Fort Ross Lodge...is uniquely situated on the rugged and majestic Sonoma Coast between the historic Fort Ross Russian settlement and Salt Point State Park. We have a BEAUTIFUL view of the Pacific Ocean. Just below lies a sheltered cove where seals lounge on rocky outcroppings and grey whales rest with their new calves on their migratory journey north. Absolutely breathtaking!

The scenery is always spectacular, boasting endless sea vistas, meadows of fragrant wildflowers, and emerald forests of pine, fir, madrone, and redwood. Come and hike the Windermere Point coastline and see the seals. Offshore rocks form natural arches and there are plenty of secluded coves. Each season hosts an array of special gifts such as the departure and return of migrating birds, the elusive spring trilliums, sun ripened wild huckleberries, and thundering winter surf. The entire area is pristine, renowned for its incredible biological diversity and natural and cultural resources.

    Fort Ross Lodge begins a new journey under new ownership and management. "The Best Is Yet To Come"...


“Fort Ross Lodge (FRL) was developed in the early 80's as a Sonoma Coast destination for quiet getaways. Since the early 1960's this stretch of California Coastline has been protected from development insuring that future generations will be able to experience the beauty of a spristine coastline with forests and wildlife in abundance.” - FRL's First Owners
