  • Zach's upstairs apartment is a great place for a lake get away! Great views of the lake from upstairs and the downstairs patio. It is also right across the street from a public access area. The apartment was spotless and equipped with everything we needed! Zach and Kathy responded quickly to any questions we had. Thanks for a wonderful place and we look forward to staying there again!

    Sue2019-10-01T00:00:00Z

    Lita2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Nice clean place. Beautiful view of the lake. Has everything you need for your stay. Great hosts.

    Lynne2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Great location on a quiet relaxing part of the lake! Close enough to town but still felt so peaceful and quiet like we were on our own private section of the lake. The house was close to the dock and the hosts allowed us to rent their pontoon during our stay which was great! Kids were able to swim and fish from the dock! House was clean and decorated very tastefully. Furniture was all comfortable and there was plenty of room for all 6 of us. Kathy was extremely helpful with any questions we had about the area and she had lots of great suggestions for us. She was an absolute treat to have as a host!! We will definitely return in the future :)

    Jason2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great Clear Lake get away spot! Close to the lake, boat you can rent, kids could swim off the dock (and could touch for quite a ways out) fun places to shop in downtown, really close to Mason City. Can’t say enough good things!

    Jen2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • My family (husband, myself, 2 year old, & 4 year old) spent 3 days at this place, and we loved it! The house was very clean, everything was updated and stylish, there was plenty of space, and the location was perfect! We packed up the van each morning and took the 2 minute drive to the nearby beach to spend the day there! I couldn't believe how big the beach was, and how huge the shallow end of the water was! It was PERFECT for taking young kids! There were a couple of missing items in the kitchen while we were cooking, but they immediately provided them once we informed them they were missing. Every time we needed anything (supplies or suggestions), we got a responses within minutes. Overall, it was a great experience, and we left wishing we had spent an additional day there! We hope to be back!

    Molly2019-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • It was a clean, usable space. The hosts were very accommodating and communication was great. It was a nice place to stay.

  • A lovely experience with considerate hosts.

    Donald2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable, cozy, and warm stay! Pat & Laurie are truly charming, thoughtful, and delightful hosts! The bed and linens were outstanding, the toilet paper soft (makes a difference), and everything was very clean. Locating their home is a breeze and check-in was easy. As an added bonus, the room I stayed in and the entire house is beautifully decorated in a nautical/lake theme – really creates a special atmosphere. I was traveling for work this trip but hope to return for a personal visit to explore Clear Lake, at which time I will 100% stay at the Craven Cottage again! I highly recommend this airbnb!

    Jena2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Once again a fantastic stay! Pat and Laurie are like family to me and going to The Craven Cottage is like coming home. Love staying here!

    Kathryn2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • My third time at The Craven Cottage Too did not disappoint! I was here again for work and Laurie somehow always knows how to make me feel like I'm not working. We had a blast catching up with each other and watching Hallmark Christmas movies together the majority of the week. Pat and Laurie treat their guests like family and I highly recommend checking them out the next time you are headed to Clear Lake or the surrounding areas.

    Kathryn2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at The Craven Cottage was a great experience! We throughly enjoyed our experience. You essentially have the whole first floor of the home to yourself! Laurie and Patrick were great hosts always making sure we had everything we needed!

    Amanda2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Craven Cottage is like a safe Harbor for its guests to stay. Beautiful decor, comfy bed, private bathroom and bedroom. Laurie is great and so kind and genuinely wants the best experience for you! Close to downtown. In a quiet neighborhood. Homey and peaceful.

    This barn refinished into a rustic cabin will give you the feeling that you are in the middle of the woods while having the convenience of being in town. Located just minutes from downtown Clear Lake, the historic Surf Ballroom, and City Beach, this is the perfect get-away spot! A large upper loft makes this a great option for families with kids or a peaceful adult retreat. Pets are family... so we are pet friendly, but do add a $25 dollar non-refundable pet fee for the duration of your stay.
    Air mattresses are welcome but not provided.
  • This place is beyond beautiful! We rented it for my daughter’s 12th birthday and enjoyed the generous space to spread out, the comfy beds, and the draw of the fireplace. Beauty all around!

    Marilyn2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place to stay! Super clean, super cute, with lots of great things to entertain the kiddos! Not far at all from the lake--we brought bikes and a canoe and had no complaints about not being right on the water. Tucked back off the road with a great yard and sense of privacy! I would definitely stay here again!

