The Carriage House is located in Lakeport at Clear Lake - California's largest natural lake. We are within 2 hours of San Francisco, Sacramento and the coast and just about one hour to the Napa Valley; water sports, world class bass fishing and all sorts of outdoor recreation abound! You'll find many other things to do - visit nearby wineries, scout-out nearby antique shops, try your luck at the Indian Casinos or just relax at The Carriage House watching TV, reading or playing games. Whatever you choose to do, you'll return home refreshed. 'The Carriage House' is one of the best-kept secrets in Lakeport.

You'll find many other things to do - visit nearby wineries, scout-out nearby antique shops, try your luck at the Indian Casinos or just relax at The Carriage House watching TV, reading or playing games. Whatever you choose to do, you'll return home refreshed. 'The Carriage House' is one of the best-kept secrets in Lakeport. Located right off Main Street, 1/2 block from Clear Lake, The Carriage House is a quiet retreat with the ambience of a fine B&B. The Carriage House recently received a four pear rating by the Lake County Marketing Program's Lodging Rating System. Participating facilities were inspected and assigned a rating. The fundamental hallmarks of the 4 pear level include an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service and attention to detail. This upscale cottage shares the beautifully landscaped grounds of one of Lakeport's loveliest historic homes. Built by Herbert Keeling in 1906, the Carriage House has been completely remodeled to serve as a quiet get-away. We have fitted the 1200 square-foot cottage with period furnishings as well as all the modern amenities. Each of the two bedrooms has its own private bath. With its quiet downtown location, The Carriage House comfortably sleeps six and is perfect for family vacations, two couples traveling together, business travelers, or a romantic getaway. You'll enjoy relaxing or sunning yourself with a favorite book on the beautiful patio area of this romantic cottage. When you're ready to BBQ, you'll find everything is provided. You can shop for your favorite cut of meat at one of the nearby markets. There is covered parking for your boat and vehicles and a public boat launch is just 100 yards away. Other launching facilities are a few blocks away. Anglers enjoy fly fishing, bow fishing, sport fishing, recreational fishing, fishing derbies, and fishing tournaments at many lakes and reservoirs in the county. Known as the Bass Capital of the West, Clear Lake is the largest natural freshwater lake. Hike to the top of Mt. Konocti, our region’s volcano. From the top you’ll have a sweeping view of Clear Lake and on a clear day you’ll be able to see Mt. St. Helena and Mt. Lassen. More

inspiring, comfortable, clean, inviting, cozy and walking distance to the Lake and down town.
Spent another wonderful week-end with George and Cheryl Smith at this awesome retreat with much history and perfect location for exploring the lake and the town. Walking distance to good food and strolls through the city. Looking for a Holiday retreat this is the spot bring your turkey, ham and holiday fixing's as the Carriage house has what you need to prepare it, beautiful kitchen, dinning room and washer and dryer for the clean up..oh and a dish washer as well. Then relax in the cozy living room. (Choose a book to read from the in house library) Vary clean, quiet and comfortable when you book a room please tell them Mike and Robin sent you.

Charming Rental
I had the privilege of staying at the Carriage House for 10 weeks while on assignment in California as a travel nurse. It is a very charming and quaint rental. The owners, George and Cheryl, have thought of EVERYTHING that one would need while away from home. They are also were available for any questions or needs that I had during my stay. I highly recommend this rental for the Lakeport area.

We had two fantastic days at the Carriage House in Lakeport! The house is really nice, and the backyard is amazing! We could easily spend a whole day in the backyard! The hosts are so nice, and really reliable! We will definitely be back :)

Beautiful home!
What a beautiful home with everything needed for a very comfortable stay! We loved the experience and wished we could have stayed longer. Cheryl and George made sure we were well taken care of . They stocked the fridge and pantry with the staples and even gave us a box of home grown persimmons - which our kids were quite happy to receive!!

A great place to stay with lots of "extras"!
My husband and I stayed at the cottage for a few days while I was on business. The cottage is very cozy, and in a quiet neighborhood - perfect for the "down" time I needed after working all day. The owners stocked the kitchen with a variety of breakfast foods. There were also various extra toiletry items in the bathroom in case we forgot anything - definitely came in handy since I forgot my toothbrush! Having a laundry room was great so we didn't have to pack a ton of clothes to fly across the country! I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone staying in the area.
