Rental Option

Renting a car at the airport can be extremely reasonable. Some folks find everything they need is at the ranch and transport during the week to be unnecessary. Other guests have thoroughly enjoyed the luxurious freedom to jump in a car to pick up a Starbucks, visit the local grocery store or wine bar. We are all unique and how great you can make choices that suit your needs best! 

Extra Day Option

Folks sometimes enjoy an extra day before or after their trainings and retreats to optimize their experience at Soma Ranch and/or to soak in more of the local surroundings.
