"We absolutely loved Clear Lake and "Just Off the Lake". The house was like going home to Grandma's place. Well stocked kitchen with all the utensils, bowls, plates, pot, pans, etc. Kids especially enjoyed all the Disney movies that were on hand!. The lake was a bit of a hike, but hey, vacation time gives you plenty of time for a leisurely stroll. The paddle boat around the lake was very relaxing and the free show in the park was a great evening! We loved it!"

"We stayed here during the 4th of July week and our stay was perfect. The house was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The neighbors were all very nice and made us feel right at home. They had a variety of games and toys that kids can enjoy, bikes to ride, and plenty of kitchen supplies. It was like going to a loving Grandma's house. Clear Lake is a great place to visit and this house made our stay very enjoyable! We will definitely visit again!"

"I stayed here with my best friends for a ladies' weekend. It was our second year in a row at this cabin, and we plan to keep the tradition going. Maintenance and home improvement just keep making this cabin better by the year! It's clean as can be, perfectly stocked, thoughtfully decorated, and in a relaxing, quiet, lovely location. We had a great time in Clear Lake -- enjoyed the lake and area, often without even getting in the car. This house has a perfect location, and I highly recommend it!!"

"We stayed at this property in July of 2011. We came for a reunion and met family members that came from all over the United States. Several families rented different houses around Clear Lake, but ours was by far, the most enjoyable. It is "move in ready". It is just as others write, It looks like Grandma just left and is coming back any minute. The home is fully appointed with everything you need. The beds are comfortable and to us, that is a real plus, especially if you are there for a long visit. We had the air conditioning go out, but the owners had someone there immediately to fix the problem. If I had one wish, it would be for a larger TV and cable. We were busy while we were there, but I do like to relax later in the evening and watch a little TV before bed. They had a large selectionj of videos but I would have liked a little more live TV. I highly reccomend this property to any family needing a comfortable place to vacation."

"Just Off The Lake accommodation was perfect for our family.  We had five adults and two small children and there was plenty of room.  For me it was like stepping back into my childhood home - just with more modern conveniences.  Our two-year-old and four-year-old grandchildren were delighted to find a basket of toys and plenty of outside room to run off some energy - very child-friendly.  The location was perfect for us, away from the maddening crowds of the Lake front but close enough to really enjoy the Lake.  Easy drive to the town centre and friendly neighbours - we would recommend Just Off The Lake to anyone."

"Felt like coming home, though it was my first time. House is perfectly clean, thoughtfully arranged, more amenities than I expected (games, books, shelf space, kitchen supplies, recreational stuff). House feels spacious because of owners' attention to detail and high quality of each piece of furniture. Excellent air conditioning, water quality, water pressure. I absolutely loved my time in Clear Lake, and it was made even more special by staying at this vrbo! It has my highest recommendation. I'll be back!!"

"Our weekend was absolutely wonderful! My mother really enjoyed getting to relax and sit on the front porch in the mornings. My husband says his favorite part was the bathroom decor. For me it really reminded me of the joy of going to visit my grandparents. It has a older feel (like grandma's house) that is inviting and makes you want to stay forever. The whole process of renting was easy and enjoyable. We have rented many homes before and I will tell you one of my favorite things that very few people do when renting out a property is the keyless entry (coded entry). The home we rented in Hawaii had a similar system and it made coming and going SO easy. I was thrilled to see you had the same thing."

"One word to describe our stay . . . perfect!  The only thing that would have made it better would be if we could have stayed another night.  You have a very nice home . . . clean & comfortable.  It exceeded all of our expectations.  The location was ideal & easy to find . . . The grocery store is nearby which made it convenient for us.  Our kids are all grown but you should have seen their excitement when we first got there & throughout the stay.  Our oldest daughter is 27 years old & she was enjoying your coffee table books.  She is also a Lucy fan.  :)  We love Clear Lake & the total vacation atmosphere.  We will definitely consider another visit in the future and your home would be our first choice to stay at."

“Nice, quiet, clean & comfortable – like visiting grandma but she's not home.  Quiet neighborhood, quick access to lake, great area for bike riding.  Owner friendly & happy to answer questions.  We enjoyed the central park, (saw a play on the Constitution) shopping, swimming, & loved the friendly people @ Clear Lake.  Must try Cabin Coffee & Muskie Lounge-yum!  Our Shi-tzu loved being able to go too!”
