I stayed with my 2 teen children - everyone loved the house and had a great time here. As we were in California to visit friends half an hour away, we had little time to enjoy the resort's facilities, but it was a wonderfully relaxing, peaceful place to stay in any case and it was a special treat to look out over the water at breakfast. There is the well-stocked Silver Lake Market along with a fine pizza place (Fratelli's) and other facilities less than 5 minutes' drive away on Vista Rd, and access to major routes is easy. We ended up with some clothing surplus to requirements at the end of the week, so I was pleased to find a Thrift Shop at the Helendale Community Centre, just by the rail-road crossing on Vista Rd - especially handy for international visitors who may feel their bags are getting a little too heavy for the flight home..! The property was well equipped, perfectly prepared for our arrival and made the ideal base for our stay. The owner responded swiftly and helpfully to enquiries at every stage of the process. I would definitely consider booking this house again if we come back to the area.
