Nestled in the stunning beauty of the Tahoe National Forest in Nevada City, our rustic luxury lodge welcomes all with a warm, intimate serenity.



Whether you’re planning a corporate, non-profit or education retreat, a wedding or family celebration, or a simple get-away, we have it all. The lodge combines the natural beauty of Tahoe National Forest, extensive gardens, a variety of meeting spaces, and distinctively designed and decorated guest suites. HRL is conveniently located near Nevada City, California, 60 miles east of Sacramento and 80 miles west of Reno.



Our promise - whether you are here for a business gathering, a wedding, a retreat, or a simple get away - is a nurturing environment where you can create, find inspiration and re-connect to the vitality of life.

Amazing that one sweet venue in the middle of the woods can check off all the boxes… elegant, refined, private, comfortable, homey and friendly.  More than a lodge, it is truly an experience.

Harmony Ridge Lodge is a gem. Our family spent over a week there, enjoying walks on the trails, barbeques with local, garden fresh food, swimming at Scott's Flat Lake and the South Yuba River and sleeping under the stars. We all came away super refreshed.

We recently held our family reunion at the beautiful Harmony Ridge Lodge. What a relaxing and gorgeous inn! The gardens were bursting with flowers, the orchards were full of fruit, the rooms were beautifully appointed and the breakfasts were delectable.

I recently took my mom and dog to the best kept secret just outside of Nevada City, Harmony Ridge Lodge! We came from Reno about an hour and a half away, but felt like we had traveled to some ideal place in a magical forest. My dog roamed the fenced in forest to his hearts content. We never wanted  to leave the grounds.

I have been holding a very special summer yoga, meditation, Yuba River hiking and swimming retreat at Harmony Ridge Lodge since 2007. The lodge provides great rooms, local farm, organic food and a terrific river hiking guide, Dave Skolak. I highly recommend this unique retreat venue to other teachers and groups.
