About Bodega Bay Lodge
Nestling between the rugged Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley vineyards, you’ll find the luxurious Bodega Bay Lodge. Enjoy panoramic sea views and coastal adventures which will bring you in harmony with nature. The retreat is perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and two-mile sandy bay. Enjoy this breath-taking view from the heated swimming pool or infinity edge hot tub. Just sit back and enjoy the sight of migrating whales.
Each suite is decorated in warm hues and wood-burning fireplaces. The perfect choice for families is The Whale Room with its vast rooms and over-sized bath tub or The Captain’s Quarters with its wrap-around sun deck with stunning views. For romantic getaways stay in the Ocean Club Room which comes complete with a whirlpool bath.
From your cosy hideaway you can enjoy hiking routes around the lodge or take a stroll down to Doran Beach renowned for its bird-life. For the more active, enjoy a workout in the poolside fitness room or tee off at the neighbouring Scottish-style golf course. Sip award-winning wines at the vineyards on your doorstep. Relax at the spa, which reflects its location, with signature treatments using grapes and sea enzymes.
After a day exploring, experience locally-sourced cuisine at Drakes Sonoma Coast Kitchen restaurant. Retreat to the lounge where you can sink into a teak rocking chair warmed by the flames of the outdoor fire pit. Enjoy a glass of Pinot Noir and watch the colourful kite surfers as the sun sets.
