KGO On the Go Recommends the Stunning Inn at the Tides

Tides at Sunset

For a getaway on the coast, look no further than The Inn at the Tides in Bodega Bay. With the soothing sound of the Pacific waves to the west and the bold flavors of the wine country to the east, no place is more idyllic.

Snack on California delicacies with a cocktail in hand at the Tides Wharf. Also browse the fish market and stay for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. For more intimate dining, enjoy the vibrant sunsets and exquisite plates at the Bay View Restaurant & Lounge. Savor the freshness of the fish in a clam chowder, a steaming plate of Cioppino, or seasonal Dungeness crabs.

Throughout the year, the Bay View Restaurant hosts its popular Dinner with the Winemaker series, with a winemaker from one of the esteemed wineries within driving distance of the Inn. Guests mingle and dine with the winemaker on these select nights. Each dinner starts with an optional no-host hors d’oeuvres reception followed by a sit-down prix fixe dinner with wines from the featured winemaker.


The Inn offers 86 quaint guest cottages, most of which have their own patios for watching wildlife or just enjoying the sounds of the ocean and your favorite novel. In addition, there are the two restaurants, a swimming pool, spa, and meeting facilities.

Many visitors head for Sonoma wine country to hike, kayak, and sample wines—and then return to their sanctuary and another memorable sunset at The Inn at the Tides.
