LAKE COTTAGE CHARM
LUXURIOUS AMENITIES

Buy Your Cottage Here

You and your family have always rented a cottage at the lake. You treasure the memories you have made there. For a limited time, we are offering our cottages for sale. If you have enjoyed a cottage at Clamshell Beach on the fabulous Whitefish Chain of Lakes, you will know why many guests have come to know this as their second home. The sandy beach, the heated swimming pools, the full service lodge, the Whitefish Golf Course, all the great area attractions … there are plenty of reasons people love to spend their precious vacation time here. When you buy a cottage here, not only do you get a great cottage and amenities, your ownership is part of an Association which takes care of the maintenance. When you buy a cottage, you don’t want another home to maintain.

Why This is Sensible Ownership

Today, people are focusing more on “how to experience life” and less about how many toys you can accumulate. When you buy a cottage at Clamshell Beach, you buy a deeded fraction of a cottage. Therefore, you can enjoy just the right amount of time at the lake. When you are at the lake, you want to relax. At Clamshell Beach, you can own a deeded fraction of a cottage which is owned just like other real estate AND it is professionally maintained. You don’t have to mow the grass, plow the snow, or put the docks in. After all, there is no satisfaction in maintaining an underutilized luxury asset.

Why This is Sensible Ownership

Owning a cottage at the lake is a dream for all of us. Figuring out the right way to make that dream a reality is what deeded fractional ownership is all about. Owning 100% of an expensive luxury asset – like a cottage on the Whitefish Chain – is not the best use of your money. Did you know that according to the National Association of Realtors, the average vacation homeowner typically spends only 39 day at their vacation home and at most average around 55 days per year.* Today, people are focusing more on “how to experience life” and less about how many toys you can accumulate. There is no satisfaction in maintaining an underutilized luxury asset. When you buy a cottage at Clamshell Beach, you buy a deeded fraction of a cottage. Therefore, you can enjoy just the right amount of time at the lake. A cottage at Clamshell Beach has more amenities than when you buy a traditional whole ownership lake cottage. Heated swimming pools, watercraft rentals, a full service lodge and more. Plus, because you’ve only bought the time you need, you will have the financial freedom to do other things with your spare time and money. A fractional cottage lets you have pride of ownership and investment potential but the costs are divided amongst all the owners – this brings the costs of ownership down. A professional resort management company takes care of the rental, upkeep and maintenance. Unlike full residential ownership – or even ownership among family members – all the details are taken care of. You don’t have to mow the grass, plow the snow, or put the docks in. The financial management of taking care of your cabin is all taken care of too. You just show up, enjoy every minute of your time and walk away when you’re done. This is what “the good life” is all about. A fractional cottage is fully deeded property and sold on a fractional basis. At anytime in the future, you may lend, rent, will, gift, or sell your ownership. We would love to tell you more about owning a fractional cottage.

You get a spacious floorplan – tastefully decorated and fully furnished – to entertain all your friends and relatives. You get a premier location on a perhaps the most premier lake in Minnesota. Your ownership is part of an Association which takes care of the maintenance, so you don’t have another home to maintain.You just show up, enjoy every minute of your time and walk away when you’re done. This is what “the good life” is all about. We forgot to talk about how affordable ownership is here. The property is fractionally deeded so you are only buying as much cabin as you can use. After all, most of us don’t have 52 weeks of vacation a year. This is much like buying a slice of pizza when you can’t eat a whole pizza. Buying only a slice of real estate also gives you the financial freedom to do other things with your money.
