About our Lake House
We are the only vacation home at Lake Hodges. The waters edge is only about a couple of hundred feet away. This is very unique for anywhere in San Diego Co. Our 1000sf craft style home has two bedrooms and sleeps up to 4 adults 2 children, decks overlook the valley, lake and local mountains. Lake Hodges is abound by miles and miles of trails (the famous coast to crest trail runs through it); Del Dios is a noted destination for runners, cyclist, hiking, trail biking, equestrians, fishing, boating, sunset walks or just picnics at the lake shore. Guests say they feel far away from the everyday hustle but love being within minutes of the main city, major shopping centers and malls. The Lake House is a perfect get away and excellent for families, couples and professionals. Few houses are on our street, they are far apart and although the neighbors are friendly, they keep to themselves. Our yard is enjoyable, fenced and large. This is truly a great place to de-stress, relax and re-energize
