Stayed in room #3 with a beautiful view of the ocean and enjoyed dinner and breakfast at the lodge. Although the walls seemed thin and the service relaxed and a bit short staffed, everyone was very friendly and made the wait worth it. It is very conveniently situated near the Sea Ranch Golf Course as well. We enjoyed 18 holes...

Thank you for your review: We truly enjoy the opportunity to host golfers for the links course at the Sea Ranch. A challenging course with majestic views and greens that have play to the ocean. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Sea Ranch Lodge.

If your looking for ocean front - ocean views this Lodge is fantastic! Absolutely beautiful grounds with lots of walking trails to experience the raw, rugged coast. All rooms have amazing views. Very comfortable, large rooms with modern bathroom. Coffee and tea in room. Must request a bathrobe if you want. My husband and I got massages while there (request...

I love the retro style of the Lodge, which has been updated just enough in my opinion. The big bed, spectacular views and handy gas wood stove create the perfect ambiance for romance - except that because you can hear your neighbor snoring you know that you're going to have to keep your noise down. You can't abandon yourself and...

Thank you for your review: Thank you for choosing the Sea Ranch Lodge for your getaway. We are glad you enjoyed the views and fireplace's cozy ambiance for romance. The beauty of a wall that affords no view to the next room is indeed the mystery of it and the anonymity the wall provides...noise through 1960's architectural construction unfortunately does...

We had a lovely visit to sea ranch.The view from room 17 was awesome and like a painted picture. The land around the lodge gives you access to the beach and walking trails.

Enjoyed disconnecting from the world and reconnecting with nature and my spouse. No TV to distract and beautiful trails along the coast right outside our door. The room was spacious, bed comfy and the views from the big picture window incredible. Service was friendly and good.

I decided to spend a night at Sea Ranch for a quick getaway and to hike the coastal trail there. The afternoon on Feb 5 was rainy and windy when I got there. Although the reception area is nice, the communal sitting rooms could definitely use updating. The 60's furniture I'm sure is original, but how about cleaning the upholstery...

Outstanding service. The views are great - you can see the Pacific Ocean from any room. Just outside your room are many trails along the coast, along the bluffs, down to the beach, & during the season, you can see wildflowers.

I have always had an image of Sea Ranch as a calming and bucolic place. We were not disappointed. The views of the sea and the sense of space are quite amazing. The accommodations are quite nice, really vintage in some ways, but the walls are very thin.....surprising that they could not figure out how to update the original building...

The setting was spectacular and we enjoyed just being together. Unfortunately, however, we could hear EVERYTHING going on next door :( --we were in room 13.

“Remember that this lodge was built in the 60's, so soundproofing and insulation is minimal compared to newer structures.”
