Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
My wife and I bought this beautiful lot on Perch Lake four years ago after an extensive search, and it took two more years to find the right builder to transform Perch Lake Lodge from a dream into a reality. We are Bill and Jeannie Beaushaw, and we are career educators, teaching in the same high school, and residing in Pearl River, Louisiana, located on the northshore of Lake Ponchartrain in St. Tammany Parish. I taught social studies 33 years in the local high school, where my entire career was spent. In addition, I was the head girls basketball coach for 19 years, winning 64% of the games I coached and winning numerous state playoff games. My wife taught chemistry and biology for 11 years before obtaining her Masters degree in guidance and counseling, and she has been in that position for the last 20 years. She was a successful soccer and volleyball coach for several years, before resigning those positions last year. Our son, Derek, is a 2002 graduate and was our valedictorian. In addition he was an all-state cross country runner, qualified and ran the 2 mile in the state outdoor meet as a sophomore, and was a two time all-district second baseman on the baseball team, which reached the state semi-finals his sophomore year. As we have aged, the heat and humidity of Louisiana summers are harder to deal with. This is why we built the lodge. We wish to share this unique property until we can enjoy it ouselves. We hope you will feel as refreshed and renewed as we did when we left in early July.

Cabin on the lake
Very clean and just as pictured on the listing, great place for a quiet get away! The owner quickly resolved a minor issue we had. Would definitely stay here again!
Week of Relaxing!
Beautiful, cozy & clean "Up North" home and furnishings. Nice balcony to relax & enjoy the view over the lake. The housekeeper was helpful & quick with providing information when needed. Fishing was good. We caught nice bluegill, bass and a pike. We took a 30 min trip east to Gladwin and stopped at The Merry-Hearted Cidery and Fruitful Orchard & Cider Mill at the same location. Both were great! Awesome ciders, warm donuts & cute gift shop. We did have some difficulty when pulling our truck & boat into the half circle drive. It is a very tight turn & quite easy to hit a tree! We managed it with a neighbors help!
This is a beautiful home! The log cabin feel sets you in relaxation mode instantly! We loved the view! We were able to rent the pontoon for the day which was great as it was a beautiful day! This was truly a wonderful place to unplug and unwind! We totally did!
Perch Lake Lodge
My stay was twofold. The first 3 days was a girl's weekend with some high school friends and the next 3 was with my husband and 4 of our grandchildren. It was a perfect place for both. For the girls, it was so relaxing and quiet. We visited, floated on the lake, grilled, and watched movies. A great way to reconnect. It was also great with our grandchildren. They fished, caught minnows, had smores, played air hockey and ping pong, and just ran around being kids. No electronics for 3 whole days. The cabin is beautiful, tastefully decorated, and very well stocked. Articles were supplied that have never been in any other rental we have had. We have already booked for next summer. Love the place!
Beautiful log cabin
Love the house. Had everything there for you. Just didn’t like the location. Not a lot of things to do there.
Wonderful weekend getaway!
Our weekend at the lodge was wonderful! We only ever left for food!! The lodge is very cozy, clean, and the fireplace was perfect as the temperature was in the single digits during our stay. Jeanie gave us a call before checking in to see if we had any questions and after our arrival Bonnie and Greg who are the caretakers for the property kindly checked in on us as well:) I would absolutely recommend the lodge to anyone looking for a place to get away from it all. The town of Clare is only a 20 minute drive and the Whitehouse and the Timeout Tavern were GREAT places to eat. Also if you stop in at Clare make sure to visit Cops and Doughnuts for some wonderful treats!!
Soaring Eagle Casino in Mt. Pleasant is only 30 minutes away.
With more than 50,000 acres of state land and forest, Clare County offers the outdoor enthusiast a vast playground to enjoy nature at it's finest.
Snow Snake Golf Course - It´s beauty originates from the natural rolling terrain and tree-lined fairways carved out of a hardwood forest. When designed, special attention was given to retain natural hazards and foster undulating greens.
Eagle Glen Golf Course - Situated on 188 acres of rolling Northern Michigan terrain, Ray Hearn and Jerry Mathews of Matthews and Associates have created a little corner of Scotland right here in Central Michigan. Among the unique features of the course are bent grass tees, greens, natural wetlands, 70 bunkers and hundreds of mounds.
