I came for business, had a glitch and Raj worked with me very well to assist and make arrangements. Raj is very compassionate and caring. The place is nice, older but great view and lake access, docks and fishing. Clean, very friendly staff. Close to great food.

This place is neither a B&B, nor an "inn". It's a set of five old "cottages," each with two or three rooms, clustered around an old parking lot. The front office is permanently closed; you have to walk next door to the Anchorage Inn for everything: checking in, checking out, issues/problems, etc. The "dock" is at the end of the...

I am a nurse who travels to Lakeport for classes at the local hospital every couple of years and have been coming to stay at The Mallard for a decade and a half. It is sweet and quaint BUT needs a TON of work--the previous owners were not able to keep up with all the repairs. I met the new...

Needed a place to stay for an extended period of time while moving. Management was great, gave me a better rate and the room (with kitchenette) was good. There are no really good lodging in Lakeport. Everything is a little dated, but the Mallard is my favorite based on charm. Too bad there was a drought and they chose not...

The room was small and basic, but everything had been thought out. Beds were very comfortable. The staff is first rate; very friendly and helpful. Great view of the water from the pier. We took the only available room with two beds that night, and it was a bit cramped, with little space for luggage. The wall between the two...

There is nothing fancy about Mallard House. We rented four "cabins" for two nights and will go back next year. The rooms are fairly small, except for #10, but they are clean. We had room 11, with a small kitchen. It suited our needs. The decor is pretty 70's, but everything worked. There was a flat screen TV, small table...

The Mallard House Inn located on the edge of Clear Lake in Lakeport, California is a peach. I can’t say enough positive things about this property, the location and the service. My companion and I booked The Mallard House on a whim. We felt we were taking a chance due to the low rates and a few less favorable reviews....

The man that checked us in was extremely helpful and even offered us a room upgrade. The cottage was a standard motel room with kitchen etc., was very clean but had thin walls. The view was amazing on Clear Lake with a dock leading out on the water. Would recommend for anyone passing through the area.

This is an exceptionally nice cabin type setup right on the lake. I have to say I would rate this with the 5 star hotels. My room is immaculate, The owner, a young energetic lady is among the kindest and most friendly of any host I have ever come across. Often you will find her working in the flower gardens...

We stayed 2 nights...Quaint old fashioned little cottage type inn right on the lake. We had a room with a kitchen and a little porch to sit on outside. Beautiful views of Clear Lake from the hotel property. The room was clean and comfortable and the lady at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Downtown is just a few...

“Ask for a room with a kitchen. Some rooms are just sleeping rooms (small). #10 has a big deck facing toward, but not on, the lake.”
