About The Owner

I grew up in Bay City, Michigan and spent my summers at the lake swimming, fishing, waterskiing and well, living the good life. My father eventually moved to the cottage on Clear Lake and it became our family home for many years. Now it is a vacation home and still one of my favorite places on earth. I live in Los Angeles where I work as a director in film and television, but each year I find time to return to my idyllic cottage on Clear Lake. I hope you enjoy it, too.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5
We had a very nice stay. The cottage was very clean when we arrived and the weather for our week's stay was perfect. Randy and Jackie were very nice and made us feel very much at home. We enjoyed the fire pit almost every night, roasting and toasting our marshmallows for s'mores, hot dogs, and such. Our 8 yr. old black lab loved the water and we even got her to jump off the dock! A great time was had by all.

First full family vacation

  • 4 of 5
Plenty of room for 4 adults, 2 grandchildren and one small dog. More of a home then a cottege. Perfect for little ones to go swimming. Nice yard and neighbors. Weekends are more noisy then during the week, but not more than expected. Cottege is shaded, plenty of windows and fans which helps with no air conditioning. Care takers are very nice. Boat rental is high from a separate location on lake. I woulndn't walk to restaurant but I would recommend it.

Great location, good cottage; overall had a great time

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time with the whole family to Clear Lake (and this cottage). We really enjoyed our stay and the property managers are very friendly and accommodating. The place was clean and nicely set up when we arrived. There's even a grill up there for renters to use.

The cottage itself has a good deal of charm (sort of how you picture an "up north" cottage). The view from the rear deck is amazing and the deck itself is quite large... we spent alot of time out there. The cottage is a little dated and could use a little updating, but that's part of the charm.

We loved the location. The cottage is right on the water and has a nice yard for the kids to play in (and it's fun roasting marshmallows in the fire pit).

Overall, we had a great stay and will likely be returning next year.

Very Nice Lake House

  • 4 of 5
House is a bit dated but the location more than makes up for it. Property managers live very close and are wonderful people. Pre-trip communication was great. The house itself is very well-equipped. Ony had two complaints. One was that the hot water seemed to be hit or miss. The other was that there is no Internet, wifi, or cell service. However, these were minor inconveniences. We loved sitting around the fire pit and roasting marshmallows. Also, the deck is great in the morning. Beautiful place to have your morning coffee. Overall, we loved our stay.
