By the luck of the draw, I stayed in the cutest and most charming place I've ever laid my head. During the Outdoor Writers Association of California conference, May 1st and 2nd, I was assigned the Featherbed Railroad B & B, (www.featherbedrailroad.com) in the upper Clear Lake town of Nice. Each unit was an old RR caboose converted into a comfortable room, complete with jacuzzi bath tub wine glasses, lounging robes and decorative touches.
Stretched out in the comfortable bed, I was lulled to sleep by the fountain outside my room. The lake was just steps away, and they have a few kayaks for guests who want to explore. There is also a pool and an old fashion swing hung from a tall tree.
Amenities include a private dock and beach with a boat launch, bicycles, ping pong tables, delicious breakfast, individual heat and air conditioning, coffee makers, cable TV with media player and movies. Rooms run from $140 to $220 per night.
Tony, the friendly proprietor, goes out of his way to make guests feel comfortable. The next time you're considering a visit to Clear Lake, give him a call at [--].More
