This is my fourth time staying at Post Ranch Inn and by far the most memorable! I decided to provide an update as we stayed in a different room compared to prior visits. Due to the recent road closure north and south of Big Sur, there is currently no road access to visitors. Only locals and workers are allowed to...

Honestly, it doesn't get much better than the Post Ranch Inn! My wife and I went for our 10 year anniversary and I want to go back every day. The property is unbelievable, from the trails, to treehouse, to restaurant, to car service...We stayed in a treehouse for two nights and there was nothing to want for. Their bar and...

My husband had originally booked a one night stay back in March (pre-winter downpour and all) and learned that we wouldn't be able to drive up there like we had planned. The hotel provided a heli/meal package that seemed too good to pass up. Let me just say that the service, amenities and grounds convinced us of staying an additional...

Stayed here last year and forgot to review. We had a fabulous time for a couple of nights. The rooms are magnificent with a well stocked fridge, balcony onto coast line, fire and space. Bliss. The Restaurant is great for breakfast and dinner with service friendly and efficient. This place gets really busy, we tried to extend our stay but...

I get it. Post Ranch Inn doesn't have to cater to us mere mortals who have to pinch and save their pennies to afford a $1500+ per night stay...but jeez, at least pretend to have some sympathy for the rest of us. After taking the plunge to book a reservation at the lauded Post Ranch Inn this upcoming July, I...

Go for: eco-friendly, serenity, healthy living, nature trails, yoga and breathing in the blue infinity and salty air. Private decks and epitome of paradise with glorious views of the ocean and mountains. Leave feeling renewed. Repeat often. Visited several moons ago : )

Food that is as equal to any of the best known restaurants in the world,all set...

We have enjoyed Post Ranch as a couple and with friends for over 20 years. This trip to Post was the best yet. Pacific Coast Highway to the north and south effectively is closed leaving Big Sur closed off to through traffic. But....now you can take the Post Ranch helicopter directly to the ranch. We departed Monterey Airport and enjoyed...

Ask2416, Thank you for the gracious comments and we are grateful to have you as long time guests. This is a special time to visit as not many people ever get to see the Big Sur coast by air and then touch down at Post Ranch Inn. Arriving by air is truly VIP treatment and we love being able to...
