Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We love Clear Lake! The Surf Ballroom is what brought us to the town. We came for a concert and fell in love with the area. Our kids love to come to Clear Lake for all the family fun activities.

Why the Owner Chose Clear Lake:
We chose to buy a vacation/rental home in this location because, it is walking distance to the Surf, restaurants, city park, beach, Lady of the Lake, shops and the list goes on. A typical summer day includes~ packing a lunch, biking down to the beach, swimming, playing at the park, getting a cookie at Cookies etc. OR buying an ice cream treat from the ice cream truck (complete w/bell and all),bumming around the shops and biking back...great day!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Off season there's still plenty to do...stay in the cozy cottage, play games, watch a movie, go to the Lakes theatre, head to Mason City for some shopping or visit the museums. There's numerous events going on in town monthly, Christmas on the Lake, Kites in Feb., Buddy Holly winter festival at the Surf Ballroom, 4th of July celebration etc. Every time we are in Clear Lake we're never ready to leave!
