LAKEFRONT HOME. SWIM/BOAT DOCK, SANDY BEACH. PET FRIENDLY.

Nice House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Hi. My home on Clear Lake in the town of Lucerne is quite a comfortable, private spot for a vacation. Activities while at the house include fishing, boating, water skiing, birding, swimming, wading, and mostly, for me anyway, relaxing!

The house built in 2001, sits beside Clear Lake with a swim/boat dock off the sea wall but also has a great, private beach where jet skis can be launched. The home consists of three stories. The ground floor is a bedroom with a queen bed and bath (including front loading washer/dryer). This room has screened French doors that open onto the deck (very romantic). Take the outdoor stairs to the second floor which consists of a kitchen, living room, dining area, TV area, den with a double bed futon, and bath. The kitchen has all the appliances I think you could want plus plenty of crockery and pots and pans. The third floor is a master bedroom loft with a King Bed, sitting area, and bath. Linens are provided.

All rooms have great views of the lake! Looking to the west from the main floor, you will be awestruck by the 180 degree view of the lake through the wall of sliding glass doors. Along with a great view on the other side of the sliding doors is an outdoor screened deck. What a wonderful spot to sit from morning into the night (the sunsets are to die for.) Similar to a cabin, the entire interior has natural pine paneling – the clean scent when you first walk in the front door is very inviting.

The entire property is fenced adding to privacy and security. There is quite a bit of parking within the fence (room for a boat on a trailer plus cars) with additional parking on the street. There is plenty of outdoor seating (chairs, lounges, and table) and a large, gas Weber BBQ is awaiting your culinary whim.

And if you are bringing a dog, the “critter corner” just inside the front door, provides dog bowls, cookies, dog beds, first aid kit, towels, exercise pens, and crates. The property is fenced quite securely for medium small to large dogs as long as they don’t jump over the sea wall for a swim in the lake (so far nobody has). Clear Lake during some years does get algea and weed growth toward the end of the summer (August). The spring months and early summer is absolutely gorgeous.

I hope you will choose to stay at my home. Many previous vacationers have said that my place is the best vacation rental they have ever stayed at in the Clear Lake area! If you have any questions, please call.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved your house. The new oven worked great. We had all our meals on the screened deck and many hours of playing cards in the evening. No mosquitos! What a treat. The beds were wonderful and the pillows soft. My husband and I sat outside with all the lights off and watched shooting stars. Our dog's nose did not stop sniffing. We're off to ski then back to foggy San Francisco.

Finally retired! Yea! I love gardening at my home in Santa Rosa and traveling with my trailer and 2 dogs. A few years ago that would have been 3 dogs and a cat but trying to slow things down a bit now. Part of the year, I enjoy coming up to the Lucerne house and just relaxing. What a great house! I love to have friends and their dogs come visit and I especially like it when there is snow on the foothills. I guess a little like Switzerland.

The Owner purchased this house in 2004

I chose the location because it is near where I live in Santa Rosa and I have friends that live in the Clear Lake area. It is such a beautiful location and so easy to get to. From my house to Lucerne, once I get on 101 there are no more stop signs. I just pull up into my drive way. Talk about relaxing!

Over the years that I have owned this house, I've discovered birds. Now I know about Grebes (they are the guys that pair up and run on the water). I have seen them do it multiple times right in front of the house. Herons and egrets hang out all the time on the swim dock. But probably the most exiciting was standing at the up stairs bedroom window and watching two Bald Eagles fly by. Yikes! That was exciting!

GREAT, RELAXING GET-AWAY FOR FAMILY AND THE DOGS!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the most incredible time here. Our dogs were so happy running and playing. There were 5 of us and we were able to spread out and really relax. We grilled out every night. The private beach access was awesome! We could walk the beach any time we wanted. We spent a lot of time sitting on the dock, fishing, swimming and laughing. Rooms are nicely furnished. It is so homey. The doggie corner with treats, bowls, etc was so thoughtful. Kitchen was small but had everything we needed. Loved the deck too. I am happy to say I caught a 9 lb large mouth bass right off of the dock! I enjoyed sitting on the screened porch every morning with my book and coffee. We look forward to returning here every year. It is truly a home away from home. The sunsets are just incredible. I am a photographer and had so much fun taking pictures here.

