It was blazing hot in the Bay Area last week. What a treat to come to the beautiful, cool coast. We were, on short notice, kid free last weekend and set to work trying to find a place to stay for a quick get away. The Fort Ross Lodge did not disappoint! We arrived LATE Friday night. . .a good...

This is a basic lodge with a few unusual items as seldom or never seen in other properties, of higher cost: fireplace in the room although I was quite overwhelmed by the remaining smell of burning wood, a BBQ on the front terrace (bring utensils and coal) but no table or chars (!) and a Finnish-style sauna near the swimming...

Well for what you spend you get a wonderful quiet romantic time so close to the beach you can always smell the coastal moist fresh air. the staff, they jump to assist in any way possible. remember this is a self service love shack kinda place so go prepared. don't expect room service or specialty items. We will stay again... More

The room itself was very nice. We had a queen bed, table, sink, microwave and frig. When we turned on the faucets, however, there was only a trickle of water. The screens on the faucets were totally clogged with grit! We had to just leave them off while we were there but did replace them when we left. With the... More

here is my complaint to the BBB : My girlfriend recently visited from Canada. She is a GM of a very large store and needs to stay "connected" at all times. We had a last minute change in plans and arrived 1 day early and asked if they could accommodate us. They could. We were told the wifi was sketchy... More

We are sorry that our "free wifi" did not meet your business needs during your stay at our lodge. As you are aware, we are located in a very remote area in Northern California coast, where there is NO cell phone reception and DSL has just been installed. We DO NOT claim on our website to have wifi in our... More

HIll Rooms are pricey but well worth it. There isn't much in the way of service to speak of. Which means that you can really have your privacy. There's no maid service to wake you in the morning, etc. Everything is closed down by 9:00 pm, so plan ahead, the store closed before the front desk.

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
