ABOUT BELL HAVEN

Originally founded in the early 1920's, Bell Haven Resort has been a fixture on Clear Lake's "Soda Bay" for almost 100 years!  Bell Haven has long been known for its beautiful lake views, lush grounds, verdant lawns, and classic resort setting.

Unlike any other resort on Clear Lake's 100 mile coastline, Bell Haven offers a blissful combination of privacy and space, with only 6 houses nestled among the trees on the 3.5 acres of fenced and gated grounds.  In 2004, the homes that made up Bell Haven Resort were sold to individual families, each sharing a vision of creating a classic family resort, modeled on the idealistic image of a turn-of-the century Midwest or East Coast lake region resort.

Cottages


The charming yellow cottages, with white trim and dark green doors, evoke an earlier time, while double pane windows, updated fixtures, and a shared recreation room (complete with a classic pool table!) bring the conveniences of today to a relaxing "yesteryears" lakefront vacation experience.  The houses that make up Bell Haven Resort can be rented separately by individual families, or together for weddings, family reunions, corporate retreats or group gatherings.

At Bell Haven, the cottages are nestled beneath the spreading branches of oak, incense cedar, maple and redwood trees. Whether you're heading to the beach or the rec room, or visiting a friend in a different cottage, you'll enjoy your walk on winding paths through ferns, periwinkle and wide green lawns as you head to the beach.

While the entire lakefront compound covers over three acres, some of the specific areas you may wish to learn more about include:

THE BEACH.  From in front of Heron House, the front lawn rolls towards the water, past a huge oak tree. Often used for games of volleyball, croquet and badminton, there's plenty of room for laying in the sun or rocking on a glider while you look out over the dock. The beach area includes a swimming area to the left of the pier.

THE PIER.  Nearly 200 feet, the recently constructed pier stretches over the shallows of Soda Bay into Clear Lake, with the floating dock providing space for several boats and personal watercraft, while swimming off the end of the dock is a summer pastime. With fresh water and electrical outlets on the pier, fisherman, skiers and recreational boaters are all at home here.

THE REC ROOM.   Remodeled and professionally decorated in 2004, the rec room is the center of the compound, boasting a wood stove for the cool months and comfortable seating area, a large table for cards or impromptu group meals, and a pool table that's the center of attention for many of the older children that call Bell Haven their "lake place."  Just outside the Rec Room is a large fire pit and Adirondack chairs -- the perfect spot to roast marshmallows at night.
