Guestbook comments from the owner

This house is INCREDIBLE! We were a group of 8 who only had a short time to stay, but we all agreed that we would have booked for much longer if we could have. Definitely on our list to return to. The house is gorgeous. I loved the wood building, open space inside, warm fireplace beside the floor-to-ceiling windows, and all of the little things that made the house like a home away from home. We all really appreciated the extras Lauren provided (beautiful soaps, fully equipped kitchen, etc.) so we all felt like we were hanging at someone's (really amazing) country house. We explored the property's private woods and made it to the lake, which was also a highlight. This is definitely a property I would return to. It felt like a dream home and I want to bring more of my friends back here. Thank you, Lauren, for being so accommodating, easy to communicate with, and for allowing us to spend time in your precious home. Hope to be back soon!

amazing house and location

  • 5 of 5

This house was really stunning. It was bigger than expected (not usually the case on sites like this), very clean, and in a great location! We were there in the middle of a snowstorm and felt super comfortable the whole time. Also, the house is minutes away from the Arnold House which is a great little spa and restaurant/bar.

Truly feels like home and comfortable. We would be up there every other weekend if we could.

  • 5 of 5

Second time at the cabin and truly love it there...stayed there with my wife and 3 children along with my in laws and nephew and it feels like home. The Clearwater cabin team are so easy to work with and made our stay so easy when we arrived and when we left. The cabin is perfectly arranged and well kept. The kids had so much fun with the foosball table and Nintendo wii and the adults loved playing ping pong and relaxing looking out at the views from the windows. We will definitely be back in the near future and thank you to Lauren and the rest of her team for making our stay a memorable one.

Long weekend with friends

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at Clearwater Cabin! The house was very clean and uncluttered, the kitchen well appointed and the bedding soft and cozy. The property is private and quiet and we enjoyed walking down to the beautiful lake and exploring the woods nearby.

We had a few minor issues that Lauren, the house manager and Alan, the caretaker responded to quickly. We were disappointed that the game room was in the middle of being re-done and our biggest suggestion is to replace the box TV in that room.

Overall a very nice stay!

When was the last time you saw STARS!?

  • 5 of 5

An amazing time at this house. Very cozy, with a tucked away feel. Lake was to cold to swim but we hung out by the bonfire pit. The stars at night from the back porch were killer. Book it!
