About Bill and Tanya Schmidt

We love Clear Lake! The Surf Ballroom is what brought us to the town. We came for a concert and fell in love with the area. Our kids love to come to Clear Lake for all the family fun activities and events that happen year round, summer is a great time to enjoy the lake, the bandshell, the BBQ fest, classic car show and much more. Clear Lake has a small town feel with events that rival a bigger city, you will not be disappointed!

Bill and Tanya Schmidt purchased this Cottage in 2007

Why Bill and Tanya Schmidt chose Clear Lake

We chose to buy a vacation/rental home in this location because, it is walking distance to the Surf, restaurants, city park, beach, Lady of the Lake, shops and the list goes on. A typical summer day includes~ packing a lunch, biking down to the beach, swimming, playing at the park, getting a cookie at Cookies etc. OR buying an ice cream treat from the ice cream truck (complete w/bell and all),bumming around the shops and biking back...great day!

What makes this Cottage unique

Off season there's still plenty to do...stay in the cozy cottage, play games, watch a movie, go to the Lakes theatre, head to Mason City for some shopping or visit the museums. There's numerous events going on in town monthly, Christmas on the Lake, Kites in Feb., Buddy Holly winter festival at the Surf Ballroom, 4th of July celebration etc. Every time we are in Clear Lake we're never ready to leave!

                                                                  Came to Clear Lake to see Peter Frampton at the Surf! I can honestly say I have never walked to a concert. Two blocks and we were at the sold out show.

                                                                  The cottage was the perfect size for the 3 of us...nice, warm and cozy. Great kitchen...we fixed Easter dinner there. Comfortable furniture snd nice TV to watch movies. Brought my Apple TV...and the internet kept up great!

                                                                  I would recommend the Surf N Sleep to anyone going to Clear Lake!

                                                                  We want to return in the summer to enjoy the lake life....

                                                                  Great Weekend Getaway!

                                                                  Mari T.

                                                                  The Surf-N-Sleep was clean and very comfortable. Everything was as indicated in the description. The only drawback is the bathroom situation. For older people, it’s a long walk from upstairs, through the living room and kitchen to the bathroom in the middle of the night. There were 5 of us, so getting ready one at a time was time consuming.

                                                                  Wonderful Stay!!

Tanya was very attentive and answered all questions and any needs or questions promptly. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Wonderful home and so much cozier than a hotel for our family weekend!!

                                                                  Family Thanksgiving

                                                                  Sara R.

Our family of 6 was very comfortable and we had 9 for Thanksgiving dinner that worked out just fine. We would stay again and recommend it to anyone.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

We had a three year old and an 18 month old who used a pac-n-play. We put the pac-n-play in the porch area at night, and an adult slept downstairs to be near him. The location was nice, not too far from the lake.

                                                                  Fabulous place
