My wife and I spent three nights in April at the Sea Ranch Lodge, celebrating our one-year wedding anniversary. The hotel's setting could not be more beautiful: right on the gorgeous, rocky northern california coast, with forests, mountains, beaches and miles of trails immediately accessible. We are glad we chose the Sea Ranch if for no other reason than it... More

A timelessly serene retreat on the Northern California coast - at the north end of Sonoma County. best seen on a windswept day with chance of rain. The drive there is equally gorgeous by the coastal route (1) or the inland roads through the beautiful ranch country of central Sonoma County. Food is superb, wine list is the best of... More

I nabbed a great deal on Travelzoo for a two-night Sun-Thur stay at this lovely lodge. All rooms have an ocean view. The lodge is on a bluff overlooking the ocean and boasts a wildflower self-guided walking tour. Several trails are on property and easy to find. I brought my dog and we were pleasantly surprised to find that she... More

Hamburger_Queen Thank you for your feedback. Yes the Travelzoo offer was quite a bargain and we heard great comments from many 1st time visitors about their experience at Sea Ranch.

We reserved a room here at a reduced price. ($150) night that includes breakfast for two ($30 value). The room is fairly spacious and all 19 rooms have an ocean view. The downside is that this is a converted sheep ranch (hence their logo). And when it was built in the 60's there was no insulation between rooms and it... More

ontheroadagain1 Thank you for your review. It is true that the Lodge has been here in its present form since the 70s, but that is certainly part of its appeal. The drive up Highway 1 sports spectacular views, but it it seems as though it is not for everyone! Glad you enjoyed it in spite of the drive and thank... More

We stayed here for one night and had a wonderful stay. The accommodations are beautiful and modern, and the property is secluded and quiet. Made-to-order breakfast was included and absolutely delicious. The staff were friendly and warm without exception. The hotel property extends to the cliffs and a number of walking trails let us leisurely explore the area. I saw... More

The rooms are big and the beds are so comfortable! The only downside is that there is no TV, we brought our laptop and watched the news and movies. The area is beautiful and great for easy hikes. The restaurant is on site and the food is amazing! All of the staff was friendly and helpful.

This place has been a coastal fixture since the 1960's. On a very old, isolated, former sheep ranch, some very talented architects and developers built (then) dramatically modern "blend with the landscape" hotel, restaurant, post office, staff quarters and the beginning of an oceanfront housing development. They essentially made a town where there was nothing within 12 miles. (Gualala is... More
