Granite Bay

Granite Bay merges traditional values with a high-end lifestyle.

Welcome to Granite Bay

A halcyon environment for families with serene neighborhoods in a gorgeous setting.
Jaw-dropping custom homes line the western swath of land tucked along Folsom Lake, serving as just one facet of Granite Bay’s idyllic charm. Surrounded by Roseville, Rocklin, Loomis, and Folsom, Granite Bay offers a highly convenient location that includes miles of shoreline. This census-designated place is primarily residential in nature, facilitating a heightened sense of privacy and a suburban appeal. 
Granite Bay was once referred to as Granite Bar by the 19th-century miners who worked the quarries. As time passed, the area turned to cattle ranching and, eventually, residential subdivisions. Granite Bay is now known as a scenic, affluent community with top-rated schools and quiet neighborhoods. 
Guarded and gated communities are common in Granite Bay, and an abundance of new-build, single-family custom homes dominate the market. Contemporary styles flourish here, melded with traditional design and crafted to include premier amenities. Along Lake Folsom in particular, palatial stunners abound, inspired by styles ranging from Mediterranean to Tudor and modern farmhouse.

Local Lifestyle 

With its nostalgic main street lined with local, independent boutiques and restaurants, Granite Bay merges traditional values with a high-end lifestyle. Sunny mornings are spent at the community market browsing fresh produce, and Granite Bay’s exceptional safety rating allows residents to wander its immaculate streets with a feeling of ease. 

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping 

Much of the commercial activity in Granite Bay happens along Douglas Boulevard, which houses the Quarry Ponds Town Center. Here, visitors will find an inclusive range of nail and spa services to neighborhood restaurants and wine cellars harboring extraordinary selections. In particular, Peet’s Coffee & Tea is popular among locals for its menu of tasty roasts and delectable espresso drinks.
Hawks Restaurant is also tucked in the Quarry Ponds Town Center and never fails to wow diners with its trendy modern interior. A frequently changing menu of upscale New American eats often includes prime cuts of steak and succulent seafood dishes bursting with flavor.
For those who have heard of the famed Beach Hut Deli, Granite Bay is notable for being the home of the original. Regardless of familiarity, customers are blown away by the restaurant’s gourmet deli sandwiches and laid-back dining room, both of which are perfect complements to the restaurant’s beachy theme. 

Things to Do 

Residents have ample opportunity to get together as a community. The most frequent example of local engagement comes in the form of the weekly farmers’ market. Each Sunday, the Placer County Farmers Market sets up shop at Quarry Ponds Town Center, putting the freshest produce around right at the fingertips of residents. 
Once a year, the Eureka School District puts together its charity fundraiser, The Fund Run. The event attracts over 1,000 participants each year and dishes out plenty of family-friendly entertainment along with food and drink after the race. 
Getting out into nature is effortless in Granite Bay, due in part to the presence of the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. Pressed into the Sierra Nevada Foothills, the park space provides a whopping 19,000 acres of area to explore. Those with a taste for the finer side of things — outdoor excursions included — will want to check out the Granite Bay Country Club. A spread of lush fairways on the golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Kyle Phillips is the biggest draw, though the club also features amenities for dining and fitness as well as a full social calendar. 


Granite Bay is home to a number of excellent schools. Top educational opportunities include: 
  • Granite Bay High School, 9-12, highly rated public high school among the top 100 in the state 
  • Eureka Union School District, highly ranked public school district serving grades K-8 among the highest-ranked districts in the state in terms of testing scores
