The SpaceThe house sits on roughly 50 feet of waterfront with a wide permanent dock, perfect for fishing or sunbathing. There's room in the driveway for your car and boat trailer, and whatever your watercraft, we probably have what you need to keep it docked or perform any maintenance tasks. Fireplace and bar on the main floor make for great conversations and pastime with friends or family. The home comfortably sleeps four to six people. This is a rustic cabin. The battle with nature is a full-time gig up here; so if you're a germaphobe, afraid of nature, or a neat-freak, then this place probably isn't for you. If you love outdoor camping, state park lodges, hunting, fishing and you are super laid back.. then you'll love the vibes here! Guest Access- 2 Canoes - 2 Single-person kayaks - Lake toys - Fishing equipment Interaction with GuestsWe live next door and manage this property. We have many supplies and are very accommodating to our guests. From bikes to floaties or life jackets, if you need anything we are just a stones throw away. The NeighborhoodThe lake is very vibrant and active in the summer. We commonly describe the lake as "young," as many of the owners if not actually young, have very youthful and energetic spirits! In the fall and winter, the lake is quiet and serene. As most of the home owners up here are weekend visitors only, you will often have the lake to yourself during the week. Getting AroundYou can walk to all of the essentials: grocery, restaurant, etc. For all else, you'll have to drive to a nearby city. Parking is included and shared with the tall house next door. Other Things to NoteIt's worth noting that the yard is small and the houses are close together. If you bring a dog that needs more space, there is open space and a dog park just down the road.

There's plenty of additional room in the sun room and living room for air mattresses and sleeping bags.

Guest AccessGuests have the entire house, garage, large yard, patio, beach area, dock and lake! The NeighborhoodStevenson Lake is just south of Clare, Michigan. It is a small, peaceful lake in the middle of farm country. You cannot hear any traffic, just birds and crickets. Clare is a small town where the famous Cop and Doughnuts Bakery is located. There is a quaint downtown area with shops, banks, coffee places, bars and restaurants. On the north end of town you will find all the fast food restaurants, Big Boy, and a bit further is Jay's Sporting Goods. The local grocery store has all the items you will need. This area of Michigan is also home to many Amish families. You will find their baked goods at Cops and Doughnuts, their baskets and art work at various shops and they also make furniture both for inside and out. You will see people from this community all over town. Please be careful not to run into their horse and buggies when in town. Mt. Pleasant, Michigan is south of the Lakehouse and is home to Central Michigan University. The city also has any store, restaurant, or service you might need or want. Getting AroundThe main mode of transportation is car. Feel free to bring your bikes because the roads are mainly flat and there is a lot of country road to cover. Of course if you have a boat, you may bring it because there is a boat launch right across from the house and you can tie it up at dock right in front. Clare is 10 minutes north of the property and Mt. Pleasant is 20-30 minutes south.

        Resort

        Snug Haven consists of four cottages, each with its own unique configuration and rate structure. Peak season rates run from $225 to $500 per night based on the size of the cottage and occupancy; rates are lower Spring and Fall, making us affordable on any budget. Please call or email us for the rate for the cottage you want during the time frame you want it. We are also on Facebook. Or visit our web page for additional information. Our cottages are all different and, as a result, easily adapted to whatever type of vacation you seek: a romantic getaway, a family fun week, a fishing outing, or golfing with pals. We are also a pet-friendly destination. And don't forget we're just minutes away from off-roading at Rocks 'n' Valleys, games of chance at Soaring Eagle Casino, and internationally famous Cops 'n' Doughnuts. Three cottages have gas fireplaces; all have private decks; and all have a view of the lake, facing west. The ducks, geese, blue heron, and other wildlife are already patrolling the beach. In fact, we saw an eaglet sitting on the beach, perhaps learning how to fish. The walleye, panfish, bass, and musky are active and waiting for your lure. The resort consists of four beautifully furnished, modern housekeeping vacation cottages on all-sports Budd Lake. The largest cottage is called the Hideaway and sits on a private beach with its own dock and firepit. The two in front of the photo are the Lodge (L) and the Nest (R). They are somewhat smaller than the Hideaway. The Retreat sits back off the beach about 75 feet. Together, the four units provide a wide variety of sleeping options that can accommodate over 30 guests at a range of rental rates. However, because we are a small resort, the beach never feels crowded. In addition to four beautiful vacation homes located in a quiet, wooded waterfront area close to town, Snug Haven offers many amenities. We have a private 300-foot sandy beach with swimming area enclosed by our C-shaped dock and two firepits facing the water. Budd Lake is an excellent fishing lake containing panfish, bass, perch, walleye and trophy muskies. It's also an all-sports lake for those of you who enjoy swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, and diving. Unpowered watercraft are provided at no charge for guest use (kayaks, paddlewheel boats, and rowboats), and dock space is available for those bringing their own boats. Campfires and sing-a-longs are always welcome. Our vacation homes are furnished with many handmade Amish items and offer a perfect mix of lakeside features (e.g., pine and cedar interiors) with all the modern conveniences of home. All homes have lakeside decks, gas grills and picnic tables plus cable TV, limited Wi-Fi access, AC, and full-size kitchens. We provide bedding and towels. Some cottages have laundry facilities and gas fireplaces. Each is different to allow us to accommodate many different types of groups: honeymooners, families with young children, families with teenagers, seniors, family reunions, and people with limited mobility. The Nest has a ramp to the front deck and an ADA-compliant bathroom on the main floor. Call us for more information about how we might accommodate your specific vacation needs. We're close to many attractions, including the Amish quilt auction (May 16-17 and in September), Rocks and Valleys (off-roading), and Soaring Eagle Casino. Snowsnake Ski and Golf (5 miles south) just installed a 3000 foot zip line for those who love to fly solo. If you're a golfer, you'll find everything you need from the Championship Pohl Cat in Mt. Pleasant to the water hazards of The Tamaracks, with many other beautiful public courses in between. Antique lovers will appreciate the stores in Mt. Pleasant, Alma, Houghton Lake, Saginaw, and Gladwin--all less than an hour away. Diners might try Camille's on the River (Mt. Pleasant) for a special night out and anyone with a sweet tooth will want to say they've been to the now world-famous Cops 'n' Doughnuts bakery in nearby Clare. Pubs and restaurants offering craft beers are easy to find, starting with the well-known local MountainTown Brewery. Local Amish bakeries make amazing cinnamon rolls and angelfood cakes. The resort is open mid-May through the beginning of October. We accept both Visa and MasterCard for your convenience (with a 3% convenience fee). Although our peak season is Summertime, Spring and Fall are especially great times to be here if you're into off-roading, fishing, golfing and other nonwater sports. We're close to State land for hiking and trail riding and just 10 minutes from Rocks 'n' Valleys for off-roading. The Clare County Fair is here each year in late July or early August.

