Why Cathy Jackson chose Southwest Michigan

We love Clear Lake and sharing it with our guests

What makes this cottage unique

Very relaxing quiet country residential neighborhood / lake setting, yet close to many area attractions. Close to Garazers (Latvian Center)

Hardwick Snowboard Trip

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and clean house!! It had snowed prior to our arrival and the driveway and roads were all plowed. As soon as we walked in we could smell the fresh baked bread which was delicious!! Cottage is close to numerous ski resorts, we visited timber ridge and Swiss valley. Everything you could need is just a short drive away. This was much more enjoyable than a stay in a hotel!! We highly recommend this cottage :)

3 stars

  • 3 of 5

I liked the cottage in general, but I can not give it more than 3 stars.


When we arrived at the cottage there was no phone reception. I looked at the “Welcome” sheet on the table – surprisingly nothing about Wi-Fi. We had to drive several miles to get phone reception and I texted the owner. Instead of giving me the password Cathy said to look on the info sheet on the table. Well, I already looked!

Fortunately she mentioned that password should be on the modem behind TV.

In a day Wi-Fi stopped working, so I had to drive again to text the owner to find out what might be wrong.

- Towels

Worn and stained. I use better towels to dry my dog. We drove to Walmart and bought new ones.

Pictures can mislead you that the cottage is on the lake. It is not. There is a small area with public access that you can use to launch your boat and such.

Excellent getaway! We spent 4 days/5 nights at the cottage, and had no complaints. We would definitely visit again.

We all had a solid experience while renting this house out for the weekend. It was easy to find, clean, and a perfect little house for the weekend. For the listed price this is an awesome home to rent. Also the couple who owns the property are very nice people! I would recommend staying here.

Lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is in a lovely setting and not far from the ski resort. Thanks for being flexible when we needed to reschedule the trip.

Couldn't Have Asked for a Better Experience!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend to anyone that will be traveling to this area.

This was my first time using a service like this, and it blew away my expectations! The owners were very easy to communicate with and were very accommodating with letting us check in earlier than usual (this was mostly thanks to nobody staying at the cottage the night before). They also had sold us 2 lift tickets for a much cheaper cost than the ski resort sells them for. Also, had a great day at the ski resort.

The house was very nice and clean. They had a document laying out how to properly clean the house and make sure it is as we left it. This was very helpful and I believe also allowed me to get our full deposit back!
