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:

Dan Nelson’s: The Wines of Hoberg’s Club

Many of the wines of Hobergs Club are grown organically. Organic farming protects the environment from pollution and  Dan Nelson of Hobergs Club has not lagging behind. This practice doesn’t have the chemical pesticides, preservatives and herbicides that get washed down to water reservoirs after a down pour. Due to the reviews that accompany organic foods and beverages as well as their Eco-friendliness, the demand for organic wines has been on the incline.

Dan Nelson Hoberg's Club: Fermentation VesselsThe difference between natural and organic wines could be minute, however according to the USDA standards.  Organic means the product was at least 95% organically produced and processed ingredients, while natural products are grown with more or less little intervention.

Many say organic wine tastes better which may be why it gets high ratings. Without fertilizer, grapes often offer a low yield, however they have a higher and richer juice within. Organic wines are also more expensive and lucrative since it production requires additional resources.

According to Hoberg’s Club’s Dan Nelson, you have to be industrious and dedicated to raise and maintain an organic vineyard. The fruit you grow will show your effort and your success or failure as a viticulturist will dictate the quality of your homegrown wine.

Some of the effort that went through into putting up Hoberg’s vineyard includes:

  •   Select your site

  •   Prep the soil

  •   Consider Your Trellising and Vine Spacing

  •   Assess Equipment

  •   Plant Your Vines

  •   Enjoy the Hoberg’s Vineyard

Dan Nelson of Hoberg’s Club advises networking with other organic wine growers.  This networking will help you benefit from their anecdotes of successes and failures; and who would also point you to good nursery materials.
