About Lake County and Clear Lake: Clear Lake 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.

About Christy and Dave

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

Why Christy and Dave chose Clear Lake

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

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave & Christy,

We just wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our stay in Heron's Nest. It was a perfect place. Really well furnished, great views and it was so clean and inviting. We look forward to returning. We were especially grateful for the quiet the unit afforded us.

Thanks,

Nice property that is peaceful

  • 5 of 5

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.

More than we expected

  • 5 of 5

The "cabin" was more spacious than we had expected which was great. The property was very

clean and well maintained. We would definitely recommend this to our friends and family.

Firehouse Pizza was totally awesome. We may drive up from "The City" just to experience

it again. Best pizza ever.

Clean, neat, great quality and a great view! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the Heron's Nest and it was just as clean, neat and comfortable as before. Dave and Christy accurately and completely described its amenities and the surrounding area. They provided us with excellent and quick service across the country. You can't beat the view of Mt. Konocti or of a mountain bluebird outside the window in the morning! The cottage is pretty, affordable and a pleasure to return to at the end of the day. We loved walking at Anderson Marsh at two of its entrances. I recommend the IGA in Clearlake for groceries instead of the local mart. In summary, we have joked about being about to live at Heron's Nest comfortably and look forward to our next stay when we visit our family in the area.

Clean well organized stay

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was lovely. Very clean, well stocked and we'll organized. My husband was worried about dog odors when he saw the pet crates but no problems at all. It was wonderfully quiet off season. Only complaint is lack of view. No porch or deck to sit on and can't really look out the Windows because of their height. Such a beautiful view too. All and all, a great stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Susan, We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Heron's Nest! Our picnic table area provides a relaxing place to enjoy views of the lake and Mt. Konocti. We highly recommend that our guests take advantage of that. Trails in the immediate area also provide some fabulous views of Clear Lake. Regards, Dave and Christy

Relaxing weekend at the lake.....

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Heron's Nest. The house is extremely clean, updated and had everything we needed for our stay. Communicating with the owners was timely and all went smoothly with our arrival and departure. Waking up to the wild turkeys and view of the lake from the picnic table were some of the highlights.

Thanks so much Dave & Christy.
