We had a wonderful stay here. The views are fantastic, and we did see deer and all kinds of birds. We stayed in a room with a fireplace and a private hot tub on the patio, and it could not have been more perfect. The innkeepers are warm, welcoming and helpful. There isn't any cell service, and very little WiFi...

This is a nice place. It's very clean and the bed was super comfy. Enjoyed the hot tub and the view. We were happy to be "unplugged" and brought some DVDs to watch and did a lot of reading. Brought our food and a cooler. Did a great bike ride. Lots of cool little beaches to explore. Nearby hiking. A...

Nice room, and very quiet. Had a Tv , microwave, and small frig. Bathroom was well up to date with a large sunken bathtub, and some units had a Hot Tub on the patios. Decent price for just stopping in with no reservation and last minute on our way to Fort Bragg. Two downsides to staying here were, there were...

I wanted to get away from it all for a couple of days to recharge and reflect. I arrived at SFO after 18:00. I called the lodge and they said they would leave instructions to get into my room. I arrived after 01:00 and immediately found my room, key waiting for me. It was magic, total quiet except for the...

Very nice hotel with a friendly couple of owners. Fireplace in the room, hot jacuzzi outside, that is very appreciated in a cool climate. A raccoon that came by and was not afraid of the people. Elegant, beautifully decorated room. Nice cozy bed. Solitude in nature and beautiful landscape.

The air is clear, the ocean is near, the owner/managers are dear so have no fear, you'll be satisfied if you go with reasonable expectations. Unit #7 ,a small room, offers an ocean view from the patio. Some necessities as amenities provided. The microwave and very mini fridge are necessary cause no dining nearby. Somewhat adequate store across the street....

Nice size room with mini kitchen, sauna, jacuzzi tub with the view, fire place....clean. We stayed Hill side and was very quiet, away from Hwy 1 and noise. No dining around here. Can drive to Ocean Cove, Sea ranch and Gualala for dinner. Room 18 building has upstairs room and bit noisy from upstairs though. Ask for top floor room....

We had a one night getaway at Fort Ross and really enjoyed it. We stayed up on the hill and had our own hot tub, which we initially thought we wouldn't use, but it was gorgeous, with a view of the Pacific. The view was beautiful and calm, and we enjoyed sitting on the balcony. The room was very clean,...

We stayed one night in a King room with fireplace and hot tub on the patio under the stars - couldn't have been more relaxing! Mark and Angela were extremely nice and welcoming, even though we arrived just after check-in hours. The room was huge, and at the far end of the complex (#17). This made for great privacy, but...
