"Let us add our glowing review to the dozens of positive reviews that others have already written here. We recently spent two wonderful days and nights at the Edelweiss cabin to celebrate our anniversary, and we could have not asked for a more peaceful and romantic experience. The cabin is very clean and well furnished with most anything you might need for your stay. The view from the screened-in porch is amazing—we saw deer playing in the open meadow behind the house, wild turkeys strutting in the open areas, and all manner of birds and other wildlife. We enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit each night as we gazed at the stars, and we also made use of the kayaks and paddleboat that are provided.
Even more than the comfortable and well-maintained cabin and property, however, you will soon come to appreciate the glorious privacy and the sense of peace and tranquility that make this such an amazing experience. We were just a few minutes drive to all of the historic sites in Dubuque, yet when we settled in at the Edelweiss cabin, we felt that we were a world away from the noise and commotion of a busy city.
Laura was a pleasure to work with, and we enjoyed the freshly baked cookies when we arrived. The Edelweiss cabin is perfect for one or two couples, but with the other cabin just a short walk away, this setting would be perfect for a small family get-together as well. We will no doubt return for another relaxing stay, and we have already told some of our friends about the cabins."

"We really enjoyed our stay here, the cottage is so welcoming and comfortable. It has everything you need - full kitchen, Internet, cable, even laundry! We usually stay with family when visiting Clear Lake and this is the first time during our visits that we felt like we were on a true vacation! The beds were so comfortable and my sons really appreciated not having to share a bed. The cottage is in great shape and very clean.
This is a great location. You can see the lake from the front door and you are within walking distance to great restaurants, Main Street shopping, the park with all its summer events, and the Surf. We had a really nice dinner at Sips right next to the Surf. Enjoy!"

"We had a large group of 32 people meeting for a reunion. We love the pictures of this place on the website and it looked like it would accommodate all of our needs. When we arrived it exceeded our expectations. There were more beds than listed so everyone was able to have a sleeping spot on a bed or a cot. The cabin was gorgeous with plenty of fridge space for all of our food. It was nice and secluded so we were able to enjoy our weekend without worrying about neighbors. It was in nature which allowed for swimming, tubing, kayaking, hiking, and fishing. There is a small town close by so anything that we forgot to bring we were able to go into town within 15 minutes. I would highly recommend this place for a get together or a relaxing trip. There were even board games and ping pong tables there to keep us entertained if we got bored. We will definitely be revisiting there very soon."
