Dorothy or Jim purchased this lodge in 2004
Dorothy and Jim were so friendly and the home was spacious. The pool was clean and we enjoyed riding our bikes to Camp Friendship where my daughter was attending camp. We will be back again!
They were very accommodating. Beautiful place to stay! Very nice couple to work with and made sure we were comfortable!
We had a wonderful time. It is a great place to get away from it all for a while. Ours was a mini family reunion and it worked out great. Very nice place we set on the deck by day and around the fire pit at night. Beautiful sunsets and lake view. Pool was nice and very shady yard.
Yes, this really is your own balcony/deck overlooking Clearwater Lake. The inside is spacious and neat--nothing fancy but everything you need, and nicely decorated in a simple and understated way. A couple of dings here and there to keep it real. (I still rate it 5 but if you care about such things call it a 4.)
Kitchen has everything you need. Air conditioning and wifi -- again, neither is powerful but both are adequate.
The real gem is outside. From the balcony we have seen the usual northern land and water birds, plus a ruby-throated hummingbird this morning and a Great Horned Owl perching on the cottonwood by the lake last night and hooting! A little green tree-frog hitched a ride up the stairs and sat next to me for a while. And see the sunset picture--taken from the deck.
The pool is heated and perfect for kids or laps (if you can convince them to give you room). There's a slide. No lifeguard, so under 14 requires adult (over-18) supervision--but there are chairs and chaise lounges if you don't care to go in yourself, and you can still watch the lake.
Small sand beach (from which I watched for meteors), playground, beautiful fire pits with benches by them (but beware the mosquitoes-- bring repellant for after dark!). Your own grill at the bottom of the porch stairs.
Boat rental nearby--rates posted on the refrigerator. Dock. Jim offered to take our kids fishing and provided gear and bait--that may have been because they had had grandkids here over the weekend and the gear was here, and it was very sweet of him. Dorothy took a photo and sent it to me.
There are also condos and A-frames in the Maple Hill homeowners' association -- this is the "lodge" -- and we have met nice people at the pool, both owners and other renters.
Annandale is 8 miles south, Clearwater is 8 miles north--Dairy Queen in each one! There's a lovely pharmacy/gift shop and a great market in Annandale.
Relaxing, beautiful, easy. A great price. Accommodating hosts. Room for us and our kids. I'm delighted to have found it and recommend highly.
We had a great time. The kids loved the swimming pool and playing on the beach. We rented a pontoon which was very close to the lodge and went swimming on beautiful Clearwater Lake. The weather was gorgeous, the views were beautiful, and it was a very relaxing getaway for the whole family.
We had a great time! Our boys (age 10 & 6) caught no lie over 100 fish, most tiny but they didn't care. When we weren't fishing we were swimming in the pool which had a fun slide. Boys can't wait to go back! Jim & Dorothy are wonderful hosts! Thanks for having us!
