Welcome to the Incomparable Lakeview Retreat!

NOTE THAT HOUSE HAS BEEN OFF THE RENTAL MARKET FOR 18 MONTHS AND IS NOW AVAILABLE AGAIN!

BE SURE TO CLICK ON THE VIDEO LINK ABOVE!

Come soak in the hot-tub while taking in the MILLION DOLLAR views! You WILL NOT believe the 180 degree UNOBSTRUCTED EXPANSIVE LAKE panoramas from inside and outside this home. (no power lines, no neighbors - just you, the lake and mother nature). You feel like you are floating above the lake!

The ever-changing lake views are simply breathtaking and at night you will see millions of stars dancing above as you soak in the hot tub.This is also one VERY private house and deck with no adjacent neighbors. Sitting between two walnut orchards and a land reserve below, this property offers a unique combination of natural beauty and seclusion, yet it's only a minute from Soda Bay and 10 minutes to Lakeport. From your private deck you can watch the boaters, sailors, jet-skiers, drifting clouds, wildlife and deer, soaring hawks and spectacular sunsets.

Ideal for romantic get-aways, weekends at the lake and small family retreats. You are close to everything, yet worlds away!

This cozy, architecturally designed home is decorated with fine furnishings and art and antiques from around the world.

The house is stocked with great books, CDs, videos and DVDs, games....and, of course, we've got Satellite TV and WiFi Internet, 2 large flat screen LCD TVs, DVD players and VCR. Plug your ipod into the stereo system with surround sound (CDs and videos included).

Be comfortable year-round with air conditioning, central heat, a wood fireplace/stove, a washer and dryer, microwave, and filtered drinking water. There's even a screened-in family room to enjoy sunrises, sunsets and outdoor life without bugs!

Furnished with 2 Queen Beds and Double Futon. Ideal for up to 4 adults and 2 kids. There is a full kitchen, dining area, BBQ and a landscaped garden. A swimming pool is just a couple of blocks away. Golf course and marina with a boat launch and beach, are also within immediate reach.

Did you know Lake County is home to uncrowded and intimate wineries, great dining, golfing, world-class fishing and watersports....you may just prefer the local 'undiscovered' award winning wineries (such as Laujor Estates, Gregory Graham, Langtry Estates-Guenoc, Steele, Vigilance, Wildhurst, Rosa d'Oro, Abbott, Brassfield Estates, Ployez and Monte Lago).

FREE BOTTLE OF LAKE COUNTY WINE AND COMPLIMENTARY WINE TASTINGS INCLUDED WITH YOUR STAY!

ABOUT LAKE COUNTY AND CLEARLAKE

Clearlake is the largest natural freshwater lake in the State of California and second oldest lake in the world! Visitors enjoy fishing, swimming, sailing, wind surfing, parasailing, water-skiing, boating, and riding jet skis. There is a free boat launch right below our house and individuals can rent boats and personal watercraft from many local businesses. Clearlake is approximately 90 minutes northeast of San Francisco. For 15 consecutive years Lake County has had the cleanest air in all of California. Winters are mild here, generally 40s and 50s and Summer temperatures are usually in the 80s and 90s.

The lake itself is truly magnificent. It stretches nearly twenty miles in length and includes over 100 miles of shoreline. Considered a “warm water” lake, the bass fishing is unrivaled as witnessed by the 40+ fishing tournaments held here annually out of Thompson Harbor. The record large mouth bass caught out of this lake weighed a whopping 17.52 pounds!

About Peggy Kimiecik

We live in beautiful Lake County most of the time. I sold my Internet marketing company a few years ago and my wife wound down her successful art business. We have two daughters both married with children and delight in our 3 granddaughters. We are semi retired now but still keep very busy with our other vacation rental properties, family and service to our spiritual fellowship.

Peggy Kimiecik purchased this chateau / country house in 1996

Why Peggy Kimiecik chose Soda Bay

This was our primary residence in Lake County 20 years ago. We looked consistently for the perfect property in Lake County for over a year before buying. When this property came up for sale, we bought it immediately. We felt this was the most amazing property on the entire lake - and I can tell you we looked at 100s of properties. We love the privacy and immensity of the unobstructed water view.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Because the house is booked so heavily, we rarely spend time here. But we always come in the 1st week of May and prepare the house for the summer season. And we absolutely love our time here every year. The beauty and tranquility of this unique location floods your senses. Every hour of every day and evening the play of light on the water and sky effects you. Viewing the boats and watching the swooping birds above and the deer in our adjoining walnut orchard contribute to our enjoyment and appreciation of this unique setting.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Very clean house with spectacular views of the lake from two of the bedrooms and all public rooms. Highly recommended.

Wine Weedend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

With stunning views, this house offers everything needed for a relaxing vacation. After wine tasting most of each day, it was so relaxing to just sit out on the deck each evening. The kitchen had everything needed to prepare our own meals and the hot tub was such a great place to star-gaze each night. We'll be back as we're enjoying more and more of the wines and wineries of Lake County.

Everything perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Loved every part of our stay in this Lake view rental. It is peaceful and serene with everything you would need for a romantic stay. There were 6 of us and we worked it all out with the rooms available. One bedroom is smaller so for 6 people possible if a couple can squeeze together a little. Hot tub was amazing! We would highly recommend this place!

Truly gorgeous view

  • 4 of 5

My husband loved this house. The views are spectacular for sure. And, he loved the layout where there was a screened in porch for reading when it was cool enough. For me the house needs updating but after spending a few days you forget about how old the cabinets are in all the rooms because you realize that is the charm of Clear Lake. Everything is outdated and a slower pace. We loved Clear Lake. I do not know why anyone bothers to go to uber busy tahoe. The water here is warmer, much less crowded and half the price to rent boats or jet skis. The town of lakeport is not that far away and the drive is beautiful anyways. Disney jet ski and boat rentals are the best for sure. The owner of the house was hands off when we set that tone but you can tell he takes pride in his home because he was very particular about how many people were staying (they charge more) and other things. I just responded in kind and followed his rules and everything was great - shock the hottub, don't lose the keys, etc. We would come back again but are looking currently for a place actually on the water with a dock to bring a group of friends. Hidden treat!

Super clean and amazing views!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house. The decks and the outdoor areas were amazing and the house was very clean. Our only issue was it was an extremely hot day and the house was 90 degrees inside when we arrived. It was 3am before it cooled to a temperature we could sleep. After we got through that, we loved everything about it. There was a nice bottle of wine chilled and waiting for us in the fridge when we arrived. The community pool was nice (especially while we waited for the house to cool down). If not for the extremely hot house when we arrived we would have given 5 stars!

Wonderful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the view so much we didn't want to leave the house, except to walk to the nearby swimming pool. Plenty of comfortable seating outside on the deck, with shade.
