Our room (#3) could use a facelift - worn carpeting, window screen broken, recliner upholstery faded. The view was spectacular but the experience was downgraded a bit due to the condition of the room. The housekeeping staff was friendly; it is not a problem with housekeeping. The maintenance and upkeep could be improved.

Comfortable, relaxed time, but really you guys, wifi is like running water nowadays: you gotta have it. If the private houses on Sea Ranch--where we've stayed several times--can get reliable wifi, so can you. Also, your front desk people could tell us almost nothing about local trails. One woman we asked there actually told us she was a local and... More

We had two nights in Sea Ranch and I loved the rustic nature of the landscape and the lodge. We saw deer up close and the walks are terrific. Food in the Grill was really good and we appreciated the chef staying open our first night as we drove up from SFO to make the dinner service. As many other... More

I stayed there with my wife and 4 1/2 year old. They all had a great time. We stayed after a week of camping in the redwoods, so the shower and fireplace in the room where just what we needed. Watched deer graze as we ate a great dinner, played board games in the lobby and walked to the beach... More

I have stayed twice less than 24 hrs and want to go back. I love the cliffs/ocean and dont want or need to bake in the sun. The winds beckon and clear the mind. The food and wine invigorates and replenishes. The rooms have creature comforts, including a gas stove fireplace, in the wilderness. The memory of the getaway heals... More

The staff was welcoming, restaurant was delicious, there are lots of hiking trails in the area but on the property alone there is a beautiful preserve with gorgeous views at every turn (round trip up to 16 miles). My husband and I enjoyed our weekend getaway from city living -- it was exactly what we needed.

We arrived early but the staff was warm, wecoming and accommodating. When we settled in our room the view was awesome, I went out walking the easy access paths and enjoyed the view at every step of the way. My husband stayed in the room and read in complete silence and was so appreciative of his time to relax and... More

If you get a chance plan to be there for one of their Winemaker's Dinners. Outstanding! It's so quiet it hurts your ears. Saw a bobcat at breakfast. Windows in our room are getting old and blurry to see thru.

Dear AtHomelnLV, The winemaker dinners have become extremely popular. Chef does an outstanding job preparing his dishes to pair with each wine. I'm excited for next years lineup of winemaker dinners. I apologize for your room window being a bit blurry. We clean them on a weekly basis, but I will speak with the team about getting them done more... More

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
