Distance Learning

Distance Learning

It’s a different sort of year, and it calls for a different sort of schooling, and a different sort of travel. We’re here to lend a hand, with our Distance Learning Getaway.

Good for two adults and two children, we’ll provide you with some incredible guide books and materials focusing on local lessons in botany, tidal sea life, geology, astronomy, and history. Families will also receive a five-day self-guided itinerary, including a private guided walk with local Naturalist Sue “Magoo”, a B Bryan Preserve Safari tour, plant identification and mushroom guides for the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardensand Van Damme State Park, a tidal identification guide for tide-pooling at Van Damme State Beach, stargazing with hot chocolate, and more.

Price starts at $325 plus the cost of the room you choose.


We have a limited number of available rooms for those affected and evacuated by the fires raging across Northern California. These rooms are not available online, so if you are in need of a room please call us directly at 707.937.5942 and let us know you are affected by the fires.

During the Covid-19 crisis, for the safety of our staff, community, and guests we are requiring masks and social distancing at check-in and in common spaces. If you feel sick or are exhibiting any symptoms, please contact us to reschedule your stay.
