About Kathleen and Dennis Krentz

Dennis took a break from building our second home across the street to renovate Clearlake Keys House, turning it into a place where we would enjoy staying. An avid angler, Dennis enjoys fishing the lake and the keys, and brings in the limit of crappie and catfish, as well as a few bass. Kathleen enjoys the break from her consulting practice to kayak the lake in the morning and to have a glass of award-winning Lake County wine while cooling her feet in the water at the end of the dock after dinner.

Kathleen and Dennis Krentz purchased this house in 2008

Why Kathleen and Dennis Krentz chose Clearlake Oaks

Clearlake Keys House is right across the street from our own second home. We're able to insure the house is well-maintained and ready for guests at all times.

What makes this house unique

We work hard to keep Clearlake Keys House in the condition we keep our own home and that our guests deserve. Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, Clearlake Keys House offers peace and relaxation, while only minutes from wine tasting and water sports.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" I stayed here with several friends in late April, 2009. It was a great place to stay and the owners were spectacular. Everything ready and they were more than willing to help out with anything we needed. We have since booked a return trip for the first week in May, 2010. I can't wait to return and have a great trip!"

Coming back!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at this place and we are coming back when possible. We went off-road (Jeep) to the Indian Valley Reservoir, was close to this place and it’s really fantastic experience.