    Lisa2019-07-27T00:00:00Z

    Baker's Corner is a historic farm on the southeast edge of Clear Lake. The acreage sits amidst Iowa farmland but is only minutes from the tourist attractions of Clear Lake and the amenities of Mason City . This quiet, cozy, country home is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. A continental breakfast and a loaf of homemade bread and seasonal jam are provided.
    Clear Lake is one of Iowa's best tourist towns. There is something to see and do almost every weekend of the year. From Buddy Holly weekend at the Historic Surf Ballroom, two State Parks, Christmas by the Lake, Wooden Boat Show, Annual Art Sail, Thursdays on Main, Classic Car Show, the 4th of July Celebration, fishing tournaments, sailing Regattas and much more. It's often a favorite (northern route) overnight stay for RAGBRAI (Register's Annual Great Bike Ride Across Iowa)! You'll find a complete listing of fun opportunities at the city's website. Attention bikers: Baker's Corner is situated along the paved Trolley Trail that runs between Clear Lake and Mason City. Heading east from the corner you can ride along the old highway and electric train track all the way to Mason City, through town on marked trails and turn around at Lime Creek Nature Center on the northeast side of town. Heading west on the Trolley Trail takes you into downtown Clear Lake and continues in a 14 mile loop around the lake through residential areas and the Sister's Prairie paved trail on the southwest edge of Ventura - a beautiful ride.
  • Beautiful country cabin. Cozy, spacious, clean, and ideally located between Clear Lake and Mason City. 10 minute drive to both cities’ amenities and attractions. This is a beautiful property and we couldn’t have picked a better place to stay. I’m looking forward to going back.

    Daniel2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Shelby2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • This space is amazing. So comfy and interesting, quiet and a great view of the surrounding fields. Everything you could possibly need and so many wonderful nostalgic items to discover. The grounds are lovely as well. The check in could not have been easier and the location was perfect. We might just have to plan a trip to stay here again!

    Sally2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to be thoroughly spoiled, this is the place. Mike and Mary have thought of everything and their warm welcome was so genuine. I can't say enough good things about this place. Mary's decorating and antiques are exquisite and we hope you luck out and get fresh baked bread like we did! The farms yard is beautiful and the plantings are nice to wander through and sprinkled with art sculptures. Twinkle lights at night and a patio to relax at. So many treats and special touches. Mike and Mary are very generous and thoughtful. You'll see! We're keeping some surprises for you to discover. It's a unique and special place and we'll be back!

(directly across the lake from the Tiki Bar at PM Park (our favorite place to eat and hangout, especially if there's a band playing) • 3 Blocks from Veterans Memorial Golf Course • 2 miles down the street from Surf Ballroom where Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens, and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson had their last concert (The Day the Music Died). •••OUR COMPLEX••• • This is a residential resort/condo complex. Most of our neighbors use their unit as a vacation home (not full time residents). • Only a few units in the complex are rented. Most of the people whom you will see throughout the complex are owners or family of the owners. • It is not acceptable as a renter to hold large gatherings, lots of noise, or disrupt the neighbors. •••OUR CONDO BUILDING••• • Our building is constructed of concrete, so most noise does not carry from one unit to the next. We rarely ever hear a neighbor. The unit above us is owned by people with kids who are around most weekends. Sometimes we do hear kids running across the floor above or hear if they drop something heavy on the floor above. • Our building is tucked in the back of the complex (away from the street). • It is about a 1- block walk around the harbor to get from our building out to the lake/lake dock/fishing dock/rocky beach/etc.
  • Superb lil nook in the Pilot House at Harbourage in Clear Lake!

  • This was a great place to stay. The individual condo has been beautifully renovated. The main building was a little older, but everything was well taken care of, quiet, and safe. It has so many amenities amenities that make your stay convenient and fun. The condo is well stocked with everything we needed for our visit. We will definitely stay again.

  • Lovely condo by the lake, very clean with all mod cons. Chris and Rachel have thought of everything to make your stay perfect with board games and tips etc for the pools, hot tub and what do do nearby. We stayed with our son whilst visiting our older son who studies and plays Soccer at Waldorf University it was the perfect location with plenty of room for him to join us for a meal or swim. Will definitely stay again and would recommend.

  • Our boys (3 and 5) loved our time in Clear Lake. We enjoyed the town very much, the donuts in town we went to twice! Overall we had a lovely time and we were sad to go home. Great spot for families.

    Joseph2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Loved having access to the pool! There were a couple nights that were chilly, so it was nice to have the fire place to use!

