Post Ranch Inn

The Post Ranch Inn is a 39-room hotel that offers an intimate stay for nature lovers who want to enjoy the natural beauty of their surroundings in a comfortable and romantic setting.

The Inn is built into the cliffs of Big Sur offering the benefits of organic architecture. It is an ideal destination for those who want to rejuvenate, and couples who want to reconnect in an idyllic environment. This is not a family destination as guests must be 18 years old or older.

Accommodations at Post Ranch Inn

The Post Ranch Inn offers a unique collection of rooms to choose from.

Cliff House rooms feature a deck suspended over the cliffs and glass-walled bedrooms offer the feeling of soaring above it all. These rooms are also equipped with a wood burning fireplace perfect for those romantic evenings.

Ocean House is a favorite choice as it offers magnificent ocean views and extras like the large outdoor hot tub. Other places to take in the panoramic ocean views include the bed, bath, the window seat, or terrace.

Pacific Suites are located in circular two-story buildings which include two 960 square foot suites with private entrances. Enjoy ocean views from the living, bedroom, and even from the shower and large soaking tub. These suites also feature an outdoor hot tub on a private deck.

Coast Houses are circular free standing buildings that seems to sprout from the ground among the redwoods. Each guestroom in these two-story structures enjoys a private entrance. Guests enjoy unmatched views of the Big Sur coastline, whether lying in bed, sitting on the couch, soaking in the tub, or relaxing on the terrace.

The Tree Houses are also free standing and are built on stilts nine feet off the forest floor. These accommodations are reached via a stairway. Each room offers king-size sleeping, and a skylight to watch the stars from bed.

The Mountain Houses are circular in design like the Coast Houses which are inspired by the redwoods. These duplexes offer private entrances and stunning views of the Santa Lucia Peaks and Ventana Wilderness.

Peak House provides an unmatched private mountain view from a deck suspended over the top of the ridge. The glass walled bedroom lets you soak in the views from bed, and also has a hot tub outdoors that overlooks the mountains.

Butterfly Rooms get their name from the unique architectural shape of the buildings – like a butterfly with outstretched wings. Beneath each wing are 3 floors, each with a private guestroom with its own entrance. These rooms enjoy views of the forest and Santa Lucia mountains from a private deck.

A stay at the Post Ranch Inn really is a one-of-a-kind experience.

Along with the above accommodations, a private two-bedroom home is also available. The South Coast Home is a beautifully re-designed two-bedroom house that offers spacious accommodations for two couples. It features a private terrace, floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the mountains with a water view of the Pacific. The fully equipped kitchen and separate eating area and large living area make it a perfect option for entertaining. The two master bedrooms offer plenty of privacy, too.

The Post Ranch Inn sits high atop the cliffs of Big Sur, above the Pacific Ocean. You won’t find a more beautiful setting. All 39 rooms blend rustic elegance, with comfort, privacy, and panoramic views of the ocean, mountains, or both.  They do provide complementary wi-fi, but in this setting you may be too busy doing other things to use it.
