The two takeaways: 1) Location and 2) Kind staff. Every review with the litany of details about Post Ranch Inn are worth checking out, but the long and short of this is that it is a truly amazing place to visit and stay if you want rugged comfort along one of the most scenic parts of California coast. We stayed in an upper butterfly room, would upgrade to an ocean suite next time, just for the experience of that. The dining was fantastic, our experience with the falconry program and Antonio was top notch. This is a "do it!" place, great for couples to recharge and rest. So very lovely in every way.

We celebrated our 26th Anniversary, as with all our previous ones, at Post Ranch Inn. As usual, we were welcomed as old friends by the wonderful staff, including Tim Lee upon our arrival, as well as others at the check-in and our Bellman who has been at the Inn almost as long as we have been coming. One of the anticipated highlights of our visits is dining at Sierra Mar. Chef Augustine is beautifully carrying on the tradition. We reunited with Trevor, our favorite server. The wine experience has always been superb, and Matt made it so again as always. We were glad to see Sara back. And we very much enjoyed meeting and relying upon Savannah’s recommendations. She is friendly, knowledgeable obviously, and along with Matt and Sara made our wine selections very special. As we have said before in past reviews, Post Ranch Inn is our home away from home and has a special place in our lives. My wife Freddie also submitted a review but I wanted to weigh in as well to make sure both of the Wheeler family had their say!

What an amazing five star plus property! Unfortunately, we were only able to spend one night at Post Ranch Inn, but have already booked two nights next year! The setting, scenery, stargazing were all spectacular to make this a unique and one of a kind!

We’ve been going for the last 10 years and it is always a highlight of the year. If you cannot relax and wind down here, I do not know where you can. Everything is so well thought out and it captures the essence of the central coast.
