From Bodega Bay to Fort Ross along California Hwy 1 we enjoyed beautiful beaches and ocean views, culminating in 2 nights at Fort Ross Lodge. We enjoyed a one-room accomdation. It had a nice layout with fireplace, dining table and amply-sized bathroom. I was charmed by the welcoming place setting for two with wine glasses and candle. We did not... More

We drove up the coast not sure where we were going to stay, this place was recommended by a local resturarant in Jenner, and we could not have been more thirlled. The room was on the hill overlooking the ocean, the hot tub was amazing, the fireplace was perfect, the bed was one of the most comfortable beds we have... More

Loved this hotel. Granted, it is in a very remote location, and quite a distance from Jenner, or from most anything, for that matter, but it's part of what makes it special. This awesome little place is out on the wild Northern California Coast. THe rooms are lovely, with vaulted ceilings, fireplaces in the room, and some rooms have hot... More

This place is very peaceful and beautiful and inn manager is so helpful and nice. This place is a hidden gem on Highway 1. A little far from most urban life but then again that is why we go. I loved room 17, fell asleep listening to frogs and woke up to the sea lions down at the beach.

This is the second time we have stayed at Fort Ross & we will be back. We always choose a room on "the hill". This stay, we were the only guests in our area. It was very peaceful & quiet. The ocean view was beautiful. Since our previous stay, it looks like the property has been undergoing some upgrades. One... More

We have been on the road for five weeks. This is no doubt the best place we have stay at. I hope to stay there again. It is much better then all of the high end Motels. You can not beat this place. The Host are the best I have seen. They go out of the way to make you... More

Location location location. Remote, gorgeous views from rooms on the north sonoma coast. Enjoy the spa outside under the limitless stars right on your own patio with no one walking past your room. Nearby Fort Ross is definitely worth a stroll through history in a perfect locale all to be preserved for generations because it's all state park lands! Only... More

We couldn't be more happy with our experience at Fort Ross Lodge. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We stood in #14 with breathtaking ocean views, a private outdoor hot tub, fireplace, king sized bed, and cable flatscreen TV. We've never experience such luxury and can't wait to return!

The Fort Ross Lodge has earned favorable reviews for good reason. Our visit was even better than anticipated. Rooms, property and environment were totally welcoming. We will return for sure. While the location (12 miles north of Jenner) is remote, there are a couple of good restaurants nearby.
