Why Jan Attard chose Lakeport
Comments From a Treasured Guest.... “My family, friends, and I had an AMAZING stay at Makiiva Estate celebrating my birthday. Janet was a wonderful host, who made our stay so enjoyable. She was extremely communicative and offered tons of advice on activities, places to eat, etc. She even left us a bottle of wine, muffins, and even a personalized card with a very sweet note. The house was beautiful. We had plenty of room for everyone, and the many beds and bedrooms made it easy for everyone to have their own space. Our group was made up of adults and one child aged 6. The house was extremely family friendly, but had plenty of amenities that would work for just adults. The pool was simply gorgeous, the property was spectacular. The house has a hot tub that is one of the best I've seen. I honestly do not have enough space to list out all the great things about Janet's property. We would love to rent the property again in the future. Thank you Jan!! ” “Janet, Thank you so much for allowing us to use your home. We had an amazing time and we would love to rent from you again in the future. You were absolutely amazing, an A++ host, and we very much enjoyed our stay. ”
What makes this Farmhouse unique
Highland Springs is away from the bustle of the Bay Area. Here, in this tranquility, time stands still. Lake County boasts the cleanest air in California, filled with natural energy and light to explore! I share with others the natural "beauty"; hidden treasures in this amazing land. Lake County wine country possesses high-altitude mountain ranges, incomparable natural scenery and the oldest lake in North America—offers remarkable outdoor beauty. It is the fastest-growing wine region in California with more than 30 wineries, nearly 9,000 acres of vineyards with many magnificent opportunities for wine tasting, wine tours—from the air, the water or the back of your personal luxury limousine.

Amazing secret gem in Lake County!
Jans's home was lovely! It is a hidden gem in Lake County. The location is tucked away enough to allow for much privacy, peace and reflection but it is also close to anything and everything you need (grocery stores, eateries, downtown Lakeport, Clearlake boating, etc.). I would definitely stay here again
Nica and her guests loved on my farm-
This kind of experience is everything and more I could ask for ......
after having found this piece of land, developing it tree by tree, turning the earth lovingly......into a stunning oasis vacation destination!
We (myself and Nice) were in constant communication prior to their visit-
questions, concerns, attributes about the area and amenities,.....wineries, restaurants, hiking...boating..I appreciate this flow of communication. The sincere enthusiasm I felt about how much she and her friends loved the surroundings and my place was crystal clear. I am honored to have had them stay - explore my property and Lake County, I would honor a revisit! I am overjoyed to have created a place of beauty for those from far and wide to enjoy, celebrate life, weddings, elopements and relax away from the bustle of the city!
A dream come true- (:
A nice escape. Property was a perfect fit for what we needed. Open yard, views, solitude, and plenty of room to gather as a big group or find space to get quiet time. The house is clean and welcoming with plenty of room. The only thing that tops the property and house is the hospitality and friendliness of the owner and manager. Thank you Jan (and thank you for the personal touch of kindly dropping by the lid that we left behind ;) and we look forward to the upgrades that are currently in the works.
Great property! Pool is fantastic
Beautiful, quiet and relaxing!!
We had such a wonderful time at this beautiful home. The pool is absolutely stunning and so warm. Jan was an incredible host and answered all questions in a timely manner. Plus she left us a bottle of wine, always a great welcome to any home!! We can't wait to return to this peaceful, relaxing property!! Thanks again!!
I am touched by the warmth I feel when special guests visit Lake County and enjoy my farm oasis retreat! Shannon and her friends took full advantage of their time, swimming in the pool and enjoying our beautiful Lake. I am honored they chose my place! A fabulous Bachelorette party !!!! Thank you kindly. Come back real soon!!!
We spent Thanksgiving in Lake County with friends. The house was very comfortable, very clean and so quiet. The kitchen came fully equipped which was very handy for the Thanksgiving dinner. The surrounding views are stunning: vineyards, orchards and mountains.
We also went for hikes in the vineyards and on Mount Konocti.
Jan was a wonderful host: She had a handwritten note to welcome us, and she left croissants and wine from Lake County. Such a nice touch!
I highly recommend this house if you want to take a break and recharge.
Gorgeous Oasis Getaway
Spent Labor Day weekend with a group of friends on the property, and we could not have asked for a better experience. The home was beautiful, remote and surrounded by tremendous views. Jan was extremely helpful and responsive.
For a relaxing weekend retreat, we could not have asked for a better experience. Not only would I highly recommend staying here, but given the opportunity, we will definitely stay again!
Great area for hiking trails, horse back riding, superb wine tasting, boating, boarding and sailing. We have an amazing local yoga spot. Shops abound.
