Luxury at the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, so comfortable and relaxing. These owners know how to treat people. Everything you could possibly need is waiting there for you. We loved kayaking on clam lake, sitting on the deck and relaxing by the fire.

This place is amazing!

Ski lodge on the lake

  • 5 of 5

My wife, friends and I really enjoyed this mountain cabin style home on Clam Lake. It was tastefully decorated and stocked with everything one could need. The owner was very attentive and helpful. The location was perfect for a weekend getaway with many recreational opportunities (we discovered great mountain biking trails just a short ride from the property) and the quaint town of Bellaire just 10 minutes drive from the property. The owners are still in the process of completing the downstairs area but this did not detract from the beauty of the location. This location is on the top of our return trip list.

A true gem on Clam Lake!

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully decorated and on a gorgeous spot on Clam Lake. The owner was an absolute pleasure to deal with and helped us work through all of our issues (like where to store our boat trailer during the stay.) This really is one of the best places on the chain of lakes because even when the big lake (Torch) is rough and choppy Clam is relatively calm and your boat is not banging the dock. Our family of four will be back next year for a full week, Thanks Cheryl!

A beautiful quaint cabin over looking a gorgeous lake view

  • 5 of 5

I rented this beautiful quaintly decorated cabin with a gorgeous view of Clam Lake, pictured they are taken certainly does not If you are looking for a peaceful weekend get away or vacation Look no further, this cabin has everything you need to make it an enjoyable time for all. The cabin was immaculate inside and out, linens and towels were provided. A washer and dryer was available for our use and all the kitchen accessories needed to cook at home were provided with a grill outside as well. Cheryl went above and beyond made our stay extra special with a few thoughtful gifts through out the cabin, along with a booklet of ideas or places to visit during our stay. She was always available and answered any questions that I had. My father, kids and myself enjoyed the peaceful view of the lake on the back upper and lower deck, we ate all of our meals at the cabin outside on the patio furniture. To wind down from kayaking with the two kayaks provided, and dock fishing (caught and release of course) we headed straight for the hot tub what a truly wonderful and relaxing way to end each day. I would most definitely love to return to this gorgeous peaceful cabin again and again. I just want to thank Cheryl for her great hospitality and opening up your gorgeous cabin to us. May next time a coupon or some sort of discount with me provided. facility . I would absolutely

recommend any one of all ages stage here this cabin, its perfect for 3-5 people. I will attempt to get hold of Cheryl in the near future and spend some moretime up there < Hopefully it might be accompanied by a discount next time?
