About Emily Pangborn

I grew up in West Michigan, live & work in Southeast Michigan, my Cabin is located in "Up North Michigan."

Emily Pangborn purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Emily Pangborn chose Honor

Lake front cabin with a dock, boat and a beach on a beautiful quiet lake. I couldn't resist it's charm.

What makes this cabin unique

I'm always improving something at the cabins. Hired a new cleaning crew and property manager and they are utterly fantastic.

Going to bed listening to the trees and the lake is awesome. Waking up to the sounds of nature on the lake is incredible. Watching the chipmunks zip back and forth is entertaining.

Don't want to cook? Walk up the stairs and down the driveway to the Manitou for early dinner at 4:30pm, order the prime rib on Saturday night with a few ales. It hits the spot, head back and start a campfire and unwind.

Sweet little cabin on a lake. Enjoyed the views and location near Sleeping Bear Dunes. Great trails, quaint towns and beautiful scenic overlooks.

A vacation which never fails to refresh the spirit!

  • 5 of 5

The property and cottage are clean and well-maintained. Fresh towels and bedding were provided. A property representative was always available to assist if there were any issues/concerns or needs. The beach was clean and groomed. Kayaks and rowboats were available for use. It was quiet and serene during our stay.

We have been renting the cottage for many years now and this has become a much- anticipated and joyful annual tradition.

Clean & well cared for.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location. Peaceful & private. Enjoyed the kayaks provided, only wish there were more paddles to allow all of us to kayak (only 3 paddles but 5 boats). Wi-Fi would be nice but it was nice for the kids to be off devices. Really enjoyed our stay, thank you.

Great stay again!

  • 4 of 5

I have been going to Cedar Landing for 18 years. Every year since this cottage was sold to the current owner, improvements have been made to the cottage, the grounds, and the amenities. There a some things that are limited, such as cookware and glass ware, but we have learned to adjust by taking what we will need. We'll be back.

We loved this little place on the lake!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here right on the lake in cabin #5. The lake was clear and shallow with a sandy bottom -perfect for our four and five year old. The cabin was tiny but not cramped:) I wouldn't have minded a little more privacy, but everyone was super friendly. There are a lot of stairs, but the beach is great and the cabin was clean! We really enjoyed our stay!

We loved staying here! Our kids loved swimming and kayaking in the quiet lake, the view was beautiful, and the cabin was clean and comfortable. We plan to go back.
