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 Clear Lake

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!

Property clean & beautiful as pictured!

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this home for a large group. Dale's place was perfect for our family reunion. We had 13 people and plenty of space for everyone. The house is well kept and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Dale's beautiful photography adds the perfect touch to the walls. He was readily available by phone to answer any questions we had.The back yard facing the lake was a favorite place for us. Fantastic views and evening ping-pong tournaments coupled with a hot tub and large grill made each night a little slice of paradise. Having 2 kayaks and a large tube at our fingertips enabled folks to paddle around and enjoy the lake also. The Disney Family Boat Rentals is just down the road and we rented a pontoon boat and 2 jet skis for another great day of fun on the water. Ice cream every night from the little place across the street was a real treat too. This lakefront home could not have been better for our large gang. Thanks Dale!

Wonderful Vacation Home--The BEST View & fun on the Lake!

  • 5 of 5

We held our family reunion with 3 families staying in the house with infants to 80 year olds and it was great! So much space. Beautiful views of the lake. Kitchen area was perfect facing the water and all brand new. Inside there are two floors with many bedrooms...balconies facing the lake and again lots of windows. There was plenty of outdoor space with tables and many places to visit and rest. Dock in top shape also places to hang out. Kayaks, water ski vests, ropes, ping pong table--everything you need for fun and a hot tub too. Would highly recommend and we have been coming to Clear Lake for over 50 years. Did I mention you are right across the street from the Foster Freeze to get dipped cones? We are coming back every year--Dale the owner is easy to work with and very kind. He knows our cousin that lives a few doors down and you will be glad you booked.

What a beautiful house. Everything was super clean and was better than expected. Contact with Dale was superb and our overall stay fantastic.

We caught bass right off the dock!

Highly recommended.

Great place to stay for fisherman!

  • 5 of 5

Me and a few of my fishing partners rented the house for 3 nights to serve as our home base for pre-fishing and the BBT tournament. The house is in a great location (near a free launch), has enough dock space to tie up 4 boats and be able to charge them all. We were even able to keep the rigs parked on the street in front and at the local ramp without any issues. The hot tub was awesome for after fishing all day, the house was very nice inside and accommodated 8 people no problem. The owner is very friendly and accommodating and everything worked out just perfect for us. The sig others even had a good time using the property and the lake while we were out fishing. Highly recommend anyone with a large group, only watch out is the May fly hatch this year is amazing... if you do not like millions of bugs... might chose another time of year. :-) Tight Lines!

This place is a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for two families for a four day trip up north. It was plenty of room for the parents and all of the kids to have their privacy and own rooms. The kitchen and living room are both really large spaces that were comfortable for all of us to gather. Most evenings we enjoyed outside in the beautiful weather at the two outdoor tables. There is something for everyone at Clear Lake. We particularly enjoyed taking the stand up paddle boards and kayaks to see the wildlife along the shore. The sunsets here are magical, and the house has a beautiful balcony and hot tub right on the front lawn overlooking the lake. There is a small grocery store within walking distance of the house which was helpful for last-minute beer runs. Otherwise, it's a quick drive to a larger store. Dale was very helpful and he was available via cell when we had any questions. Clear Lake is peaceful and memorable. We will definitely be back here and strongly recommend it!
