Bodega Bay Inn
is on the beautiful Sonoma County coast in Northern California. Bodega Bay is a small fishing village an hour and a half north of San Francisco. A short drive from either San Francisco, Oakland, and the Sacramento area it has been a great vacation spot for more than 50 years.

Our inn is a convenient location from which to visit the great vineyards and wineries of western Sonoma County. Visiting Sonoma Counties’ Russian River, Green Valley, and its many sub-appellations is easy. For those on a tour of California Highway 1, Bodega Bay is a good stop on your way to Mendocino or Fort Bragg. Bodega Bay is popular with bird watchers. There are boat charters to the Cordell banks and many wetlands ideal for birdwatching. The very adventurous ride bikes on our narrow, hilly, rural back roads and kayak local spots such as the Estero Americano, Salmon Creek, and Tomales Bay. People also come for whale watching during the spring and fall whale migrations. Many love hiking the trails of the 17 mile long Sonoma Coast State Beaches. This State Park is a series of long sandy beaches below rugged headlands, a craggy coastline with natural arches and secluded coves; features that make Sonoma Coast State Beach one of California's most scenic attractions.

Bodega Bay Inn has a special love for art and artists. There has been an Art Gallery at the Inn since the 1970's and still the space is full of paintings, sculpture, and tapestries. Bodega Bay draws people from all over the San Francisco Bay area and the world to fine art galleries. Sebastopol, Graton, and Petaluma all have wonderful Art Galleries just minutes away.

Our inn also has spectacular gardens accented with ferrocement sculptures and shapes. The design was free form and thus has a very relaxed, warm feel. In the gardens are hundreds of varieties of unusually gorgeous plants. At night, the firepit is lit to provide an outdoor lounge.

If you open your windows, you can sometimes hear the sound of the foghorns from the bay..

We are pleased to offer a smoke free, pet free Inn.
