We rented the cottage right by a running stream and it was amazing! So much room and the décor was beautiful. It was 2 stories so I was able to get up early and not wake my husband and go downstairs. Our son stayed in a regular room across a bridge from us that was gorgeous too. It was so...

Selected the Ranch at Laguna Beach to celebrate my birthday. The reviews on TripAdvisor were very good and there were many many hotels to choose from and I couldn't be happier that I decided on this one. It is secluded and wooded in a canyon adjacent to the ocean and away from all the traffic on Coast highway. For the...

The expression "it's the little things that count" does not apply to The Ranch at Laguna Beach because “everything" counts. Having recently sojourned there to convalesce from surgery I was greeted every morning to peaceful landscaped views of the canyon, a world away from the hustle and horns of Coast Highway. Owner Mark Christy described the decor as "casual elegance...

Perfect place for a 2 day getaway . The hotel is small but in a perfect location. The staff is extremely nice and helpful .The rooms are new and very well furnished. The overall atmosphere is very relaxed which is surprising since most properties with a attached golf course can be very stuffy .

Overall nice places. Lots of little things were great. But lots of little things were lacking. For example upon check in staff was very friendly and accommodating. The front desk clerk even asked which papers we'd like in the morning which I thought was a nice touch. We asked for all 3 that were available since we were on vacation...

We stayed here this late autumn, the scenery from the restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The room was very cozy, new, and inclusive of all we needed. We did have a problem with the TV and the safe box, notified the reception right as we were about to leave for a sight visit, and both issues which were immediately solved. Good...

This hotel/property is just absolutely gorgeous. Tucked off pacific coast highway, in a canyon, the scenery is incredible. The rooms are gorgeous (we had two villas for our family). The lobby/main house/restaurant are beautiful, too. All of the staff are incredibly gracious. This property has the potential to be five star - but it is not there yet. Housekeeping is...

We had our wedding on this incredible property and we were glad we did! When people think of Laguna Beach they think Beach. The Ranch has much more and of course the beach.Our guests were happy we were thrilled everything went so well. This place is luxurious without giving up the bohemian atmosphere of the Laguna Beach life.

John Thank you for your review and thank you for choosing us for your wedding. We are thrilled you and your guests enjoyed themselves on your special day. Please let us know when we can welcome you back for a visit! Best, The Ranch LB Team

Gorgeous remodel! The interior details are amazing. We celebrated 15 years here this week, spending two nights. The food, the decor, the quiet beautiful grounds has us anxious to go back. I almost cancelled because I was worried from a few reviews and pictures that the old, retro vibe remained. It is neither retro or old. The interiors are absolutely...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Our pristine 87-acre canyon oasis makes The Ranch at Laguna Beach one of Southern California's top resorts and spas. This romantic getaway, nestled just a short walk from one of Southern California's finest beaches, brings the best of coast and canyon together in one uniquely Laguna experience. Harvest Restaurant specializes in American and California style cuisine, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy food and drinks from the comfort of your room with in-room dining, or poolside soaking up the sun at the Pond Pool Bar. Spanning over 3,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space, including four treatment rooms and a 24 hour fitness center, Sycamore Spa captures the bohemian vibe of Laguna's laid-back beach lifestyle. Our 9-hole Laguna golf course and country club in Southern California is situated in what's arguably the most serene and natural setting in Orange County. The course is carved into the naturally dramatic and lush walls of Aliso and Wood Canyons. ... more   less
