We don’t have any additional fees that you have to pay for after you’ve decided to stay with us!


You won’t hear traffic or city noise while staying at Cedarhaus. You will hear the sounds of nature now and then: the sound of a crackling campfire or the waves lapping against the dock might accompany the birds, frogs, the wind or crickets.

Outdoor Playground

The amenities we have to offer, give so much more value than staying in a hotel room. It is true that we do not have an indoor pool, but we do have a lake and and forest to play in. We offer canoeing, swimming, kayaking and paddleboarding on the lake in the warmer months. We also offer beach volleyball and outdoor campfires as options. In the colder months, we offer the chance to x-country ski, skate and snowshoe.

Cosy Cabin-like Accommodations

Our accommodations are anything but generic. You will feel as if you stayed in a cabin deep in the woods with out giving up modern conveniences. The interior is a mix of styles from mid century modern, industrial and rustic. The walls have been decorated with vintage outdoor adventure and sporting equipment. Your space is actually divided up into separate spaces – unlike the hotel layout of everything in one room. Not everyone need go to bed at the same time! Bedrooms are separate from the living and kitchen areas. Decks are located on either side of the guesthouse, depending on your needs for sun or shade, intimate or let’s gather around the picnic table.

Full Breakfast – What You Want & When You Want

We provide breakfast as part of your stay at Cedarhaus. You prepare what you want and eat when you want. Some hotels do include a continental breakfast, but in our experience they are not much to get excited about. For those of you who need to check out early or would like to sleep in, there’s no need to miss out on your breakfast.

B&B or Cottage?

Our place is most similar to a traditional B&B with a couple of exceptions. As mentioned before, we provide breakfast but you prepare it. The other is that we (the hosts) do not share the same living space as the guests.

Our place can also function more like a small 2-bedroom cottage when you rent both of our suites. The shared areas then become exclusively yours. This is a perfect set-up when you are travelling with another couple or family members.
