Hoberg’s Family Fun



Our resort welcomes all guests and their families and is proud to provide fun activities for you to experience each and every day.  Now, we know we can’t speak for everyone…But here in the mountains of Northern California we love outdoor activities such as swimming, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, playing sports, and more. 

If you would like to relax with your friends and family we are happy to suggest a couple’s massage, mom and little princess treatment, men’s facial or gentleman’s manicure and more!

However, if you ever feel like you’ve had your fill of luxurious resort living there are other options.  You can easily arrange an outing to visit nearby Clearlake and enjoy a family outing in a boat out on the water under the warmth of the California sun, go fishing, and even work on that tan.

After a fun outing families can watch a movie under the stars together, or each find something unique that caters to their own special interests.  Hoberg’s will host various concert events throughout the year, arrange campfires, provide access to the local golf course, offer wine tasting, and even have shuttles to take you to and from nearby casinos if you’re feeling extra lucky.

So whether you’re on a romantic getaway for two, or taking that special someone and the kids out on a vacation they’ll never forget—definitely be ready to experience the vacation of a lifetime.

What Makes Hoberg’s the Ideal Resort?

To have a proper basis for our reasoning as to why Hoberg’s truly is the perfect resort, let’s take a look at what the definition of a “resort” actually is:


According to, a resort is “A place frequented by people for relaxation or recreation”.


Hoberg’s is a resort you’ll want to visit because it rests amongst the beautiful natural scenery just north of Napa Valley.  This means that while it is accessible to our guests, it is also located in a private and intimate area—enabling those who visit to truly relax and escape any and all distractions that city-life tends to throw their way. 


So instead of settling for other resorts that are surrounded by busy industry, you can choose Hoberg’s as your vacation destination and experience recreation and total relaxation.  We like to think that we can exceed everyone’s expectations because even though we expect to be frequently visited by guests from around the world, we will strive to provide everyone with an atmosphere that brilliantly showcases the serene qualities unique to the mountainous regions surrounding Northern California.


In short, Hoberg’s is not just a resort—it’s an experience.  We truly believe that the previously mentioned definition does not accurately describe what we have to offer because in our opinion, relaxation and recreation go hand-in-hand.  (Who really wants one or the other on a vacation anyway?  Both is always better!)  So be sure to learn more about what we have to offer and what our exciting plans for the future are by visiting our website:

Lake County Beer – Hoberg’s Club Dan Nelson

The lake along with the soil and the weather is a great place for the beer fermentation.  The location is known for its beers and  along with that a vast number of eateries and pubs.  While Lake’s wine industry revamped in the late 1960s, the beer industry is of a later vintage. Mount St. Helena Brewing Company built a solid footing in this wine driven locale.

Mount St. Helena Brewing Company is a place in the little town of Middletown. Sitting in the shadow of Mount St. Helena, this distillery offers brews that truly reflect the region. Built in 1996, the bottling works has utilized it’s over a decade of experience has refined every lager on the menu.

They carry various types of beers:  With their English Ale one can discover a session brew with great taste.  It has light copper color, toasty nose and has luxuriously malty in advance with foods grown from the ground in back.  It has received the Gold award champ at the California State Fair.

Nectar Wheat Ale has clear light gold color and slight honeysuckle smell; the taste is clean and straightforward.

The Mount St. Helena Brewing restaurant serves up some of the best burgers and pizza around.

Dan Nelson Hoberg’s Club Skin Care

It is frightening to think how many toxins get into your skin just while out and about each day. They can cause all kinds of problems and with free radicals now being proven to cause premature aging it is important to look after the part of your body that people see most (your face). At Hoberg’s Club, they offer a whole range of facials that can deal with different kinds of problematic skin.

Dan Nelson Hoberg's Club Skin Care

Hoberg’s Club  Spa is situated in beautiful woodland stretching just less than 60 acres. This allows you to get away from all the traffic and pollution for a while and the opportunity to take a walk around the natural and beautiful surroundings of the site. While there you can bring your skin closer to nature too by treating yourself to one of the many specialized facials.

If you suffer from acne the Hoberg’s club acne facial has been created just for you. Their Acne facial is specifically created to treat the root cause of the problem and works specifically on the acne prone areas. It cleanses deep down to get rid of the problem rather than just topically treating the spots which allows you to get the clear skin you have always wanted and keep it. They use 5% benzoyl peroxide, which is a chemical peel to take away dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull, they also use salicylic acid to get rid of bacteria in the skin that causes spots to worsen and even become infected. It also helps to reduce the amount of oil so that you don’t have to hide away a greasy forehead or other problem areas.

If you like to wear backless or strappy tops then you will also want your back in the best condition too. The Spa specialists know this, so they have incorporated a treatment that will help you deal with both at the same time all in under an hour. They will put a masque on the areas to ensure they draw out all impurities, cleanse to get rid of ingrained dirt and oils then exfoliate and moisturize to leave your skin feeling baby soft.

According to Dan Nelson Hoberg’s club also offer refreshing treatments for your hands and feet. After exfoliating the skin thoroughly, application of combination of aromatic hand and foot mitts helps help soften up the tissues which is followed by a relaxing light massage. Soft heated towels are used to remove the product followed by the application of peppermint lotion to complete the most rejuvenating treatment.
