The Mansion at Bodega Bay - Absolutely Fabulous!
In September of 2014, we held a special family retreat in honor of my Dad’s 90th birthday at The Mansion in Bodega. Our weekend stay began with family members arriving on Friday afternoon and everyone reluctant to leave on our departure day and wanting to extend our stay. From the very initial contact with innkeepers, Gina and Chris, I was extremely impressed with their kind attention to details in making this a memorable event. They made every effort to carefully listen to our preferences, suggest family-wide activities that were suitable to our group and made all the work as seemless as possible for us. The accommodations were perfect and exceeded our expectations. The Mansion was immaculate, decorated elegantly and fostered an atmosphere of calm and relaxation from every room in The Mansion (e.g. living room with a great view of Bodgea Bay, family room with interesting books and games, comfortable furnishing, exquisite sleeping accommodations with individual bath, the highest quality linens and bath towels, sound machine, and even wonderful outside grounds for morning/evening strolls). For dogs lovers like our family, it was a special treat to be able to bring our family dog, Oly to spend the weekend as well. The Mansion has special accommodation for pets and Oly made new friends with resident dogs, Buttercup and Loki. They were absolutely having fun too! We were served two fabulous breakfasts each morning; the first consisted of an informal selection for early risers followed by a sit-down, individually served hot breakfast. The breakfast menus were customized and prepared with our preferences in mind. Gina even went out of her way to bake special birthday cakes and served Kona coffee (a family favorite). Each breakfast menu was prominently displayed in a glass frame on a buffet table. The Mansion exceeded all of our expectations and made for a perfect family gathering. Chris and Gina were perfect hosts and the services they provided were impeccable. We truly enjoyed our stay and the success of this special birthday celebration was in large part due to the hospitality and accommodations at The Mansion. As my daughters remarked, ‘Grandpa is full of smiles and this expresses it all.” For my Dad, this was the perfect gift and he is grateful for the dedicated time to listen, laugh and share stories in a setting that was conducive for this family event. We highly recommend this venue for special events or for a B&B weekend get-away.
