We wanted a one-night stay to break our journey on Highway 1 from San Fran to LA. A friend recommended Ragged Point Inn which was perfect as it is around half way between the two cities. We arrived in time for a bottle of wine in the sunshine on the patio surrounding the restaurant. The whole resort is so tranquill and set in beautifully maintained gardens. The views of course are stunning. Mountains to the rear and the rugged cliff edge in front of the property. Our room was 30 feet from the cliff edge. It was large and well equipped, but a little dated. Each room has a small patio area with bench to sit and soak up the view. The vegetation and wildlife is superb - hummingbirds are a common sight. The Nature Trail down to Ragged Point's beach looked inviting, but also a little steep so we avoided this as we had little time. The evening meal was great in the restaurant. We enjoyed a fantastic steak with pleasant staff and a changing view as night fell and the stars came out. Being miles from anywere, it's extremely quiet and relaxing. Yes, the rooms are expensive compared to other hotels in the US, but it's a unique experience and one we would not have wanted to miss.
