“We Love to Stay at Sea Ranch Lodge”
Reviewed 27 April 2012 via mobile

We have been enjoying this lodge, its amenities, the excellent food/ drink, clean rooms, great views of the Pacific ocean and coast as well as wild flowers, birds and deer and especially the friendly, accommodating staff for several years. I inadvertently left a foldup luggage carrier in the room (#14, not yet remodelled, but very nice). On arriving home I called the lodge, described where I'd left it and offered to pay the shipping. The receptionist was most pleasant, said she'd get it from the room immediately and send it at once without charge. The next day I received it in the US mail (we live about 70 mles away). There is a nice gift shop open from 10 am to about 4 pm. A complimentary SF Chronicle newspaper was outside our door each morning. A good breakfast selection is included in the price of the room (complimentary).

Stayed April 2012

Stayed here for one night in one of their newly renovated rooms. Found the interiors of the room and lobby area to be very well done. The staff was hospitable and friendly. Also had Breakfast and dinner on the property and thought it was fantastic! Only minor complaint would be with the thin towels in the bathroom.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I'm delighted that you found the Lodge and the restaurant to your liking. I will look into the matter of the towels. We are somewhat limited in our options because of our location and the fact that there is no laundry on premises. If we can do better on this we certainly will. We look forward to serving you again in the future.

Absolutely gorgeous location. You have to decide to take what this older property has to offer and enjoy the serenity and wild coast that it is located on. The building is older and the rooms quite basic but the trade off is worth it. The bar is fun and the restaurant is terrific. Great service and the food very enjoyable. This is not a 5 star resort with all the amenities, in some ways it is even better - it is a step back in time. Don't stay here if you want pillow top beds and feather pillows, stay here because you want to get away from it all.

Room Tip: Take an upstairs room as the noise travels between walls and floors.

Thank you for this refreshing review. Indeed the wild coast here is the chief attraction, and I'm very grateful that you were able to appreciate that. That said, we are upgrading the rooms to make a more comfortable experience for all, including said pillow top mattresses and feather pillows. Thank you again and we look forward to your return if your travels bring you back.

This place is in a great location but is in need of an update. It is very 70's. The beds are small and not very comfortable. The restaurant is awesome.

Thank you for this review. I wanted to update you on our progress. The rooms are undergoing a thorough renovation, including new Cal-king beds, all new pillows and soft goods, and completely new bathrooms. I think you might find the results much more to your liking. Thank you again for taking the time to review us and we hope to see you again sometime soon.

We got married at The Sea Ranch Lodge in September 2011. And if we could do our wedding weekend all over again, we wouldn't change a single thing. Everything was perfect. The lodge itself is straight out the pages of DWELL magazine. Rustic modern style with amazing architecture that effortlessly blends in with the rugged landscape of the Sonoma Coast. The setting couldn't have been more ideal for what we were after. As for the staff, they were outstanding. Asuza is an exceptional talent with an impressive resume. She was remarkably responsive throughout the months leading up to our event. Patient with all our questions, quick to offer recommendations, and always eager to help us bring our vision to life. On the day of our event, Azusa, Greg, and their entire team surpassed our already high expectations. Our guests constantly commented on their great service, warm hospitality and attention to detail. The whole day and night flowed perfectly - ceremony on the bluff, champagne by the barn, cocktails in the solarium, and dinner and dancing in the Fireside Room. Dinner was delicious. The restaurant is all about local sourcing. Seriously local - like no wines from Napa, Sonoma only. We served rack of lamb and halibut - both were exceptional. The chef even prepared a custom dessert just for our menu. It was truly a wonderful weekend for everyone - not just the bride and groom. Even a month after our wedding we're still getting gushing calls and e-mails from our guests. The Sea Ranch may not be for everyone, but if you're a locavore after a laid back vibe, with a bit of mid-century modernity, tucked in one of the most beautiful corners of California - I can't imagine more perfect place to make memories that will surely last a lifetime.

Room Tip: Room 20 is the only room without a view. All others have spectacular views.
