The Sea Ranch Lodge sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Sonoma County just south of Mendocino County. The view is incomparable! The Sea Ranch is criss-crossed with miles of hiking trails over its ten miles. Bring your boots, jeans, jacket, hat, and sunblock. Oh, maybe a pair of slacks for dinner, but all is casual there. The...

Friends had recommended Sea Ranch to us, so we wanted to check it out. First of all, it's a breathtakingly beautiful area, both in terms of the setting and the architecture of the Sea Ranch houses. Sea ranch is totally non-commercial, but the little town of Gualala just to the north has all the services you might need. The Sea...

This place is beautiful even in pouring rain. Went with my sister and we had a great time relaxing, eating, exploring. We drove to point arena light house when it was raining to hard to be outside, very dramatic and beautiful. We loved it

Sea Ranch Lodge is a great property, connected to miles of walking trails on a gorgeous strip of the Pacific Ocean. Beautiful bluffs and amazing views. We loved our room with its vintage style gas fireplace and corner window that looked out on the ocean. The one caveat is that it is a tad pricey for what you get. There's...

Dear Heidi, Thank you for your review. We are glad you got to experience the beauty of the north Sonoma coast with us at the Sea Ranch Lodge.

Our stay here for New Years weekend could not have been more restful and stress free. Staff was great, food was incredible and though it was a busy weekend, we felt isolated enough to relax and enjoy the natural beauty around us. If you are looking for a place with a busy lobby, TV and music blaring and a corner...

We really enjoyed staying at the Sea Ranch Lodge. Our room was wonderful. We spent several afternoons watching the sun set from our window seat. The food was good but the views were great. We will come back.

I love Sea Ranch--it is an opportunity to check out of the everyday world, and relax. Great value for money. This is not an adventure hotel--it is the opportunity to be present to the sea and sky in comfort.

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