Lake Michigan, Bike Path, Restaurants, and Shopping All At Your Fingertips!
Perfectly placed on an oversized in town Petoskey lot with plenty of privacy, the Cedar House is a great getaway for backyard BBQs, bonfires, and enjoying vacation like a local! If biking is your thing, then once you arrive you can ditch your vehicle and jump on the Little Traverse Wheelway (bike path) that extends from Charlevoix all around Little Traverse Bay over to Harbor Springs (bikes & helmets provided with a signed waiver). The Petoskey State Park (beach access) is also just minutes down the bike path or it's a one block walk to catch the beautiful Lake Michigan sunsets. Head the opposite direction on the bike path and pop into downtown Petoskey for lunch and shopping. Want to walk to grab a cold beer? A local favorite, Ron's Bar & Backyard, is right next door and complete with a jukebox and shuffleboard table. This location doesnt get any better!

This adorable 4 bedroom, 2 bath cottage is freshly updated and ready to provide a relaxing vacation with its clean presentation and simple decor. Enter through the front door into a cozy living area which is great for watching TV, playing games, or enjoying drinks. The large dining room table is also a great place to gather around for meals or puzzles. Do not miss the cute coffee nook to grab your morning cup of energy. The kitchen appliances are all brand new as well! The main level also offers two cute bedrooms and one fully updated bathroom. Upon taking the steps upstairs onto the beautifully refurbished wood floors, you will find two more bedrooms and another updated bathroom. The spacious primary-like bedroom offers a king bed, modern bedside lighting and small desk area. Walk down the hall to the second bedroom with bunk beds - great for kids, but could also be suitable for adults as the bunks are full-size beds. The bathroom, which sits between the two bedrooms, is designed with clean, white tile and modern brass fixtures. This charming cottage is in the middle of the action, yet with an abundance of privacy!

We had 5 women from our family staying at Cedar House as a launch point for exploring the area. It was clean, comfortable, and had plenty of room with its 4 bedrooms. We enjoyed lounging in the living room. Everything we needed was right where we expected it. The property is a couple miles outside of downtown and close proximity to the bay (we thought it would have a direct view of the lake and be closer into town, but that&#x2019;s probably our fault for not reading carefully). Also I&#x2019;m sure that&#x2019;s why the house felt so reasonably priced. Although the house is directly adjacent to a bar, we felt safe. The bike supply is AWESOME. The bikes seem brand new and there are plenty of them in a variety of sizes. Vacation Properties of Northern Michigan was proactive and responsive in their communication. They helped us get the battery changed in the door lock very quickly when it died and let us know when the property was ready early on the day of our arrival. Very professional and kind.<br/><br/>Northern Michigan is a delight - we are all from other parts of the country so we loved the fall colors, countryside and coastline. An easy, beautiful drive got us to Mackinaw City where we were able to take the ferry to Mackinac Isla nd for a day trip. We returned along the Tunnel of Trees. We also explored downtown Petoskey - our favorite shop we the American Spoon, and it was fun to see the Kilwins factory store. In Charlevoix we saw the mushroom houses designed by Earl Young. Our group&#x2019;s favorite outing was the Lavender Hill Farm. The staff are so knowledgeable, the property was gorgeous even off season and the products were lovely. <br/>

If this house went up for sale, I'd buy it tomorrow. It was thoughtfully and stylishly provisioned, impeccably clean, and perfectly located for our trip.<br/><br/>First, the inside. The furniture was comfy, including the beds, and the bathrooms and kitchen were wonderfully provisioned with quality linens and cooking gear. (Next time, I'll arrive with foil, parchment, and a sauce pan, but that's about it!) The fun, stylish decor made things feel special.<br/><br/>Outisde, an enormous fenced yard and cedar trees provided much privacy and quiet. (We did have a bit of noise on the weekend from the bar patio nearby, but we were outside partying, too!)<br/><br/>The fire pit, 2 picnic tables and *bikes!* meant everything we wanted was there.<br/><br/>The sleeper component of this property is its close proximity to a small public beach with amazinggggg sunset views and Petoskey stones galore! (IYKYK) Also, it's on the bike path that rims the bay and very close to the Victorian cottage district of Bay View.<br/><br/>It's closer to Petoskey, but also an easy jaunt to Harbor Springs and beyond. <br/><br/>GREAT communication and customer service when we had questions. WE WILL BE BACK.

Cleanest VRBO we have ever stayed at! The traditional layout was quite nice and worked perfectly for our family. They had everything we could need including gates for the stairs. This was so wonderful to not have to pack big items like gates and a pack n play on a plane. We loved the decor and the close proximity to the lake and town. We had quite a treat from the apple tree in the yard!

We had a great stay at this cozy home, situated between two areas we enjoy skiing. It was the perfect place to crash for the evening after a long days on the hills, enjoy some great food and play some games. The hot water was wonderful and endless, towels were thick and absorbent, traditional and cup coffee makers were provided, basic seasonings and coffee filters as well, and the beds and bedrooms were all wonderfully comfortable. If this owner has the chance to include a ladle and a larger soup-style pot those would be our only tiny recommendations.

We really enjoyed this vacation rental for our family of six. kitchen functioned well for simple meals and space for playing games, relaxing, etc. Bike shed worked great for our own bikes as well as the bikes provided. Excellent beds, lots of high quality towels, etc., great access to wheelway, nearby groceries. Only a few small negatives--loud music on weekend nights, weird door on king bedroom,
