Tucked off of a nondescript road in a nondescript town, this lovely property is a great place for a fishing vacation or a quiet personal retreat. The cottages are comfortable, hotel-room size with fresh and inviting non-cluttered white walls and wood laminate floors. Tasteful splashes of color are provided in throw rugs and a comforter on the bed. The bathroom... More

We loved this place! I think it is the nicest accommodation on the lake. Cabins were spotless, landscaping was beautiful, other guests were quiet, and the staff was friendly and efficient. Best of all, it is dog friendly requiring owners to keep their dogs leashed. There is a small beach. When we arrived, the beach had debris and a big... More

From the moment we drove in the property we were delighted. Bob greeted us as soon as we walked in the lobby, explained the facilities and area and gave great fishing advice. He gave our room a quick double check to make sure everything was in order - including ensuring there weren't any bird poops on the chairs on the... More

This location, on Lower Lake , is a great spot for relaxation and visiting Lake County wineries and other points of interest around the lake. We stayed in Cottage 27, which has a deck over the water with a great view of that part of the lake and surrounding mountains. It has a full, well-equipped kitchen and there are charcoal... More

We enjoyed a wonderful visit in early May. We picked unit 27 which is as close to the lake as you can get without getting wet. The deck was a perfect spot for morning coffee and afternoon wine. Ducks come and go; sun is bright and the world seems at peace. Accommodations were very comfortable and the staff was great.... More

The new manager they have name Bob withheld my deposits of $91.00 because he said I smoke in the room. I told him that their microwave oven was malfunctioning.

Dear Devi: At Clear Lake Cottages and Marina we take our non-smoking policy seriously, and the vast majority of our guests appreciate the fact that we do. When our non-smoking policy is not adhered to, we incur a great expense to deep clean the room in order to eliminate the smoke smell. That is why we enforce our written non-smoking... More

Generally disappointing: the website gallery presents a carefully selected set of images. The lake itself is pretty though the place of Clearlake is actually quite big so it doesn't feel like an especially peaceful place to be: there is constant traffic noise even when you are right by the lake. I had booked Studio cottage 27 which is the only... More

It's the cleanest and nicest place in Clearlake. The staff are the best, friendly and accommodating. Rooms are great and so are the boat slips, they even have power on the slips to charge your batteries. The grounds are very well kept and the fishing is awesome. Love the place
