Our local organization, The Lake County Land Trust, held our annual dinner at The Lodge on Oct. 11. It was absolutely fantastic. We held it during the day, so everyone was able to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Blue Lakes and surrounding mountains. The venue is lovely, and the perfect size for our group of over 100 people.

This little resort motel sits on a beautiful sparkling lake amid mountains. It's so scenic. Get a room on the lakeside to enjoy both the evening and morning light on the lake. This place is so serene and tranquil. Kayak, cruise the lake in an electric boat, fish, swim, play on the rope swing, or just relax in the lawn... More

I've stayed here many times, this is one of the nicest places I've been. The calmness and serenity of this amazing place is unbelievable. Rooms are clean, owners are always there to make sure everyone are happy and meets everybody's needs. I would definitely go back here.

This was a lovely hotel right on a beautiful crystal clear lake. I wish we could have stayed longer. Such a beautiful, peaceful spot and convenient to some of the area's nice vineyards. The manager was very friendly and helpful.

Great man - the Admiral and his fleet. Peter, you're a man's man. Hard working to the core. Attention to specifics and detail that doesn't go unnoticed. Those electric boats were something to behold and what a fun way to enjoy the beauty of the 'truly' Blue Lakes. Pet friendly, people friendly, great rooms, a free breakfast that rivals or... More

We have been on the road for three weeks from Colorado, heading for the Redwood Forest. Clear Lake is in the area, so we decided to drive through here, and found The Lodge over TripAdvisor. It seems to be newly renovated, our room was cozy, freshly painted, sheets crisp...like a super expensive B & B. Room size was perfect for... More

This place can't be beat. Clear water, lots of outdoor stuff to do, clean and comfortable rooms. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We will go back here! The owners talked with us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. Even brought us champagne on the dock. Free breakfast too. Hidden gem in California!

It is rare in today's day and age to actually meet the owners of an establishment face to face and have them go out of their way to make certain you are pleased and have everything you need. It didn't matter if we forgot our dog's water dish, they are pet friendly and were able to accommodate my forgetfulness; whether... More

Upon arrival they did not have record of my reservations, just the one I had cancelled via Booking.com (I had to cancel and rebook, because our travel date changed by one day, so when I rebooked I booked directly through their website so I could reserve a lakeside room), but luckily there were vacancies and we were still able to...
