"Being from California, I had never really seen fall color, so we decided upon Michigan this year to have a real "autumn" experience. We spent several nights at this lovely cottage on Clear Lake. Because of the time of year, it was quiet and tranquil and the view across the water was gorgeous. The autumn weather was lovely and the leaves were vibrant. It was warm enough during the day to go out and walk in the woods, and kayak and paddle board, but cool enough in the evening to snuggle by the fire place (which works and warms great). I don't think the photos of the cabin really fairly show how close you are to the edge of the lake; you can hear the water lapping against the shore. The cottage is a wee bit dated, but I found that entirely charming and warm. The owner has recently added WiFi service, so that is not longer an inconvenience. And the food at the local bar is pretty dang good. Highly recommend a stay here on Clear Lake."

"We had a great experience staying here. The accommodation was very clean. The owner "Kip" welcomed us on our arrival and showed us around. The kitchen has everything that you will ever need starting from utensils and all the way to spices. Coal and Gas grill. Big private back yard and private beach access with a dock to sit on and enjoy the beautiful lake view. Fire pit in the back yard with plenty of space to sit around. We were an hour late at checkout and the owner was very accommodating about it. Overall a great experience. Will definitely go again."

"This cottage is nestled back off the busy roads and gives you a real "up north" feel. It is centrally located on the lake with a boat launch less than a mile away. The cottage is clean, comfortable and well-equipped so don't feel like you need to bring your whole kitchen with you. But, do remember to bring your own bed linens and towels including hand towels for the bathroom, dish towels for the kitchen and a few rags for cleaning the chairs and table outside. The owner was very gracious and flexible. He made us feel at home and truly wanted us to relax and enjoy the cottage and all it has to offer. I would highly recommend the cottage and would stay there again."

"We have rented Tattrie's cottage a number of times over the years. We have never had anything close to a bad experience on any of our vacations. I think this was our 4th time renting and we plan to return every year. Opal lake is northern Michigan's best kept secret and Tattries cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the area. The cottage is always clean, sleeps plenty and has everything you could want. Some people enjoy the out of state escape vacation. I personally love driving a couple hours and having my vacation start when I walk in the door. If you are expecting a 5 star resort with pool attendants and maids, room service etc, this is not the place for you. It is a cottage, a cute perfect cottage in an great location. I have been coming to Opal lake since I was a child, I dreamed of retiring or living on this lake when I grew up. Tattries gives me the opportunity to live that dream every year I visit. My wife and kids have fallen in love as I did. See you next year."
