My friends and I were driving down the Northern California coast and this was the only place we could find to stay... but I am glad that we booked here. It's a beautiful place with lots of cool history. The hotel's architecture is vintage late 60's but has been updated. Our room was spacious and the beds and linens were... More

We were married in Sea Ranch in 2006 and this was the second time we've been back. Each time we visit is a special experience. This time we spent time at the ocean and in the forest. We love Sea Ranch!

Wonderful place to rest and recover from daily life.We stayed for just one night,but again a great location and experience. The very unique architecture of Moore Turnbull is still an example of a well balanced way to built wooden houses in nature. The staff at the desktop(Checking out) was a little bit cool and kept a kind of strange distance,but... More

At checkout we were charged incorrectly for our room. After some discussion the front desk was able to resolve it. By the time we got home we had already received a $132 credit to our card. All in all we love Sea Ranch. The new chef is excellent.

We found the ranch to be quiet and relaxing. It is set on the beautiful northern California coast and the panoramic views are spectacular.it reminded us of an upscale camp like environment with nice amenities to invite relaxation . It has beautiful walking paths to meander. The only downside is the lack of insulation in the rooms which allows you... More

We have been going to Sea Ranch since it opened, and just love it. So peaceful and restful compared to our busy lives. Remodel is nice. We consider Sea Ranch historical and don't want to see much change, but upkeep and maintenance is a must. The management returned our charging cord to us. Very thoughtful!!!!! Joan Simpkins

I expected a more friendly atmosphere at Sea Ranch. The setting is undeniably beautiful and the room was quite nice. However, I felt that people staying at the Lodge, and paying quite hefty prices to do so, are made to feel like second class citizens in comparison to the property owners. We mistakenly walked onto the wrong path while hiking... More

Dear Barbara G, I apologize you were accosted by an angry woman when hiking on the trails. To be honest this is a first I've heard of a local Sea Ranchers not welcoming patrons of the Lodge. In response to access to the recreational facilities I will begin to see how we can make this a reality. Thank you for... More

Awesome property on the coast with incredibly relaxing rooms. Loved the in-room fireplace and large window looking out onto the bluffs and the ocean beyond. Didn't have the best weather when we were there but it was still a great retreat!

Room 1 shares a wall with a public bathroom. While sitting on the window seat reading, as you lean against the wall you can hear people going to the bathroom!!!! very unsettling!!! Also, the only winery in the area is not too inviting. The grassy area is brown, and the vines as you drive up the hill are dead, in... More
