Explore The Sonoma Coast

Food & Wine

We are privileged to be located amidst some of the finest food and wine in the world right here in Sonoma County.  Whether you are in search of the perfect cheese (or even to watch cheese makers at work), delicious breads and pastries coming right out of the oven, or one of over 200 world-famous Sonoma wineries, we can guide you to the best of food and wine. 

Scenic & Local Interest

There are few locations with more scenic drives than in and around Bodega Bay.  We’re happy to show you our favorite excursions up and down the coast through quaint towns, scenic coastal views, rolling hills, apple orchards, and even the nearby spots where Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds was filmed. 

Activities & Adventures

There’s so much to do, but so little time!  There are numerous fun and unique activities very close to the Lodge, whether you want to enjoy one of the greatest kite flying areas of the world, go zip lining through Coastal Redwood trees, go deep sea fishing, golfing on the adjacent championship golf links or just play on one of the miles and miles of nearby beaches. 

Hiking & Walkabouts

Our area is renowned for the many excellent places to explore by foot through all types of different environments.  Explore Bodega Head and its dramatic views far out into the Pacific Ocean, walk barefoot through the Bodega Dunes, take our nearby bird walk to see the local inhabitants, walk amongst the giant Redwoods in Armstrong Redwoods State Preserve, or explore the nearby world-famous Point Reyes National Seashore. 

Our Guide to the Sonoma Coast

We have put together a quick guide of our favorite activities, adventures and sights to see in one, easy-to-print guide that you can take with you as you drive, walk, hike and explore.  If you have more questions about hours, directions or other things to do, ask anyone on our staff and we are delighted to help you!
