All the beds have new high quality mattresses for a great nights sleep.

The entire house is decorated with the 'North Woods' feel to help you enjoy the full beauty on nature. Spending time with Family and friends reconnecting is what makes vacations special.

There are two living areas to relax and enjoy terrific views of the lake. Full big screen TV, DVD, and sound system in the lower level. The home faces south so you get nice sunlight all day long. A huge deck is lake side to enjoy as well.

The second house which we call the 'Cub House' is perfect for 4 people who want a little more privacy. The cute cottage has two bedrooms with Queen log beds. A smaller kitchen and dinning area as well as a nice front room. You feel like you are on the lake!

The lower level contains a fun bar, walk out patio door and games.

The best part is the screen porch connected to the cottage. This is the place where everyone will gather for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Great views of the water and minimal bugs!

This area is really nestled in nature and once you arrive, you will quickly start to experience the true beauty of all that nature has to offer.

About Craig Weinand

Dan & Mary Wait grew up in the Land O Lakes area and are 2nd generation log home builders. Dan built this home in 1996. You can tour the Log Home factory on your way to the home. Also visit a unique antiques store in a model log home on site.

Craig Weinand purchased this house in 2013

Why Craig Weinand chose Watersmeet

Dan & Mary know the area and picked this spot for it's location in a prestine natural playground. The Sylvaina Wild Life area is truly special. Clearwater lake is the headwaters of the Cisco chain with clear spring feed water for excellent fishing and swimming. Deer greet you in the yard. Neighbors are few but nice.

What makes this house unique

The minute your bags are unpacked and you grab a seat in the screened in porch you are ready for a week of relaxation. The sounds for loons. A dear looking at you around the corner. Fish jumping in the lake you front of you. A fire pit with a built around deck for the cool nights.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed staying at the Log Home. We had plenty of space for everyone. The weather was changing fast so we spent half the time inside the house and the rest exploring this beautiful area. We loved the location, space indoors and out, and the amenities such as billiard, canoe, kayak, boats etc.

The owner responded to all our questions and provide us with valuable information. Thanks Craig! Next time we are coming for a longer stay!

Great Winter Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Thank you Craig for sharing your great cabin with us! Our family had a great time snowmobiling, ice fishing, hiking to the waterfalls in the area, and just relaxing. The set up with both cabins worked very well for our group. Many great memories were made on this stay and we would definitely consider coming back again.

The Perfect Winter Get-A-Way

  • 4 of 5

Rented "Bear Paw" for a four day weekend get-a-way to ride snowmobiles and enjoy time with family and friends. It was perfect for this purpose!

Trail "13" is just down the road. Clearwater Lake and some adjoining lakes are linked together on some private trails. We had various options immediately around us to enjoy our rides in the great Michigan outdoors of the Upper Peninsula.

"Bear Paw" is a very nice log cabin style retreat with good amenities. I do not hesitate to recommend it to others...

Northwoods log home with second home Cisco chain area

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our vacation very much at your log home. There was plenty of space for all of us to relax and have a great time. The cabin was beautifully decorated and the kitchen was stocked with all we needed. The beds were very comfortable and plenty of bathrooms. The sandy water was a plus for our grandchildren to swim , ski, and water tube. The grand kids enjoyed the table games during the rainy days. We definetly recommend this to anyone needing a relaxing vacation. We loved the wildlife, ducks, and ducklings swimming next to us on shore, the bald eagles flying overhead, and the loons singing.
