The rooms are situated away from HWY 1. Quiet night. The bed was quite hard, but that would be our only complaint. The staff was great at check-in. The room was clean. The little frig was quiet and kept our drinks cold. Was close to our destination of Salt Point Park.

Thank boord

We stayed on "the hill." The view was amazing and so was our room. I wish we could have stayed longer. There were so many amenities! Real wine glasses! Deck overlooking the ocean! Jacuzzi! Sauna in the room! Large bathroom!

The staff were amazingly friendly and they were able to give us a personal tour in Russian. There is a frontier feel to the place and you can sense how far these people were from home. Well worth a visit if you are in area.

We were on the Coast for a visit to Napa and drove North from SF and spent the night at Fort Ross Lodge. The lodge itself is quite a distance from Jenner and it is quite a beautiful trek up Rte 1 along the winding coastal road. The Lodge itself is very nicely situated on a bluff overlooking a rugged...

We have stayed here several times over the past few years. The rooms are well equipped and quiet. We have stayed on the hill and near the ocean. They are both great! The rooms are clean and the setting is magical!

Ft. Ross Lodge has been our twice yearly (sometimes three) "go to" ocean place for 20 years. We never get tired of watching the stars and ocean from our hot tub, visiting near by beaches and restaurants and trying my hand at barbequing. The staff are wonderful and helpful and what is better than a week away from work and...

Stayed here for the second time for an anniversary, and loved it all over again. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated - the setting is peaceful and the views are amazing. Staff is very friendly and extremely accommodating. Prices actually make an ocean view room accessible. We will be returning as often as we can. The patio barbecues are...

Stayed overnight and wish we could have stayed longer. Nice room with a patio and ocean view. Fairly priced. The outside jacuzzi was a nice plus. Short distance to walk to ocean bluffs. Friendly managers. The black tub/shower appeared old and not welcoming.

We had an excellent time staying here. Our room had a fireplace with wood and a starter, a BBQ on the porch, a hot tub also on the porch, queen bed, TV with DVD player, microwave, and fridge. We stayed in #16 which gives a nice ocean view right from the porch as well. Easy access to the coast with...

We enjoyed our overnight here on a trip up the coast. Kind of rustic but we enjoyed the "real" fireplace. We had an oceanview and enjoyed walking down to the ocean. Saw deer and sea lions on our trek. There isn't much around, so it's best to bring in food if you don't want to have to go out. We...
