Lower Lake, CA

Lower Lake is located 4.5 miles southwest of the City of Clearlake, and 13 miles southeast of Kelseyville. It is at an elevation of 1371 feet. Lower Lake was at one point the county seat, the Lake County elections of 1867 were hotly contested with the seat moving between what is now the city of Lakeport and the town of Lower Lake, in 1870 the feud was settled and Lakeport controlled the seat. Although some believe the seat was stolen from Lower Lake, it has remained in Lakeport for over a century and is no longer a topic of concern for locals. At the 2000 census, according to the United States Census Bureau, the CDP had a total area of 7.9 square miles, of which 7.9 square miles  was land and 0.1 square miles was water.

Lower Lake CA got its name from its location in the southern part of Lake County CA, as well as being near to the south-most shores of Clear Lake. With a population of approximately 1,300, Lower Lake is a real community. The town is 2.7 square miles in size, almost all land, with several flowing creeks.

You’ll find houses for sale in Lower Lake CA in the quaint downtown area, in the local neighborhoods, on multi-acre wooded parcels, on land well-suited for farming and gardening, on land with flowing streams, on more rugged terrain of hills and valleys, on the shores of Clear Lake. The views are often spectacular.

Lower Lake was founded in 1858. There is some real history here. The Schoolhouse Museum, built in 1877 and restored and opened as a museum in 1993, features diverse displays of Native American artifacts and objects from early pioneer life in Lake County. A restored schoolroom and Victorian parlor add to the charm and authenticity.

Another point of interest is the Lower Lake Stone Jail, made of locally quarried stone reinforced with iron. It was built in 1876, at the height of the quicksilver mining boom, as a response to rapid town growth and the urgent need for civil order. Claimed to be the smallest jail in the United States, it has been designated as a California Historical Landmark.

Steve Cohn is an excellent realtor. When my wife and I were buying our first home he was eager to help. He knows and understands the process of buying a home as well as the market very well. Steve and the RE/MAX Elite Partners were responsive and helped us out the whole way through. I will surely use him in the future and have recommended him to a number of people already.

-Melissa & Steve

It was a pleasure to work with Victoria to sell our first home. She was very knowledgeable and helped us through the hole processes. She made sure we understood what was happening and what we needed to do as sellers. If we were staying in the area we would have helped her find our new home as well. She and The Elite Partners were able to refer us to another great agent when we purchased our next home. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell your home.
