This is the sort of place you don't want to recommend because you want to keep it all to yourself. Selfish, but true. I recommend everything about the place. It was our second visit and we are already booked again for May. If you want quiet and wildlife and beauty, this place is it. The staff is excellent and I...

We stayed 2 nights at Sea Ranche Lodge and had lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant Black Point Grill. It was really nice and the staff was friendly and so on. We paid our restaurant visits with visa card and gave the recommended tip. To our great surprise they have withdrawn more than the amount we have signed for...

The views are stunning. The restaurant view stunning. The grounds are amazing. However our room and our in laws rooms were very hot, and the screens were broken in both our rooms so there were flies everywhere. It was gross. And when we asked for help in fixing all they did was say they'd look for a fly swat. They...

Great experience overall. Only hitch was growling dog next door at 6:00 AM (you could hear it through the walls). Front desk staff never bothered to ask how my experience was. This was a missed opportunity on their part. Instead, I am telling you all here.

Gorgeous raw coastal beauty! Great place for hiking, biking, or just relaxing by the fire with family and friends. Good restaurant and spa. Seals, tide pools, galleries, wildlife! Perfect place to get away from busy city life and cell reception.

Great Experience! Just a bit far from the ocean, but overall very good stay. The food was great as was the breakfast! We did a walk to the ocean but it was a bit breezy so we didn't stay out long. Overall a great experience.

After reading several (negative) comments about the lodge, I was prepared for a poor to average experience. Fortunately, we got the best room and were very pleased with our stay overall. Yes, the décor is tired (circa 1950's), but our view and the window seats were just spectacular, so we could easily overlook that. The bathroom was nice and clean...

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Sea Ranch. The location is beautiful and very peaceful. The Sea Ranch Lodge is pleasant and relaxing. Don't expect deluxe accommodations but they are comfortable. We were disappointed in the food. Dinners were good but breakfast was poor to average. For example, my hash browns were under cooked and inedible.

Room was not clean, especially the Sea View Windows snd carpet. Dinner was very poor, had to send undercooked steak back and it return overcooked. Cooks were terrible and breakfast was not any better. This lodge has so much potential, but really needs some work. Would not eat there again and would not pay that much to stay. Too many...

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