Sheila Long purchased this house in 1989

Why Sheila Long chose Clearlake

We have lived in this home and raised our children here. We have never grown tired of life by the lake. The personality of the lake is constantly changing. Whether the wind is blowing hard and the rain pouring or the sun shining and hot... there is never a time when it is not a beautiful place to live.

What makes this house unique

It is a thought provoking serene place, even within the city, escape is close at hand by just relaxing with a friend or family member or enjoying the stars at night and Venus competing with the night sky over Mt. Konocti.

nice stay, with some concerns

  • 3 of 5

Pros: We had a nice time at this lake house. The property has neat features like a hot tub, fountain, dock, and raised decks. We had 10 adults and 10 children and 1 dog in our group and didn’t feel cramped. We rented the house and 2 cabins. Bruce, the property care taker, was very nice and helpful during our 4 night stay. The house is old but unique inside and out.

Cons: The city of Clearlake, where the house is located, is run down and there are many vagrants roaming around. I would NOT walk outside this property at night. Inside the house, there are stairs that are quite dangerous for small children, so we put up baby gates. One of the cabins smelled like cigarette smoke. There was no central air-conditioning. Therefore, the small window units upstairs of the main house only cooled the kitchen, living room, snd dining areas. The units did not air condition the two upstairs bedrooms at night making sleeping uncomfortable. The downstairs units adequately cooled all living and sleeping areas. During the month of August, Clearlake water is gross on the shores due to algae but fine when you get away from the shore. Not sure I would recommend to a friend.

Wonderful memories made!

  • 4 of 5

The lake view was spectacular! There was plenty of things to do that kept everybody busy: pingpong, splashpad, pool table, campfire, jacuzzi, sleeping on the hammock, kayaking, fishing on our private pier, bbqing, volleyball, etc etc. Whitewater rafting was a 40 minute drive from the lake. The kitchen had all the utensils needed for cooking, plenty of glasses for wine and spirits. A perfect house for big families with children. The kids caught about 7-8 fish (catfish and bass) on the pier. What an experience for them! Just make sure you bring citronella candles and insect repellent. Lots of mosquitoes at night!

Great experience, will definitely be back!

  • 5 of 5

Everyone at Vista del Lago was extremely gracious and helpful all weekend long. I had a large group of 30 adults and we all had more than enough space for the entire 4th of July weekend. We will definitely be back, thanks again to Bob and Sheila!

Eclectic and wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this property for our annual mutual birthday getaway with family and friends! The home has numerous decks and lounging areas to read, talk and play games while enjoying the lake and views! The kitchen was large enough for multiple chefs to work and there are 2 refrigerators (one downstairs) for the shocking amount of food and drink we brought for just 3 nights! We especially loved the outdoor pizza oven which we used for two of our nights and the outdoor grill cooked our roast perfectly while the indoor oven was working on cheesecakes! The only slight oddity was that the 3 lower bedrooms were all connected to each other (you had to walk through the first and second to get to the third)... so no true privacy was available to those inhabitants! Also, the sole boat rental facility on the lake is a half hour drive to the other side... but if you had your own this would really be amazing with it's own dock and launch! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Lots of space for kids and dogs and all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Spring Break 2016 for 3 nights. 2 adults, 5 kids and 2 dogs and we rented the main home. Plenty of space and right on the water with your own dock. Everyone loved the hot tub, kayaks and pedal boat. Unlike other rental homes which charge extra for things like kayaks, this one had everything included. Bob was readily available for any questions. If we needed anything there was a store across the street and another grocery store in town only 3 minutes drive. We'll be back.

We had a pleasant and wonderful stay at this place

  • 5 of 5

This is a place where families can stay together and have fun. The owner (Bob) is an awesome guy. Very Kind and helpful. All the facilities mentioned on the website are available. The pin pong table was damaged so we couldn't enjoy it.

The location is perfect. You can spend all day just by sitting in the patio. Plenty of utensils are available in the kitchen for cooking. Kids enjoyed Pizza baked in the Pizza Oven.

I will recommend this place to all my friends and relatives.
