Our stay was ok I will preface with that we only stayed 1 night and did not have time to use the lake We arrived around 10:00pm, maybe a little before

The office was shut down We had to call a ring doorbell to gain access to our room It might have said that somewhere when I booked, but I did not see it I was not looking for it though because I’ve never had someone not be there when checking in I understand that this is a small establishment, but it just felt odd It was also very difficult to hear what they were saying Plus all of the guests outside hear what room you are in if you use the ring It just didn’t feel like the best start Know that there is no food around so if you are coming in late, stop ahead of time We ate out of the vending machine for dinner which ending up working just fine The rooms are bare and to be honest, didn’t feel clean There were bugs everywhere in the bathroom, which I get We are right on a lake, but the towels had holes in them and we only had 2 big towels Under the bed was disgusting The curtains do not properly block out the light from the front porch There needs to be another shade This hotel worked for 1 night, but I probably would choose something else the next time I’m in the area The lake was gorgeous though That is the main selling point

the room was eautidul and clean All of the staff is extremely accommodating and friendly We felt welcome the entire time which made the stay super comfy

The boat rental was great as well The staff on the dock made sure to explain how to operate safely and even how to park it when we were done He was thorough polite and patient we will be back for sure! Thank you to all the staff

First time staying at the Lodge at Blue Lakes We always pass by this place every summer when we go to Fort Bragg We decided to stay the night and swim

The lake is beautiful The motel itself is over priced The motel lost power half way through our stay and operated on a generator At some point the generator was turned off the room was hot and we were left without water and a functioning toilet No reimbursement or future discount was offered I know some issues are out of the control of management but for the price we paid our stay was a very disappointing

This was a trip gifted to me by my fiance for my birthday This was fun and I enjoyed the quiet near the lake There is a pier exclusively across the street from the location to walk out on for guests

June and her husband were very gracious and delicious breakfast was served daily We stayed in La caboose for 2 days The tub was very comfortable and if you get the chance to drive around the lake that’s a good way to spend it a day

Bill Mulgrew

What a wonderful experience! The new owners Jami and David were friendly, professional and determined to be excellent hosts The property is serene and the pool spotless The savory breakfasts were fantastic

We stayed in the Casablanca caboose, which was very clean and a lot of fun Watching the movie “Casablanca” in the room was a treat I think this is one of the older cabooses, and it needs a little work to be “perfect” but we had no complaints at all We were able to tour a few of the other cabooses, and they were beautifully done and fresh in their upkeep A wonderful spot for a romantic getaway We will go back


Pulling up to this very unique B&B was quite shocking considering we spontaneously booked it without seeing all the photos first! General tip: I highly recommend doing this occasionally to keep your trips interesting After a bit of hesitation, we decided to check it out Meeting the very attentive owner June, and having her show us our room/car, we were pleasantly surprised how clean and accommodating she keeps her establishment

Needless to say, we unpacked straight away and headed over to fish for some cats or bass The unobstructed views of the lake make for a lovely backdrop for an evening stroll or enjoying coffee in the morning To top of our time there June made us the best homemade breakfast We very much look forward to staying there again and highly recommend you give it a go Cheers!

This is a great location with beautiful views of Clearlake I was able to drive through today and found their market convenience store to be open It looks like they are getting ready to re-open

This would he amazing as the location is phenomenal, and have an arena for concerts I gave this a 1 star only because they are not open yet Will definitely come and check this place out when they are open and give another review

Chris Wallace

Great view with great food and great service We were a large party of 10 We were seated within a reasonable time for a first come first serve basis

Once seated, Amy took our drink and food order and the drinks and food came quick Amy and the rest of the staff were very attentive We will definitely be coming back Can’t wait for the rest of the resort to open!!!

