It’s starting to get cooler outside, and you might need a place to get all warm and cozy. The Lodge at Torrey Pines has everything you’re looking for to enjoy a brisk fall day. The Lodge itself is surrounded by a forest of rare pine trees, giving the feeling of mountainous seclusion in a luxurious setting. It is a gorgeous wood-trimmed building sitting on the 18th green of the famous Torrey Pines golf course. The Lodge offers plenty to do for every member of the family. You can, of course, spend the day golfing, or maybe play a game of croquet. There is a year-round fenced and heated swimming pool that has a spectacular view of the scenery.

Or, maybe the family just wants to relax after a long day in a cozy lounge with a giant fireplace.
There is more than plenty to do in the surrounding areas for those who want to explore the beauty of La Jolla. The nearby Torrey Pines State Reserve offers daily guided hikes and is the perfect way to get the most out of your visit to La Jolla. It is a 2,000 acre protected reserve with 8 miles of trails.
