We love this hotel for family getaways and return every summer. The location is great as a base to explore the lake and the view from the grounds is stunning. the cottages are clean and modern and the layout is cozy. The pool is a big plus for the kids as is the ability to fish from the pier or...

I was looking for an alternative to a hotel and the cottages met that requirement. I had a fridge and microwave, but not a kitchen. They were very nice and professional on the phone and on arrival and I was even able to check in early. Who knew it would be raining and high water during my stay...The only drawbacks...

We had a great experience with Clear Water Cottages and Marina. It is definitely the best kept property available in the area. It was awesome to be able to kayak right from the front door of our cottage. Bob was warm, friendly and accommodating, he was able to shift things around so that we could stay an extra night. We...

Hi Priscilla: We're glad you had a great experience staying with Clear Lake Cottages and Marina! We take pride in our landscaping and property. We have a full-time landscape engineer on staff, and we walk the property at least three times a day, in order to pick up any trash, cigarette butts, etc. We have just expanded our kayak fleet...

BEWARE! Any cancellation comes with a $40 fee, no matter if you have to make a cancellation within hours of your original booking. I guess the person processing the reservations is very busy and well paid. Yes, it is clear in the booking details,but zero grace period of even if its a few hours.

ClearlakeCottages, Manager at Clear Lake Cottages & Marina, responded to this review

Hello Joseph ("Ted"): First of all, thank you for your email stating that "I am very impressed with your website and your own resort reviews." Regarding your statement that "any cancellation comes with a cancellation fee" is factually incorrect. Please read a fairly recent review here on Trip Advisor where I did so. We work with people on a case-by-case...

Hi Lakeisha! It was a pleasure meeting you when you came and did a walk-through of our Cottages prior to making your reservation, as well as having you as guests at Clear Lake Cottages and Marina!

We stayed here for one night while looking at properties around the lake. What a delight! Brought our two small doggies with us. They loved the water and food bowls and the complimentary biscuits. Room was large and exceptionally clean - we stayed in the famous cottage #27. Comfy bed and very quiet area so we slept soundly. We arrived...

Thank you for your thoughtful review! We feel that "oasis" is an apt description of our cottages, as that is a description commonly given by guests upon arriving at our property. You can disappear here -- relax, fish, rejuvenate -- and have beautiful views of the lake, a local winery, and Mt. Konocti. We're glad that your dogs enjoyed the...

When I checked in, I got an excellent rundown of restaurants, food, some recent fishing reports, and other tips about Clearlake. The cottage was well-kept, clean and quite pleasant to stay in - a small deck was a nice touch. The property stands out compared to other places in Clearlake - of the places I saw, this was clearly the...
