Lakeport is a Californian adventure

A kaleidoscope of adventures awaits in humble little Lakeport. From soaring balloon flyovers of the Napa Valley to wineries that look plucked straight from the hills of Italian Umbria, whizzing jet ski outings to fishing charters, scenic drives to the redwood forests that tumble into the Pacific in the west to caving expeditions beneath petrified volcanos, there's bound to be something for every member of the troop. Lakeport vacation rentals are primed for it all – think hearty lakeside lodges with decks and BBQs, or cozy cabanas overlooking the undulating vineyards.

Lift off in Lakeport

Hot air balloons can be seen rising against the cascading fir forests of the Mendocino every morning, lifting lucky visitors over the sweeping hinterlands of North California and the rolling grape farms of Napa. Staying on solid ground – or even going under it – can be great fun, too. Lakeport is littered with trailheads and hiking routes, and has deep cave systems where the stalactites resemble UFOs. History lovers won't be left twiddling their thumbs either, because guided tours of old courthouses and the eerie monuments of Bloody Island could also join the itinerary.

Lakeport spills into Clear Lake

Find yourself a pad next to the town's premier attraction by searching for Lakeport vacation rentals on Clear Lake. This 68-square-mile haven of watersports and fishing is a veritable hubbub of life in the summer months, packed with boaters and bikers and sunbathers. To the north are great rises of the Mendocino National Forest, with their elk-filled plateaus and campgrounds. You'll likely need to pass the striking historical monuments of Bloody Island to get there, so be sure to stop to unravel that dark past. Meanwhile, wineries cluster to the south, from the Ceago Vinegarden to the elegant, Italianate Brassfield Estate.

Sun yourself in Lakeport

Just check out the wealth of Lakeport vacation rentals with big gardens, bobbing jetties sticking out into Clear Lake, or BBQ-ready deck spaces for the whole family. You wouldn't want all that al fresco enjoyment to go to waste, so be sure to book your spot here in the warmer months of the year. In fact, the summer, which typically runs from May to September, is when the bulk of the visitors make for the shores and streets of the town, imbuing it with real life and energy.

Lakeport is locked into the mountains and lakes

Lakeport is largely about bobbing boats on Clear Lake and the wooded banks around it, but there are other – more feral – Californian wildernesses here. You can strike out northwards to find the vast reserves of the Mendocino National Forest, carved by the glowing Sanhedrin Mountains and endless creeks and canyons. You can go westwards to the coast, to the roar of Pacific waves, and redwoods of the Jackson State Forest. Or, make the most of the local Indian Nature Trail out of Kelseyville, a showcase of Pomo culture, and the walks that weave to the summit of Mount Konocti.
