I visited here with my husband and my parents in July 2009 to get married. The site is amazing and it is so quiet and peaceful. All of the accommodation buildings are so beautiful and quirky in their own ways. Our Ocean House was next to the infinity pool which was ideal! It had a roof made of flowers and the view from the patio was simply gorgeous. There were hummingbirds hovering around the tree next to the patio and California blue jays which landed really close to us to eat some nuts. We went for a walk through the woods one morning and it was beautiful. We saw wild turkeys and deer roaming in the fields.
The Sierra Mar restaurant is extremely expensive (about £350 for an evening meal for four of us) but it was really good. Good food (especially the pudding) and good cocktails!
On the first evening we dined at the Big Sur River Inn (a couple of miles away) and the staff at Post Ranch were happy to chauffer us to and from the Inn.
My mum and I had facials in the spa which, although expensive, was really lovely and relaxing.
The wedding ceremony itself was lovely - perched on the top of the cliffs with the ocean crashing below. Afterwards we went to Julia Pfeiffer State Beach which is a fabulous place with amazing rock formations and big waves. And the wood burning fires in the rooms are brilliantly romantic :-)
I would love to return to Post Ranch - it is awesome!
