About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-12)

This beautiful, 1700-square-foot home is neat and spacious and fully furnished with all the amenities of home while providing all the natural wonders of a dream vacation at your finger tips.

The 20-foot by 20-foot, lake-side bedroom has a huge closet, ceiling fan, and elegant Thomasville oak chest, armoire with large TV, CD and DVD, matching bedside chests with brass lamps, gorgeous arched, spindled queen-size bed and French doors that open to the lake.

The second bedroom has similar furnishings with two queen beds. The livingroom has 2 queen hide-a-beds and the sunroom also has a queen hide-a-bed.

Enjoy a glowing fire in the living room while looking over the lake. This room opens to the sun room and kitchen to provide an open feeling. The kitchen, with four stools up against the breakfast bar, and the dining area overlook the lake and sport an indoor grill and provide plenty of room to entertain your guests. The sunroom is the perfect place to enjoy 180-degree views of the lake and absorb the wonder of Mount Konocti surrounded in pastel colors at both sunrise and sunset while relaxing on the love seat or hide-a-bed..

Enjoy grilling up your fish on the stainless, propane BBQ, as you view the lake and then eat under the covered patio only 20 feet from the water's edge. Catch bass and catfish out of your front yard. Watch the grebes dance, egrets hunt, and geese and ducks parade by. Look for blue herons, turkey vultures, cormorant, eagles, osprey, or even a muskrat or lake otter while lounging on lush green, lakeside lawn.

Wineries, restaurants, casinos, motorcycle trails, antiquing, grocery stores, gas stations are all within five minutes, yet you will feel like you own the lake with wonderful lake front privacy. With a hot tub, fireplace, air conditioning, a full laundry room with washer, dryer and wash basin, all linens and towels provided, a fully automatic, covered, lit boat lift with electrical outlets to charge your boat and hose to wash it off, swim platform with ladder and a jet ski lift, you will only need to pack a bathing suit, a fishing pole and a pair of binoculars.

Watch the glitter on the lake and count the stars while wrapping up an active day by relaxing in the hot tub. If you spend a week here, you will not want to leave.

About dale debruin

I'm a school teacher who loves the outdoors and the activities associated with being there. My 2 children are in their 20's and wish they could be here more often. I love it here, and try to be here whenever it's available.

dale debruin purchased this house in 2004

Why dale debruin chose Nice

I love to fish and water ski. This is one of the finest big bass lakes around and almost always has the glassy, calm water that I love to ski on, somewhere on the lake. The wildlife is incredible here. The white pelicans, osprey, bald eagles, egrets, blue herons, grebes with their babies, various kinds of ducks, turtles, otters and water fowl are plentiful on the lake.

What makes this house unique

Just having a cup of coffee sitting in the hot tub to watch the sunrise is reason enough for me to make the drive here. Being right on the water gives you a serene, calming feeling. In the summer, even though the sun is up at 6am and down at 9pm, it seems that there is never enough time. (to fish, ski, sail, go to the wineries, concerts, casinos, BBQ with friends) etc. Just sitting in a lounge chair in the lakeside lawn reading a book, or eating lunch or just staring at a sunset is a gift that makes you count your blessings.

Beautiful Lakefront view and a Peaceful Abode

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Lakefront home. As the pictures suggest, it is right on the lake. The house is very peaceful. Even the stores are easily accessible, just about 0.4 miles far you'd find a Dollar General, Chevron etc. The Sunset view are beautiful and we had a wonderful time taking beautiful pictures. The hot tub was something we enjoyed too.

Everything was great about the stay, except for a little note to Dale. The house surely needs some cleaning, including the linens and specially the kitchen ware. The bathrooms were super clean though :)

All in all it was a great stay. Dale was wonderful in being prompt with his responses and we still can't forget the great views!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. It always makes me feel good to hear that my guests had a great time at my lakefront home. I also appreciate the suggestions to improve the property and your experience. I will share this with the cleaners and personally check out your mentioned areas. To be fair to the cleaners, the guests usually have already washed and put away their dishes before the cleaners come, so that may be something they may not have noticed. I hope to see you back in the near future to enjoy this wonderful property.

Great time despite weather

  • 4 of 5

We were celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. He had all of his family vacations in Glenhaven and wanted to stay on that side of the lake for his birthday. While the weather proved absolutely dreadful, we managed to have a great time in Dale's home. We had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. The sunroom proved the best spot to sit and look out at the lake when the weather is horrible. The hot tub was a hit. We had a fisherman with us and he said it was great fishing from the lawn and dock. I told Dale about a few little issues and he was very receptive to addressing them for the next visitors which is always good to hear. We would for sure rent this place again.
