Pay It Forward is a year-round cottage with large windows that look out on the water from each of the living room, sunroom and master bedroom. The galley kitchen opens into the dining area with lovely pine floors, where there is a table that will seat eight people. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes an oven, cook top, fridge, dishwasher, blender, toaster, microwave and coffee maker. A cozy sunroom with futon and easy chairs leads off the dining area and is a comfortable place to relax when indoors. There is also a spacious living room with TV, DVD player and VCR, and a great view of the water. Two bedrooms are on the main level – each with a double bed. There is a bathroom, with shower, and a small office on this level as well. Upstairs the master bedroom has a queen-sized bed and an ensuite with a comfortable old-fashioned bathtub. Off this bedroom is a small sitting room with a romantic view of the lake, while a skylight in the bedroom ceiling provides a view of the stars above. For more choice in sleeping locations, there is a guest room with a double bed over the garage, where teenagers may enjoy their own space.

The water in Clearwater Lake is just like its name – clear and clean. The people who live and cottage on this lake would like to keep it that way and so ask that any boats coming to the lake be first cleaned well to prevent the addition of zebra mussels. There is a boat launch, with a strict rule of a clean boat bottom. Pay It Forward Cottage comes with a paddleboat and rowboat for your use. The large sandy beach with a shallow entry to the lake has a firm sandy lake bottom which is a real treat. Swimmers may enjoy exploring the nearby island to search for blueberries, and the lake offers various islands and bays to explore – much of which is undeveloped Crown land. A hammock, two decks with lawn furniture also face the waterfront to provide a choice of sun or shade. Pay it Forward cottage faces northeast so the sun is very strong throughout the summer after 11am and can stay that way until 7pm.
