                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About: Having grown up in Iowa and knowing that I wanted to 'come home', I was looking for a lake community that would have a robust, active, yet small-town atmosphere. I found it in Clear Lake. This town features many events and concerts throughout the year. There is a beautiful downtown center with a pretty beach and sea wall walk. A City art museum added to its charm. For those of us who love flowers the City garden park is spectacular.

                  Why Clear Lake:
                  Our cottage feels cozy to us, is close to the lake and the seawall walking path and is in a great location to participate in all the activities Clear Lake has to offer. Remember walking to the town square or green and buying an ice cream cone? Remember needing a quick item from the grocery or drug store--well, you don't have to get in the car and drive, it's all within walking distance. City Park is very close and is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy all the city center has to offer..

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Off season, The Cottage and Clear Lake both offer warmth and inspiration while enjoying the Winter Party week at the Surf Ballroom honoring Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper and Ritchie Valens. Or come for the large, colorful winter kite festival and the ice fishing on the lake. There is fishing year round. The Christmas events with parade and fireworks are truly fun. Of course, there is no better time than Clear Lake on the 4th of July with its massive fireworks display.