David Long

Marina Bar and Grill only review – Konocti Harbor Resort opened their Bar and Grill this past Memorial weekend It was a first great start and I hope to see improvements in the near future I could see that the staff present was overwhelmed, thus took us an hour to place our order and get it served

I found the well drinks watered down and small in size for price paid Going in we knew the faire would be simple, between us we ordered a cheese burger and fried chicken strips The meal was good in taste and proportions for the price, but would like to see a larger volume on the side condiments ordered Ran out of dipping sauce halfway through the meal I PLAN TO RETURN in high hopes that these beginning fits and starts will be part of the past with quicker service and a slightly bigger menu choice being offered Add fish Maybe local caught A Bright Future Ahead!

Lake County Oasis! We had the best stay in the Garden Suite From the moment we walked through the beautiful courtyard to our suite we knew we had found someplace special We were blown away by the spacious open floor plan, with a fully equipped kitchen, living room and awesome decor

The whole place was just immaculate – felt brand new The bedroom was super quiet and the bed, linens and bathroom were great We had a friend staying in the other ground floor suite and we could both just open our doors to the courtyard in the morning and enjoy coffee together at the dining table under the trees with our pups roaming around safely in the fully enclosed area A great brewery, coffee shop/deli, and so many cute shops are literally within steps of the suite There’s also a charging station for electric vehicles which is great A totally awesome place to stay – you won’t find anything else like it – we can’t wait to return!


Always clean, comfortable and each suite is unique Stayed in the new downstairs unit this time It’s modern and brand new, sometimes you can hear footsteps over head but motels are far worse

The Loft upstairs is an older suite where we stayed last time and has a smaller bathroom yet it’s quiet, has a very large living room, and overlooks main street We enjoyed both options! GREAT HOSTS! Anything you need, Kathy will get it to you ASAP! Brian is always updating the property to make it comfy as possible Including the new courtyard It feels safe as well as cozy And as for the price, it’s the best deal for miles around, trust me, I shopped all around We relax indoors often, it doesn’t have the motel feel, its a comfy small HOME setting

Katie Sutherland

I have been staying at Suites on Main during my frequent visits to Lake County over the last year I’ve stayed in all the suites except one, and have loved all of them The suites absolutely sparkle, and as I have had to travel by myself, I feel very safe and secure there

I love the peace and quiet of the back courtyard, and appreciate being able to see my vehicle from the windows from several of the different units I love these suites, and find them very comfortable I hope to stay at the suites for all of my future visits

Our stay at Reese Ranch Retreat was wonderful! The Villa was very cozy and our kids absolutely loved all the animals on the farm From collecting chicken eggs and feeding goats, to petting horses and playing with the adorable kitty Tripod, the whole trip was magical Catherine and Jimmy couldn’t have been sweeter, and it’s clear they take pride in people having a great time at the Ranch

Highly recommend for anyone looking looking for a fun and unique getaway set in the peace and tranquility of the countryside 5 stars!!

India Mendonca

We truly enjoyed our time at the Reese Ranch Retreat last Sunday morning The Reese Ranch Retreat was a joyous, unique, and magical experience for our little family We took our toddler with us to the Reese Ranch Retreat, and she really adored all the variety of farm animals on this ranch

We got to meet, pet, cuddle, and feed baby goats, cows, horses, chickens, and donkeys! Our tour guide, Amanda was absolutely wonderful, patient, and super sweet to us We all had a spectacular time at the Reese Ranch Retreat We HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS RANCH TO EVERYONE VISITING LAKE COUNTY, CA AND TO EVERYONE WHO RESIDES IN LAKE COUNTY, CA

Kirsten Williver

What an amazing experience at Reese Ranch Retreat! My family did the animal experience with Amanda, she was a amazing tour guide and shared so much information about the animals and was great with our two year old son, he’s already asking to go back If your looking for something fun to do I highly suggest booking the animal experience!

Angie & Craig and family are amazing hosts!! The campgrounds are clean and well kept! I love that the whole area is private and gated so we always feel safe with our kiddos running around Their beach area and swimming area are perfect for the kids and the docks are where the kids love to catch lots and lots of fish! Most of the guests reserve the same weekend a year in advance so it was nice to see some of the same people we saw last year! This is only our second year going there, but look forward to many many more years!

