Bodega Ridge, Sister Lodges
Close to the ocean and only a few minutes drive from the venue, the Bodega Ridge sister lodges will offer 3 x 1 bedroom cabins, 2 x 2 bedroom cabins. Currently under major renovation, these cabins will be high-end rustic accommodation, complete with Vancouver made Bocci pendant lighting, Pendleton blankets, custom millwork and a bevy of other thoughtful design elements. The prices are more premium, but we're sure they will be gorgeous!! Rates will be $300 per night for the one bedroom cabins, $375 for the doubles. We have secured them for the wedding, but if you would like to stay here please contact firstname.lastname@example.org Payment will be on departure.
For those of you unfamiliar with Air Bnb, It is a great website of like-minded people offering "home from home" style accommodation. You can take a room within a house, part of a house, or the whole place. We have used it on many occasions from trips to Nanaimo in a whole house that sleeps 10+ people, to a one bedroom apartment in Portland when we got engaged. If you want more confidence with a booking, then there are some places that are recommended as "Super Hosts." This means your hosts are more experienced and will be most equipped to meet your needs. But either way, we have had some great experiences. To book, you make a request and the host accepts you - Some places have instant book if you don't want to wait for approval.
Let us know if you are new to Air BnB and we can invite you which will give you a $40 credit.
Galiano Inn Oceanfront Spa
We can't personally recommend this hotel, but it looks very nice as we called into their reception area. It would be about a 30 minute drive to the venue, but very close to the ferry terminal, and I believe they have a free shuttle.
