Sweet Home

  • 3 of 5

The Dome House was a fun alternative to the traditional vacation property. Very clean and well maintained. Best for families as two bedrooms are loft-style and more open to each other. Road leading to the house was a bit rough but still easily passable. Nice view of the lake. Harvey was terrific to work with. Always responsive to questions and offered great advice for enjoying the area.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the stay and appreciate how easy it was to communicate with you. We also appreciate that you left our place in a nice condition. A little surprised about the 3-star rating though, as our photos and description of the property identify that the upstairs bedrooms are open. We also informed you about the condition of the last little stretch of the road, which suffered during the heavy rains.

The view was fabulous. Porch was nice. All appliances were nice. Enjoyed our family time playing games at the nice large table. House was large enough if you wanted alone time.

Great very comfortable family friendly house

  • 5 of 5

It was our first weekend vacation on the Clear Lake and we loved to stay in the house. Very clean, comfortable, perfect for family with kids. Owner got kids crib and high chair socially for us. There is all necessary stuff (kitchen, bathrooms etc.) You'll feel here just like on high quality vacation in the hotel. Also, you can hike, visit neighboring cities, and have rest on the lake. Highly recommended!!

Cozy house with great view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with couple of friends for 4th of July weekend and we had a great time. The house has a big porch with the lake's view. Enough parking space and a gas grill. We also used a community pool. Around 20 minutes to water sports and safeway. We had a small problem with the smoke detector which was false alarming continuously, but we took care of that. Harvey was very responsive on the phone and sms which was very helpful for us to ask any questions about the house or the area.

Owner's Response: So glad you guys enjoyed your time and found plenty to keep you busy! Apparently AT&T cellular service went down and our smoke detectors and alarm are connected to a remote sensing station. We didn't know that the smoke detectors would beep when they lose access to the internet, so thankfully we were able to help you deactivate while AT&T was down. Cheers!

From Lake County Visitors Bureau:

Known as the “Bass Capital of the West,” Clear Lake is home to numerous fishing tournaments each year from a variety of bass clubs that include Bassmasters, 100% Bass, American Bass Association, WON Bass, FL:W Outdoors, and more. In spring 2007, the nation’s top pro anglers smashed tournament weight records on Clear Lake during the 2007 ESPN Bassmasters Elite Series Tournament. In fact, ESPN recently ranked Clear Lake as the #2 bass fishing destination in the world. Other major species include the Sacramento perch, channel and white catfish, brown bullheads, white and black crappies, bluegill, and carp. Catfish are abundant and weigh up to 25 pounds, with average catches weighing 15 pounds. Clear Lake bass are some of the largest in California. According to ESPN reports in 2002, “No other lake in the nation can match these weights. The best part of Clear Lake is that you don’t have to be veteran tournament fishermen to catch these double-digit bass. In fact, just as many trophy bass are caught by anglers in small aluminum boats.
