Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis makes The Ranch at Laguna Beach one of Southern California's top resorts and spas. This romantic getaway, nestled just a short walk from one of Southern California's finest beaches, brings the best of coast and canyon together in one uniquely Laguna experience. Harvest Restaurant specializes in California style cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy food and drinks from the comfort of your room with in-room dining, or poolside soaking up the sun at the Pond Pool Bar. Spanning over 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including four treatment rooms and a 24 hour fitness center, Sycamore Spa by Hudson captures the bohemian vibe of Laguna's laid-back beach lifestyle. Our 9-hole golf course is situated in what's arguably the most serene and natural setting in Orange County as it is carved into the naturally dramatic and lush walls of Aliso and Wood Canyons. Guests can also dine at Lost Pier Cafe, which is located at Aliso Beach.

If you want a real getaway to relax with your significant other, then I highly recommend The Ranch. We felt very comfortable during COVID as well because they took all of the necessary protocols to make us feel safe. Most of the rooms are single level which is great because you have very limited noise from guests (basically no noise at all). They play live music outdoors every afternoon for Happy Hour though about 8PM which was very relaxing. Their salt water pool was open for a limited number of guests and they had food and drink service as well. The beach is a quick 10-15 minute walk or a 3 minute shuttle ride and they provide chairs and umbrellas for their guests at the beach. I can't wait to go back to The Ranch soon!

We stayed at the Ranch for the first time and were amazed to see what a wonderful property it is. You are surrounded by beautiful canyon mountains and the sea. The staff were excellent in all areas: front desk; valet; golf shop; Harvest restaurant; Ben's pantry - even the nice gentlemen who gave us rides in the golf carts to go down to the beach. Even at the beach, the Lost Pier employees were great! Our room was clean, beautiful and looked just like the pictures. The balcony with the rocking chairs gave it that comfort feel. The pool was a real pool - 8 ft deep with lovely lounge chairs and plenty of towels to go around. We just can't say enough about how absolutely wonderful the Ranch is and what a great stay we had. We are making reservations to go back soon!

We have been going to Laguna Beach for years, but just discovered this hidden gem. It is located in a secluded canyon, but only a 10 minute walk from Laguna/s great beaches. The service was great and the Harvest Restaurant was a treat.

I used to go to The Ranch way back in the 60's with my parents when the whole complex was known as Ben Brown's. Now only the golf course bears that name. I knew it had been closed for years and was surprised when I learned that it had re-opened under new ownership. Having been there before, I knew it was a perfect place for a COVID getaway as the rooms are spread out in numerous buildings, and there is so much outdoor space where one can enjoy the property at a distance from others. We arrived and were checked in promptly by the front desk. The first evening we met local Orange County friends and enjoyed a drink of the patio of Ben's Pantry. We then had dinner on the patio at Harvest; the food was excellent, and the service was friendly and professional. We had two breakfasts at Harvest as well and found all of the meals to be of high quality. We very much enjoyed the live music on the patio in the evening; again, social distancing was easy. Our canyon view room was exactly as pictured on the website, and we had a choice as to whether we wanted room service or not. Given that we were staying just two nights, we opted out. The room was spotless, the shower was great, and the TV reception was excellent despite the property's location in a canyon. You do need to be aware that there is limited phone/WiFi reception; this is not the place to go if you intend to conduct a lot of business online while you are there. My only recommendation would be to add an additional towel bar to the bathroom. This was a much needed escape for two seniors who had been on six-month lockdown. We will most definitely consider it again whether the virus remains or not. P.S. We are not golfers, but the course was very busy from dawn to dusk.
