Soda Bay house description

NOTE: OUR CALENDAR IS KEPT UP-TO-DATE!
Newly remodeled, charming 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home on beautiful grounds of 3 1/2 acre family resort. The perfect getaway ANY time of year! Curl up on the window seat with a good book by the stone fireplace on cold winter nights. On warm, sunny days, open the french doors and enjoy breakfast al fresco, or grab the kids and enjoy a game of volleyball on the front lawn!

The Cottage is just steps away from the lake and Resort's private dock and pier. There are great views of the lake from the front porch, covered porch off master bedroom, and most rooms of the cottage.

At the center of the resort is a Rec Room where you'll find a pool table, large couch, TV, games, and dining table for an impromptu game of cards. Just outside the rec room and in front of Wake Robin is a big firepit surrounded by Adirondack chairs -- the perfect spot for s'mores, campfire stories, and a glass of wine. A ping-pong table, croquet, and other lawn games are also available.

On the beach, you'll have use of kayaks and a rowboat, as well as access to our private dock and pier, where our buddy, Andy, says you'll enjoy the best bass fishing on the lake!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Brian and I were both raised just 2 hours south of Clear Lake, in Marin County where we live with our two teenage sons. We also have an older, married son (my stepson), a lovely daughter-in-law, and two beautiful grandchildren, ages 4 and 6. We've been married for 25 years, and we've traveled extensively. We love all the seasons at Wake Robin, but late Fall is our favorite time of year.

              Why the Owner Chose Soda Bay:
              We were looking for a getaway, just a couple of hours from home, where we and our extended family could enjoy each others company, read, play board games, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors -- wakeboarding, kayaking, fishing, biking, hiking, and much more. In 2004, we and several other families, purchased and lovingly restored Bell Haven Resort, which has been in operation for over forty years. We completely renovated Wake Robin, a clean, bright, and cheery cottage with cozy furnishings and a beautiful view.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Wake Robin sits on Bell Haven Resort, a meticulously maintained, fenced family compound with six privately-owned cottages on a total of 3 1/2 acres. It is truly unique!
