After a weekend here, you may just want to stay longer. That's OK... just call us and we'll be happy to extend your stay (if available).
The area is home to uncrowded and intimate wineries, great dining, golfing, world-class fishing and watersports. We're close to Robinson Rancheria Casino and across the lake from KONOCTI Resort and Spa (with a GREAT concert series). Nearby, you can catch a glider and fly silently over the Lake and the stunning Mayacamas Mountain Range.
And then, of course, there's our favorites...Reading, Relaxing, Eating, Napping, Sipping Wine and entertaining friends on the deck overlooking the lake!
And, in case you forget to bring your own entertainment...we have Satellite TV, SIRIUS Radio, a bookshelf full of unique books, a collection of great CDs to help you relax and an assortment of DVDs to watch. We also have binoculars, playing cards, dominoes, puzzles and board games.
There's so much to do near here... PERLA del LAGO is a lovely drive from Calistoga and the Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley where you can dine in fine restaurants, visit mud and mineral baths, shop and tour wineries...
...you may just prefer the local uncrowded and "undiscovered" wineries in the Lake County Wine Country (such as Jim Fetzer's Ceâgo Winegarden, Langtry Estates-Guenoc, Tulip Hill, Steele, Shannon Ridge, Wildhurst, Rosa d'Oro, Abbott, Brassfield Estates, Ployez and Monte Lago). In fact California just designated its newest Appellation in August of 2005 to the "High Valley Appellation" region near here.

There are plenty of trails in the area for Hiking, Biking, Horseback Riding and communing with the local wildlife.
There are excellent restaurants for dining in Upper Lake, Cobb, Middletown, Kelseyville and Lakeport. If you wish to BBQ or dine "at home", visit locally-famous, "Kenny the Butcher", up the road at the Lakeview Market in Lucerne for some of the best meats you'll ever eat!
ABOUT LAKE COUNTY AND CLEARLAKE
Clearlake is the largest natural freshwater lake in the State of California and second oldest lake in the world! Visitors enjoy fishing, swimming, sailing, wind surfing, parasailing, water-skiing, boating, and riding jet skis. There are 11 free boat launch ramps around the lake, and individuals can rent boats and personal watercraft from many local businesses. Clearlake can be found in beautiful Lake County, approximately 90 minutes northwest of Sacramento and 90 minutes northeast of San Francisco. For thirteen consecutive years Lake County has had the cleanest air in all of California. Winters are mild here, generally 40s and 50s and Summer temperatures are usually in the 80s and 90s.
The lake itself is truly magnificent. It stretches nearly twenty miles in length and includes over 100 miles of shoreline. Considered a “warm water” lake, the bass fishing is unrivaled as witnessed by the 40+ fishing tournaments held here annually out of Thompson Harbor. Professional fishing organizations such as BassMasters, W.O.N. Bass, Angler’s Choice, American Bass, West Coast Bass, and FLW, to name just a few, are regular participants. The record large mouth bass caught out of this lake weighed a whopping 17.52 pounds!
Lake County has some of the lowest prices for real estate within a short drive of the Bay Area. After you've fallen in love with the area and the low prices (compared with the Bay Area), give me a call and let me help you find your own 2nd home or vacation home.