Jacqueline Blakely, ND, LAc

Wonderful and small family friendly intimate resort Beautiful property and the owners are helpful, accommodating, and it really shows they take pride in running an ethical family owned small business They have done a great job! Highly recommend staying here

I stayed in their RV full hookup sites Gated Safe Right on the lake All the activities for summer fun are provided Fishing, paddling, volleyball, grilling! Perfect Pulling a trailer was a little scary on the road in but my friend was able to pull his 34’ 5th wheel here with no issues Must enter from the West side!


Old-fashioned glamping on the lakeside, where every cabin and yurt has a **fully equipped kitchen** and homey interiorsWe booked the resort for a group workshop, and have been impressed by how gracious and helpful Angie has beenNote: cell service is spotty, and WiFi limited capacity

(This may be a source of frustration or a dealbreaker for people tied to their devices with an umbilical cord 😆)

Lovely tasting room with a porch overlooking the vineyard Very friendly staff who adjusted the tasting for us so we could taste some of their white wines They also make their own brandy (cognac) which we got to taste one of

The wines were all really good We could hardly decide which ones to take home Really recommend going here We’ll Be back!

Alissa Nowak

Not only is their wine absolutely delicious They have the BEST customer service They really go the extra mile

I live in MA and I order wine in the mail every so often Everything has always been great But the last time I received a delivery some of the bottles were damaged (the wine froze so the corks popped out) due to the weather (we had a blizzard here) Jaxon Keys was AMAZING! They let us keep all of the damaged wine They replaced all 11 bottles of wine + they threw in 2 complementary bottles I was so taken back by the over-the-top service I will definitely be back Thank you Jaxon Keys!!!

Terra Flusche

My wife and I stopped here on a whik today seeing that they were open early, and Brook gave us a wonderful tasting tour! She was very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines and the history of the winery/distillery itself We picked up a bottle of the Wedding Cake– so good! I’d absolutely reccomend a stop here to either start or top off your wine tour

We arrived and were greeted by an extremely strong odor of cigarettes We stayed in room 8, and although it is a non-smoking room, it smelled like a Las Vegas casino inside Absolutely awful

I use a sleep apnea machine (CPAP), and when I arrived home following our trip, I had to throw the entire unit out into the trash because the smell permeated throughout the machine Not only that, but I had a horrible headache that lasted the entire day following our stay, certainly due to the awful stench After our stay, we called the owner to discuss the smell, and he walked into the room and accused us of making it up My hunch is that the staff are just used to the smell and literally cannot smell it, which is quite concerning I didn’t even ask for a refund, I simply wanted an explanation, and got absolutely nothingNow onto the other issues We wanted to cook food We were greeted with two steak knives and butter knives, but nothing else Additionally, there were no paper towels, and no cutting board I have never stayed anywhere that did not provide paper towels Why provide toilet paper then? There is nothing like the experience of cutting meat on toilet paper with a steak knife The owner might reply to this saying “you could have just asked for it” etc… But, how is that our responsibility? We paid $165 to stay in an establishment that has been in business for years and years How hard is it to just get it right?Next is the insects Prepare to be greeted by flying insects everywhere In the shower, in the bedroom, in the kitchen, on the walls Have you heard of a screen door before? Also, if you want to moor at the dock, half the mooring cleats have been ripped out, leaving only a few that are usableLastly, the wifi is complete trash, and if you stay here you are better off using your own data

Bad experience on my birthday even No heater in my unit They gave us space heaters that barely worked

I booked way ahead of time months ( they knowingly rented me a no heat place) unreasonable !!!!! What a let down Plus I brought them guests n had to leave halfway into the night my wife couldn’t take the cold 🥶 Leaving the guests we invited (how horrible )
