Self Care Retreat FAQ’s

We love our animal friends but unfortunately, due to health codes and guest allergies, we cannot have pets stay at Ratna Ling. We ask that if you stay with us you make arrangements to have your pet cared for while you stay at Ratna Ling.

Yes! Should you choose to venture off property, our location is ideal for exploring the sheer natural beauty of 76 miles of Pacific Coastline and ancient redwood forests. As Ratna Ling is situated on the ridge line of Salt Point State Park which encompasses 6,000 acres and has 20 miles of hiking trails. We can provide all guests access to hiking trail maps of the surrounding area, complete with suggested routes to our favorite hiking trail and clear directions to other local trail heads. These maps are located on the Reception desk of the main Lodge for easy access during retreats.

Our all vegetarian meals are prepared with great love and care and served buffet style three times a day. Please visit our Dining Page for more detailed information.

The climate around Ratna Ling, though mostly moderate, can change rapidly. Winter weather can be moderate and sunny to quite cool, windy and rainy (November – April) with temperatures averaging in the mid-50’s. Summers, on the other hand, tend to be dry and warm, climbing into to 70s and occasionally 80s during the day and then cooling down to the 50s and 60s in the evenings.

Ratna Ling is a drug-free and smoke-free facility, with no exceptions, including marijuana. There will be a cottage clean-up charge assessed if this policy is violated. It is fine to bring a bottle of wine or beer to enjoy in the privacy of your cottage. Please refrain from bringing hard alcohol. Alcohol may not be consumed in common areas.

It is important that all guests arrive at Ratna Ling healthy and ready for full participation in your retreat. As we live in a small community, contagious illnesses can spread quickly. Please delay your arrival if you are sick or have any type of cold, flu or illness that could be contagious to others.

We are cognizant of environmental sensitivities from which some people suffer. We have designed our spaces to be comfortable for most people. Please do alert the Ratna Ling staff prior to booking if you have any specific allergies so that we can confirm our ability to accommodate you comfortably.
