Always wanted to see this building as it was in the movie The Birds.
A little town of Bodega surrounds it!
Nice little shops.
It is right behind a beautiful little church.

The only reason we went was because of Alfred Hitchcock's movie, The Birds. We stopped, read the plaque and took a picture. No crowds. There is not much else to do. Since it is a private residence it is not open to see the inside. If you're a Birds fan and in the area, it's worth the short detour.

The property was bought and renovated by a private owner and cannot be visited.
It was fun however seeing the house and recalling the scenes from "the birds".
This can be combined with a visit to St Teresa de Avila church which next to the house.

This has been a favorite stop when going to Bodega. The Schoolhouse looks deserted and no visiting hours are posted. We were disappointed. Keep checking web site to see if something changes. Site is worth visiing if you are are HItchcock fan.

Felt like Chevy Chase at the Grand Canyon. Drove up, got out of the car, took a picture, and drove off. Off the bucket list. Nice to say we did it. If this is the only reason to go to Bodega bay you'll be disappointed. Bodega bay has so much more. But if you do find yourself in Bodega bay, don't miss it. Looks just like it did in the movie.