  • Alicia's place was adorable, comfortable, clean and well equipped. Stylishly decorated and comfiest bed I have ever slept in at an Airbnb. Walking distance to lake and downtown. Just the right size for our little family.

    Kerry2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a lovely, clean & modern little cottage. It’s in a perfect location right by the lake and close to downtown. Alicia was prompt with her communication and this was especially important when weather required us to stay an additional night. So many thoughtful touches throughout the cottage. We enjoyed the modern appliances, single serve coffee maker, games, cards, and overall cleanliness the space. We will definitely keep this in mind for future stays!

    Ginny2019-11-12T00:00:00Z
  • As always love staying at the cottage. It is clean and modern with comfortable beds. Location is amazing, I love to walk along the lake and go get coffee at Cabin Coffee in the mornings.

    Candice2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The greatest little cottage! Ideal location, so cute, and Alicia checked in upon our arrival to make sure we got in and settled. She was very quick to respond to questions, and so gracious to accommodate an additional day.. Highly recommend this cottage.

    Jill2019-10-27T00:00:00Z

    Jonathan2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • “The last little lake cottage” is absolutely a delight! Location is great, you can hear the calming waves of the lake. Close to everything so we walked most of our stay. Very clean and charming! Alicia was so informative and prompt with information and instructions before our stay that I knew our experience would be great! The time unfortunately went by too fast, can’t wait to return. Highly recommend staying here!!

    Carol2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Kent is an amazing host & is so willing to share his personal space all while making you feel welcome. Everything was as he portrayed it and the process was seamless from start to finish. This was my first experience with Airbnb and have signed on for a second month with him!

  • While staying here, I felt like I was in my home away from home. The bedroom was comfortable, cozy and private. There was access to the rest of the house including a well stocked kitchen from which to cook as needed. The accommodations were well stocked and always kept clean. Always felt any requests were heard and addressed adequately and quickly. My stay here was great and the location in the city was convenient. Easy to access all the local attractions. Great experience!

    Historic home just 3 blocks from downtown, city beach, and Central Gardens. Family friendly. Laid back atmosphere. Enjoy breakfast on the front porch and spend the evening around the fire, plan a family game night around the table.
    There are three bedrooms, each with one bed. One room has a king, one a queen, and one has a full sized bed. There is one full bathroom. An extra main floor bathroom is available, also. We book only one group at a time so you can use all three rooms for the one price. There is an additional fee for each extra person.
    Clear Lake has always been a summer vacation destination. The lake is clean, there are events in city park, downtown is quaint. In winter Clear Lake celebrates Christmas by the Lake, the Festival of the Trees, Colors of the Wind kite festival and The Day the Music Died which marked the passing of three Rock and Roll legends at the prime of their careers. Clear Lake memorializes that tragic day each year with the Winter Dance Party at the Surf Ballroom. Keep the Rock and Roll memory alive.
  • Wonderful hosts. Delicious breakfast. Highly recommended. Will definitely stay again.

    Amy Hua2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone looking for a place to stay in Clear Lake. They did everything to make us feel at home.

  • Wonderful space & hospitality, deliciously prepared breakfast with great human connection

    Danielle2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect place! In walking distance to downtown. We loved relaxing and drinking coffee on the front porch. Christine and Van were incredible hosts!

    Caryline2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • Christine and Van have a lovely home, and they are excellent hosts. They are very laid back and friendly, and provided a top-notch breakfast to us both mornings we stayed with them. We also had our 5-year old daughter with us, and they were incredibly tolerant of her and are used to being around small children. The home has so much character with a lot of history behind it, and is elegant and clean, but very comfortable. One other detail -- I had forgotten an item after checking out but was still in town for an event. We had told them where we were going though, and Van showed up with my lost item hours later. I hadn't even realized it was missing! This is all to say that they both went above and beyond, and we would not hesitate to stay here again.

    Anna2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great hospitality and a house with neat character. They made us feel right at home!

    Stephanie2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Christine and Van were AMAZING hosts! Van cooked up breakfast both morning and the plating looked like something out of a magazine! Their hospitality was out of this world and the space was great! We come yearly to Clear Lake for our family reunion and we have found our place!! We can’t wait to go back!!!

    Heather2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We had a nice stay, perfect for us. Quiet and relaxing. Our hosts were kind, thoughtful and considerate. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast included many options and was plentiful and tasty. I would not hesitate to stay again. Clear Lake is a fun town - I thoroughly enjoyed my time.

