About Dee Dee Nugent
About the owner: We live on the central coast of California. It's about a 7 hour drive away, with stops for the girls. My husband Joe works for a college and I am a Chef for a University.We have two girls, they both teach and coach water polo and swim, which keeps us all very busy. The girls love going to the lake. They have made great friends in the neighborhood that they snowshoe with in the winter and hike and bike around the lake with in the summer. We all enjoy going out on our boat. Having 2 launch ramps only a couple of miles away makes it convenient to get in and out of the water quickly. My husband and I, (but mostly Joe), have built 80% of this house ourselves. Joe's love for building has made this a true adventure. Sometimes through rain, snow and sleet, using all his vacation time and every other weekend for a year, Joe traveled to Lake Almanor to build our lake house. It has been a true labor of love. He has done such a great job, and we would now like to share it with others. If you bring your friends and family we're sure you won't be disappointed. There are so many great things to do here and you'll have a roomy, comfortable home to call your own during your stay. We're sure you'll make great memories here, as we have. Happy Vacationing! Joe, Dee Dee, Kamele, and Lily
Dee Dee Nugent purchased this House in 2006
Why Dee Dee Nugent chose Hamilton Branch
We fell in love with Lake Almanor in 2005, after visiting family that lived in the area. It's almost like being in Mayberry RFD, the people are so friendly and helpful, and there's almost no crime. Though we love living on the Central Coast we decided to build a second home in a small, 'four season' recreational area. We searched for this property for over a year. My husband Joe would drive up and scout around looking for the perfect place to build. We finally found what we were looking for with a view of the mountains and so close to the lake. The house was completed in the fall of 2008.
What makes this House unique
There are so many unique benefits that we enjoy while spending time at our property. Joe's brother designed the original plans for our house which we modified to accommodate our needs to entertain large groups of friends and family. I have enjoyed designing the big kitchen and stocking it with almost everything we could posible need to create a gourmet meal, with plenty of room to have the whole family get involved. For spending time indoors, we enjoy a great collection of family games, and movies for both young and old. When we feel like enjoying the great outdoors we play basketball in our huge driveway or sometimes launch the boat at the free ramp at Canyon Dam and spend the day fishing or tubing and skiing. We also love all the biking opportunities in the area. On one of our more adventurous days we 'lunched' at nearby historical Drakesbad and afterwards took a dip in their pool fed by the hot springs. Next time we may add a horseback ride, and then dinner and campfire stories. During the winter we snow-shoe right out our front door across the street and through the forest. We have also had the opportunity to go snowmobiling wth friends in different locations nearby. Our girls just love playing in the snow and sledding with neighborhood friends.
