Just a few hours drive from the Bay Area, this 250 sq ft room with attached private bath overlooks Clear Lake, well known for its Bass fishing and sailing. Serene location is perfect for a peaceful getaway.
Enjoy the spectacular views of Clear Lake and the surrounding hills while you have coffee & breakfast on the terrace, or share a romantic glass of wine from the bottle you just picked up Ceago, or another of the many local vineyards, in the evening. Pick your own fruit and vegetables from our garden (seasonal) while birds swirl overhead. Kick back in the rocker and read a great book in the soothing silence. Pull the yoga mat out onto the front porch for a tranquil stretch.
The interior decor is old-world style accented with woodland fantasy, idyllic and natural. Along with the panoramic views, you'll feel as if you're relaxing in the French Riviera. Your spacious private room has a queen-sized bed with a romantic touch, along with modern amenities like high-speed internet, WiFi, streaming video, microwave, coffee maker, and refrigerator. A treadmill is also available if you'd like, so you won't even miss your run.

We greet guests upon arrival and show them the space, and then we generally leave them with their peace and privacy to enjoy their stay. We go about our business, but try to stay out of their way.

It was a last minute booking, and we got very quick response on confirmation. When we arrived, we were stunned with the view where the house is located. The décor of the house was also very cozy with so much character. I could tell Ethan and Christine have put in so much effort in making it a very nice and comfortable home. The room is large with private bathroom, clean and relaxing. A lovely stay that's definitely more than what you will get with just a room. We enjoyed our stay and would go back anytime.
We had a wonderful stay with Ethan and Christine. The room is big and nicely decorated and the bed is really comfortable. Our hosts could not have been nicer. Also, the VIEW! Wow. We would definitely recommend staying here if you're in Lake County. A nice place for brunch on Sunday is Blue Wing, next to the Tallman Hotel in Upper Lake, only about 10 minutes away.
We had a spectacular time at Christine and Ethan's home in Lucerne! The pictures on their profile page don't quite do the home justice. Panoramic views of the lake were just amazing, the house was gorgeous, and we found our hosts friendly and inviting.
I think the Roses offer a very unique experience, one that couldn't be replicated at nearby bed & breakfasts or hotels. We will absolutely recommend this home to our friends.
We loved their place - they have a beautifully decorated guest bedroom, an amazing terrace that where spent the morning reading (their books) and playing with their dog, and a charming vegetable garden. Their house also has an outstanding view of the lake, and clear skies that allowed for excellent viewing of the meteor shower that happened the night we were there. Thanks, Christine & Ethan! (Also, I love their writing!)
We had a great time at Christine and Ethan's place. The view is incredible. Both Ethan and Christine are responsive and great to work with. We highly recommend this place. The only con was the road to the place was a little rough.
Ethan was friendly and accommodating. As others have mentioned, the views from their property are breathtaking and inspiring. I took my pooch on a quick walk up to the top of their neighborhood and had near 360 degree views. You need to entertain yourself in this area, I recommend going across the lake to the State Park if you want to swim. This is a nice quick getaway spot. Thank you Ethan.
Wonderful location and very pleasant, quiet accommodation.
Very beautiful location and gracious host.
The views of Clearlake are simply stunning from this house at both day and night. We stayed here around 4th July Independence Day weekend and we saw beautiful fireworks taking place at various places around the lake. Hosts, Ethan and Christine were really kind and accommodating. Room was well maintained with all the amenities we wanted. Overall we enjoyed our stay here.
We had a great short stay at Christine and Rose's lake facing beautiful home. The pictures absolutely do not do justice to the amazing views you can see from pretty much every nook and corner of the home. The views are breathtaking. They are also very friendly and we made some interesting conversation about the books they authored, the art collection they have. Very nice and simple folks. And yes, I would highly recommend it to other guests. We had lunch at the Marina Grill and besides that the Ceago is a must see Mediterranean winery with beautiful lavender fields and the lakefront boat dock. Recommend the Muscat
