to do

                                                                Steve A.

                                                                Great quiet scenic location on a private wooded lot. Easily accommodated our party of 8. Very close, walking distance, to a clean private beach with beach chairs provided. Also spent hours in the heated pool at the cabin. This is close to fine dining, or if you prefer, burgers, pizza or bar food. Cabin was clean with everything provided for cooking etc. with a nice outdoor grill. Mattresses should be updated in our opinion, but that can be a personal thing. The place is expensive but you get what you pay for. We felt it was a good value. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

                                                                Pool, beach, screen porch what more do you need for a great vacation with lots to do close by.
