About Lake County and Clear Lake: 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, 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 several local businesses. Clear Lake can be found in beautiful Lake County, approximately 120 minutes northwest of Sacramento and 120 minutes northeast of San Francisco. For thirteen consecutive years Lake County has 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 many fishing tournaments held here annually.

Our family has been spending time in Lake County since the early 1990s. We never get tired of exploring the many natural wonders that Lake County has to offer.

Christy and Dave purchased this house in 2006

We fell in love with this location the minute we saw it. Nestled in the hills just above Clea Llake with fabulous views and abundant wildlife, it's the perfect location for a relaxing vacation getaway.

My husband and I along with our 2 children rented this home for two nights. The property was very nice and clean. We still can't believe the rate. They could charge more. It was relaxing sitting outside as the sun set. There was plenty of room for the kids to play outside. The owners are nice and respond quickly to your inquires. We will rent this home or the one next door next year.

Great getaway spot

My husband and I were looking for a place to get away and relax but also focus on some important projects, and this place was great for both. It was nice and big, allowing us to each have space to ourselves when we needed it, and the full kitchen was perfect for keeping costs down. The Wi-Fi worked well, which was crucial for us! The place was spotless and well maintained; it's a great value overall.

We were a little surprised that the house is so close to another house on the same property (just a driveway separating them), but luckily it was unoccupied most of the week we were there, and this house's bedroom and living room are on the side of the house away from that driveway, so not a big problem. I wish there were bigger windows to take better advantage of the lakeview, but as is, the place is very private and quiet.

For those looking to enjoy the lake, note that there are only a few places where you can actually get close to the lakeshore, some of them a good 40 minutes away or more. There are some other good places for hiking in the area; check out the nearby tourist information centers for more info. Also note that it was VERY hot there in August, but the a/c worked well!

Owner's Response: Hi Amy, glad that you enjoyed the house and your stay! As you discovered, the house offers plenty of privacy from the house next door and there really are no other homes nearby that are close enough to affect your privacy. It is a very quiet, peaceful and private location.

Regarding lake access, the furthest lake access is 40 minutes away at the Clear Lake State Park as you indicate. The closest is just a 3 minute drive right in Clearlake Oaks where there is a boat launch, lakeside park/beach and second park on a small island with a foot bridge that is great for picnics.

There is a public marina, pier and park in Lucerne which is 10 - 15 minutes away (kayak rentals available across the street there) and great public access in Lakeport with a marina, pier, large public park/beach and playground which is 20 - 25 minutes away. Boats and kayaks can be rented in Lakeport.

There are additional lake access points and all are free with the exception of the State Park which I believe charges $10/day.

Anderson Marsh Historic Park is 15 -20 minutes away in the town of Clearlake and offers great hiking trails for outdoor and nature lovers.

There really are no locations around the lake that are not close to public lake access. We encourage our guests to check out as many public parks/beaches to find their personal favorites. You can drive around the entire lake in a little over an hour and there are plenty of great locations to explore.

Thanks again for choosing Heron's Nest for your Clear Lake vacation and we hope to see you back some time in the future!

Dave and Christy

Herons Nest

  • Submitted: Jun 5, 2012

The house was nicely secluded from the highway with views of the lake. It was very nicely maintained and very clean. The kitchen was well supplied and the appliances were clean and easy to use. The only two suggestions I would have would be to swap out the queen size bed in the bedroom for a king size (even replacing the dresser if necessary with a second nightstand); and updating the quality of the towels etc. The furniture in the living room looks nice but is not too comfortable to sit on for any length of time.
Owner's Response: Hi Sheryll, we're glad that you enjoyed your stay at Heron's Nest and the wonderful views of the lake! Appreciate your suggestions, though the bedroom is not large enough to accomodate a king size bed and we find that the dresser is appreciated by our other guests. The couches in the living room also function as beds and are quite comfortable to sit or sleep on. We provide plenty of sofa pillows for added comfort and there are two chaise lounges in the living room to stretch your legs out on for comfort if desired. Sincerely, Dave and Christy
