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

My girlfriend and I stayed in a room with a king sized bed, fireplace (wood and firestarter provided!), ocean view, and private hot tub on the patio. It was quite a treat for us! We also had a lovely meal cooked on the grill on the deck, with charcoal and a chimney provided. We bought food to grill near Jenner... More

The Fort Ross Lodge is a great place to stay for families. We stayed in a double queen suite that included a mini kitchen (with microwave, coffee, tea, sugar, and sink), full bathroom with deep tub and shower (plenty of towels, soap), the main room had a flat screen TV, a ceiling fan, and a room heater (quiet!). We slept... More

My husband and I enjoyed our seventh wedding anniversary at this beautiful property. After an extensive online search through dozens of locations, we stumbled upon this quaint property with loads of personality. We were quite apprehensive at first since we don't have the pocketbook to travel to coastal destinations. After saving our coins and checking in to the lodge, we... More

The Ft. Ross Lodge is a great place to stay. The room is large and very comfortable with sky windows that allow you to lie in bed at night and view the moon and the stars. Your room has everything you need---microwave, fridge, fire place, etc. The hotel itself has a great location and plenty of natural land that slopes... More

We didn’t have a reservation and lucked out when we saw there was a vacancy as were driving past the lodge. We saw two rooms, both facing the ocean. The owners, husband and wife, were both very pleasant and helpful in suggesting restaurants for dinner that evening. We were offered the use of the grill on the private patio, charcoal... More
