We loved our stay at The Ripe Choice Farm. Tammy greeted us briefly when we arrived, and we met Mark later on a walk around the farm. It’s always nice to meet the host(s).

The six acre farm is secure and you can’t help but love the dogs, chickens, pot-bellied pigs, and elusive tortoise who remind you where you are. The barn loft was cozy and clean with plenty of room for an extended stay. It was a bit warm on our visit in June, but they have AC and plenty of fans. It got comfortably cool at night. The bed is big and soft. The bathroom is nice with a big shower. There is a frig but no stove or sink (other than the bathroom).

The town of Lakeport has all the necessary conveniences and is a short drive away. Clear Lake is much bigger than we expected with plenty of water sports. We rented a Wave Runner and explored much of the shoreline and hiked around Clear Lake State Park.

The Saturday morning farmers market was excellent with the freshest fruits and vegetables and amazing breads. Try The Ripe Choice focaccia. Red’s at the airport is a good spot for dinner. Tammy cooked us an amazing dinner that we enjoyed next to the vineyard along with a bottle of wine and wonderful dessert.

This was a unique and enjoyable experience. Well worth the trip.
