This beautiful resort is a standout in Clearlake. Great boat storage, super clean facilities, lovely landscaping,- with an open view of the lake. Pet Friendly welcome made our stay enjoyable and we look forward to returning.

We just stayed one night at the Clear Lake Cottages and Marina, and really enjoyed it. The cottages are really nice, clean and comfy. The staff is friendly and helpful. We were a bit worried when driving through Clearlake, as there are some really run down cottages/cabins for rent, and were delighted when we drove into this resort. We only... More

I was so thrilled when we pulled up the the Clear Lake Cottages and Marina. You could tell right away just from the sign and the landscaping that this was going to be a nice place to stay. I was not disappointed! Walking into the lobby the lady in the front office was extremely friendly. She advised us on different... More

As we drove thru the run-down town of Clear Lake (and having passed several grungy, sad cottage places), we were wondering what we got ourselves into with a stay at the Clear Lake Cottages. Imagine our delight and surprise wehn we pulled into an immaculate and landscaped parking lot for the Clear Lake Cottages! The place is a jewel, the... More

We are so happy you enjoyed your visit and your cottage! Cottage 16 is one of our most popular studio cottages because of it's great location. During most years we wait until Memorial Day weekend to open the pool because the weather is warmer, however because of the overwhelming pleas from our guests to open the pool early, we obliged....

Hey, if you are coming to Clearlake to find things to do, places to go and excitement, get over it. This is not the destination for you. Why do my wife and I love this place? In part is because we love Cottage #27 right on the water. In part it is because this is a sleepy little town and... More

This place caught my attention on a Groupon deal, so we tried it out with our family. Our cottage was beautifully facing the lake view, was clean, and staff very friendly. This was intended to be a first-time fishing trip for our little ones. Unfortunately, the famous fishing lake produced no fish on our trip (due to our novice fishing).... More

Thank you for visiting Clearlake and allowing us to be apart of your trip! I am happy you enjoyed your cottage and our staff. We have lovely views of Clearlake and the cottage you stayed in is a favorite. After reading your review I immediately went out to our lawns to inspect them. During the spring time we have 15-20...

I haven't lived in Clearlake since 1994 and I was dreading staying in the city. When visiting we had usually stayed in Santa Rosa. This time a family emergency brought me home and I needed to be close. I searched online and asked some local friends. This was the only place recommended and I was so pleased. The cottage (19)...

The Good: Clearlake Resorts and Marina is a charming place. The grounds are impeccable and the rooms are comfortable in a "less is more" kind of way. This facility appears fresh as it had a MAJOR restoration a few years ago. The staff could not have been nicer or more accommodating (For example, we had a mechanical problem with our... More

The Clear Lake Cottages & Marina were very nice but their is nothing to do in Clear Lake! If you plan on staying in the cottages during your entire stay than I would recommend this location but if you want to do something during the day or evening then go somewhere else....very disappointing. The surrounding area is high poverty not... More

Upon arriving, we were warmly greeted by the staff and given a tour to show us where everything was. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Our dog was greeted with open arms and provided with treats, a bed and a set of dog dishes. The grounds were well kept and the lake views beautiful. Highly recommend this place!
