Wisconsin Get Away

This great rustic cabin is the best for our family gatherings. Close enough that people can come visit for just a few hours and if you need anything its just minutes away. Super beach for walking, water temps were great for all the water activities. Just wish I knew where all the flies come from. It's got to be the westerly winds.

Beautiful location and a great place to relax.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a fantastic stay. The description is accurate and the Lake is amazing. Our teenage boys enjoyed the beach, lake and the fire ring on the beach at night. The water was chilly but we swam most days.

A Special Place

  • 5 of 5

This was my family's second visit to The Clearing. We've been guests at many a beach home from coast to coast, salted to unsalted seas alike. While we've enjoyed something from all, it's the exception that we make return visits. The Clearing is one such exception. It has that old-time camp feeling of cottages from years-gone-by before people started putting up McMansions, but it has the comforts that are most essential. Thank you for welcoming us once again. We are grateful for our second visit. If providence should so bless us, I'd welcome an opportunity to return yet again. I hope we left things in good order for you and the next guests.

No worries stay! EVERYTHING was provided. Home was clean and larger and nicer then expected.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the cottage. It was great to have everything there - towels, chairs, fire pit, GREAT wifi (it worked from the beach the small cottage in back), kitchen supplies, games, etc. We've rented at lot of places and there is always something that that is missing, but you had everything - even a pizza cutter. Totally stress free! It was a little chilly at first, but the weather was fantastic that last half. We loved how close it was to the water!

Great setting for our family to celebrate each other and the beauty of Lake Michigan! Family beach walks with three toddlers and our dogs were priceless!

Nice place to stay.

  • 3 of 5

The Clearing was a nice, clean, well stocked, if somewhat rustic, place to stay. We were close to our son in Sheboygan. Of course, the lake was stilll too cold but we enjoyed walking the beach with our dogs. The master bed could use an upgrade. Our 21 year old daughter enjoyed the "bunkhouse" for some private time.
