Bridgeton Holdings and Tidewater Capital Purchase Sonoma County Resort Property

4/18/22

A partnership between Bridgeton Holdings and Tidewater Capital has acquired the Dawn Ranch resort in Sonoma Wine Country. The price was not disclosed.

Located at 16467 CA-116 in Guerneville, Dawn Ranch Lodge is a resort with 55 cottages, three bungalows, one on-site restaurant, and expansive event grounds. The resort borders the Russian River and has been featured as a top wedding venue by publications including Martha Stewart Weddings and Glamour.

A partnership between Bridgeton Holdings, a private real estate firm with boutique hotels across growth markets, and Tidewater Capital, a fully integrated real estate company that invests in and develops properties throughout the Bay Area. Henry Bose, Alex Lee-Bull and Elena Quach with CBRE Hotels in San Francisco represented the proprietor. Olga Lepow with CBRE Hotels’ Debt & Structured Finance group secured the acquisition financing on behalf of the partnership.

The property’s origins date back to 1905 when Theodosia Button Murphy purchased the site as an orchard. She built The Lodge as a dining hall and added tent cabins among the orchards to cater to the San Franciscans who liked summering on the Russian River. The Murphy family sold the resort in 1978, at which point it became Fife’s Resort. The most recent proprietor purchased the property in 2001 and rebranded it Dawn Ranch Lodge in 2005. Today, Dawn Ranch Lodge is known all over the world for its destination weddings, corporate retreats, large-scale family and other social gatherings, and as a getaway for transient leisure guests.

According to Akash Sharma, President of Bridgeton, the nearly 15-acre property will be positioned as one of the top lodging properties in the market. The partnership plans to thoughtfully expand the resort’s amenities, offerings and programming while elevating the in-place cottages, bungalows, event spaces and restaurant with an ethos that aligns with their design-forward and guest-centric boutique hotel portfolio. Further, the partnership plans to focus on continuing the legacy of the resort that was guided by the seller for more than two decades.

Henry Bose, Alex Lee-Bull and Elena Quach with CBRE Hotels in San Francisco represented the proprietor. Olga Lepow with CBRE Hotels’ Debt & Structured Finance group secured the acquisition financing on behalf of the partnership.

“We are seeing strong demand from investors for drive-to hotels and resorts in the Bay Area and across the U.S. This category of hospitality has been among the best performers since the pandemic’s onset in 2020,” stated the San Francisco-based CBRE Hotels team of Henry Bose, Alex Lee-Bull and Elena Quach. “Dawn Ranch Lodge benefits from the high barriers to entry for new lodging supply in Sonoma County and the unique property characteristics that make Dawn Ranch so special.”
