We agree with the other reviewers—Bodega Bay Lodge is a perfect getaway!! We went for a 1 night getaway on a Friday morning (no traffic to speak of). We had beautiful scenery up Highway 1 from Marin/Stinson Beach. It was foggy and misty most of the way throughout the day but that had a beauty of its own. We stopped at the Marshall Store for lunch and had BBQ Oysters and cups of fish stew and chowder. We arrived at the Bodega Bay Lodge at 2 p.m. (2 hours earlier than Check-In) but our room was ready so they let us check in! The room was great: great view, very clean, and an end unit--which we loved because we love quiet! We then took a 2 mile walk to the Doran Park Beach area along the road and came back along the trail that goes through the marshland, where we saw abundant marine birds and some deer. By then the sun was out and it was in the 70's. We enjoyed the wine and cheese gathering in the lobby-what a nice touch. At Drake's Fireside Lounge, we had a dinner of Caesar salad and split an entree without any problem. After breakfast the next day in The Duck Club, we drove to Bodega Head for a hike where there were whale watchers waiting for the fog to lift to reveal the migrating whales. As we drove by the Bodega Harbor, many people were in line to experience life on board a tall ship since they were in port that day. When we arrived at home, we were amazed that we were only gone 1 day as it seemed like we had been gone a long time because we had seen so much natural beauty and really did experience a much needed getaway at the Bodega Bay Lodge. We highly recommend this place!!
