"My Film Crew of Actors, Models along with some family recently stayed at this location. It was a little hard to find the first night, but one of the Women who helped take care of it along with her husband came to find all of us.
This is a very nice place, but be prepared that it is a little off the beaten path. Of course that worked for our needs. Only issue we had really had nothing to do with the niceness of the Lodge itself, but cell phone and WI-FI are out of the question for the most part.
Only one out of our six cell phones worked, but we were told that might happen so no big surprise there.
Just remember this is a fairly remote location even thought there are some neighbors nearby. Overall we loved the place and would recommend it for a great getaway modern civilization."

Just wanted to let you know that we had a fabulous time! Your lake house was perfect! Beautiful, very comfortable and stocked with everything we could need. Great location too …. Our kiddos were able to go back and forth to their cousin’s house and to the beach with no problem. The week went by way too fast though, so I’m thinking that a two week stay is in order for next year!
Thank you for everything! We really enjoyed our stay! :)

Stunning views, clean, beautiful home, can't wait to return!
"Our trip to Clear Lake was unforgettable! The views are unbelievable, the water clear and inviting, and the home very beautiful and comfortable. I will never forget the fun we had playing Nutzy on the beach with Great Aunt Lewellen while the kids played in the water!! We used the variety of inflatables and rafts and spent many hours playing in the perfect lake. This is a place where memories are made. We will definitely return again."

Great for large group - lots of beds & HUGE grounds to roam
"We had barn house & farmhouse. Since we mostly had adults in the farmhouse, it was always quiet there. The farmhouse has all window air conditioners (that only worked so-so) & ceiling fans. The barnhouse has the kitchen & all the living and eating areas plus full bathrooms on the main floor & upstairs. The vast majority of the barnhouse is rough-hewn wooden beams which makes it virtually indestructible. Compared to other rentals where I worry the kids might damage something, the barnhouse was great for the kids to play and run with no worries. There was 1 queen bed in the laundry room behind the kitchen on the main floor. Upstairs were 3 private bedrooms (2 with queen beds and 1 with a queen and a twin). There was also a big dormitory-style bunk room with 8 bunks that worked well for filling up with kids. The upstairs also has lots of tables & seating. Mostly the kids used it for playing board & card games or sitting on the sofas to watch TV. There was also a long bar where we sat & talked one evening. Plus there was an area with a very long table & chairs. We didn’t eat there but did move them out to make a big open space for our square dance. Elk Ridge Ranch is quite isolated from neighbors which made it nice so we could be as noisy as we wanted and not worry that we were bothering anyone. Also it was comforting to know the kids could run all around and there were no busy streets or hazards like a swimming pool. There is no place for bigger kids to ride bikes or skooters since all the driving surfaces are gravel - though small kids can ride trikes on the sidewalk. The wifi doesn’t always work; comes and goes. Adults enjoyed walking over to golf & to fish on the grounds. We also had a lot of fun sitting on the wooden benches around bonfires in a giant wire basket. We paid Dave, the owner, to take all of us on a hay ride. It was fun & he let the kids take turns helping him drive the tractor. They loved that. Our group also enjoyed going to the pioneer village at Spring Mill State Park, Holiday World Amusement & Water Park, deluxe golfing at Sultan’s Run, the French Lick casino, and swimming at a beach at Patoka Lake. We were lucky the big Stassenfest Festival was going on in Jasper when we were there. There were more things in the area that we wanted to do but ran out of time so will have to wait for our return to Elk Ridge Ranch."
