Cathy Jackson purchased this cottage in 2010
We love Clear Lake and sharing it with our guests
Very relaxing quiet country residential neighborhood / lake setting, yet close to many area attractions. Close to Garazers (Latvian Center)
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 :)
The owners were always available as they lived across the street and were very nice people. The lake was nice clean. Very swimable. Had a blast in the kayaks and good fishing. The lake was very quiet and private. Definitely coming back.
There were 4 of us total for a weekend stay at Clearview Cottage - a girls weekend. The cottage was neat and tidy and the beds were nice and comfy. We had a wonderful time hanging out in the garage (because of thunderstorms) - but the weather did not dampen our spirits. We did get a chance to check out the lake, which was just a short stroll down the street. It was beautiful. The neighbourhood is nice and quiet. We did have an issue with the water and brought it to the attention of Cathy, but this was not a hindrance - we managed easily by using bottled water to drink and cook with. We also were down to our last roll of toilet paper and Cathy shot over with some more (quite convenient that she lives around the corner). Walmart was a quick 10 minute trip, so if you forget something it's not a big deal to hop in your car. Plus the ride to Walmart was scenic. Overall, it was just lovely.
My family stayed here for the third time and again had a lot of fun. The house is very clean and has everything
we needed to be comfortable. (That includes good water.) Having the kayaks available is very nice. We had a great time using them on the lake, getting some exercise along with some sunshine. There is a collection of maps and brochures with information on nearby activities available. We also discovered a business that provides access for floating the local rivers, which was a lot of fun with the kids. We couldn't have asked for nicer folks than these owners, who were there when we needed them for information and even left us some fresh-baked bread in the oven. Thanks, we'll be back again.
Water in the cottage was absolutely horrible, I have never experienced anything like that before. You couldn't drink it, cook with it or even give it to the dogs. Taking a shower I almost threw up . The smell was horrible. My husband drank a full pot of coffee before he realized the water was bad. He had diarrhea for the next 2 days, we finally left on the third three days early. I hope you fix the water before you rent it to anyone else they shouldn't have to go through what we did. This was the first time we rented a cottage and it will be the last.
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.
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.
Notre Dame Football, Area Wineries, Public Lands nearby for hunting / hiking / biking, mushroom hunting, etc., Very close to Garezers (the Latvian Cultural Center), Shipshewana, Indiana (Amish Country), Antique shops, Historic Downtown Three Rivers, Autumn Color Tours, Ice Fishing, Ice Skating, Underground Railroad site/driving tour, Many area festivals throughout the year.
