Owner info

Year Purchased: 1985

About the owner: I grew up in the South and as a child greatly enjoyed visiting our ' Camp' on the lake. Many of my happiest memories took place at the ' Camp' where I learned to water ski, canoe, and swim.When I came to California it became my most fervent desire to find a lakeside retreat where similar memories could be created with my own children.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Combie:
' The Lake House' is a one of a kind cottage that sits on a point overlooking Lake Combie. Thus various views of the water can be seen from most of the cottage rooms. Lake Combie is so close that friends can chat with one another while standing on the cottage deck and floating boat dock.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Lake Combie is a jewel of lake because it is semi private. What this means is that there is no public access and the only individuals allowed to use the lake are those who either on property on it, or their guests. The Combie Lake House has its own boat launching ramp as well as floating dock. Guests can use my canoe, kayak, or small fishing boat free of charge - or bring their own. Combie is a full recreational lake, but does not have the zillions of people like on larger public reservoirs. Its 450 surface acres are simply beautiful to see and enjoy!
