About dale debruin

I grew up in Wyoming Michigan, went to a small high school and lived 2 blocks from a small lake where we spent all of our free time swimming, catching fish and turtles and pollywogs. Our vacations were always a week or 2 in the summer at a lakefront cottage on Big Star lake in Baldwin Michigan where I learned to water ski and motorcycle on the trails through the pine tree and fern woods. So it was in my blood. I had to get a place on the water. And I love it.

dale debruin purchased this house in 2012

Why dale debruin chose Lucerne

This property is very conveniently located in Lucerne, surrounded by all the comforts of home yet when you are on the water front, you feel like you have this incredible lake to yourself. Best bass fishing lake around and wonderful wildlife is so abundant. I love to water ski and almost never have trouble finding some glassy water. Motorcycle trails are abundant as is live music in the summer nearly everyday somewhere on the lake. There's nothing like sitting in the hot tub with your coffee and watching the sun come up and then walking to the end of your dock, getting on your bass boat, pushing a button to lower into the lake and always have a chance for a record bass. Come back and ski, or if the wind is up, pull out the catamaran. Invite friends over for a lakeside BBQ. This property has it all and it's hard to leave.

What makes this house unique

Location is always a big factor in choosing a property and lakefront is the location I wanted. I also saw a challenge in improving the home to make it even more enjoyable.

Family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the house during our family getaway Christmas trip to Clear Lake. It had enough room/beds for everyone, 9 adults and a toddler. View of the lake was very nice and we enjoyed it very much. Kitchen was very clean, well maintained and spacious as well as all the bathrooms and bedrooms. Towels were also available. Cooking was easy as pots and pans were available, pantry was handy and enough dishes and utensils for everyone. The house is walking distance to grocery store and kids playing ground and the walk along the road is very nice with the lake on site. We also enjoyed watching the ducks, and the mountains from the backyard. Dale (the owner) was very accessible and quickly answered questions about the property and available amenities prior to our arrival. We all enjoyed our stay. It was great!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends went up to Dale's house to have a reunion, celebrate a birthday and enjoy New Years. The second we showed up we felt relaxed and peaceful on the water. The sunsets were some of the most beautiful ones we've ever seen, and and everyone was extremely comfortable in the house.

Nice place on the Lake

  • 3 of 5

First, it was very easy to contact the owner, that was perfect for organization.

What we like :

-the perfect location on the lake, 2 kayaks from the house, we use our paddle boards to explore the lake

-the boat ramp where we spent some time under the sun and at night

-the house is well equipped with all what you need to be confortable

-the ping pong table, the BBQ and the hot tub

-easy access to the water

-all decks were great

What is unlikely :

-it says 17 persons, it is 8 on beds & 9 on sofa beds. The house is great for 10 people in my opinion

-the direct access to the highway 20, noisy in 2 rooms

-the master bedroom is huge, comfy with nice view on the lake but if you like the dark at night to sleep, there is no blinds

-It was very pricy for Thanksgiving but I guess owner charge obviously more at that time, that's the market rule I guess

Conclusion : Nice house with amazing access on the lake, clean but pricy for what it is.

very nice and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Lucerne. The house is located close to restaurants and shopping yet feels very private once you are in the house or back yard. There is a lot of room inside with 3 different living room areas and a nice kitchen. The upstairs Master is very nice with lots of room and it's own deck. We would definitely stay in this house again.

Great place for entertaining

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house for entertaining. There were eleven of us sharing the house for a weekend of bicycling, food, wine, and relaxation. We found the kitchen well equipped, comfortable beds in the four bedrooms.
