Gorgeous waterfront home on Clear Lake offers 3 Bedrooms and 2 full baths (Jacuzzi tub for two), a huge deck overlooking the lake, fireplace, two-car garage, gas barbecue grill, fire pit, wireless internet, and all the conveniences of home. We have a dock out front so bring your boat or jet ski.
Clear Lake is a 200 acre all-sports lake which as its name suggests, is crystal clear. The lake is up to 50' deep, has 3 islands, boat rentals, and a sandy beach. It is great for fishing, swimming, sailing, water skiing, as well as ice skating in the winter.
Clear Lake is a small, friendly community. The property is within walking distance to two restaurants/bar and a convenience store. Also within a few miles are championship golf courses, hunting, 100's of miles of manicured snowmobile and ATV trails, wonderful cross-country skiing, and horseback riding.
Available within a short drive is canoeing/kayaking on the Rifle River or AuSable River. In the picturesque town of West Branch you will find fine dining, a cinema, antique stores, outlet mall shopping and much more!
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.

My idea of the perfect, cozy, rustic cottage on a lake in Michigan. Met up with family members that are now spread across the country and we all had a great time. The cabin had plenty of room and the big front deck facing the water offered a beautiful view. We played many games on the spacious front lawn, roasted marshmallows in the fire pit, and took many cruises around the gorgeous lake dotted with tiny islands. It felt like going back home again, eating perch dinners, playing cards & board games, with the setting that made us feel so comfortable and....relaxed. We'll be back!
Being from California, I had never really seen fall color, so we decided upon Michigan this year to have a real "autumn" experience. We spent several nights at this lovely cottage on Clear Lake. Because of the time of year, it was quiet and tranquil and the view across the water was gorgeous. The autumn weather was lovely and the leaves were vibrant. It was warm enough during the day to go out and walk in the woods, and kayak and paddle board, but cool enough in the evening to snuggle by the fire place (which works and warms great). I don't think the photos of the cabin really fairly show how close you are to the edge of the lake; you can hear the water lapping against the shore. The cottage is a wee bit dated, but I found that entirely charming and warm. The owner has recently added WiFi service, so that is not longer an inconvenience. And the food at the local bar is pretty dang good. Highly recommend a stay here on Clear Lake.
We had a great week on Clear Lake. Lots of room at a beautiful location. The renters were very helpful and very nice. I would recommend this place to anyone.
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.
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.
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.
