We just had a relaxing weekend getaway to Clear Lake at the Mallard Cottage #1. The unit was clean and well appointed, and the grounds of the resort were inviting for our early fall stay, with secure parking. We would have liked to go kayaking but the lower water level due to the drought made it impractical. Under other conditions, the location and the private dock make activities on the water convenient and ideal. Sizewise, for two adults the cottage is fine; for four it would be doable but tight.
There was a problem with the fill valve of the toilet not working properly after each flush, but we were able to get it to work by turning the water on and off from the stop valve. Still, we were told by the caretakers at the end of our stay that this has been a problem for several weeks, but hasn't yet been fixed. This is an easy fix and should be taken care of immediately.
The listing says that linens are included but we were told they would be an extra fee, so we brought our own. The listing should be updated to reflect this reality.
