Bodega Bay Lodge, a quintessential California coastal retreat, has just completed significant renovations to its breathtaking property overlooking Bodega Bay and the Pacific Ocean. The extensive exterior and interior makeover, including an expansive new outdoor area and refreshed lobby, will significantly enhance the guest experience and reinforce Bodega Bay Lodge’s reputation as the finest luxury coastal resort north of San Francisco.
“After driving through the beautiful, pastoral valleys of northern Marin and western Sonoma counties, guests arrive to the relaxed and casual atmosphere at the Bodega Bay Lodge,” said Tim McGregor, general manager for Bodega Bay Lodge. “Our recent refresh of the property creates an even more welcoming experience with stunning new outdoor areas and a beautifully redesigned lobby.”
The property’s outdoor area has been completely transformed with a renovated pool, an oversized infinity-edge spa and an outdoor shower – all with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and the newly landscaped grounds. Nearby, guests can sit back under a blanket beside one of the new welcoming fire pits with a glass of wine or hot chocolate and enjoy the sunset. The redesigned lobby revisits the Lodge’s hallmark décor, combining contemporary seaside comfort with rustic sophistication. Effortlessly casual, the lobby features oversized couches, leather reading chairs and beautifully restored hardwood and slate floors.
“The Lodge prides itself on being a premier home base for experiencing the best of Northern Marin, Western Sonoma County and the northern coastal region,” said McGregor. “Guests can experience nearby culinary delights such as sustainable aquaculture at Hog Island Oyster Company, cheese tasting at Cowgirl Creamery, or fresh-baked treats at the Wild Flour Bread Company in nearby Freestone. For more adventurous types, kite flying, kayaking, surfing, deep-sea fishing and challenging hikes are all available within a short drive.”
Guestrooms feature stunning coastal views, wood-burning fireplaces, private balconies, plush down comforters, spa robes and slippers, 24-hour in-room dining, and a complimentary wine and cheese hour. Amenities of the Lodge include a dramatic, infinity-edge hot tub with unobstructed ocean views along with a heated swimming pool and sauna. Guests can stay in shape at the expansive fitness center, borrow a complimentary Electra cruiser bike for a coastal ride and enjoy exploring four acres of lavishly landscaped grounds. Guests can also take advantage of the new electric car charging stations.
Under the direction of Executive Chef Jeff Reilly, the Duck Club Restaurant features award-winning Sonoma coastal cuisine with commanding ocean views and superb service in an effortlessly elegant setting. Menus change seasonally to highlight fresh local seafood and sustainable, regional ingredients which are perfectly paired with the finest Sonoma County wines.
Adjacent to the Duck Club Restaurant, Drake’s Fireside Lounge offers a more casual dining experience. Guests can relax indoors next to the stone fireplace, or cozy up to the outdoor fire pit in a teak rocking chair while spotting coastal birds or migrating whales through the patio binoculars.
The Spa at Bodega Bay Lodge reflects both comfort and relaxed refinement, with treatments geared toward rejuvenating the body, renewing the spirit and reviving the senses.
Bodega Bay Lodge is located at 103 Coast Highway One in Bodega Bay, California. For more information, visit www.bodegabaylodge.com.
