Nearby are award winning wineries, hiking, golfing and a casino among other activities.

Lake County wineries are down to earth and friendly; people are approachble and the atmosphere is casual. There is quite a list but some of our favorites are : Six Sigma, Gregory Graham, Wildhurst, Langtry (First Lady Ladybird Johnson visited this site to view the wildflowers), Moore Family, Steele, Vigilance.

Lake County is also part of the world's foremost geothermal resouce areas. Since the 1950's geothermal develpment has grown significantly in the area known as 'The Geysers' in the Mayacmas Mountains near the Cobb Mountain area.

Lake County has something for everyone; rich in history, outdoor activities, wine tasting and of course just good old fashion relaxation.

Lake County is free from fog and boasts on average 265 days a year of clear skies.

Clearlake is the largest freshwater lake in CA (63 square miles and 100 miles of shore). Clearlake AKA 'Bass Capitol of the World' is estimated to be 2.5 million years old;oldest lake in North Am and possibily in the world.

Bald and Golden Eagles come to Lake County to nest each year.

Lake County has 'The Cleanest Air' certified by the State's Air Resource Board.

Lake County is the largest supplier of premium fresh pears in California; the first Bartlett Pear Orchard was planted in 1880's.

Mt. Konocti (visable from almost anywhere in Lake County) is sacred to local Indian tribes. When Mt Konocti erupted voncanic ash was found as far away as New York.

Four thousand years ago before the rise of the Egyptian civilization, Pomo Indians were hunting, fishing and thriving in Lake County. They gathered Tule Reeds that grow along the shores of Clearlake to make baskets, clothing, boats, dwellings and household items. Today Pomo baskets are widely admired throughout the West.

In the early 20th century Lake County drew hundreds of thousands of visitors around the globe to experience the natural and healing hot and cold springs . Grand resorts were built but sadly most were destoryed by fire and were not rebuilt.

During the World War II era the county was booming. People came from all over to dance and socialize enjoying big bands like: Tommy Dorsey, Xavier Cugat, Walt Tolleson, Harry James & Freddy Martin and Merv Griffin.

About the owner: In 2004, Brad & Cathy Anderson along with Karl & Mimi Bundesen purchased this Anderson Springs historical property. Wanting to preserve this piece of history, they renovated the dilapidated cabin from the ground up in 2008/2009. Mimi has been visiting Anderson Springs since the early 1970's, and she and Karl purchased a cabin of thier own in 2001. Wanting to share this special place with thier good friends they invited the Andersons up for a visit, and not long after that Brad & Cathy had a cabin too. Anderson Springs is a favorite vacation spot for both families.
