Get away with the girls for a “Clearly Different” weekend in Lake County!

January 11, 2022

The wise philosopher Cyndi Lauper said it best: “Girls just wanna have fun.” With all due respect to Ms. Lauper, we have a minor edit: “Girls really just wanna have fun in Lake County.”  Since the holiday rush is through, now’s the time for you to do you. So take that girls weekend getaway you and your lady pals have been planning since 2019.   But don’t just plan the same-old, same-old escape. Visit Lake County for a “Clearly Different” girls weekend getaway you won’t find anywhere else!

Where to start? Let us give you some ideas!


No girls weekend getaway is complete without a visit around our vineyards. Lake County is wine country’s fastest-growing region for a reason. Sip on the legendary Bordeaux varietal wines at Wild Diamond Vineyards and afterward, visit Mount Konocti and discover the local legend of the “wild diamond” by searching for quartz crystals. Six Sigma Ranch and Winery has more than just great wine. It also has a Pinzgauer, a WWII-era troop hauler, repurposed into a tour vehicle. Hop in back and take a tour of the ranch, learning its unique history before stopping for a sip of wine in one of the vineyards. You and your friends don’t have to be sommeliers to enjoy a sip or two.


If you’re looking for Michelin three-star affairs with servings the size of grocery store samples, look elsewhere. We’re a place for people who love the simple pleasure of eating a delicious feast with friends. If you’re of the same opinion, we offer a host of options, from local-favorite pizza joints, to brewpub favorites, to savory steaks and seafood, to whatever your heart (or stomach) desires. It’s all here for the tasting, served with the warm smiles and welcoming service we’re known for, so all you and your friends need to bring are your appetites.


Around here, shopping is more leisurely than luxury, which means you’re more likely to find something super special (and not just super expensive). Grab homemade craft goods made with love at an old-fashioned general store. Discover locally made artisan clothing and crafts at a unique boutique. Pick out a painting or select a sculpture to take home and give your living room more pizzazz. Or simply stroll the streets of our charming downtowns with no destination in mind. No muss, no fuss, just how shopping should be.


Staying is just as fun as playing in Lake County, with one-of-a-kind lodging options for you and your friends to rest your heads. There are campgrounds and RV parks for “glamping,” hotels and resorts with serene views and plenty to do, casinos with your favorite games as far as the eye can see, and cabins with porches for watching sunrises and sunsets. If you are looking to splurge, stay in the Lakeside Casitas property that offers luxury accommodations and views of both the mountain and the northern shores of Clear Lake. Our lodging options are as unique as we are, so you’re bound to find a memorable place to stay.

Featured Property: Rocky Point Vista

Looking for some privacy on a unique property on the lake? Try Rocky Point Vista. In addition to seclusion, this home also offers all of the must-have amenities, including a private hot tub and dock.

These are our recommendations, but you and the ladies should definitely be on the lookout for surprises. After all, finding something special for you and your crew to do is part of the charm here in Lake County.