    Do you remember visiting your grandma's place or other relative that had pristine '70's decor? This is the place. Carefully remodeled private apartment even your grandma or auntie would envy. Chic 70's decor and appointments await to stir those memories. We have made this modern yet a timeline trip to the 70's. This is an apartment on the upper floor, 7 steps up, in a four-plex style building. Private entrance from the deck. Main entry in the central hallway.
    1 block to lake access and bike trails. Walking distance to the local grocery, shops and eateries. Newly remodelled, with front covered deck and water view added.
    Just blocks from downtown but located on a serene side street. The neighbors all live local or just travel in for weekend fun.
  • Very good place and Dave was in touch everytime and quick to respond to queries.

    Lake Chalet is a cozy remodeled 1920’s farmhouse. It has all of the amenities of home and is blocks from Clear Lake, downtown Clear Lake and The Surf Ballroom. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It is ideal for adults and children over 7 and the home features a blend of midcentury modern and modern furnishings. It has fireplaces in the living room and in the master bedroom. The downstairs bathroom boasts a triangular soaking tub/shower combo and the upstairs master bathroom has a shower.
    This house has been remodeled from the very neglected 1920’s farmhouse it was originally. It is positioned on a beautiful tree lined street with friendly neighbors that is about a 10 minute walk to all of the attractions that Clear Lake boasts including the lake, downtown, and The Surf Ballroom. I plan on visiting a couple of times a year so it is outfitted with everything one would need in their own home. Other than my visits it was my intention to provide a homey, beautiful, unique, comfortable and inviting space to those visiting the beautiful Clear Lake area. When I looked to rent an AIRBNB while visiting the area before purchasing Lake Chalet I noticed there were no options with the esthetic I enjoy and I know many others do as well. I hope you enjoy your stay in my beautiful Lake Chalet.
    The house is located within blocks of everything including the lake, restaurants, downtown, grocery stores, The Surf Ballroom and anything else you may need. It is on a quiet tree lined street that can be admired from the fantastic deck. The neighbors are friendly and welcoming.
  • Great place to stay! Enjoyed our time in Clear Lake!!

    Small cozy home that has new kitchen, bathroom, and floors throughout. I like to host long term guests that are in the area for work. Female guests only. There may be another guest in my room from time to time.
    Quiet neighborhood that has lots of trees. You can sit outside on the patio or enjoy a fire in the back yard. The bedroom is newly renovated and has all that is needed (queen bed, dresser/desk, and armoire).
    Quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors.
  • This stay just as great as the first! Laura is an awesome host that is so accommodating of my crazy schedule! She offers a very nice and clean space for meticulous stay when I’m there for work.

    The furnished rooms available for use are as is. It is near the Hanford Park and Gerk Arboretum. WiFi is available. Bathroom is shared with home owner upstairs. (I am building a second bathroom near the rental room which should be open for use soon). Use of kitchen and other spaces can be arranged. Off street parking. Home owner has cats and has medical knee issues with some needed modifications.
    My house is dated to 1919 and is one of the first houses built in Mason City. It is close to the south McDonalds and Homers bar as well as the Gerk Arboretum walking trails. The space for rent is a basement room with one full sized bed. I have used airbed down there for a night or two, for long term during the winter that is a cold option and I will try to trouble shoot the issue. Sometimes in the spring during heavy rains some water trickles in the walls...I did some repairs and it is questionable if this is still an issue until the heavy rains come again.
    It is a very quiet neighborhood near a school. I would still encourage guests to lock their vehicles even though it is a smaller town. I find it very relaxing here and I hope you are able to enjoy the Koi pond and hanging swing during warm weather. If winter sets in enjoy the gas fireplace in the sun parlor with a cup of coffee or cocoa. Just a heads up, the cats will be in your lap in this space. I happen to like that, be warned of Tinker the orange cat. he's loveable...but sheds. nicknamed Cheetos for a reason. There are 4 adopted rescue cats that the humane society wouldn't take. I know this is a bit much...and more than I had expected, but I can't watch living things suffer.
  • Crystal’s room has everything one would need and is close to all the attractions in Clear Lake and Mason City! This is our 2nd time staying at her place!

    Vito2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Great place and comfortable stay !

    Kerigan2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Crystals home is in an ideal location for accessing Mason City and nearby ClearLake. She shares her home with 4 adorable cats, and if you’re inclined they’ll happily curl up in your lap in the sun room and let you pet them. If cats aren’t your thing then that’s fine too as they’re corralled from the basement bedroom. This is a great area with a comfortable bed, air con, fridge and a seating area with TV. It’s private and has a separate entrance. Crystal is in the process of building a bathroom down there which will be a great addition to the place. I found my stay very relaxing and hope to return one day.

