We loved our night at The Fort Ross Lodge. The location in Jenner was perfect and our room clean and comfy, with a clear view to the ocean. It's hard to beat falling asleep to the sound of the surf, which we could see from our bed. Alicia and Chris are quintessential hosts, very friendly and accommodating, who surprised my...

My husband and I had a wonderful time. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. We hope to return again soon. I have already recommended this place to friends and family. If you are looking to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet, this place is perfect.

My experience was great, as usual! Immaculate rooms, clean and beautiful grounds with the ocean in the background lulling you into relaxation and sleep! What else could you ask for??? Ok, how about friendly, kind and funny inkeepers! There! Boom!

For nearly 20 years, I've been going to Timber Cove -- just 2 miles north of here -- for romantic and relaxing weekend getaways from San Francisco. But after Timber Cove remodeled last year and removed all the in-room hot tubs, I was like WTF? Fortunately, I found Fort Ross Lodge, which is practically next door, but.... SO MUCH BETTER....

We so appreciate the great review! We strive for total hospitality experience! We do apologize the wifi isn't working that well, We are working diligently to get that resolved. We are out in a remote area here, and the options for wi-fi are extremely limited. We are so happy to hear we have some new great guests that will stop...

The inn keepers were super friendly and efficient. Lovely grounds. Room was well-designed and everything worked. Great patio for a little barbeque and watching the ocean and sunset. Hot tub and sun room/game room were nice touches. Price very affordable for what you get. Would recommend especially for mid-week stay and off-peak season stay when the place is not fully...

We stayed for one night, the second week of April in a room with King Bed and hot tub on the patio. The place was beautiful and relaxing, just what we needed to get away from the city. The view of the ocean from the room/hot tub and property was so good that we cancelled our reservations at a local...

The Fort Ross Lodge was one of the best accommodations I have ever stayed in. It started with Chris and Alicia's friendly smiles at check in paired with a bottle of Champagne! The room was excellent. All aspects were clean including the jacuzzi bath and sauna (which we were initially worried about). The room was the perfect size and overlooked...

This lodge is located on the ocean side of the Pacific Coast Highway. The room included an outdoor grill, a microwave, a small refrigerator, a small coffee maker, and a wood burner in the room. The highlight of the room is the view. It's facing the ocean, and a large beautiful field full of wild flowers. You can walk down...
