I am a nurse who travels to Lakeport for classes at the local hospital every couple of years and have been coming to stay at The Mallard for a decade and a half. It is sweet and quaint BUT needs a TON of work--the previous owners were not able to keep up with all the repairs. I met the new... More

Needed a place to stay for an extended period of time while moving. Management was great, gave me a better rate and the room (with kitchenette) was good. There are no really good lodging in Lakeport. Everything is a little dated, but the Mallard is my favorite based on charm. Too bad there was a drought and they chose not... More

The room was small and basic, but everything had been thought out. Beds were very comfortable. The staff is first rate; very friendly and helpful. Great view of the water from the pier. We took the only available room with two beds that night, and it was a bit cramped, with little space for luggage. The wall between the two... More

There is nothing fancy about Mallard House. We rented four "cabins" for two nights and will go back next year. The rooms are fairly small, except for #10, but they are clean. We had room 11, with a small kitchen. It suited our needs. The decor is pretty 70's, but everything worked. There was a flat screen TV, small table... More

The Mallard House Inn located on the edge of Clear Lake in Lakeport, California is a peach. I can’t say enough positive things about this property, the location and the service. My companion and I booked The Mallard House on a whim. We felt we were taking a chance due to the low rates and a few less favorable reviews.... More

The man that checked us in was extremely helpful and even offered us a room upgrade. The cottage was a standard motel room with kitchen etc., was very clean but had thin walls. The view was amazing on Clear Lake with a dock leading out on the water. Would recommend for anyone passing through the area.

This is an exceptionally nice cabin type setup right on the lake. I have to say I would rate this with the 5 star hotels. My room is immaculate, The owner, a young energetic lady is among the kindest and most friendly of any host I have ever come across. Often you will find her working in the flower gardens... More

There was a small kitchenette, but the fridge was right next to the bed and the kitchen sink (pardon the pun) was flush with the bathroom door. varnish pealing off cabinets. a small table with 2 chairs to eat...

My sister made reservations for us to stay here 6/3 and 6/4/2014 while we went to our grandfather's funeral. I had traveled 2,300 miles away (and 2 planes, one delayed, and a rented car later) to get there. She had called the manager the day before to indicate that we'd be getting there late--as late as 11pm or midnight (due... More
