Cedar Ridge is unequaled for privacy, serenity and a magical setting.
The Main HomeThe one-level Lindal cedar home features 10-foot vaulted wood-beamed ceilings and quality construction with attention to detail.

An oversized gravel driveway has plenty of space for additional parking and the cottage has its own address and mailbox.
