Fishing is big here, both in the river ( stocked with trout ) and in the bay, where walleye,smallmouth bass,perch,nothern,salmon and brown trout are plentiful.

Excellent stay at Cedar River Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was great. It had all of the amenities and very clean. The kitchen had the essentials we could cook each night and the garage had chairs, grill, bikes and kayaks for your leisure. The road was not busy so you could enjoy the river and sit on the bench. It is 18 miles to Escanaba to get groceries. The beds were very comfortable and the place was well maintained. I would recommend this to anyone. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy.

A great place to spend a relaxing time with man's best friend!

  • 4 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at the cottage, as did our dogs, Sadie and Eddie. The cottage is clean and nicely decorated, comfortable beds and great kitchen/dining space. The privacy of the fire pit area is especially nice as is the dock and bench by the river for contemplating the beauty of nature. The proximity to the state and county park beaches on Lake Michigan is a definite asset. Thanks for sharing the Cottage on Cedar River with us Daniel!

A great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cabin on Memorial Day weekend. The cabin was clean, well stocked, and comfortable. It was quiet, and the view of the river was beautiful. We were were 5 to 10 minutes from swimming, and 30 minutes from both Escanaba and Menominee. Definitely a good stay!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

There isn't much else we can say about the house that hasn't been mentioned in all of their other reviews. Great place, furnished very well, comfortable and clean. We would like to mention that our visit was during January, specifically so we could check out the snowmobile trails. Being that this was the year of El Nino, the snow was quite meager. However, we were still able to ride directly from the house to the closest ATV trails. They are surprisingly quite long and pretty decent through the forested area nearby. The best snowmobiling was a very short trailer ride away on day two. We hauled the sleds to the closest trail head #2 and jumped right onto the groomed trails. Amazing trails once we found them! We would highly recommend stopping at the gas station that is closest to the house and buying a trail map. They are only $4.00, cover all ATV and snow mobile trails and waterproof! It was a fun weekend and we would go back. Thank you Daniel!

Deer Camp

  • 5 of 5

No more ruffing it for deer camp. We had 5 guys and equipment for hunting and the cottage was just like home for 10 days. We didn't get many deer, but deer camp at the cottage made it worth, we already booked for next year!

The Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is delightful and was the perfect escape for me and my husband for a week long getaway to the UP. The description was spot on and we enjoyed the comforts of home including air conditioning, washer and dryer, and dishwasher. At the same time the cabin very much gives the feel of a northern cabin and is very tastefully decorated. We fell in love with several of the unique furnishings. This cabin is very clean and well cared for.

We really enjoyed the river right outside our front door and spent a majority of the week exploring the river via kayak and fishing (The river empties into Lake Michigan). We caught lots of great fish from the river bank and from the kayaks and saw several bald eagles hanging out on the river bank. We also made a day trip to the pictured rocks lake shore which was a beautiful trip. We also enjoyed the fire pit and grill after spending our days on the river.

There was a gas station just a few minutes away for essentials and we were able to get groceries and everything else we needed in Escanaba which was about 30 minute drive. While this was a romantic getaway I would recommend for families. We would love to bring our three teenage boys back for a fishing trip.

Dan was easy to work with and he made great recommendations on things to do during our stay. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away and enjoy all the UP has to offer.
