This is a lovely hotel with views of the Pacific from most rooms, very quiet and relaxing, real log fires and hot tubs in many rooms. We loved our stay there, receptionist was very enthusiastic and helpful... but... reception is only open during the day, take something for breakfast as there is nothing to eat at the Lodge other than...

3 * The Fort Ross Lodge is between Fort Ross Historic park and Salt Point State Park, 1.7 miles north of the turn off for Fort Ross. Even though the address says “Jenner” it is actually a half hour (13 miles) north of the town of Jenner. The lodge consists of several buildings which are mostly 4 units each all...

From the first moment we pulled in to this lodge to the time we left, everything was perfect. The managers were fabulous and very helpful when we checked in. The room was so spacious and had everything we needed--even a bar-b-que! The view was stunning, and we ended up sitting on the patio, watching the sunset and sipping wine. Comfy...

This was a lovely location to do wine tasting, relax, be off the phone grid and enjoy the beautiful coastal range and views. There are not that many spots as there are less tourists, but we really enjoyed the hot tub, BBQ, fire place and location. Dinning & breakfast is either at Alexander's up the road or on your own....

We traveled to the Coast over Valentine's Day weekend only to find out there was a disastrous reservation glitch at a different lodging we had elected to celebrate Valentine's and there was no room reserved or available for us. The manager at the other lodging phoned everywhere for miles around. The ONLY room available on the entire coast was at...

Great Lodges to stay right near the water. They have jacuzzi's right outside your back door. We've been here several times already and always enjoyed the trip. It's very peaceful here. Friendly staff too!!

This fully equipped lodge is located right above the surf--beautiful to watch during the day and lovely to listen to at night. We enjoyed listening to the surf as we relaxed at night with windows open. All necessary amenities were provided--even hot cookies when we checked in! We appreciated the privacy of the lodge.

We spent 3 nights here and had a very relaxing stay. We stayed at the lodge. All accommodations here are arranged in 4-plex buildings. The rooms are large enough for a queen bed, small round table, two chairs, two night stands, cabinet that has a microwave and TV. The bathroom has a coffee pot. Two wine glasses, a small cutting...

We stayed here November 3-4-and 5th 2014. We have stayed here before several times and have never been disappointed. It is a bit on the rustic side and some what secluded. So if you are used to 5 star Ritzes this may not be the place for you. But we just love the place. It is right on the coast...