    Richie2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Crystal is a very attentive host for whatever your needs are. She's got a wonderful vintage home that she has made very cozy. It felt just like going to my sisters house. Her parents have a little sandwich shop called Pete's Kitchen. Wonderful homemade desserts and great gyros! There is a tv in the room with roku so you can watch almost anything you want. Internet was great. Nice washer and dryer if you need, which I very much appreciated. She has 4 cats that she has rescued and loves very much. They were never a bother. If you love cats they are there to snuggle with you! If not, they will leave you alone. The kitchen is well equipped and I was able to cook the foods I wanted. She has a well stocked coffee area. There is a gold fish tank to watch for relaxation, kind of like watching a fireplace. She's always making improvements to her property. I will definitely stay again! So glad to have found this place.

    Barb2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Very private room with a mini fridge and TV. If over 5'5, book the upstairs room or be prepared to duck on the stairs when entering/leaving this basement room. Will have a private bathroom soon as well! Crystal was very nice and accommodating. She had breakfast ready for us before we checked out, and we got to hang out with her and her cats.

  • A great location in downtown Clear Lake. We had 5 adults, 2 children, the bedrooms worked out well, 1.5 bathrooms is good. Living room is spacious and comfortable. WiFi connection, nice tv with available DVDs, games, books. If available next summer, we will book it again. Thank you Cyndi. :)

    Kathleen A2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was adorable. Just like the pictures and very clean. Having all the bedrooms upstairs was a big plus for us. Lots of games and things to do for kids on a rainy day. Walking distance to the park and the beach were a huge plus. Renting a boat from Movement Solutions was super convenient as the drop off is right next to the beach. We had a little issue with the A/C and Cyndi was on it.

    Corrie2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • This is our second summer staying at this location for our annual girls trip weekend in Clear Lake. We love the space and proximity to downtown. A block to the lake to walk along the lake walk is the perfect views anytime of the day. We absolutely love the decorations and vibe of the house and look forward to returning.

    Gina2019-07-14T00:00:00Z

  • This was a perfect spot to meet up with friends. Everyone had their own bedroom, plenty of space to hang out in the main/dining area and having a grill and fire pit were an added bonus. We were just a short walk to the lake and downtown. Walking down every night to watch the sunset was a highlight for us. Clear Lake has so much to offer and having a home to go back to was just perfect. Highly recommend this place!

    We live in a small tight knit neighborhood, the kind that makes you feel right at home. You will often find the neighbors sitting out on their patio drinking coffee in the mornings or gathering together in the afternoons. Go ahead and say hello, they always like meeting new people!
  • We stayed in this place over Thanksgiving 2019. I was really happy with how clean it was. There were thoughtful touches in the place and it was very stylish. Overall, it was comfortable and all the instructions were really great.

  • This house was truly a gem! Our group of three couples stayed a long weekend. It was so well appointed for our needs and Grandma’s welcome note and treat was so precious. The location near the Surf Ballroom was close to downtown. We throughly enjoyed the town of Clear Lake, the people were so friendly, the lake is wonderful. The shopping was fun and the restaurants were tasty! We hope to return with our family. Thank you Sarah for sharing your lake house home.

    Mary Ann2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed the decks and location. About 2 1/2 blocks to the Surf Ballroom. A great view of the lake. We will definitely stay there again.

  • This is a great place to stay. Walking distance to the Surf and many restaurants. Short drive to downtown. Nice public access down the street that you could walk your kayaks to and launch from. Sarah was AMAZING to work with and the house is so cute and spacious. We had six adults and we were all very comfortable with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Sarah for sharing your house. It is a great house!

    The Clausen House was built in 1890 and is a majestic place to stay. It has been updated with renovated bathrooms, kitchen & laundry room. It has ten foot ceilings on the main floor with beautiful original finished woodwork. The house has been in the Clausen family since it was built. We purchased the home to have guests enjoy it. It is great loc for families to get together and have lots of room to relax and enjoy themselves. Guests with mobility challenges can sleep on the main floor.
    This location is right downtown beside the public library and just four blocks from the Lake. It is nestled in a quiet neighborhood with off street parking. You can enjoy all the activities that Clear Lake has to offer and then return to the house to relax. It's on wooded lot with lots of mature trees that provide shade for most of the property.
    The neighborhood is quiet with the public library and churches on three sides of the property and a lumber company on the other side. Plenty of off street parking for vehicles and trailers.
  • Absolutely 5 Star accommodation! Best hosts and fabulous location!

