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 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.

                                                          A fancy tree house with an amazing view!

                                                          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 !!

                                                          Mark M.

                                                          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 !!

                                                          Beautiful and serene

                                                          Lakshmi K.

                                                          Thsnk you so much for sharing your lake house with us. It was one of the most beautiful and serene experiences. Our family is going to comeback again! We've thoroughly enjoyed the lake, beach and the Jacuzzi. Thanks for your continued hospitality!

                                                          A fabulous experience.

                                                          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

                                                          Hailey C.

                                                          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!

                                                          Perfect weekend getaway!

                                                          My boyfriend and I stayed for the weekend and loved it! I especially have to thank the manager who helped us at midnight when we got locked out!!! WOW, we are so sorry that happened but we are very thankful for your help! After arriving late and getting locked out, we were pleasantly surprised to take in the amazing view when we woke up the next morning. The home is in the best location and the views are perfect. The house is very private and quiet and has everything you need (including a bottle of wine provided by the owner!). We went to Lakeport to jetski in the morning and returned to the relaxing oasis to BBQ and enjoy the hot tub in the evening. One unfortunate thing were the ants in the home. They seemed to be everywhere. I understand that this is a vacation rental and it might be hard to control the ants but we had to get the vacuum out to clear off the couch so we could sit down but the ants would return quickly. Aside from that, the weekend was perfect and we will return! THANKS AGAIN TO THE PERSON WHO HELPED US DURING THE LOCKOUT!
