Inn at the Tides

The Inn at the Tides is a noteworthy place to stay in Bodega Bay, offering the perfect blend of rustic elegance and quiet serenity. Rooms here are comfortable, spacious, and well-appointed, and, depending on your room’s location, a walk to the beach or the Bay is a brief one. Of course, you can also just sit back and relax in the hotel’s jacuzzi or pool situated on the sprawling and well-maintained grounds. With a complimentary bottle of wine at check-in, free parking, and a full breakfast included, what’s not to love about a stay at this coastal Inn? Don’t miss dining at The Tides Wharf at sun down, where you can enjoy fresh, local seafood and picturesque ocean views.

Insider Tip

Ditch the alarm clock—the morning fog horn is a local way to meet the day.

Bodega Harbor Inn

If you’re the type that wants to be surrounded by nature, Bodega Harbor Inn is an idyllic getaway. Cottages dot the coast along the Bay for a private feel, and for those who enjoy the more traditional, there are, of course, rooms at the Inn itself. If making new friends is in order, it will be a cinch among the colorful lawn chairs where new neighbors can sit for hours, chatting and sipping the night away while staring at Bodega Bay’s pristine waters.

Insider Tip

For chefs on the go, there’s a grocery store within walking distance of the Bodega Harbor Inn. Cook in, and disconnect completely if you’re in the mood.

At the Bay's Edge

Looking for a home away from home, with unobstructed views of the water? At Bay’s Edge has waterfront rentals for those who prefer to create their own adventure while on vacation. The furnished homes—either one-bedroom, one-baths to two-bedroom, one-baths—are eclectic, charming, and acres away from run-of-the-mill. Stores, including a deli and grocer, are within walking distance, allowing great use of the kitchenettes with wood-burning stoves.

Insider Tip

Though you could spend all day watching the water and spotting sea life from your deck, if you do feel like getting out to explore the area, you’ll be in close proximity to all of Bodega Bay’s activities. And if wine tasting is what you’re after, the wineries of the Russian River are only a 20 minute drive from Bodega Bay.
