Venue Features

Sea Ranch Lodge is located in The Sea Ranch, renowned as a model of environmentally sensitive development. The Sea Ranch was conceived so current residents, like the Pomo Indians before them, could “live lightly on the land.” Envisioning a community that would preserve the area’s natural beauty, architect and planner Al Boeke assembled a talented team of designers and architects: Joseph Esherick; and Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, William Turnbull, Jr., Richard Whitaker (MLTW); and landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, who created the master plan for The Sea Ranch. The development was created from 1964 – 1972, when several hundred homes, the lodge, restaurant, small business center, airport and fire station were built. 

Noted for its distinctive architecture, The Sea Ranch community features residential design that blends in with and becomes part of the natural landscape. Buildings were sited to preserve the ocean views, scenery, indigenous landscaping and open space. What is now known as the “Sea Ranch style” features informal, simple timber-frame structures clad in wooden siding or shingles, a vertical form inspired by farm buildings, natural light, and other characteristics mindful of the environment. This architectural design approach, based on a desire to integrate what is man-made into the natural surroundings, has been widely recognized, acclaimed and imitated over the years.

Today the 3,500-acre community extends about 10 miles along the coastline, offering preserved open space, numerous hiking trails, and the Sea Ranch Golf Links, a Scottish-style course designed by Robert Muir Graves.

The Sea Ranch Lodge is located about eight miles south of the town of Gualala. Mendocino (an historic whaling village on the northern California coast), Sonoma County Wine Country and California's 5th largest metropolitan area Santa Rosa are easy day trips from Sea Ranch Lodge.

Awards & Notables Sea Ranch Lodge has been named one of “Best of Weddings" for 2012 and 2013 in the Northern California / San Francisco Bay Area by The Knot.
