Welcome to Bodega Harbour

A golf community northwest of San Francisco offering spectacular Pacific Ocean views

 
Located approximately two hours northwest of San Francisco, Bodega Harbour is an upscale community that offers golf and beach activities with fabulous ocean views.
 
The harbor was used from 1811 to the 1840s by Russian fur traders who were part of the Russian Ross Colony, or Fort Ross. The harbor and town provided the setting for Alfred Hitchcock’s 1962 horror classic, The Birds, and several scenes were shot using boats on the harbor.
 
Living in Bodega Harbour offers residents the feeling that they’re on vacation every day. The idyllic seaside location offers natural beauty and unmatched outdoor activities. While San Francisco is two hours to the south, the Santa Rosa area is an easy half-hour drive.

Of course, there are nearby attractions and activities, such as marinas, a boat launch, fishing ports, and a campground, as well as windsurfing and kitesurfing. The area is surrounded by natural beauty.
