Welcome to the Incomparable Lakeview Retreat!

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!

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.

A fancy tree house with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing. From the drive up from San Fransisco, to our arrival, the entire trip felt like a dream. The pics of the inside of the house don't really do it justice. It's so cozy and there are a lot of great little design details, but of course the most magnificent thing about this place is the view! Even though temps were super cold while we were here, the view from the living room, upstairs room, and hot tub made this the perfect little winter retreat. I will be booking this place again in the Summer for sure so I can take advantage of the lake and the awesome deck space.

Amazing views of Clear Lake -- wonderful property !!

  • 5 of 5

We were in Lake County for the first time (coming from the Bay Area), and needed a place to stay for our sons' high school basketball tournament in Kelseyville. This property was absolutely perfect, and we were very impressed by the beauty of the area and the gorgeous views of Clear Lake from the house. Thanks very much !!

A fabulous experience.

  • 5 of 5

The two weeks we spent at this beautiful place were wonderful. A million dollar view of Clearlake & a hot tub overlooking the lake. We couldn't be more pleased with the acomodations. We plan to return next year.

Great views

  • 4 of 5

One of my favorite things about the property are the spectacular views and the starry nights! I've never seen so many shooting stars in one night before. The hot tub is a great addition after a long day and you just want to relax and star gaze. We took advantage of the complimentary wine tastings offered and even bought a bottle, very reasonably priced $19 for some high quality wine. Highly recommend this property!

About Bill

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.

Bill purchased this chateau / country house in 1996

Why Bill 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.
