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..
