About Leah

I moved to the desert as a single mom to get away from the bustle of city life. My years in the Caribbean and later England lent to the inspirations that helped in the design of my home. The design process was a Mommy and Me project shared with my then 13 year old daughter Bodhi. Bodhi's design ideas allowed for the playful lines that only a child can add and hence the home is called Bodhi's Lake House. My son Zen added the technical supports allowing this home to accommodate future smart house advances. Steno Designs made the elegant graceful flow all possible.

Leah purchased this house in 2005

Why Leah chose California Desert

When we found this lot we knew it would provide the peace and tranquility we were looking for. We designed our home to portray the pristine beauty of the desert we love. The children and I had planned to open it up to guests in the future and now the future is here! Bodhi’s Lake House is A Home Away from Home with all the amenities of an all inclusive resort with out the restrictive schedules and rules. Come be our guests..

What makes this house unique

As a guest at Bodhi's Lake House there is golf (for 2 guest), kayaks, bikes, tennis, game room and at no extra cost. Once our guests pay for the reservation they can put their wallet away there is no extra expenses except for food! Since we designed and built this home from the ground up it is unique. There is no other. Come and basque in the unique desert luxury of Bodhi's Lake House.

Hidden Gem in the desert

  • 5 out of 5
After searching the internet extensively, I decided to book Bodhi Lake house for my parents' 50th anniversary. My parents, my brothers' and my family came together for this special event. There were 8 adults and 7 kids. It was the best vacation I have had in my life.

After exiting I-15, I was wondering if I was heading in the right direction. I expected to see some sort of water or green, but everything was just like a desert.

However, when I got to the property, it felt like I was in a different world. The house was amazing. It was beautiful, clean.

The master bedroom on the second floor has a breath taking view. The kids spent hours having fun in the pool. We also enjoyed the kayaks multiple times a day. The only minor drawback was that there were only 2 paddles while there were 3 kayaks.

At night time, we had a blast with the fire pit right on the deck. The kids also enjoyed the games in the garage.

I am not sure if I am correct, but Bodhi lake house seems to be the only one with a private pool. The private pool really makes Bodhi a special vacation home because we did not have to leave the property at all the during our 3 day stay. Everything was right there. We just swam, got inside to eat, then back out to the pool to swim.

We treasured this wonderful memory for ever.

Well maintained and simply beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
I always read these reviews when I make my choice so this may seem long but it will be informative.

My partner and I stayed in this beautiful home for a few days as an R&R after a Vegas conference. Although just the two of us, the home can easily sleep 5 couples whereas no one would get in each others way. This home was like a mini retreat because there is so much to do on the property itself from 3-D TC, movies, a game room, and outdoor water activities.

We stayed in the top master room that had a fireplace and very large bathroom with a jetted tub. (There is a window here that overlooks the water.) I managed to set the alarm one early morning and we drank mimosas on the upper deck while watching the sun rise.... it was just remarkable. (Bring your camera!)

All appliances are present and some. The kitchen boasts enough items to have a gourmet meal in the home. The W/D is also a plus. We actually drove to the neighboring town (about 25 mins) to find an actual grocery store however the market located on grounds (in the gas station) is a real little market and has almost the same food a large grocery store would- fresh meats and veggies too. The prices were similar or at most a few cents more. I should have saved gas and time by just shopping there. (Use this advice)

There is a game room in the garage which is equipped with a TV. All items were up to date and clean.

The pool is very clean although in March it was too cold for us to swim in. We did enjoy the hot tub as a good replacement - bring a cocktail. The paddle boat and kayaks were also fun to take out and venture around this manmade lake. You may even get visited by the ducks. The neighbors were really outside and it is a quiet area.

The owner was very good to work with and there were no issues. We even got passes to use the park facilities (gym and golf) for a small fee. She definitely takes pride in her home because it resembles a "model home" in a magazine.

We will definitely be back - with friends this time. The nightly fee was high for just the two of us to do it again but well worth it even if there are only two couples.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful, very detailed review. Yes Silver Lakes Market does an excellent job of stocking for most meals. They stock fresh meats and veggies as well. The price is right in comparison to the drive to Victorville 17 miles from our door step. I was very please to find my home in mint condition upon my return. We do offer the "Spa room" which is the master up stairs as a single room rent for couples looking for an affordable get away. Our guests of the "Spa Room" enjoy a Bed and Breakfast environment with privacy and the amenities of the whole house for a room rate. In addition when I am home I love to invite my guests and share a small brunch as I love to bake and am always coming up with a scrumptious new dish. Thank you once again for this awesome review and hope to have you bake soon. Leah

Amazing trip, Amazing property

  • 5 out of 5
We had 4 couples and 6 kids stay at the lake house. (my family calls it "The Lake House") We all loved it!!!! The accommodations were first class!!! The owner was there to answer any questions we had and did a walkthrough at the beginning of our stay. The views from the outside couches at dawn were breathtaking!!! We stayed for a long weekend and I was up at dawn each morning to enjoy the sunrise. Our favorite spot throughout the day was the couches overlooking the pool and lake. We really enjoyed the chairs and fire pit down on the dock as well(Chairs were soooo comfy) The pool and spa were great and easy to use. The kids loved the pool table and the air hockey and the ping pong and the foozball and the pool and the spa and the lake and the kayaks and the peddle boats and the TV's and fishing off the dock ( they caught 4 trout off the dock) As you can tell the kids absolutely loved, loved, loved the place!!!!! The adults did as well!!! The place was soooooo relaxing!!!!! Sooooo many spots to relax and cuddle up with a book or take a nap in the sun :-) Leah was very nice to us and made us feel at home and welcome at all times. She even drove around the community showing us the clubhouse/Pool the market and the restaurants all within a 5 minute drive. We played about 27 holes of golf the one day that we played. I plan on playing 4-5 times when we go back in April. Yup, we loved it so much we booked in April for a whole week!!! Cant wait!!!

Absolutely the BEST

  • 5 out of 5
Bodhi's Lake house is everything it promises to be. The house is fully equipped with anything and everything you need for any length of stay. Leah thinks of everything. When we arrived the house was beautifully decorated for the holidays with a number of trees throughout the house. We used all the toys; kayaks, peddle boat, fishing poles, pool table, ping pong table, air hockey, and foosball table. Betty helped us with the check in process and was our go to person if and when we needed her.....she was the best! Bodhi's is the place to go. We highly recommend it.

Amazing Home in the Desert!

  • 5 out of 5
Bodhi's Lakehouse is truly an oasis in the California desert! The home is stunning with sweeping views of the lake - a perfect place to watch the sun rise. No expense was spared in creating the perfect getaway. It is the perfect escape with all the amenities that make for a 5-star experience. The gourmet kitchen is a dream to cook in and is stocked with everything you can think of for preparing meals. There is a wonderful game room where we played pool and ping pong - or kayaks if you want to cruise around the lake. Every morning we were visited by a family of ducks who were very entertaining. Both the owner and property manager were very accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend Bodhi's Lakehouse to everyone!
