This rental is AMAZING! So blessed to have found this.

  • 5 of 5

The pictures posted do not begin to reflect how beautiful this property and cabin are. Every seat comes with its own unique view of the lake. We visited for Thanksgiving and although I brought some of my own kitchen supplies, I did not need to. The kitchen had everything I needed. The opportunity to bring our dogs was priceless. They loved running on the beach and fetching the ball from the lake. It has a very hectic year for our family, so the opportunity for myself, husband and two daughters (25 & 16) to truly disconnect from the world and reconnect as a family was very special. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, this is the place. God bless you Mr. Johnson for sharing your home!

Great place with beautiful lake views and access

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here and loved watching the lake change each day, from calm to full of waves. It is amazing to be so close to the sand and water! The beach is great for walking! And the sound of the waves fills the rooms. The house is surrounded by trees and feels very private. The state parks close by were a very pleasant surprise. This offers a wonderful retreat and we can bring our dog! Hope to return!

Best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

I like woods and my husband likes water. This was the first time we had both and we were able to take our Basset hound who loves the woods. I even saw 3 deer when walking the dog. The cottage was great and very well stocked with supplies. The kitchen was very modern and great. The wood paneling was rustic and the view from the windows was unbelievable. When we walked in the back door you would think the house was sitting in the lake. My husband has trouble walking so the only problem was the shower. There was nothing to hold onto so he couldn't get into the tub. I told him if it was warmer he could go in the lake. We were there for 3 days so we managed. We will certainly go back again. It is nice that it is less than 3 hours from where we live.

Who knew autumn could be so nice !

  • 5 of 5


Thank you for sharing your cottage with us for our 4th visit. This year we tried autumn instead of early or late summer and we are hooked. The place is all weather tight for cooler temps, and we could enjoy every part of the cottage. As always, the amenities provided were great. We love the flavor of a true lake cottage, and appreciate the way each year that you maintain and upgrade without sacrificing its charm. Just walking in the cottage, hearing the waves, and smelling the woods- we can feel the old life fall away as we get ready for a "vacation".

See you next year !

The Clearing exceeded our expectations! This was a perfect place to recharge for all of us. It was a privilege to have Todd share his home with us. We will be back as soon and as often as we can!
