“Very Restful”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We have been going to Sea Ranch since it opened, and just love it. So peaceful and restful compared to our busy lives. Remodel is nice. We consider Sea Ranch historical and don't want to see much change, but upkeep and maintenance is a must. The management returned our charging cord to us. Very thoughtful!!!!! Joan Simpkins

Arrived in the afternoon after driving few hours in the mountains
Very beautiful wood structure and amazing views from the sea view room.

The hotel restaurant have very good food and is highly recommended.

You have plants of places to walk around the property and it's pretty nice experience

Natural and quiet

Room Tip: You must stay in a sea view room , that the whole thing I stayed in room #3

I expected a more friendly atmosphere at Sea Ranch. The setting is undeniably beautiful and the room was quite nice. However, I felt that people staying at the Lodge, and paying quite hefty prices to do so, are made to feel like second class citizens in comparison to the property owners. We mistakenly walked onto the wrong path while hiking as were accosted by a very angry woman saying we had no right to be there. Furthermore, I feel that patrons of the Lodge should have access to recreational facilities at Sea Ranch. Otherwise, there is little to do other than hike or look at the view. I definitely will not recommend this to friends who might be coming this way.

Dear Barbara G,

I apologize you were accosted by an angry woman when hiking on the trails. To be honest this is a first I've heard of a local Sea Ranchers not welcoming patrons of the Lodge. In response to access to the recreational facilities I will begin to see how we can make this a reality. Thank you for taking the time to give us some constructive feedback that will allow us to make the overall operation run smoother.

Awesome property on the coast with incredibly relaxing rooms. Loved the in-room fireplace and large window looking out onto the bluffs and the ocean beyond. Didn't have the best weather when we were there but it was still a great retreat!

Dear Joe,

Thank you for taking the time to share your great comments on your recent stay. I'm sorry the weather didn't cooperate while visiting. Being new into the area I've heard from a lot of the local Sea Ranchers that the weather has been a bit cooler this summer than recent ones.

Room 1 shares a wall with a public bathroom. While sitting on the window seat reading, as you lean against the wall you can hear people going to the bathroom!!!! very unsettling!!! Also, the only winery in the area is not too inviting. The grassy area is brown, and the vines as you drive up the hill are dead, in July the vines should be green, like the ones on the hill next to it. Dinner amazing, yet forgot my daughters birthday, breakfast tasty, flies were a nuisance though.

Dear Jill B,

I apologize that your experience was anything less than satisfying. Our goal is to not only meet the needs of each and every guest we serve, but to exceed your expectations to make your stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.

Please know that your feedback is extremely valuable to us. Feedback such as yours assists us in improving our service and property on a daily basis. I apologize we missed an opportunity to celebrate your daughters birthday.

Regarding the brown grass we unfortunately cannot water the grass due to the water conservation, and I'm sorry you did not enjoy the winery, but I'm unsure which one you went too?

It is our hope that you will give us another opportunity to serve you. Again, I apologize for the inconveniences during your stay and hope to see you during your next visit.

We enjoyed our time immensely and would recommend Sea Ranch Lodge for anyone wanting to get away and enjoy some tranquil time. The front desk was very helpful, and while the food is great the service in the restaurant could use some work.

We loved this place. Very quiet and peaceful which is what we were going for. Nobody bothers you and leaves it up to you to decide your stay. It is a bit of a drive. Watch out for speed traps in towns
