West Branch cottage description

Gorgeous waterfront home on Clear Lake offers 3 Bedrooms and 2 full baths (Jacuzzi tub for two), a huge deck overlooking the lake, fireplace, two-car garage, gas barbecue grill, fire pit, and all the conveniences of home. We have a dock out front so bring your boat or jet ski.

Clear Lake is a 200 acre all-sports lake which as its name suggests, is crystal clear. The lake is up to 50' deep, has 3 islands, boat rentals, and a sandy beach. It is great for fishing, swimming, sailing, water skiing, as well as ice skating in the winter.

Clear Lake is a small, friendly community. The property is within walking distance to two restaurants/bar and a convenience store. Also within a few miles are championship golf courses, hunting, 100's of miles of manicured snowmobile and ATV trails, wonderful cross-country skiing, and horseback riding.

Available within a short drive is canoeing/kayaking on the Rifle River or AuSable River. In the picturesque town of West Branch you will find fine dining, a cinema, antique stores, outlet mall shopping and much more!

                          About: I grew up in Bay City, Michigan and spent my summers at the lake swimming, fishing, waterskiing and well, living the good life. My father eventually moved to the cottage on Clear Lake and it became our family home for many years. Now it is a vacation home and still one of my favorite places on earth. I live in Los Angeles where I work as a director in film and television, but each year I find time to return to my idyllic cottage on Clear Lake. I hope you enjoy it, too.
