When I checked in, I got an excellent rundown of restaurants, food, some recent fishing reports, and other tips about Clearlake. The cottage was well-kept, clean and quite pleasant to stay in - a small deck was a nice touch. The property stands out compared to other places in Clearlake - of the places I saw, this was clearly the...

Hi Pete: We try to give you the best total experience we can, realizing a getaway is more than checking into a hotel and hearing about policies, etc. We try to add a "Concierge" touch by finding out your interests and then making recommendations, whether activities, restaurants, wineries to visit, etc. We frequently visit the restaurants, wineries, etc., ourselves in...

I had a reservation for my family this past Friday at Clear Lake Cottages & Marina and cancelled it the night of. My brother was staying at a nearby property with his family and room opened up for us there. I cancelled knowing that I would forfeit my entire payment but was ok with that. The owner/manager explained the policy...

From the very first day to our last day.......an outstanding example of service, comfort and all-around understanding of traveler's needs.

Dear Kev and Trish: Thank you for your kind words! I strive to give people a great overall experience -- not just checking them into a room.

Tucked off of a nondescript road in a nondescript town, this lovely property is a great place for a fishing vacation or a quiet personal retreat. The cottages are comfortable, hotel-room size with fresh and inviting non-cluttered white walls and wood laminate floors. Tasteful splashes of color are provided in throw rugs and a comforter on the bed. The bathroom...

We loved this place! I think it is the nicest accommodation on the lake. Cabins were spotless, landscaping was beautiful, other guests were quiet, and the staff was friendly and efficient. Best of all, it is dog friendly requiring owners to keep their dogs leashed. There is a small beach. When we arrived, the beach had debris and a big...

From the moment we drove in the property we were delighted. Bob greeted us as soon as we walked in the lobby, explained the facilities and area and gave great fishing advice.

Hi Kathy: We're glad that you had a positive experience since you drove up to the property! We take pride of ownership in keeping the property and rooms very clean and inviting.

This location, on Lower Lake , is a great spot for relaxation and visiting Lake County wineries and other points of interest around the lake.

We enjoyed a wonderful visit in early May. We picked unit 27 which is as close to the lake as you can get without getting wet. The deck was a perfect spot for morning coffee and afternoon wine.

The new manager they have name Bob withheld my deposits of $91.00 because he said I smoke in the room. I told him that their microwave oven was malfunctioning.

Dear Devi: At Clear Lake Cottages and Marina we take our non-smoking policy seriously, and the vast majority of our guests appreciate the fact that we do. When our non-smoking policy is not adhered to, we incur a great expense to deep clean the room in order to eliminate the smoke smell. That is why we enforce our written non-smoking...

Generally disappointing: the website gallery presents a carefully selected set of images. The lake itself is pretty though the place of Clearlake is actually quite big so it doesn't feel like an especially peaceful place to be: there is constant traffic noise even when you are right by the lake. I had booked Studio cottage 27 which is the only...
