This is the first time I rented a cottage at Clear Lake Cottages and Marina. I’ve been to Clearlake many times and have rented homes, hotels, etc. This is one of the best places to rent from. It is conveniently located near restaurants, parks, and grocery stores. An added bonus is that you can easily rent their pontoon boat or kayaks which was located directly outside of my cottage. The cottage was very spacious and the kitchen was stocked with cooking and eating utensils. My cottage had a front porch with a lake view. The property manager was very accommodating and provided excellent customer service. He made us feel welcomed. My kids also enjoyed the swimming pool which was set to the perfect temperature. The only unfortunate thing was that we only stayed for two nights. In the future I will definitely book a 4-5 night stay. Overall, this is a great place to stay in Clearlake.

This is such a great place to have a nice quiet weekend escape. Our stay was just amazing! The cottage we stayed in was clean, the other guests were nice and quiet. The cottage we had was a studio that was very well stocked with all the amenities for the kitchen and bath. The lake view is spectacular. We will definitely go back!

Bob and his staff were extremely welcoming to our family and went above and beyond to ensure that we had what we needed during our stay. Our family stayed in cabins 25 and 26 and they were clean and inviting. The cabins were wonderful and included a coffee maker for K-cups, a microwave and a mini-fridge, along with a table and 4 chairs, 2 queen beds and a flat screen tv. The offer a “no touch” check in and online digital signatures which made it very easy to check in and check out. I highly recommend this location, especially if you have a larger group and need more than one cabin.

The website and pictures show a welcoming and clean environment. But, don't let the website or pictures fool you for a minute. The owner is high strung, suspicious and highly innapropriate. Bob, the owner is very rude and condascending. I went here to visit family and celebrate my sons birthday with plans to rent a jet ski or pontoon boat which you can't do due to the lake conditions and they don't tell you the truth or that you should not get into the lake because it is a health hazard. Also,There is no privacy and you will be micro-managed and watched with all the cameras around the facility and I wouldn't be surprised if there were cameras or recording devices in the rooms. Also, this area is like a 3rd world country, very rundown shacks and methamphatime laiden community. I felt very unsafe there. Not to mention the smell of raw sewage. You can't spend time outside because of the stench and the Natzi watching every move you make. It does not make for a relaxing and friendly vacation. Do yourself a favor and pick The Lodge at Blue Lakes. You will thank me! Don't even consider this disgusting smelly 3rd world country. You cannot go in the lake or fish in it because it is considered unhealthy. You won't want to anyway because you will vomit from the stench. Good luck if you pick this place.

Cozy, clean, quiet lakeside cottages with great scenic views of the lake. We had #20 which is roomy and well situated with an unobstructed view of the lake. This property is pet friendly for a $20.00 per night charge. Be advised however that there is a predictable algae bloom which has a pungent odor...this is worse when it is hot outside.

We had to find a place to stay last minute in clear lake, and I am so glad I found the Clear Lake Cottages & Marina. We showed up right before the office was closing and they were so unbelievably accommodating. The rooms were nice and clean, and the views from the deck are incredible. Bob, the manager, does the most to make you feel comfortable and that you have everything you need. It is somewhere that can be enjoyed all year long. You definitely need to stay at the Clear Lake Cottages & Marina.

Our first visit to Clearlake (or Clear Lake) and we'll get the bad news out of the way first. The lake itself is subject to so-called algae blooms in the heat of summer, which means no swimming in the lake. Activities *on* the lake, such as kayaking or renting pontoon boats, seem fine. And there is a nice pool on the property for swimmers and/or pool loungers.
There are 27 cottages. 4 or 5 of them face the lake directly, which makes for a great place to sit; ours faced the lake. Most of the cottages seem to have at least a partial view from their porch. The cottages range in size and price, so review carefully when you make your reservation. I had no problem parking close to our cottage.
Cottages have good beds, a living and dining area, and a kitchen (important: see below about dining).
There is a modest daily charge for dogs; but we also received a nice goody bag for our pooch. Our porch had a gate, so we could let the dog off-leash on the porch. Again, check the description as this varies by cottage.
The office is typically closed (the check-in is "no touch"), but there is quick response to texts to the office number.
There are a few places to eat in town; nothing fancy nearby. A tasty Mexican restaurant, a nice coffeehouse, a good BBQ. The nearby Fresh Etc grocery store is well stocked for a range of shoppers, including those looking for prepared food. All in all, I can heartily recommend staying here.

Clear lake cottages is the best option to stay lakeside at clear lake. First class place ran by first class staff. Very clean and extremely accommodating. I have stayed at other places and will never stray from CCM again. Thanks Bob! Always a very satisfying stay!

It was a really busy weekend up there but we really enjoyed our stay there. Our cabin was right on the lake and overlooked the marina and it was nice. I would definitely go back again. The bugs were allowed to deal with. But the next time we go up I think will bring some barbecue bowls they had a bunch of grills that were ready for use and it might be nice to use the pool unfortunately the pool was closed

This is a nice little place to stay and is right on the lake. We arrived early but were still able to go to our room straight away. We had done all the check-in via text & email and they had put the A/C on so our room was lovely and cool. Facilities provided were good and the room was spotlessly clean.

We had been warned that because of the heat & algae the lake wasn't suitable for swimming in but they have a nice pool area which we had all to ourselves. Towels for swimming were provided in your room and we also had a little deck to sit outside our room. We had a really quiet, relaxing afternoon by the pool and the views over the lake are pretty. The staff we met were all friendly & helpful. We enjoyed our stay.

I would say that the Clear Lake area itself looked quite run down and shabby. We were only staying one night passing through which was fine but I guess if you are there to go boating or fishing it's OK, couldn't see there would be much else to do.

The Tv in the room we stayed in was a decent sized flat screen. I want to say it was 32-36 inches? It was good sized because the rooms are quaint, so any bigger might be too big. I didnt watch it when I was there as I was only there one night as well. I hope that helps!
