As an intentional working community, Ratna Ling staff carries out many different tasks throughout the property and our hours of operation are between 8:00 AM and 6:00 PM. The Reception desk is staffed between 3:00-4:00 PM. If you plan to arrive after 4:00 PM it is important to alert Guest Services at (510) 809-4995 or (510) 809-4987 with your estimated time of arrival. If your estimated time of arrival is after 5:30 PM, we will arrange to leave an envelope with your name containing your Welcome Packet, cottage keys, invoice for remaining balance (if applicable) and map in the After Hours Check-In Box, located to the left of the Lodge main entrance doors. At this time there is no reception staff after hours. If this will be your first stay at Ratna Ling, we highly recommend you arrive during daylight hours, so that you can find us more easily.
