  • What a view

    "This was a great place to stay. From the beginning until the end of our stay it was very easy to communicate with the owner. The house was in a very quiet are, which is exactly what we were looking for. The view is stunning and better than described. The house was clean and very well equipped. It felt like we were at home and I would definitely stay there again if we go to the area."

  • Wonderful extended family vacation

    "I am writing his review on the last night of our five day family vacation, because I want to make sure I do justice to this lovely setting. Our extended family of nine had more room than we needed, and were extremely comfortable, even if the weather did not exactly cooperate on this Labor Day weekend. Each of the five bedrooms had its own bathroom, and there were three hot tubs. There were also walk in showers for us shower lovers, plus a half bath just off the first of two kitchens. This kitchen, on the main floor had two large refrigerators, large counter space, with two double sinks. There were spices aplenty, stove, microwave and dishwasher, which did a great job on the huge dinner plates, a commercial coffee maker (with hot water) and plenty of silverware. Then downstairs, there was another complete kitchen! For three families, it was wonderful. The kids played in the pond, caught fish (catch and release) from the dock and the boats, used the swings, and played ping pong in the basement. There is plenty of storage and there are nooks and comfy couches for reading and relaxing. There is literally NO traffic past the house, but keep in mind it is a drive to any groceries, so plan well. We had all divided the meals, and cooked every night on the large gas grill. One unplanned benefit...there is no tv in the great room, so all the meals required conversation. There are televisions in the bedrooms, but they didn't get used much. The cable and the wifi are great. The owner/operators are across the pond during the day, but at night, it is just you and the grapevines and sounds of nature. And, if you're too lazy to go the the winery for the live entertainment, just open the screened patio door, and listen from your back deck."

  • Just as indicated

    "The lakefront home was just as the owner had indicated in pictures. There were plenty of spaces for our extended family. We all enjoyed the open format of the kitchen/dining area. This is not recommended for those averse to stairs. My daughter and I had the loft area and often found ourselves running from the dock through the house and to our room."

  • Cute cottage & great location!

    "We just visited Clear Lake, IA, 8/1-8/3/14. The cottage had all amenities and was nicely decorated & clean too. It was in walking distance to many things, which was very nice. The owner, Linda, was very nice to work with and very prompt in responding to requests. Their property manager was also very nice to work with too, very accommodating. Also an added plus was the Classic Car show and 50s/60s band that played music in the park. This cottage is also just around the corner from the Surf Ballroom that is well known in Clear Lake. Would definitely stay here again!"