        The SpaceThe cottage was built in the 1950s, its small but very nicely remodeled inside. The water is from a spring so it's delicious, everything works great. Everything in the house is fair game food, condiments etc... Guest AccessYou can have access to put a boat in but no where to leave the boat in the water over night. The access to put the boat in is just down and around the corner from the cottage. Kayaks can go in right across the street. Fire pit, gas grill are all for your enjoyment. I try to keep wood there but b/c it's not yet summer the supply is low. But your welcome to whats there Interaction with GuestsI'm also 10 minutes away from the cottage so if you need anything please call me I usually have my phone and if I am out of town during your stay I will let you know ahead of time. The NeighborhoodVery quiet in the winter months. Many people live in there cottages year round. Very friendly most know me as I have owned the cottage for almost 17 years. Summer months are a little different, many stay thru the summer so lots of activity, no wake on the lake after 7pm Getting AroundGas station Pohl's Market (friends of mine) with pizza, subs, beer and wine on the corner of Colman road and Winn. Groceries at Weidman IGA plus plenty of bars that serve great food. Corkeys in Beal City, Weavers in Weidman both have excellent food. No pizza delivery to the cottage. Other Things to NoteMy floors are getting completely renovated so the front entrance flooring hardwood is up but solid. Have a carpet over it. No propane heat this time of year but I do have an Eden Pure and space heater . Great water pressure and water comes from a fresh water spring so very tasty.

        The SpaceOpen concept (750 sq. ft.) with views of the river from almost anywhere in the cottage. The entire cottage was just remodeled this year. All appliances, furniture, and flooring are brand-new. Two private bedrooms both with locking doors (Extra sleeping arrangements for an additional person can be made using one of the 6 foot benches in the common area). Nice open flow to the kitchen with a microwave and new electric oven. Propane heat and wood burning stove as well as a window air conditioning unit to keep the place comfortable. 16x8 deck facing the river. There is also a small charcoal grill for your use. Two fire pits - by the river and in the front yard. Plenty of parking in the driveway. Guest AccessYou will have full access to the cottage and the property (except for the detached garage). Interaction with GuestsI am located an hour and a half away in Grand Rapids but will be reachable via phone. My next door neighbors Mike and Tracey (full time residents) will also be available to assist with questions. The cottage will be unlocked before your arrival. The NeighborhoodNice and quiet area with a mix of full-time residents and vacation properties. Getting AroundOne thing to note on finding the cottage (so you don't get sent the wrong direction): If you are heading north via M-66, you will want to turn EAST onto 19 Mile Road (just 1/2 mile south of the town of Barryton) and take it for two miles until you get to Oxbow Dr. Turn south (right) unto Oxbow and take it all the way into the development (Chippewa Vista) until you reach Deer Path Ln. PLEASE make sure to double check your directions. Some older GPS units and Bing maps will send you to another "Deerpath Lane" which is located 5 miles west of my cottage by the Martiny chain of lakes. That is NOT the Deerpath Lane you want to go to. Other Things to NoteThere is a coffee maker and filters available. Clean towels and linens are provided. Soap/shampoo/conditioner/toilet paper provided. Kitchen is fully stocked with pots and pans and cooking utensils. Dishes, silverware, and glasses provided. Electric oven/stove and microwave for cooking. Full size refrigerator. Firewood for campfires (to be kept within the fire ring) is onsite to use. If you need to turn on the propane heater but are unsure of how to do it, please ask myself or Mike and Tracey next door. IMPORTANT: If your cell phone carrier is AT&T or Sprint, you will not have service at the cottage. If you are a Verizon customer you will have full-service. There is not a landline phone at the house.
