My husband arranged a two night stay for us here as part of a US trip for my 40th birthday. I have to say that although every part of our trip was amazing (we arrived at Post Ranch following 3 amazing nights at the Wynn in Vegas, and two wonderful nights at the Little Ahwhanee in Fish Camp) our stay...

Dear Guest, I’m so glad you enjoyed the Summer Sur cocktail! The folks up at Sierra Mar are always hard at work concocting interesting, refreshing drink ideas, especially ones that use our abundance of fresh ingredients from the chef’s garden. Thank you so much staying with us and we’d be pleased to host you again. Kind regards, Dan Priano

We had stayed at Post Ranch February 2012. We returned May 2014. Our room was great, the view beautiful, but the policy changes tempered our excitement. Imagine our surprise when we were on our deck taking in the beautiful ocean view and smelled cigarette smoke. The people below us were puffing away. We had to return to our room and...

From the moment we drove up the hill past the entrance and to registration, I knew we were in for a special experience. We were greeted by name, our luggage was transferred to one of the Post Ranch Lexus SUVs (totally silent hybrids) and we were transported to a new level quite literally as the accommodations are on a ridge...

It is hard to write something new about this extraordinary place. So here's a couple of things I wish I had known before we checked in to the Post Ranch Inn. #1 Check in really is at 4pm. This is not a bad thing because check out is at 1 when you leave. I mention this because we left early...

Dear Guest, Thank you for your comments. Peace is one of my favorite units here at Post Ranch. As you now know, the views from that room are spectacular.
