We've been staying at the Mission Ranch long before it was remodeled, over 30 years. Even when it really was like staying on a working ranch there was everything to enjoy about this beautiful property and perfect location. The accommodations are now much more comfortable than they used to be but the hospitality, the restaurant and the service is unchanged. It has always been good. The staff is consistently accommodating, friendly and helpful. The included breakfast which used to be served in the restaurant is now hosted near the tennis courts. The choices are adequate but I must admit I enjoyed it more when it was held in the formal restaurant with the outdoor patio where you could enjoy the view.
It has been some time since the remodel and although the rooms are showing a little wear they are cozy and comfortably appointed. We stayed in the middle Meadow view Triplex on the lower floor. The room has a gas fireplace and a private patio where you can relax and enjoy the views and sunset. The piano bar is fun in the evenings and the restaurant food is excellent.
Things on the must see list include Point Lobos State Park, Ventana a short drive down and Coast Hwy, Big Sur state park and a stroll in the lovely town.
Don't forget to indulge in a fantastic sunset from the patio with a cocktail and an appetizer.
