Fireside Lounge

Drakes Sonoma Coast

A casual coastal lounge, offering a cozy indoor setting to relax around our stone fireplace or step outside to take in a fabulous sunset, ensconced in a teak rocking chair by our outdoor fire pit. Through the lenses of our patio binoculars, you may be able to track migrating whales, spot coastal birds, or follow the kite surfers in the distant harbor. Our fireside lounge is ideal for dinner or drinks and shared plates.
