We have beautiful vacation rentals in three extraordinary California locations, Lake Tahoe, Clear Lake and Cobb Mt.
Lake Tahoe Information
Lake Tahoe is a large freshwater lake in the Sierra Nevada mountains of the United States. It is located along the border between California and Nevada. Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America. Its depth is 1,645 ft (501 m) making it America’s second-deepest, (Crater Lake, in Oregon, being the deepest at 1945 feet (594 m) deep).
The lake was formed about 2 million years ago and is a part of the Lake Tahoe Basin with the modern lake being shaped during the Ice Ages. It is known for the clarity of its water and the panorama of surrounding mountains on all sides. The area surrounding the lake is also referred to as Lake Tahoe, or simply Tahoe. Lake Tahoe is a major tourist attraction for both California and Nevada. It is home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area’s economy and reputation. Beautiful mountain and lake scenery are attractions throughout the year. The Nevada side also includes large casinos. Highways provide year-round access. View this great articles about Lake Tahoe and our Alpine Chalet.
Clear Lake Information
Clear Lake is the largest natural lake entirely in California, and has the largest surface area of any freshwater lake entirely in California, the tenth largest by capacity. It is located in Lake County and is fed by many streams. Its sole outlet is Cache Creek. There is a dam on Cache Creek to increase the lake’s capacity and to regulate outflow.Clear Lake is believed to be one of the oldest lakes in North America, due to a geological fluke.
Clear Lake is only a two hour drive from the San Francisco Bay Area but it is worlds apart. Lake County has a small population but rich natural features and the state’s best air quality. It is currently being rediscovered by Bay Area residents. Before prohibition it was a leading grape growing region in California. It is once again reclaiming its rightful place among great vineyard regions. A winery right next to our Cobb Mountain house just won tons of awards at a major international wine tasting event in France.
Clear Lake is a great spot for boating, jet skiing, fishing, kayaking, hiking, biking, and numerous other outdoor activities. Discover its richness and beauty for yourself.

Cobb Mt. Information
Cobb Mountain is the tallest mountain in the Mayacamas Mountains of California. Its 4720+ feet, (1439+ m) main summit is located in Lake County, west of the town of Cobb. Like nearby Mount Saint Helena, Cobb Mountain is tall enough to receive winter snowfall.
A natural wonderland, the Cobb Mountain Area is pristine and serene and its little towns with populations in the 100s, not 1000s, have great charm. Addresses up here reflect their surrounding – Forest Lake Drive in Whispering Pines, California or Black Oak Way in Loch Lomond, California. Wildlife is also abundant here. Deer, squirrels, wild turkeys, quail, rabbits, and hawks are constant companions. There are also the occasional sighting of coyotes, eagles, bobcats, wild boar, elk and mountain lions. Two golf courses, a large wilderness waterfall, fantastic mountain biking options, and numerous hiking trails make this a special retreat for those wishing to escape the Bay Area’s congestion and noise.
