The air is clear, the ocean is near, the owner/managers are dear so have no fear, you'll be satisfied if you go with reasonable expectations. Unit #7 ,a small room, offers an ocean view from the patio. Some necessities as amenities provided. The microwave and very mini fridge are necessary cause no dining nearby. Somewhat adequate store across the street.... More

Nice size room with mini kitchen, sauna, jacuzzi tub with the view, fire place....clean. We stayed Hill side and was very quiet, away from Hwy 1 and noise. No dining around here. Can drive to Ocean Cove, Sea ranch and Gualala for dinner. Room 18 building has upstairs room and bit noisy from upstairs though. Ask for top floor room.... More

We had a one night getaway at Fort Ross and really enjoyed it. We stayed up on the hill and had our own hot tub, which we initially thought we wouldn't use, but it was gorgeous, with a view of the Pacific. The view was beautiful and calm, and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The room was very clean,... More

We stayed one night in a King room with fireplace and hot tub on the patio under the stars - couldn't have been more relaxing! Mark and Angela were extremely nice and welcoming, even though we arrived just after check-in hours. The room was huge, and at the far end of the complex (#17). This made for great privacy, but...

Stayed one night on way to Mendocino and would have loved to stay another night. Very welcoming and helpful staff (owners I think). Beautifully maintained grounds. Cabin was very spacious, nicely decorated and furnished with microwave, refrig and fireplace. Room opened into a small but private patio with Weber BBQ grill and hot tub. Stayed in cabin #16. Beautiful view... More

We were on a motorcycle tour up Hwy 1 in California when we ran out of daylight and began to look for a place to stay, and this was the ONLY place within many miles, so we took a chance. So glad we did, we were exhausted and hungry and there wasn't a restaurant open for miles. The new managers... More

The lodge was great. The owners were very friendly. There had been a mix-up with our reservation through Hotwire because of some changes we had made but they kept our place for us. It was a nice little suite with our own small deck where we could sit out situated on the cliffs. We could see the water and walked... More

We very much enjoyed our one-night getaway at Fort Ross Lodge. It is located in a peaceful part of the 1, with breathtaking views of the coast on the drive up from Jenner. We enjoyed exploring the nearby parks and beaches, and especially hiking through the rhododendron forest at dusk. Our room felt like a little cabin by the sea,... More
