A New Retreat at Clear Clear Lake, A Uniquely Iowan Experience

Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and balcony
Find the perfect slice of Americana lake life in this newly renovated home on Clear Lake. No detail has been spared in creating this retreat for you and your loved ones to slow down, relax and make memories. The home features unique Iowa theming in each room. Enjoy the lake views from the Buddy Holly room, or enjoy the master suite with luxury bathroom, jacuzzi tub and screened porch. Whether you're boating, grilling, ice fishing, cycling, shopping, Netflixing, crafting or by the campfire (or fireplace) at night; this is where memories are made.

Besides the three bedrooms, there are couches and air mattresses for extra sleeping spaces. The updated and well-equipped kitchen includes a gas range and double oven and check out the wood carved map of clear lake in the redesigned dining room. If you need a desk for a workcation or quick meeting, we have a setup for that too with high-speed, stable internet.

For those bringing a boat, the home does not have a private dock, but you'll be minutes or a short walk from a public boat ramp or State beach.

The home is unofficially named Ron's Landing, after our late father who loved Clear Lake and spent many summer weekends at the lake with us.  We designed this space with care to be the perfect retreat for us and our families, so we know you'll have an unforgettable experience and love it just as much as we do.

Springtime Getaway
We had a wonderful time. The house was spotless and had everything we needed and then some. Ben made communication with him effortless and even made returning several items we left very easy. We would be very happy to stay there again!

Winter Trip
This was the first trip we've taken to Clear Lake for ice fishing. Made great memories out on the ice, and then enjoyed warming up in the comfort of the fireplace at night.

cute and cozy
We enjoyed our stay here, such a cute and cozy home with everything we needed for cooking and baking. Several spaces for visiting and game playing, while others watched the game. The open concept kitchen made everyone feel included and had plenty of room for dining and snacking. Beds were comfortable and fully stocked with plenty of extra pillows and blankets. The house is well decorated and architecturally interesting from the ceiling beams to the unique nooks and pocket doors. It's a fun house with something for everyone, looking forward to staying here again in the summer and enjoying the lake.
