Abalone Bay is an oceanfront home located in The Sea Ranch, a unique community association of private homes, sited with careful attention to the natural landscape along a 10-mile stretch of the Sonoma County coast in Northern California. The Sea Ranch is internationally known for its distinctive architecture, the sensitivity of its land planning, and community-based stewardship of the natural environment.
To understand not only what our Sea Ranch history journey has been, but more importantly, where we will steer The Sea Ranch in the coming years, Memorial Day Weekend of 2014 through Memorial Day Weekend of 2015 has been designated as our 50th Birthday. We need a full year . There will be events, projects, workshops, and parties, enough to keep all of us busy on behalf of bettering our shared cause, our dear home, The Sea Ranch.
Guests who stay at Abalone Bay are invited to participate in any of the activities planned throughout the course of the year:
