Top Reasons to Stay at Clear Lake Cottages & Marina
The cottages sit on the shores of Clear Lake; you’ll have fantastic views of the water from the property’s outdoor fire pit, kitchenette cottages, and shaded picnic areas.
The lake is a popular spot for swimming, jet skiing, and kayaking; a two-hour kayak rental for two is included with this Getaway.
Local and national bass-fishing tournaments are often held at Clear Lake, California’s largest natural lake. The cottages have a private boat launch, 10 boat slips with plug-ins, and ample trailer parking.
The renovated cottages all have 32-inch flat-screen TVs, free WiFi, and private patios or decks, and many have full kitchens stocked with utensils and dinnerware.
Guests can enjoy several hiking trails with views of the rolling hills of vineyards, redbud trees, and Clear Lake and Mount Konocti.
Many local, small-batch wineries produce their own olive oil and balsamic vinegar. One of these, Ceàgo Vinegarden, has marina slips available so you can dock a boat and head to the tasting room.
Lake County, California: Wine Destination near California’s Largest Natural Lake
Like its neighbors in the Napa Valley, Lake County is obsessed with wine. The nearby volcano, Mount Konocti, has helped lend a richness to the soil here, which has attracted more than two dozen wineries, many of them small. Some tasting rooms feature wooded ranches; another is a Mediterranean cottage you can access by boat from Clear Lake.
The geothermal activity of Mount Konocti is also said to help create a nutrient-rich environment in local Clear Lake. Partially due to this phenomenon, the lake produces larger-than-average bass; in fact, many fishermen refer to Clear Lake as the “Bass Capital of the West.” More than just fish enjoy the waters—during the warmer months, the lake attracts professional and recreational water-skiers and wakeboarders.
