My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. We looked forward to exploring the 50 miles of hiking trails advertised on the website, but found most of the trails are only available for residents or those renting homes and NOT to Lodge guests. Having said that, the 8 mile coastal bluff trail is spectacular and worth the price of... More

Rivaling East Coast Cape Cod, The Sea Ranch Lodge has the type of ambience that would draw poets, painters and romantics to it's shore line comfort. Though the rooms are not especially "fluffly"- in fact they are quite stark and rustic- the comfort you find here is in it's vast solitude. The silence that surrounds the property muffles the wooosh... More

Sea ranch is made for checking out and just being there. The rooms are comfy with mid century touches. Perfect views of the ocean and bluffs. Plenty of trails to explore. I am not sure I would love bringing young children here. The staff in the store and restaurant were very friendly. The food was good. I do wish there... More

great place to relax and I got to bring my dog. Not sure who had the better time? The weather was perfect the trails were clear and hardly anybody was there. The beach close by was like our own private beach, no one else except us. Perfect trip!

The rooms were beautiful, staff nice. The server was slow with my drink and I kept going to bar to pay and had to wait. But what was the most concerning, was the lack of insulation. I was awoken at 5:40 by a woman upstairs having a conversation with her mother in NY, yes I could hear everything. My daughter... More

We chose this place based upon the road trip itinerary written by an editor at Coastal Living magazine. I did not really read TripAdvisor reviews as I usually do. Highlights for me were the coastal walks right out the door and, since I enjoy taking photos, great sunset ops over the water. Nice Adirondack chairs outside facing the sea. The... More

I love my annual trip to Sea Ranch. Most beautiful and peaceful place. The people who work there are great and friendly and strive to serve with the highest marks. Unfortunately, the quality of food used to be excellent but has really mired in mediocrity over the last two years. I went to the store and ate in my room... More

I am not surprised to see that another recent review notes that the Sea Ranch Lodge is, on a whole, incredible but the experience is marred by the restaurant. Honestly, I cannot say enough about our room, the wonderful view we enjoyed, the location of the ranch, the staff etc. All of that was great so it is rather unfortunate... More
