Situated on beautiful Clear Lake in Northern California, Lakeport is an outdoorsman's paradise with the sophistication of San Francisco and Napa County right around the corner.

Living in Lake County isn't just setting up residency - it's a way of life.  With affordable housing, good schools, and a neighborly attitude, one truly becomes a part of the community from the moment they arrive. 

Lake County is fast becoming the "Boutique Wine Capital" of the State, with vineyards and wineries galore.  Activities on the lake include water sports of all types, swimming and fishing.  In fact, several Pro Bass tournaments are held here every year. The surrounding countryside, dominated by Mt. Konocti, which is still considered an active volcano, is filled with hiking trails, ancient oak groves, wildlife, and Native American history and folklore.
