Having stayed here the previous summer, we were skeptical, but desperate! The two bedroom cottage we stayed in was clean, with newer appliances and updated bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. We appreciated the electric fireplace as it kept the cabin comfortable when temps were 9'c! The furniture and flooring is very outdated, but not gross. There was a fairly... More

These are charming oldstyle beach cottages. They are centrally located across the street from the beachhead. Each cabin is equipped with propane barbque and a basickitchen with fridge and stove. There is a comfortable friendly atmosphere about the cottages.

After reading the many reviews, I wasn't so sure if choosing the cottages of the clear lake would be a good idea. However, due to short notice not many choices were left. To my surprise and right from the very beginning, We were attended by extremely friendly people, right from the first reservation call. We arrived at 2pm and official... More

Its hard to believe that the owners or in the matter of fact anyone would have the conscious to rent this dump out to anyone. There was mold around the bath tub, the walls were rotting, the tiles in the bathroom are missing, the windows screens are all cut up and missing. These we noticed as we

Last time we had been to Clear Lake, these were still Johnson cabins. We had stayed there once, and did not like it. The new owners have definitely improved! They had a nice electric fireplace, and with the rainy cold weather it was appreciated. The comforters they had were also surprisingly warm. The cabin itself was close to the town... More

I had very low expectations after seeing the photos of our cabin, but realized upon arrival that I should have lowered them further. The bedrooms were so small you could not fully open the doors, the floors in the cabin were so dirty that we had to wear our flip flops inside, and the couch look like it had been... More

100% NO. Do not put your vacation in the hands of the Cottages at Clear Lake. The only maintenance this place has seen in the last 10 years is a wi-fi router someone stapled to the wall. Pretty sure they furnished this place with a matching sofa and love chair they found at the local garbage dump. Don't expect to... More

I would advise anyone considering staying here to choose elsewhere. Expect additional charges and outrageous accusations of damages following your stay. I was charged extra for a "candle wax" stain on a couch that was already stained and gross upon arrival, not to mention that I didn't light a candle all weekend. When I called the resort and spoke with... More
