    We picked this because of it being on the water and it was very impressive. We didn't get to use the fire pits or anything due to it being chilly but we definitely enjoyed the view of the lake and bridge from our room. We...More

    Our room was large, comfortable and clean with a balcony right on the lake with a view of the Mackinac Bridge. The only drawback was breakfast. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to others.

    We enjoyed our stay at Clearwater. It was nice to come back in the evening and relax by the fire pits. We enjoyed the view from out room too. We would definitely stay again and recommend it to family and friends.

    A fire pit is nice, but a lie is not. It's fine if you first advertise that you are going to light our fire by the lake and then it turns out that you cannot do so due to staffing or other issues that are...More

    I've seen a few trying but I've never seen anyone catching anything. I've been told the fishing is good on the Cheboygan River near the dam. That's about 20 minutes south of us. Kim Phillips Owner Clearwater Lakeshore Motel
