Please note that the Bell Haven Resort is going through major constructions in 2016 and the exterior/grounds pictures shown here are not current. The construction is scheduled to be completed by Dec. 31, 2016. After Jan 1 2017 there will be new pictures posted to reflect the updated landscaping. The interior pictures of Kingfisher are current. I will also update the activities available for the guests to enjoy. Kingfisher cottage is located in Lake County, on Clear Lake, California’s largest natural lake, also known as the second oldest lake in the world. The lake cottage Kingfisher is the closest Bay Area residents can get to a classic East Coast summer vacation in the Adirondacks and it is only two hours away from San Francisco or Sacramento. This adorable remodeled-Martha Stewart-like 1940’s retro 2 bedroom 2 bath cottage has been combined from two units into one large unit, 900 square feet of stylish country living. The cottage is fully furnished and has been upgraded recently. The kitchen has been remodeled with pinewood cabinets and modern appliances, making meal preparation easy and convenient.

In the recreation room, you will find a pool table, couches, cable TV and games. Just outside, the big fire pit is surrounded by classic Adirondack Chairs, the perfect spot for S’mores and a glass of wine. A ping-pong table, croquet and lawn volleyball are all available if you would like to round out the perfect family vacation day. On the beach, you will have use of kayaks, a canoe, rowboats and the pier with a brand–new dock extends 300 feet into the lake with the perfect pier platform for sunning, swimming and fishing. You just sit down on the lakefront lounge chairs, relaxing, watching the sunset give way to a glittering night sky, with a bottle of wine and some good cheese from the Summer Farmers Market down the road from us. Bass Fishing: Clear Lake is one of the top 10 Bass lakes in the Nations. Bring your fishing poles. We have a new, 100ft long private dock sitting at the end of a 200ft pier. There is fishing right off the dock!! Many 7 and 8 pounds bass have been caught right from the dock at sunset. In tournament season, you will see the bass boats sneaking under our pier off our dock in hopes of catching “Walter-the big one”. Anglers can also catch large mouth bass, crappie, bluegill and channel catfish. Our pier has a locking gate on it so you can feel safe leaving your boat tied to our dock for your entire stay. We also have parking for your car and boat trailer inside the gated resort. Our full-time caretakers are on the premises and are there to answer any questions you might have throughout your stay. For boat rentals contact Disney Boat Rental in Lakeport, about 6 miles up the road from us. Clear Lake is the largest lake in California by area; water skiing is at its best here, with cove after cove of smooth glass combining with beautiful North Cal weather. Pack a picnic; take our kayaks or row boat across the Soda Bay to the Clear Lake State Park, a nesting place for waterfowl of all kinds, perfect for bird watching. Konocti Vista Casino is 5 minutes up the road for you to try your luck; the Café in the Casino has excellent food and very reasonable prices for families.