    Ashlee2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Clausen House is a beautifully restored home that is exceptionally clean and tastefully decorated. Our group of 5 college friends had plenty of space to relax and enjoy our time together in this amazing house. Jayne and Myron were exceptional hosts who anticipated all our needs and provided many extras. We will definitely stay there again.

    LeAnn2019-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great little town. Surf Ballroom was fantastic. Laser Tag was great. The house was very accomodating.

    Chad2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing home, with so much character. Every room is thoughtfully set up, with beautiful handmade furniture. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Sam2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wow! This house is just amazing. It’s a true local treasure. I recently stayed there with a small group of florists for a large area wedding and it was an absolutely perfect spot for several gals to stay all together in one spot. The house is gorgeous with lots of original wood, etc. I loved the updated kitchen and it was a gathering spot for my group. The local is perfect. It’s about two blocks from the beach and a block away from local restaurants and nightlife. I’ll definitely stay here again!

    Jennifer2019-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • What a great, huge, historic home! We have a big family and we all fit very well in the home. Loved the proximity to downtown and to the lake. The rooms were great and we liked that the bathrooms were both at the end of the hall and accessible to everyone (instead of having a master with attached bath). The walls and doors were thick, which was great for sleeping. We had such a great time here! Plan to be back!

  • If you stay here, you will feel at home. The space is exceptionally clean, and has all the comforts you would crave. The bedding is luxurious, towels are fluffy and absorbent, and the kitchen amenities are top notch. The view of the lake from the deck is lovely as well. Another added bonus is you are a short walk to the lake and town. Our host was readily available to answer any questions we had. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

    Located directly across the street from Veterans Memorial Golf Course club house on the lake. It is a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment with a queen bed in one room(ability to raise and lower head or feet with remote), a bunk bed with a full on bottom and twin on top in the other room, and a couch. There is a nice patio just a couple feet from the lake and a long private dock on the lake side that you and other guests may use and enjoy. Great for a getaway to enjoy a weekend at the lake.
    The entire condo is available to you besides 2 closets that I keep personal items in. This is my home during the off season and I welcome guests to come enjoy it during most of the year! The patio and dock are available for use and I definitely recommend enjoying both of those while you visit!
    Located on North Shore Drive. Prime location on the point of the lake. One of the few properties on the entire lake that has view of the entire lake! Car and bike are the best way to get around. We are located 2 miles away from downtown Clear Lake and the nearest boat ramp.
  • We had a great stay at Barak’s condo! Everything was just as pictured, very comfortable, right on the lake, amazing sunsets! Barak was very prompt in answering any questions we had and check in was very smooth. Thank you for everything! Would definitely stay again!

    Melody2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • We loved, loved, loved our stay here! Such a cute, clean and perfectly located spot. Parking was the icing on the cake! The neighbors were all delightful and we even got to hear a few stories from them! We enjoyed the BEST coffee on the deck (furnished by the host, mind you) and made a few good memories for the books! I would rent this place again and again and again! 5 stars!!

    Peggy2019-06-09T00:00:00Z

We found it very comfortable, even considering we didn’t spend a lot of time! We hope to be able to stay here again!

We rented this house for a family girls trip ( 6 girls and a 4 year old) and Steve met us there to let us in and gave us info on house and a few suggestions for places to eat! Very nice - I will definitively be back!!!

