Beautiful Lake frontage with 200 feet on sandy Clear Lake - aka, Goldilocks
average rating of 5.0 based on 10 reviews


  • 5 of 5

What an awesome way to experience Clear Lake! "Goldilocks" was more than we had expected. The house had everything needed for a wonderful vacation. Our family has been going to Clear Lake State Park for 10 years in a row. We got smart this year and decided to venture out of the camping mode and rent Marc's home. The accommodations were perfect for the 8 adults and 2 babies. The views of the lake, the crystal clear water, the extra amenities in the house and the helpful neighbor were just a few of the reasons we will be returning next year! We highly recommend this property!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Goldilocks cabin for New Year's Eve. The lake is gorgeous, there's a path that goes to a campground in one direction, and a day use area and boat launch in the other direction, and the cabin itself is beautiful (the pics really don't do it justice). Perhaps most importantly, Marc was a great host who went out of his way to make sure we were well prepared for our stay.

Beautiful private setting on Clear Lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our extended family. The deck overlooking Clear Lake was the perfect spot for meals with two tables and plenty of seating. The campfire area was another great hangout area with lots of chairs.

Goldilocks on Clear Lake

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and the owner was very helpful. The view from of Clear Lake is fantastic with hiking trails right out of the back door. We had a nice relaxing weekend and wish we could have stayed a few more days.

We had a fabulous long weekend at the Goldilocks property. The house is great and very roomy, a couple of very nice large TVs, tons of movies on DVD (which you won't need unless the weather doesn't cooperate!), lots of seating on the main floor and downstairs, and the kitchen is stocked well too. Our stay at the house was too short but we spent an entire day floating and swimming on the lake, Clear Lake is just spectacular. The deck and the fire pit area are great and they both were well used after a day in the lake. Having use of the garage was nice as well. We are already planning a return trip for next year. To date, we have stayed at 3 out of 4 of Marc's cabins and we know we are always in good hands!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review Kim! As a repeat renter you know that each house and lake are different (3 on Crooked Land and 1 on Clear Lake). Clear Lake is special because of those sandy, deep blue, waters. Crooked Lake is a no-wake fishing lake and all of the houses are high on hills. All of the properties offer great views, lots of privacy, and their own docks and fire pits. Papa Bear is my favorite house, but it's my personal house, so of course I'm bias. All of the houses are "AAA" and I'm always improving them, e.g., Baby Bear has a new green metal roof with added skylights. My wife's parents enjoy Baby Bear with it's deck which is like staying in a "tree house", and of course Mama Bear is a true up north cabin with all of the modern features. Thanks again for your review and I look forward to having you back again. Marc Edwards

Super lake vacation destination

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to relax and unwind on one of the prettiest lakes to be found in Northern Michigan. The waters of Clear Lake are just that - crystal clear - and the kids and our labrador spent hours swimming in the lake. We spent much of our time just relaxing enjoying the beautiful lake views from the outdoor deck and lakefront yard and evenings around the fire pit watching the moon rise over the trees. We utilized the pontoon provided to cruise the lake and spend some time out on the water as well. We managed to get a round of golf in at nearby Elk Ridge (beautiful course) and a day trip up to Mackinaw Island was easly accomplished. The cottage was clean and well maintained. Marc responded quickly to all email questions and provided good communication as the vacation drew near. Neighbor Jim next door was super-friendly and an excellent host and a great resource for those unfamiliar with the area. We have spent many summers vacationing on lakes and would definitely recommend this property to a friend looking for a beautiful vacation spot to take the family.

Owner's Response: Steve, thanks for the kind words and detailed description. Yes, Clear Lake is really special and given that it so sandy it's perfect for any four legged friends! Being next to the state park dosen't hurt either! Thanks, Marc
