About Owner/Property Manager

My husband, Mark and I purchased this home at the same time we bought our family home on Clear Lake. We have lived in Clear Lake 32 years, 19 years on the lake. We have three grown children and two grandchildren, all of whom will tell you there is no place better than Clear Lake in the summer!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1999

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Clear Lake

We love Clear Lake and enjoy having our extended family visit us often. When we are not using this home for our guests, we make it available for others to use when they come to Clear Lake.

What makes this house unique

This home has a peaceful, relaxing atmosphere. We often watch the sailboat races on the weekend from the deck. The fishing is good off the private dock of this home.

Great Clear Lake Home

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful six-week stay at this great lake home with a location that is within easy walking distance of The Surf, farmer's market, downtown and restaurants. It is spacious, well furnished and clean with a well-stocked kitchen. Separate laundry room. Sitting on the deck overlooking the lake was a daily occurrence and being able to watch boaters, waterskiers, fishermen and windsurfers was fun and relaxing and a great place for a cup of coffee and a good book. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with and went out of their way to see that we enjoyed our stay. All in all, a fabulous and relaxing six weeks.

Girl's Get-away

  • 5 of 5

Eight girlfriends stayed at the wonderful home on Clear Lake. It was even more spacious than the pictures showed. We even managed to cycle through the one bathroom to get ready for our 40th reunion events. Lynne was very friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the lake. Walking downtown was easy and the golf course was really close. Everything was great - no problems at all.

Relax in shade on the deck!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great family vacation here, the home is larger than the pictures indicate and very clean! LOTS of room in the living room and dinning room with nice furniture and GREAT views. Kitchen had ample counter space and having a washer and dryer by the back door came in handy. We made the lower level (an extra family room we didn't need) into our bedroom and had lake views to wake up to! Only one bathroom, it was tight but was updated and very nice. Had two small children so we blocked off the deck opening to stone stairs that lead to the dock. We were there during the week and it was very quiet and relaxing. Having internet was great. Owners were very accommodating, we plan on renting from them next summer. Would be a great place to stay in the fall with the two fireplaces. Lots of things to do in town and all the flowers around the city were beautiful.

Home on the lake with a nice deck over the water.

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this property. It is a large house in a very convenient spot. There is a nice deck with a grill in the back over the lake. The family room is large and the furniture is quite comfortable. I wish the house had a second bathroom. It is difficult to get going for activities when 4 or 5 people need to take showers. The dishwasher wasn't working during our visit. We had to wash by hand the entire time. Overall we enjoyed our visit and would recommend staying here.

Great lake home for time with family

  • 5 of 5

Having family coming from out of state, we recently rented this home. The pictures do not do it justice. It is even more beautiful than the pictures suggest. After a long day of traveling, the stress and fatique melted away as they entered the home. Everyone slept great, as it is very quiet, and all had a fantastic time. The home is right on the lake and convenient to all Clear Lake summer activities. The owner is extremely accomodating, and we'll definitely be renting this property again when we have family in town.
