We made reservations here for last weekend. Upon arriving to the "lodge" we were sure we had the wrong place. It looked like a dated old roadside motel. The office had barely enough room to stand in and smelled musty. I told them this was nothing like the pictures. I realize pictures can look better than realty but the brown...

This lodge was very reasonably priced and sits right in front of the lake. The waterfront view is amazing, even on a misty and cold day. The staff ( Tiffany and Liou ) were extremely helpful about telling us all the amenities covered, which included outdoor barbecuing and kayaking. In the off-season, free breakfast was delivered to our door. If...

Our local organization, The Lake County Land Trust, held our annual dinner at The Lodge on Oct. 11. It was absolutely fantastic. We held it during the day, so everyone was able to enjoy the spectacular beauty of Blue Lakes and surrounding mountains. The venue is lovely, and the perfect size for our group of over 100 people.

This little resort motel sits on a beautiful sparkling lake amid mountains. It's so scenic. Get a room on the lakeside to enjoy both the evening and morning light on the lake. This place is so serene and tranquil. Kayak, cruise the lake in an electric boat, fish, swim, play on the rope swing, or just relax in the lawn...

I've stayed here many times, this is one of the nicest places I've been. The calmness and serenity of this amazing place is unbelievable. Rooms are clean, owners are always there to make sure everyone are happy and meets everybody's needs. I would definitely go back here.

This was a lovely hotel right on a beautiful crystal clear lake. I wish we could have stayed longer. Such a beautiful, peaceful spot and convenient to some of the area's nice vineyards. The manager was very friendly and helpful.

Great man - the Admiral and his fleet. Peter, you're a man's man. Hard working to the core. Attention to specifics and detail that doesn't go unnoticed. Those electric boats were something to behold and what a fun way to enjoy the beauty of the 'truly' Blue Lakes. Pet friendly, people friendly, great rooms, a free breakfast that rivals or...

We have been on the road for three weeks from Colorado, heading for the Redwood Forest. Clear Lake is in the area, so we decided to drive through here, and found The Lodge over TripAdvisor. It seems to be newly renovated, our room was cozy, freshly painted, sheets crisp...like a super expensive B & B. Room size was perfect for...

This place can't be beat. Clear water, lots of outdoor stuff to do, clean and comfortable rooms. The staff couldn't have been nicer. We will go back here! The owners talked with us several times to make sure we had everything we needed. Even brought us champagne on the dock. Free breakfast too. Hidden gem in California!
