The 'Lake House' is a four-bedroom cottage, situated beside a beautiful 450-acre lake in the Sierra Nevada foothills of northern California. The lake is surrounded by tall pines and majestic oaks. Rest and relax in a most peaceful setting, and let your cares melt away. Enjoy all manner of water sports, hiking, fishing, winter skiing, and nearby golfing. Feed the Canadian geese, or watch the deer.
The home is a very comfortable, fully self-contained retreat that is perfect for couples, families, and small groups of friends. The cottage has a large front deck overlooking the lake with a barbecue, fire pit (great for marshmallow roasting!), and comfortable deck furniture. There is also a wonderful swing located underneath the pines at water's edge. Guests may use the canoe, kayak, and small fishing boat provided or they are welcome to bring their own watercraft. Although the property is located in the Bear River wilderness area, it is not isolated. A shopping center is nearby.

I love Nature and my favorite setting is spending time at my cottage on Lake Combie. I am also a traveler and am happiest when exploring other cultures and distant locations.
I grew up in the South and my family had a 'Camp' on a recreational lake. My happiest memories were those at that lake when I was water skiing and swimming with family and friends. After moving to the West, it became my dream to find a 'California Camp' and give my own children a similar lakeside experience. We have now owned this property for almost 30 years and it is still my fondest place to visit. Now I have grand children with which to share this most special of lakeside retreats.
Nature! Nature! Nature! My favorite experience is awakening in the early morning and seeing mist rising from the lake. It is also wonderful fun to go exploring by boat and visit an area of marshland not far from the dam that reminds me of the southern lake that I so loved growing up in Louisiana.