OUR 7TH STAY (MAYBE 8TH?) AT THIS GREAT GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Once again we traveled a few hours from the Sacramento valley to this oasis on Clear Lake for our Mom's 86th birthday celebration. It has become a tradition...one we love! We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets, playing cards, doing a jigsaw puzzle, great meals, and especially the Lake views that can be seen from every room on each of the tri-levels (well, except from the 3 bathrooms)! The kitchen always has everything we need...this time a pie dish.
Our pooch loved the treats, toys and large fenced yard and we enjoyed lazy sunny afternoons on the swimming deck. A huge plus was the full moon which reflected off the lake and lit up the mountains...just gorgeous. We'll be back for Mom's 87th! Thank you, Julee!

Owner's Response: Thanks a lot for letting me know all was good. I quite agree - that full moon is gorgeous over the lake, especially with the hills in the background. I'll be expecting you next year for the 87th! Julee

ANOTHER GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We returned to the Lucerne house again for the catfish derby. Found the house clean and in great shape as usual. We caught tons of big catfish and had a great time. House had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. MY son took 3rd place in the derby with a 17.19lb catfish. The Dogs also had a great time running the yard. Thanks we cant wait to return.

CHARMING HOUSE; RELAXING WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful & relaxing time we had. Lots of room for all of us and the house was very cozy. The kids loved being so close to the lake. We spent most of the evenings eating outside and star gazing and the days we spent swimming in the lake. Thank you Julee for allowing us to make some memorable memories in your home. We will definitely come back.

BEAUTIFUL LAKE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
My Family & I along with our little min pin LOVED this house!
When we first arrived there was 90-100 degree weather oustide and when we opened the front door ,it was very refreshing. The shades and windows were closed and the A/C was on high. The house was very welcoming. The kitchen had everything you would need. The little labels for the kitchen cabinets and light switches were very helpful too. The house was right on the lake so it was very peaceful waking up to the sounds of grebes. The yard is enlclosed all around so our little doggie could run around or lay in the sun. The house was extremely clean and comfortable. We found a fold-out table inside the closet and assembled it out onto the screened porch. We ate every meal there because the lake was so beautiful to watch. The grill outside was easy to use and we made lots of s'mores with it. The master bedroom was very spacious so my mom and dad shared it. The den was very cozy and was used by my sister and her fiance. There is a curtain seperating the den and living room so there isnt much privacy. But ,if you do want privacy there is a downstairs bedroom that my other sister and I slept in. Although i would prefer the downstairs bedroom have a different way of getting down there (maybe some stairs inside the house) you can get to it by some sprial stairs just outside of the screened deck. There were maps on the wall, activity brochures, books, games,towels, water bowls and food bowls for your pet, and complimentary doggie treats. The house was extremely clean and comfortable. The only problems we had were all the HUGE spiders and spider webs (we arent big spider fans) and that we had a hard time finding the instructions for the TV. (we decided not to watch tv and just relax though.) We also caught a 3-4 lbs. bass and a 10 lbs. catfish. We had such a great time we did NOT want to leave! We are already thinking of going back next year! Thanks so much!! -The Sharpe Family

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. The spiders are on the sea wall and it is illegal to spray poisons that close to the lake. We are experimenting with some kind of essential oils to see if they have an effect. We have hosed those spiders down and the next day, they are back! However, the house both inside and out does not have spiders (thanks to the bug man). I'll ask my property mgr to look for the TV directions.

Map

THINGS TO DO: Lucerne has many amenities including art galleries (local artists and craft people), and a beautiful, new public park. Spring brings farmers’ markets through out the Clear Lake area. Ceago is the closest winery just up the road but there are many more around the lake. Great hiking can be had at Cache Creek, Clear Lake State Park and Mt. Konocti. The Redbud Society conducts public walks every Saturday morning at the Rodman Sough. Clear Lake State Park besides nice for walks is great for birding (Osprey nest in the parking lot). One day I saw a River Otter walking across the park road no more than 20’ from the car. If you like kayaking, there is a kayak shop in Lucerne that will deliver a kayak to you. Open 7 days per week, the Lake County Visitor Center, located in Lucerne, provides a multitude of information. I’ve also put many brochures at the house for you to peruse hopefully, finding just the right activity.
