Local Information

local Info

Stunning vistas, world-class wines, the largest freshwater lake in California, the cleanest air in the US and endless outdoor activities. Opportunities abound for hiking and exploring, such as on Mt. Konocti (our local dormant volcano) or at Clear Lake State Park. There are three nearby casinos, a variety of wineries, and even a planetarium in the area. The town in which we are situated (Nice) is less than a mile away, and has markets, restaurants, gas stations, a hardware store, a Dollar General, and so on. Tourists enjoy the rustic Main Street of Upper Lake, which is five minutes away, and Lakeport (the county seat) can be reached in about 12 minutes. Next door there is a lovely county park, with swings, slides, picnic tables, old growth trees, and more. For those with pets, not only are we dog-friendly, but there is a wonderful newly-installed dog park about a half a mile away.

Incredible Night Skies

The Milky Way is visible almost every night from March through October (as well as in a large percentage of the other nights, weather permitting).

World-renowned Fishing Destination

The only lake in all of North America that has been in Bassmaster's Top Ten lakes every year since that rating system began.

Canoes, Kayaks and Paddle-boats

We have canoes, kayaks and paddle-boats that our guests can use free of charge. We strongly suggest that you take one out in the early morning, when the water is often like glass ... it is enchanting.

Lakeside Theater

Movie night at our lakeside theater is an absolute treat, with the lake providing a captivating backdrop behind the movie screen.
