Why Sheila Long chose Clearlake

We have lived in this home and raised our children here. We have never grown tired of life by the lake. The personality of the lake is constantly changing. Whether the wind is blowing hard and the rain pouring or the sun shining and hot... there is never a time when it is not a beautiful place to live.

What makes this house unique

It is a thought provoking serene place, even within the city, escape is close at hand by just relaxing with a friend or family member or enjoying the stars at night and Venus competing with the night sky over Mt. Konocti.

Great for our big group!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of friends rent the resort and had an amazing time. The resort has plenty to do inside and out and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The lake was great- we kayaked, swam and also used the dock for a ski boat rental. We cooked all our meals on either the outdoor stove, the gas grill, or the camp fire which was perfect because we spent nearly all of our time outside.

The town of Clearlake isn't great, but we spent all our time at the resort with the exception of visiting a couple of nearby Wineries and it all worked out very well.

Overall, very happy with the stay and would certainly do it again.

Good overall

  • 3 of 5

The living areas, patios and backyards, etc. are very spacious and the house has a ton of amenities for kids/adults; good for large groups.

The worst part was the sleeping areas - ALL bedrooms are very stuffy, very poorly ventilated(downstairs nightmarish), with hardly any air conditioning. At temperatures of 90-95, nights were spent tossing and turning, not quite the vac way ..

The house is right on the street, and the neighborhood is totally run down with poorly maintained parks, etc.

So if you're ready to spend all the time within the property, it can be fun.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the feedback Sudipta. All of the house has airconditioning and the downstairs Moroccan room has a dedicated a/c. I apologize for not pointing out how to use it. I have 24 hour staff available to all of our guests and regret your dissatisfaction. As to the City of Clearlake and our neighborhood, I raised my family here and my wife was a school teacher. Clearlake is a wonderful and diverse community.

nice stay, with some concerns

  • 3 of 5

Pros: We had a nice time at this lake house. The property has neat features like a hot tub, fountain, dock, and raised decks. We had 10 adults and 10 children and 1 dog in our group and didn’t feel cramped. We rented the house and 2 cabins. Bruce, the property care taker, was very nice and helpful during our 4 night stay. The house is old but unique inside and out.

Cons: The city of Clearlake, where the house is located, is run down and there are many vagrants roaming around. I would NOT walk outside this property at night. Inside the house, there are stairs that are quite dangerous for small children, so we put up baby gates. One of the cabins smelled like cigarette smoke. There was no central air-conditioning. Therefore, the small window units upstairs of the main house only cooled the kitchen, living room, snd dining areas. The units did not air condition the two upstairs bedrooms at night making sleeping uncomfortable. The downstairs units adequately cooled all living and sleeping areas. During the month of August, Clearlake water is gross on the shores due to algae but fine when you get away from the shore. Not sure I would recommend to a friend.

Wonderful memories made!

  • 4 of 5

The lake view was spectacular! There was plenty of things to do that kept everybody busy: pingpong, splashpad, pool table, campfire, jacuzzi, sleeping on the hammock, kayaking, fishing on our private pier, bbqing, volleyball, etc etc. Whitewater rafting was a 40 minute drive from the lake. The kitchen had all the utensils needed for cooking, plenty of glasses for wine and spirits. A perfect house for big families with children. The kids caught about 7-8 fish (catfish and bass) on the pier. What an experience for them! Just make sure you bring citronella candles and insect repellent. Lots of mosquitoes at night!
