We rented this cabin from July 26-Aug 2, 2015 for our young family. We have 2 children and a baby. It was perfect! We were within walking distance of everything even for our 4 and 6 year old on foot!
The cabin was very comfortable and was completely furnished, nothing was left unnoticed. Fully stocked kitchen, laundry, bathroom and bedroom. The laundry room was a wonderful feature as we were able to dry our beach towels daily and not return home with a pile of dirty laundry.
The bedrooms were a comfortable size and the beds were very comfortable. The linens were freshly cleaned and ready for us upon our arrival. Lots of cupboards and closet space to put everything away.
The living space was fantastic, an extra futon for sitting/sleeping and a very comfortable sectional fit all of us for our cuddly movie nights. The cabin had a cable tv (channels were limited) however with wifi capability we were able to connect an iPad a watch Netflix. Cabin also came with a DVD player and several movie options in a variety of genres.
The backyard and deck space are a nice addition. Being that they are mostly shaded is was a nice touch after a hot day at the beach. We were able to entertain family during our visit and have a nice BBQ.
We loved staying at Cedar Park Cottage! It was such a beautiful little cottage and we all remarked on how we'd love to own a place just like it one day. The owner is very friendly and super nice, even when we couldn't meet on time due to travelling delays!
- Close to the water, although it was too cold to go swimming (2-9 degrees in June, so watch out for weather reports).
- Perfectly clean, lovely decor, and comfortable bedrooms. Due to the weather it did get very cold inside at night, but extra blankets and turning up the thermostat worked fine. There is also a beautiful wood burning stove to help with that!
- Board games and books for a night in, if you desire! But bring your own dice, as we couldn't seem to find any. There is also included wifi!
- In June there are these weird swarms of bugs (fish flies?) that cover EVERYTHING and coat the entire outdoor area, making the pit and deck a bit unusable if you don't want to be swallowing insects. We were picking them out of our bags on the entire trip home! We are more indoor folk anyway, but if you wanted to use the outdoor areas, it's something to consider.
Would definitely recommend and stay there again!

Tammie was friendly and welcoming, the cottage was clean and comfortable and we quickly made ourselves at home. What a relaxing week! BBQ's on the deck, one block walk to the park and lake and a short walk for great icecream made this an ideal spot for a family vacation. Lots to do at the beach and around (mini golf, Sylvan Lake cruise), great area for biking (and there are two bikes available at the cottage), and puzzles, movies and cable tv for the one rainy day. We will definitely stay here when we come back to Sylvan Lake.
