Clearlake Oaks cottage description
From within the cottage or on the wraparound deck you'll enjoy BREATHTAKING VIEWS of Mount Konocti and Clearlake, California's largest natural lake.
The North Shore Cottage is one of the very few vacation rentals with such a fantastic view that has NO CLOSE NEIGHBORS!
The cottage is a modest, unpretentious home but is very cozy and comfortable. (SEE OUR GUEST'S COMMENTS)
We are located on the North Shore, the Hwy. 20 scenic corridor of Clear Lake. The cottage is located directly off of and above Hwy. 20, The house is approx. 80 feet from the lake with the road between it and the lake.
Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck while watching the early morning fish jumping in the lake, along with an incredible array of birds. In the evenings partake in a glass of wine while enjoying the gorgeous sunsets, listening to music on the deck's outdoor speakers. Don't be surprised to see deer, wild turkeys and our resident jackrabbit feeding in the yard and hillside.
Should you wish to dine out there are numerous restaurants around the lake (you can drive around the entire lake in a little over an hour) or you might just prefer to stay in and prepare your own meal in our fully equipped kitchen.
Indulge in wine tasting at our many local wineries, or perhaps you might try your luck at one of the Indian gaming casinos, or visiting the museums and planetarium.
CLEAR LAKE IS GORGEOUS IN THE WINTER AS WELL AND A WONDERFUL TIME TO SPEND AT THE LAKE. Build a fire in the large rock fireplace, (wood provided) have a glass of wine or mug of hot chocolate, put on some music, (CD's provided) kick back and relax.
Clear Lake is approx 20 miles long, with over 100 miles of shoreline and hosts scores of bass fishing tournaments each year. Our property has no area to accommodate boat/boat trailer parking but there are boat slips available at very reasonable prices at the Holiday Harbor Marina in the town of Nice, approx 15 minute drive from the house. There are also numerous local fishing guides nearby providing bass fishing trips or just a day out on the lake.
There are scenic hiking trails at Clear Lake; the recently opened trails on Mt. Konocti, the Anderson Marsh State Park and Clear Lake State Park.
The nearest lake access is in Clearlake Oaks; a lakeside park/beach and another smaller park on a small island with a foot bridge that great for picnics. In Lucerne (approx. 15 min drive) there is a public pier and park and kayak rentals just down the street. There are also kayak rentals in Lakeport, which also has a large public park that hosts free outdoor concerts in summer months and an adjoining beach and playground.
If time permits, it is definitely worth taking an afternoon drive through the California Redwoods to the Mendocino Coast for the afternoon.

Jeanie, We were just delighted to be there. Your home is very comfortable, unpretentious, the air and the lake....very comforting. Thank you for such thoughtfulness in all of your touches. We really didn't know quite what to expect, and this rises way above our expectations. We want to become regulars! :-)
