A Work In Progress
Please be sure to check our current construction and noise updates: Construction Disruptions
As we create new, permanent structures, active construction and reforestation may be underway at different times and in different places around Harbin’s property. This continuing building process can necessitate periodic changes in what we offer and ask of our guests. We do our best to inform you in advance about any planned noise or significant changes in our services or policies. No matter what may be happening around our property, it is always our aim to make each Harbin visit a safe, relaxing, enjoyable, and especially transformative experience for every guest who joins us.
The 2015 Valley Fire burned over 70,000 acres throughout Lake and Napa Counties destroying 95% of Harbin’s buildings and support infrastructure in it’s path. Our initial construction work focused on clearing the land of debris, replacing the basic utilities, restoring the pool area (including upgrading to ADA standards), establishing temporary guest structures (reception office, restrooms, dressing areas, health services, events, café, etc.), and opening guest options accommodations, (cottages, caravans and domes). The completion of these projects – while extraordinary – is still just the beginning of our journey.
As we continue rebuilding we look forward to your being present during our exciting progress as we expand our offerings with events, celebrations and ceremonies.

Our stewardship of this land has long included the commitment to keep it as undeveloped as possible. Our intention is to help keep our area naturally beautiful; to support its wildlife and habitat; to help maintain Lake County’s air as “among the cleanest in the nation” (as it has been repeatedly ranked in the past decade); and to provide large, natural tracts for the safe, quiet, and comfortable enjoyment of our guests.
The fire significantly impacted our land, watershed, wildlife and habitat. With an estimated half-million Harbin trees burned, it has been – and will continue to be – a priority for us to protect and ensure the long-term safety and health of Harbin’s land, groundwater, and wildlife. We’ve done major work toward these ends already – and we’ve been successful in garnering remarkable support from public and private sources. But with so much acreage and so much devastation, the work to remove dead biomass, mitigate erosion, and replant forests and shade trees will be ongoing at Harbin for many years.
For the foreseeable future, as we continue working to transition from the fire of 2015, change is likely to be one of our surest constants.
