About Thad Gray

Thad and I reside at Clear Lake and have lived here for nearly 18 years. We both work in West Branch. I graduated from Central Michigan University, and my husband graduated from Michigan State University. We share four grown children. We enjoy boating, fishing and golfing.

Thad Gray purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Thad Gray chose West Branch

Since we are empty nesters, we purchased this lake house to remodel and rent so others can enjoy what we love. The lake area offers so many opportunities for those who like outdoor activities. The lake life is relaxing and allows people to get away from the hustle of life and reconnect with one another. We hope you love it as much as we do!

What makes this cottage unique

The sunrise view in the morning is an amazing way to start your day. Standing on the deck, the lake sparkles, the loons float and dive calling for one another, and the bald eagles soar above watching over the lake. There is always something new to see and something fun to do. This place offers pure relaxation with its cozy feel and peaceful surroundings.

Great Experience...Relaxing Family Fun!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (5 adults and 4 kids) had a great time and experience staying for 5 nights at this home. Owners were very kind and accommodating, plus live nearby. Home has adequate space. Lower level walk-out was a fun space for the kids to play and sleep (sleeping bags). Upper floor had a large deck with an amazing view! Local restaurant (food was a pleasant surprise) and party store are a short walk away. We also rented a pontoon boat that parked easily on their dock. We would highly recommend this home (and Clear Lake) for a nice, relaxing get-away!

Notes:
About Clear Lake: all sports lake - water skiing - excellent fishing (walleye, bass, pike, pan fish) - swimming - 60 feet deep - and very clean. Things To Do: year round hunting - fishing - hiking - snowmobiling - dirt biking - ORVs - some of the best cross country ski trails in Michigan- many top rated golf courses within minutes of Clear Lake - bicycling (hilly roads) - day trip to many casinos - feed the deer at the local game refuge (warm months only) Even though this is an 'away from it all' vacation destination, within walking distance is Clear Lake Grill and Bar. The restaurant hours are 11:30am-2:00 a.m. and offers lunch, dinner, and free wireless Internet. Clear Lake Party Store, right next door, also has a restaurant that offers breakfast and lunch. The store carries many grocery needs, alcohol, movie rentals, and scooped ice-cream cones. Clear Lake Resort offers pontoon rentals. Our rental has a 24' dock.
