History

“U"nique and “P"ristine 

Island View Resort is located on Cedarville Bay in the heart of the Beautiful Les Cheneaux Islands.  We are located just 1 mile east of the village of Cedarville.  We have 400 feet of Southern exposure to the bay, providing for that much wanted mid day sunshine and many sunrises and sunsets.
As owners and managers we are always stressing the modernization and upgrading of our facilities while keeping the rates reasonable.  We provide a discount rate for peak season as well as off season.
