“All rooms are private cabins wonderfully outfitted with luxury bedding, sitting rooms…coffee/tea facilities, spacious bathrooms, and decks either looking out over redwoods, the next valley, or the grounds…There is a genuine air of serenity at Ratna Ling, and a clear desire by those who live there to create a place for reflection, healing, and growth…They accomplish this better than almost anyone else I know.” contributor

Breathe, Relax and Unwind

Ratna Ling is located on 130 acres along a ridge 900 feet above the sea, shielded by forests of redwood, pine and oak trees.  To the east one sees the rolling hills of Sonoma county stretching out for miles. There are hiking trails on our property and we are also just a few minutes drive away from  Salt Point State Park, with its 6000 acres of trails. Our roads are a favorite for cyclists, as they are scenic and have sparse traffic. A car may drive by once an hour or so!


Enjoy delicious vegetarian cuisine from around the world when you stay with us. We use organic products and many of the vegetables and herbs are harvested from our gardens to produce delightful meals reflecting the current season’s bounty. Meals are served buffet style in our Grand Dining Hall where you can cozy up to the stone fireplace or you may choose to dine outside in the Garden Pavilion where you will be surrounded by the beauty of nature.

The Ratna Ling staff can accommodate gluten/wheat free, vegan/dairy-free, and food-allergy meal requests. Please notify us at the time of booking if you would like to make a special request.

“I am an enthusiastic meat-eater. While the food that was included with our package was vegetarian fare, it was absolutely yummy and satisfying. There were salads, hearty soups, fresh fruit, creatively cooked vegetables and casseroles. I can be a picky eater, but that wasn’t a problem this trip.” ~Yelp contributor