    Our spacious, four bedroom lakefront cabin is situated on the calm SE corner of Clear Lake. The family and pet-friendly retreat is perfect for 2-11 guests offering an open kitchen and living space with stunning views of sunrises over the lake. Our cabin is a family treasure, not an income property. We selectively share it with guests to offset costs. For any potential rentals in July or August, a 5 day or $2,000 minimum is required. If your desired date appears booked, please inquire anyway!
    Along the south shore, the lakeside terrain varies wildly. We are fortunate to be just a few steps above the water. The cabin is a two story with a walk-out lower level. Main/Upper Level: • Two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, ceiling fan and TV. The larger room has room for a twin air mattress or pack-n-play • Full bathroom with shower/tub combo with grab bars • Kitchen is well-stocked with pots, pans, dishes, cooking oil and spices. Open format with a large island for casual dining, crafting and cookie-making • Living area adjoins kitchen offering two large sofas, a rocker, large TV and stunning views of the lake • Large deck off the kitchen with outdoor seating and gas grill Lower Level: • The large bedroom has a king bed, 43" TV, white-washed tongue & groove ceiling for a beachy look. With a picture window looking directly out to the lake. The sun rise view from bed over the lake is amazing...and bright! There is an open mudroom area that offers great overflow sleeping with a twin over full bunk. • The smaller bedroom has a queen bed and TV. It's dark and cozy and makes a great napping room! • There is unfinished space where the furnace, tools, new washer & dryer live. This is the route to the half bathroom. • The bathroom rustic, meaning built on a deck-type floor and is not finished with traditional materials. It definitely serves the purpose, especially with a full house. • Theirs is a open area at the bottom of the stairs that opens to the outside. This room is for overflow sleeping with a twin over full bunk bed. Open storage shelves hold all the standard array of lakeside necessities for our boating, sunscreening and bug repelling. In the off-season, this room houses patio cushions and floaties. • Just outside the lower level door is cozy patio with an outdoor sectional and makes for a lovely place to nap or enjoy the evening. It is partially weather proof so it is a great place to watch a storm skirt across the north side of the lake. It's the best spot to spend an evening during warmer month, other then on the end of the dock.
    Located in the Oakwood neighborhood. Biking, mini golf, a seasonal ice cream shop, Clear Lake State Beach, bike trails, restaurant and Tiki Bar @ PM Park. "Y Knot" offers water sports and bike rentals. We are a nice walk from the Sweet Spot ice cream shop on South Shore Drive.-
  • We stayed at Jeff and Emily’s cabin for a weekend away with friends. It was a very clean cabin with plenty of beds. It also has the perfect setup with kitchen and living room next to each other so even our large group could all hang out together in one space. Most importantly, Jeff and Emily were gracious hosts who responded quickly and were flexible with us when some unexpected changes came up with our travel plans. We are hoping to come back next winter!

    Brittany2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • It's perfect! The most amazing views in the morning and evening with the sunset over the lake. The location could not be better! If you are looking for a place that is "home" and plenty of room and fun for the family - This is the place!!!! It's absolutely perfect. I've used this specific place in the winter and the summer seasons, it truly makes this the most relaxing and enjoyable stay you could ask for. Just far enough away from town, but close enough for a quick trip into Clear Lake. Emily and Jeff were very easy to work with and made the trip stress free for us.

  • My family and I opted to stay with Jeff and Emily late November. The lake was a beautiful sight and the location of the cabin was so convenient for what we had plans to do! Having Lyft in the area is very nice given that it’s a short drive to town, however the space and distance is AMAZING for relaxation. There was so much ROOM for the dozen of us that stayed? And if we ever need to go to Clear Lake again—we hope to stay with Jeff and Emily again!

  • Fun, cozy, perfect for a family

  • What could be better than an entire home right on the lake with kayaks, fishing, relaxing deck, and watching the world go by.We would highly recommend their cabin!

  • Very nice place by the lake.

  • I wanted a great place to gather with all my siblings to spend a quiet weekend remembering and reconnecting. Jeff and Emily's place couldn't have been more perfect! The house felt like home and having the peaceful lake as a back yard just added to our relaxation. We had space when we needed it, wonderful places to gather inside and out, comfortable beds, and a very functional kitchen. Although we haven't all shared a living space in probably fifty years, your home helped us melt those years away. Thanks!

  • Jeff and Emily were great hosts. We will definitely stay again.

  • Awesome location. It was the perfect spot and Alicia went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable!

    Cara2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time here! The location is perfect. Alicia was very helpful! The dog toy and treats were very thoughtful. This was our family's first time staying in a vacation rental. We had a BLAST! Christmas on the lake and a show at the iconic Surf Ballroom. We will be back!!

    Logan2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great cottage with a super convenient location. The cottage was extremely clean and well appointed. I loved how they have kept the character of the cottage while still updating the interior/exterior. They hosts were wonderful and responded quickly to all question and even left a treat/toy for the dog. I would definitely stay here again!

    I've undertaken the project of fixing up & living in this old creamery building on the Winnebago River in the rural town of Fertile. Guests can have the spacious upstairs to themselves & pass time in the common areas downstairs. Peaceful place. If you're a supporter of Donald Trump, it's possible that this place may not be for you.
    A historical building curated in an artistic manner with an emphasis on relaxation & reflection. Still rough around the edges, but clean & inspiring. Extensive & eclectic library of books for guests to read. Upstairs (where your accommodations will be) has 2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, & a balcony with a table. The 2 bedrooms are separated by a hallway, but not a door. In the large, main room you'll find a queen sleigh bed. In the smaller room there is a queen bed & a double bed. The stairs leading to up to the space are quite steep & might not be appropriate for some elderly or health-compromised folks. There is a lock on the door to the upstairs to give you extra peace of mind. Downstairs is comprised of 3 living rooms, 1 bedroom, & the kitchen.
    It's quiet. Rural. There's a park right across the river with picnic tables, a basketball court (can provide a basketball), a horseshoe pitch (can provide two pairs of horseshoes), a dam, waterfall, old mill. Many characteristic gravel roads surrounding Fertile provide opportunities to get lost among low hills, cornfields & prairie. Clear Lake is only a 10 minute drive away. I-90 is 20-25 minutes away, I-35 is 5 minutes away.
  • A creative sanctuary! We enjoyed a longer visit our second stay and exquisite bites at Cafe Mir. Grateful for such a treasure and will stay again.

    Jennifer2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a wonderful spot for a cozy getaway! The space is intriguing and beautifully curated, full of plants and crystals and books. The kitchen is a wonder of its own! Nathaniel is incredibly accommodating and easy to communicate with, really couldn’t be a better host.

    Tom2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Creamery is a special place, all around. I almost don't want to write this review, so I can keep this place hidden for those who know it already, but I would be doing a disservice to Nathaniel and Fertile by doing so. The Creamery is charming, Moscow the cat is loving, Cafe Mir is amazing. We spent hours combing through the books and movies, all while popping a record on the record player. Come down to the Creamery when you need some time to relax and just be, either by yourself or with loved ones. It is a healing and restorative space. We are already planning our next trip down!

    Sarah2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place has lavish comfort and incredible style. Nathaniel is a wonderful host. There’s a restaurant down the street called “Cafe Mir” with great food. I would recommend this place for anyone or a group wanting to get a weekend away.

    Ben2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • This place is absolutely an exceptional find! It is absolutely authentic, and filled with eclectic and beautiful artifacts! This place is an experience. We definitely are coming back this summer just to enjoy it and Nathaniel is a great host! Thank you!

    Ahmad2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Nathaniel’s place was great, we would stay there again!

    Hilary2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • A hidden gem in a quintessential small farming community in NW Iowa. Easy access from the interstate. Gracious host. Peaceful. Spotless. Nathaniel’s Place is an uniquely renovated old creamery building with an expansive private upper level AirB&B space that offers two separate sleeping areas, comfortable beds, TV with Netflix and huge DVD selection, full bath, work table, desk and even an electric tea kettle. The interior is like a museum of eclectic art, antiques and novelties, plus hundreds of books. Did I say spotless?! We visited when the highly rated local Cafe Mir was closed, but Nathaniel offered good alternative recommendations. We’ll plan another visit in summer when we can better enjoy the Winnebago River that borders the backyard. Fabulous retreat place in a rural small town setting.

    Lisa2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • I’m a traveling technician who works in the renewable energy sector who stays in different BnB’s all over the United States and I must say, this place was my favorite rural stay this year. The building had a majestic vibe and blew away all of our expectations my coworker and I had created. Would recommend this Stay for a larger group as well, with the vast open rooms this place has to offer. Would be Incredibly stoked on the opportunity to work in the area again next season, as I would book this place in a heart beat.

  • The home more than met our expectations. It was spacious, very clean, and we had a wonderful view of the lake. The home was also tastefully decorated. In all, the five of us were extremely please and will go back again. Thanks Sue

    Lynette2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous house! We had great girls Weekend in the space. So much room to just sit and enjoy the time together. Great dining space and able to watch the big TV. Bedrooms were so clean and well taken care of. Kitchen had everything we needed. We will be back!

    Monica2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, beautiful house right on the lake and close to downtown & Surf. Very nice clean bedrooms. Keep in mind there are quite a few steps, if that is a problem for you, but was no problem to us. Sue is great to work with and we will keep her place in mind for next time we stay in Clear Lake.

    Barb2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing! We had an awesome time. The place is very clean and the pictures are very accurate. The host responds very quickly and was great to work with! There was plenty of kitchen items to be able to make all our meals. The yard space is great for games and little ones. We fished right off the dock and caught several different kinds of fish. We will for sure be back!!

    Katy2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely, immaculate home. Great for families. Fantastic view. Just a few minutes from downtown shops. Very helpful host.
