Guestbook comments from the manager

How can you not appreciate this view and this house? Steve is the point man and helps in so many ways. He went above and beyond just like last time so we felt like family. We can't wait to set up something for summertime.

A wonderful area next door, a park like area where your kayaks and dogs can easily go in and out of the water. We keep the bottom of our dock at least 2 1/2 feet above the water level due to the possibility of an afternoon breeze that can cause waves.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to the Lucerne from Los Angeles for a wedding and rented the Haven on the lake for the weekend with five adults. The house was clean bright and spacious with beautiful high ceilings and views of the lake patio and dock. This was one of the few rentals that felt like someone's home it was beautifully and whimsically decorated and had every kind of kitchen appilance (many dishes, griddle, pots and pans) that you could hope for, I think they had more things then I have in my kitchen at home! All the bedrooms were lovely and decorated with different themes the master bedroom was huge, more like a master suite with a very comfortable bed and large bathroom area. Steve, the property manager was very easy to communicate with and meet us promptly to let us in and check us out at the house he even gave us some tips about the local area. There is a small market right across the street that was very convenient for picking up little things we needed over the weekend. We so enjoyed our weekend at Haven at the lake and can recommend it wholeheartedly a lovely home with everything you will need.

Beautiful House on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Haven on the Lake was everything and more than described on the website. The house is immaculate. There is every possible cooking utensil you could need. The view from the living room and deck is beautiful. We were there on a weekend when the weather was cool but we managed to have a nice family gathering on Saturday in the beautifully maintained backyard overlooking the lake.

Pam was easy to work with and got right back to me when I called with a question. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a house on the lake.

Relaxing Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Attention future renters, you're in for a treat. The owners of this property take great pride to ensure the comfort of their guests. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by Haven on the Lake. So many great qualities- its beautiful landscaping, the interior's welcoming, clean, beachy decor accompanied by plenty of creature comforts, fun water toys and added security features, not to mention its wonderful location... right on the water! Hubby and I enjoyed the quiet (off-season) environment with a few days of kayaking, many gorgeous sunsets and the therapeutic waves of Clear Lake. We loved our stay and were also very impressed and appreciative for our super-friendly, musically talented host, Steve! The ONLY word of CAUTION I have for future renters is (for added security) TURN OFF WiFi in all devices while on property. Someone nearby (with skills) attempted to hack into one of our smart devices. Lucky for us we took immediate precautions after noticing the mischief. Even still, I'm here to say that we'd come back again in a heart-beat. Overall we had a VERY enjoyable, relaxing experience!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and what great 5 star guests you both were. Thank you so much for giving us a head's up on the WiFi situation. Our password hasn't been changed in years and we never dreamed someone could do that. I think I am showing our age! We have now changed our password and are planning on changing it on a regular basis:-)

Beautiful Home 5 Stars

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and everything you need in the kitchen is there. Pam was easy to communicate with. And our Host Steve took the time to show us all the amenities available in the home when we checked in. Large flat screen TV's, plenty of bath towels, everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Thank you Pam and Steve. We'll be back again in the spring.

"Haven on the Lake" review

  • 4 of 5

Dear Michael and Pam,

We rented your home from September 8-12, 2016 and we enjoyed your home very much. We were met by your property agent Steve and just walking up the front walk let us know we made the right decision to rent your property. It is a very comfortable and well appointed home. As reported your property was so very clean and we told Steve and we ask you to please thank the housekeeping staff for cleaning so very well. The newlyweds really enjoyed the spa like feeling of the master bedroom and we all were so very thankful for the air-conditioning as the temperatures were in the 90's. We had 4 days of love, laughter, cooking and having a great time together. The kayaks were greatly enjoyed even in the 90+ degree heat. Thank you for supplying life jackets as well. The ramp in the park next door was indeed the way to get into the water safely.

The view of the lake from the inside on the house is stunning. We were sorry that the hatching of the millions of "midges" made it pretty impossible to enjoy being outside. They hatched the Friday night we arrived and the midges were everywhere for our entire visit. We could be outside for an hour before dusk but then had to go inside. No matter how fast we got into the door they followed. I was amazed that on Saturday morning literally 2 inches of dead midges were on the deck and patio door sill. Steve told us this is a common occurrence and it just depends when the midges hatch. We would have liked to know that this was a possibility as we had planned several meals for the grill and that just couldn't happen with the swarming midges. We are so glad they don't seem to bite but rather just buzz about your head.

Thank you for having the doggie barricade to the dock. Our dog has never been in water and if she had fallen into the lake it would have been very difficult to get to her quickly. You really have thought of just about everything to make your guests comfortable. We thank you and would recommend your home for those that enjoy having a great time together.

Most Sincerely,

John and Andrea Davis

Owner's Response: Thank you John and Andrea for your review. Michael and I have really tried to think of things we would like in a vacation home and implement what we can. Unfortunately bugs around a lake are very hard to control at times. We have a monthly service, the County, and in between the two of those we have purchased a $700 spraying system which we also do monthly. I am sorry you hit the hatching day on your arrival. It wasn't in our schedule for your stay :-( Fortunately it is only the summer months that sometimes experience these pesty bugs.

A Bit of History

Welcome to Lucerne, Ca, located in Lake County. Lucerne sits on Clear Lake which is known as the 'Bass Capital Of The West!' Clear Lake is a popular hot spot for spectacular water recreation sports including fishing, water skiing, boating, and swimming. There are several fishing guides in the area as well as boat, kayak, and ski rental outfits to help make your stay an exciting adventure.

Clear Lake is the largest natural lake entirely in California, and has the largest surface area of any freshwater lake entirely in California, the tenth largest by capacity. It is said to be approximately 480,000 years old by genealogists, making the lake one of the oldest lakes in North America and boy the fish prove that! The lake lies in the crater of an ancient volcano. Traveling around the lake you will see continuous mountain ranges, scenic byways, and breathtaking sunsets while visiting the many wineries and casinos in the area.

Relax and breath the fresh air! Lucerne, and surrounding locations around the lake, as having the cleanest air in California. Pick up your free vial of 'clean air' at the local visitor center in Lucerne.
