My dog and I stayed here for a few nights and it was heaven! It was so quiet and peaceful, and after a great night's sleep I woke up to a DEEElicious complimentary breakfast. There are lots of trails around for walking and hiking, and beautiful gardens on the grounds. Last but not least, the staff was friendly, courteous, and responsive to all of my needs. I would recommend this lodge to anyone.

Loved Harmony Lodge's Harmony!

I recently took my mom and dog to the best kept secret outside of Nevada City-Harmony Ridge Lodge! We came from a city about an hour and a half away, but felt like we had traveled to some ideal place in a magical forest. My mom and I relaxed while we looked out onto a beautiful scene, while my dog was free to roam to her heart’s content in a safe environment filled with trees, plants, and the excitement of new places to explore. Everyone there was so nice and welcoming! We shared breakfast with new friends in the A.M. and wine in the evening while our four legged family members played (and shared treats!) with their new friends as well! We will go back…often! So glad we are now in on the “secret!”

Grounds were beautiful and full of flowers, fruit and bird life. Very comfortable trails through the forest and natural setting. The room we stayed in, called the woodpecker room, had no woodpecker (or bird) motif and that was a bit of a surprise, but there were woodpeckers in the forest, so what he heck! Room was clean and comfy. We like that it was dog friendly, and any dog we did see was well behaved. Plus, no dog excrement to be seen, so hopefully dog owners are cleaning up after their dogs and not leaving that to the management. Breakfast was delicious and set for our vegetarian requests. Owners are friendly, fun and have lots of suggestions for fun in the area.

Great place to stay for pet lovers!

this was the most pet friendly bed and breakfast we have ever stayed at! The staff was not intrusive and was very friendly. We enjoyed the grounds and trails on the property. The included breakfast was delicious and homemade. The room decor was a little random, the water pressure in the shower was weak and we could hear everything that was happening in the rooms next to us, but overall, we really enjoyed our stay. we would recommend it to anyone, but especially to people traveling with their dogs.

Perfect Wedding

We recently got married at Harmony Ridge Lodge and it was perfect. Our entire wedding party was able to stay at the Lodge creating a very intimate and memorable weekend. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the breakfast can't be beat. We had the freedom of choosing our own decorations, flowers, catering, music, etc so we were able to customize our wedding to exactly our style as well as control our costs with Harmony Ridge Lodge providing the perfect venue for a beautiful wedding. We can't wait to go back and spend some time there with just the two of us. We highly recommend holding any event at Harmony Ridge Lodge, especially a wedding!
