Lake County Hideaway

“Agritourism”—an agriculturally based operation or activity that brings visitors to a farm or ranch—is as old as winemaking in California, yet there aren’t many places where visitors with dogs can spend the night on the premises. Bed & Barrel at Stonehouse Cellars, a winery/tasting room/B&B in Clearlake Oaks, Lake County, is an exception. Read more.

Dog-Friendly Adventures on Lakes and Land

Clear Lake, that big puddle of blue in the middle of Lake County, is a popular vacation destination for families, but it’s hardly the only body of water in the vicinity. Blue Lakes (Upper and Lower), just five miles away, are a pair of clear, spring-fed bodies of water ideal for swimming and fishing. Only human-powered craft or those with or electric motors are allowed (speed limit is 5 mph), but you can rent an electric “yacht” or pontoon boat from the Lodge at Blue Lakes and pile the family (dogs included) on board for a great day of cruising about.

Summer and fall pass you by? Winter is a wondrous time for both wine tasting and cashing in your hiking chips, so why not take a gamble on an off-the-grid, off-leash destination? We talked about Lake County as “Wine Country Done Differently” in a recent wine country issue, so let’s focus on one of the best places in California for wildlife watching, and at Cache Creek Natural Area, a patchwork of public lands west of Clear Lake, you’re likely to spot bald eagles roosting or soaring and some of California’s last wild tule elk roaming in the rough at this time of year.
