What an absolutely perfect place and way to spend a holiday or weekend getaway with family and friends. Rough it in small cabins at Markley Cove Resort overlooking Lake Berryessa. Not enough superlatives for this latest adventure. The cabins are small sleeping anywhere from two to six people. Check with marina staff to determine the maximum.
The sleeping areas of Eagle's Nest are nicely appointed; cabins include linens and towels. Nice not to have to schlep all that stuff with you. The living space is open, friendly and sunny. The large covered deck is a huge plus -- plus more private with gated and enclosed ends. Each cabin is different. Some cabins are also pet friendly.
Kitchen's are equipped but should inquire about what that means if you plan any serious cooking. Additional ovenproof bake ware would be helpful and any special implements if you have something specific in mind. Aluminum foil and plastic wrap and plastic containers for food storage are up to you. The full-size gas grill on the deck is fantastic plenty big and also has another burner if the interior stovetop is full.
The bath includes nice touches of soap, shampoo and conditioner and little packs with Q-tips and sewing kits. The marina store has the usual odds and ends but you'll definitely want to bring all your food and spices. Markley Cove staff was extremely helpful and friendly so don't be afraid to ask questions about what to bring or not to bring. Recreation enthusiasts will not lack for things to do. Of course for boaters and anglers....this is heaven!
Lakeside cabins don't have covered decks, BUT they overlook the lake! Upper level cabins have forest views, but are still very nicely situated. Mild temps accommodate spending time on the deck. In colder and wet weather, the 6-person cabins might feel cramped without the use of outdoor spaces. Certainly warm months are more crowded and mean more noise. Visiting during the off-season late fall and winter months make this a quieter and more restful experience. See for yourself! It's an easy daytrip from Sacramento or San Francisco.
