From San Francisco:
Take Interstate 101 North to Santa Rosa. Towards the north end of Santa Rosa, exit at the sign that says, Guerneville/Calistoga on "Mark Springs Road". Head east towards Calistoga. The road curves around a bunch. Past Safari West, turn left onto Petrified Forest Road following the signs to Calistoga. In Calistoga, turn left onto Foothill Blvd and then an immediate right onto Tubbs Lane. That dead-ends into hyway 29. Turn left on hyway 29 towards Middletown. Remain on hyway 29 through Middletown and Hidden Valley and, when you get to Lower lake, the road changes names to 53. Then, stay on 53 and follow signs to Clearlake. In Clearlake, turn left at the light onto Lakeshore drive. Follow Lakeshore Drive west to the lake and then continue as it turns north (right).
Or From Sacremento
Take hyway 5 North to Hyway 20 West (Hyway 16 is a good shortcut when the weather is mild). Take Hyway 20 west to the roundabout with hyway 53 south. Take 53 to Olymic drive and take Olympic straight west to the end and turn right on Lakeshore drive.
Lakeshore drive winds through Clearlake (northbound) and goes uphill and turns sharply to the right and there's a light at the top of that hill -- Lakeshore continues to the left. Down and up and left passed the Parkview Market and Clearlake Park Post Office and continues north another mile and a half to a formation called, "The Gooseneck" in which Lakeshore takes a 120° turn to the right and goes steeply uphill for a block and then Lakeshore continues to the left at the top (and San Joquine goes back to town if you turn right). Take that left at the top of the hill and go 1.5 miles to where the road turns left and goes steeply back down to an intersection facing the lake again, and keep going right (north) (if you'd gone left, that'd be Silverado Lane). The next street you come to is San Jose. There's a woman in the neighborhood who doesn't like strangers so she always turns the sign so you can't see it. Turn right up San Jose onto the dirt road (getting a good running start up the hill) take the second left onto Carmel Avenue. (passed Oakhurst, which was the first left). My house is the second to last on the right. There's a sign. The driveway is steep and windy but paved. Or you do as most folks do and park down by the blue and white garage.
Drivers report that although many people are inclined to take hyway 29 up from Vallejo through Napa, the directions above are reported to be quicker and less hazardous due to the lower quantity of wine-tasting drivers.
