This anniversary trip we stayed in room 23 up on the hill. It has an in-room sauna and spa tub big enough for 2 people. We only used the sauna on the first night, it's a pretty intense experience for us folks not used to using one. We used the spa tub both nights. It was heavenly. There is a... More

The Fort Ross Lodge in Jenner was a delightful, quiet haven for a relaxing beachfront stay. Although there was significant road construction underway on Highway 1, the driving delays were the only drawback and presumably they will not last forever. The rooms on the Hill were out-of-the way (which I enjoy), very clean and there was excellent wifi - which... More

This was our 3rd or 4th stay At Fort Ross Lodge and it was Wonderful. The room is spacious and the little table is great for cozy meal/snack anytime of day. Patio with hot tub is GREAT for star gazing on clear nights or coffee in morning. If you remain quiet when on patio it is amazing how close the... More

Booked here after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Left Eureka, Ca in the morning on motorcycles and had a leisurely trip down Hwy 1 to Fort Ross Lodge. This area is just beautiful and the Lodge is situated on the coast side with gorgeous views of the ocean and walking paths to the cliffs with lots of deer. There is... More

I'd give the lodge 5 stars if it had a restaurant within walking distance. Very nice, spacious rooms. Incredible views of the Pacific. Flowers everywhere. Nice patio for each room. The rooms have a little kitchen area, a dining area, and a large bathroom.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Fort Ross Lodge. We stayed on the Hill which had a great view of the coast. Our room was large and came with a very comfortable bed. We also enjoyed the Jacuzzi tub in the room. There was a mini refrigerator, microwave and sink in the room. The property also provided... More

This was our third stay, the second at 'The Hill'. We wised up this trip and brought food for the fridge, and to barbeque. Room 19 has a hot tub on the patio, and is in the kid-free building. (The screen door was finicky and slid off it's track.) Last time we came the Store did not have much selection,... More

We enjoyed our stay the price for complete silence in the evening was well worth the price. Will definitely be back to stay at this little gem. The management was kind and very pleasant almost invited her for dinner but she is married :(

My husband found out about this place online and we spent a lovely weekend enjoying the coast in early April. We had one of the upper rooms with a balcony and tub for two with a view. I believe there was a sauna too, but we didn't use it. We were arriving late, so we came prepared with wine, salami,... More

We spent a summer weekend on the coast, staying for a second time at Fort Ross Lodge. The reservations were easy to make; the reception warm and welcoming. The room (on the Hill) was great - in sight and sound of the ocean. We settled in to our room with a king bed, kitchenette, wood-burning stove, hot tub and sauna... More
