The Sea Ranch Lodge

 

The Grand Experiment...Continues.

The Sea Ranch was designed to respond to – and live in harmony with – the natural elements. The Sea Ranch Lodge, set in Sonoma County on 53 acres of dramatic Northern California coastline, built in 1968 and one of the oldest buildings in The Sea Ranch, the North Building has been completely reimagined and as of July 1st, offers 17 intimate guest rooms for a quiet, coastal escape that inspires guests to respond to – and live in harmony with – the natural elements. Following the complete restoration and revitalization of the Lodge’s public spaces in October 2021 and the debut of The Sea
Ranch Living home rental program in 2022, the opening of The Sea Ranch Lodge guest rooms marks the final phase of its multi-million-dollar reimagination.

The Sea Ranch Lodge’s South Building boasts a Dining Room, Solarium, Bar + Lounge, Café, and General Store all available for Sea Ranch guests and residents to enjoy. Travelers can explore the beauty of The Sea Ranch through a variety of leisure activities including self-guided nature walks with trails to Bihler Point or Black Point, tide pooling and picnic lunches at Black Point Beach, and strolls to the iconic Sea Ranch Chapel. The Lodge features residentially styled dedicated meeting, wedding, and celebration venues both inside, in courtyards, patios and on the bluffs.

The Sea Ranch Lodge is located in Sonoma County, 100 miles north of San Francisco within the larger 7,000-acre Sea Ranch community which consists of 2,224 private homes clustered at intervals marked by cypress hedgerows, sprawling meadows, rolling hills, redwood and Douglas fir forests and ocean views across 10 miles of the Pacific’s coastal shelf.

History

Living lightly on the land
line drawing

"Because of reaching for a view, or because the wind needs to be blocked. Something about the environment has informed the geometry."

–Donlyn Lyndon, Architect

The visionary Al Boeke, architect, assembled a stellar group of architects and design professionals. For prototype buildings the architectural firm of Moore, Lyndon, Turnbull, and Whitaker was hired to design Condominium One along the bluffs and architect Joseph Esherick to design a cluster of houses nestled in a hedgerow. Lawrence Halprin, landscape architect, studied the topography, weather, and vegetation that inspired the original master plan. His vision was based largely on the historical and ecological community.

The original designers evolved a concept of dynamic conservation of 'living lightly on the land.' A covenant would enforce stewardship of natural resources through an owners’ association of residents who felt an instinctive relationship with the environment.

Meant to be experienced as much as to be spelled out, the concept of 'living lightly on the land' starts with respect for nature. Each landscape element should be recognized and nurtured, reinforcing natural forms and scale. The specific site provides the identity, establishing a 'territorial partnership' with any structure placed within it, not upon it. Building materials should be drawn from nature: rough and simple.
