Join us for an epic weekend getaway to Clear Lake! Soak up the sun during the day on a pontoon boat, enjoy the sunset over the water while grilling at our lakefront house, and relax the night away at Harbin Hot Springs. Bring your fishing gear if you’re keen to catch the famous large-mouth bass found in the lake.

We'll spend the weekend on Clear Lake, which is the largest natural freshwater lake located completely within California’s state lines. Our adventure will kick off Saturday morning as we rent an awesome 24’ pontoon boat equipped with comfortable seating, a big sunshade, and a sound system.
We’ll spend the day driving around the lake with a drink in one hand, food in the other, and some awesome tunes in the background.

Later on, we’ll go back to our three bedroom home that boasts fantastic views of the lake and Mount Konocti, a 4,200-foot-tall dormant volcano. You can enjoy time in our private beachfront swimming pool, challenge a competitor to a ping pong match on the patio, or take in the breathtaking sunset views from the upstairs deck. If you want to swim in the lake, you can jump in right off our private dock, complete with a refrigerator at the end of the pier for snacks or beer.
After a fun-filled day, we’ll wind down and relax the evening away at the newly restored Harbin Hot Springs, one of the oldest hot springs in California. This oasis features eight spring-fed pools including a Warm Pool, Hot Pool, and for those of you who dare, a Cold Plunge. You’ll be sure to feel the magical vibe as you relax, reflect, or even meditate in peaceful surroundings.

Sunday morning we’ll pack up and enjoy one last activity the area has to offer such as a hike, more time at the lake, or even wine tasting in Napa before heading home. The opportunities are endless! This will be a weekend to remember so claim your spot now before this sells out!
