Lakehouse Hotel & Resort - San Marcos, CA

Stay at Lakehouse Hotel and Resort in San Marcos, CA, With Dates Into December

Hotel at a Glance: Lakehouse Hotel and Resort

Fresh off a multi-million-dollar renovation and a name change, the Lakehouse Hotel and Resort is right on the edge of Lake San Marcos, a picturesque setting that begs to be explored. From the resort, guests can take a paddleboat or kayak out on the lake, or just sit in a colorful lounge chair and fish. On Friday nights, the hotel holds a cocktail hour with complimentary drinks for guests 21 or older and on Saturday nights, the hotel hosts a s'mores night for guests. A complimentary shuttle can take you all around the property, where you can also play a round of championship golf on a Harry Rainville-designed course or sign up for a private tennis lesson.

  • Relaxation in many forms: Two pool decks have jacuzzis, lounging hammocks, and fire pits for roasting s'mores
  • On-site dining at The Grill offers golf-course view, macadamia-crusted mahi mahi, and skirt steak that has marinated for 36 hours—you get 20% off bill with this Groupon
  • Natural spa treatments include seaweed mud masks and invigorating body wraps infused with milk and honey
  • Enjoy the view from recently revamped lakeside guest rooms, which overlook Lake San Marcos

San Marcos, California: Historical, Quiet Town with Popular Breweries

San Marcos is less than an hour from downtown San Diego, making it a quick day trip from such family-friendly attractions as Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo, home to thousands of animals, including rare giant pandas.

Though it's close to San Diego, San Marcos is a relatively quiet college town (home to California State University and the University of St. Augustine) situated in a valley surrounded by rolling green hills. For dinner, be sure to browse Old California Restaurant Row, which is lined with more than a dozen old-fashioned saloons and restaurants that serve Thai, Indian, teppanyaki-style Japanese cuisine. Restaurant Row also hosts a weekly farmers' market and a seasonal hot-rod car show. Guests can also visit popular breweries, such as Stone Brewery, which offers tours as well as a variety of beers to sample at the bistro.

The Lakehouse was beautiful, relaxing and perfect for a weekend away. I wish we had booked more days! The ameneties were fantastic. The staff was welcoming and very helpful! Word to the wise, if you want to go to Decoy at Dockside for dinner, make a reservation. We were disappointed that they weren't taking any more walk ins when we went!
