This is a great place to stay at. The cottages are all furnished with newer decor. It's very clean and it has comfy beds. The lake is basically right out your door. There's a beautify place to sit and relax by the lake. The staff is friendly, and accommodating.

Hello crazycatlady235: We take pride in providing our guests a clean, comfy room -- thank you for pointing that out. Relaxing on our grassy peninsula is part of the experience that sets us apart from the standard "box" hotels that are situated on a concrete parking lot rather than being right on the lake. We do our best to provide...

We stayed in room #17. It is a full kitchen and front lake view. The view is amazing, and the full kitchen really serves our need. It makes us feel totally relaxed and out of city. It's like having your own lake house. It will be great if you have your own boat or fishing tools there, then you may...

This place is a diamond in the rough. I travel to Clear lake for business on a regular basis and this is the only place I will stay. If they do not have a room available I will stay in Ukiah and drive (1) hour each way every day I have to be in Clear lake. Always clean and friendly.

Hello Loren: Comments like yours only make us strive harder to provide the service and overall experience that surpasses the expectations of business travelers and other travelers coming to Clearlake. We do hear similar terms as your description, such as "hidden oasis" in Clearlake. Our location -- directly on the lake -- with a grassy peninsula to sit in our...

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...

Hello califcajin: You hit the nail on the head regarding what we offer -- an alternative to the standard "box hotel with elevator." I, too, was a business traveler for most of my professional career -- high tech sales and sales management. I was on the road up to five days a week, and every standard hotel started looking and...

We had a great experience with Clear Water Cottages and Marina. It is definitely the best kept property available in the area.

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...

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.

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...
