Another year

Always a wonderful time at Alpine Lake. Have been coming here for many years now along with a lot of relatives who are attending the Loughry family reunion in Terra Alta. A serine cabin is a perfect place to stay. Thanks again for another memorable vacation Bonnie March.

Stay at Serene Cabin

My husband and I were very pleased with the cabin. We were very lucky to find Clutter Realty (by word of mouth from another satisfied customer). It was about 4 weeks before we were to go on vacation and had no plans, was able to get on the website and find the cabin that we wanted with the available dates that we needed. It was meant to be and we enjoyed every day that we were there. Thank you.

review of serene cottage

We absolutely loved staying here this would jave been given 5 stars except for a few minor issues. The bathtub was very slick when trying to shower and we had no direct tv service. We are supposed to be getting a credit back for that. Other than this i loved this place. I will definately stay jere again. I have been coming up to this area every uear for tje past 20 urs and this is by far the best place we have stayed. Heck i changed it to 5 stars because we had such a wonderful time here slick tub and ni tv and all. Deserves 5 stars

Serene Cabin

The cabin was exactly like we expected. It does need some bulbs replaced and grass trimmed. No complaints though. Another great visit to Alpine Lake.

We enjoyed the home and the community. The house was well equipped with all we needed for the kitchen. We are a dog family so we were very happy to bring our boy with us! Finding the dog park near to the lake was a plus. We were however disappointed that there was only one choice for renting with a pet. Thankfully this home was nice and met all our expectations.

Great weekend

We enjoyed our long weekend. Checkin was seamless, the house was very nice, and Octoberfest was fun.

Serenity at its best!

We happily returned to A Serene Cabin for our second visit and found it just as delightful. Our family had rented several cabins as part of a family reunion; it was a great experience. I would truly like to come again for a quieter visit so as to have more 'cabin time' to enjoy. We did have one concern - my 18 month old grandson, with the typical amount of energy, speed, and curiosity, dashed across the hall from one bedroom and closed the master bedroom door and pressed the button locking himself in - while we stood there helpless. We were able to get the door open with a credit card because, of course, trying to instruct him to open the door was a little too advanced for him to grasp. We quickly remedied the situation by putting towels over each of the doors for the remainder of our visit. If there was a key, we didn't know where to find it quickly. Perhaps that could be addressed with the rest of the info items on the fridge - which were a great help. Aside from a typical toddler incident -- it truly was serenity at its best. Enjoyed watching the deer with the little ones who were convinced that Santa was nearby.

We thought the Serene Cabin was very clean and had all we needed for our stay. Alpine Lake is very close to our relation in and around Terra Alta. Front porch bottom step should be re-designed as there is stone and one block for the bottom step. When wet they are very slick. This is the second time we rented this cabin and we were very satisfied with it and the value. Thanks Dave DeLauder Black Lake, Michigan

Had a lovely time at the Lake, as always. Enjoyed every minute of the nice weather. Really enjoyed seeing the deer come down to the window when we were making breakfast. Overall, we had a fantastic time.

A Serene Cabin

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the cabin in Alpine Lake! It was a perfect place to spend a long weekend...or even a week! The home was well appointed and had everything we needed. We loved walking and seeing all the wildlife! We would definitely choose to stay here again.

Great getaway

Stayed for the weekend. Great house with awesome fireplace and plenty of firewood to keep us warm on the chilly fall nights. Big front porch for watching wildlife. Easy walking distance to lake and top of the old ski slope for awesome views. House was clean and well stocked with utensils and other cooking supplies.

Clutter Rentals

We enjoyed our stay at Alpine (The Serenity Cabin). We have been renting vacation homes from Clutter for over 20 years now and have always been very happy and satisfied with their service and the homes we have stayed in!!! Thank you!! I would recommend Clutter to anyone.

Exactly what our family needed

Our family enjoyed the opportunity to be guests at the cabin. My husband & son have asked me to reserve now for our next annual trip a year in advance. We found restful beds, a kitchen stocked for basic meal preparation & thoughtful touches (novels & movies) throughout the home. The front deck is perfect for a morning cup of coffee watching the deer. The location is easy to find day or night & is convenient to the lake for fishing, (nice touch to have motion sensitive lighting on the deck stairs) This may be our new favorite home in Alpine.

Review of A Serene Cabin

We really liked the cabin. Having everything on one floor was nice and the layout of the rooms was great. Our only complaint would be the lack of lighting. There was really no place in the living room that you could sit and read. Having wifi was a definite plus for us. We have stayed in different cabins and houses at Alpine Lake and have always enjoyed them. 12/17/15 Clutter Realty writes owner will bring a lamp up on their next visit

Great Family Stay

A friend of mine met here for a long weekend with our 2-year old daughters. The place was perfect for what we needed. A big master bedroom that my friend was able to sleep in with her daughter sleeping in a pack n play in the same room. I was able to sleep in the room with one queen size bed and have my daugther's pack n play set up in the room with 2 twin beds. It was super nice that they provided a couple of starter logs and there was a ton of firewood outside. We stayed during the Autumn Glory Festival in Deep Creek and it was so much fun we're actually talking about making this a semi-annual trip. The highlight was the Great Pumpkin Race on top of Wisp Mountain.
