I stayed one night at Post Ranch Inn in one of the Treehouses called 'Harlan' as part of my honeymoon and if you think seeing the Grand Canyon takes your breath away I recommend taking an inhaler for Post Ranch Inn. Every inch of the property is perfectly designed, you are made to feel part of the nature that surrounds...

This was our first visit to the the Post Ranch Inn. I chose this place as our lodging in Big Sur during my engagement weekend.

We were guests of the Post Ranch Inn in September 2013. While visiting friends in San Francisco, we had a few unplanned days (Sunday - Thursday) and found this amazing place on Trip advisor. We took a beautiful drive to Big Sur, stopped for wine and cheese in Carmel, and finished the long drive to the inn. We were greeted...

Gorgeous setting, fabulous food, serene location and excellent service- what more could you want? The room was beautiful, with a pre-stocked fireplace, great coffee, wine, cheese and a wonderful bathtub. The outdoor infinity tubs were also gorgeous. My husband and I relaxed, hiked, ate and had a wonderful time together. I would recommend this place over and over! Breakfast is...

The room we had was nothing short of drop-dead gorgeous. completely private - beautiful mountain views - soaking tub on the deck... couldn't have been nicer. Breakfast was very very good - plenty of choices and delicious. Unfortunately the same could not be said about the dinners. The lst night we had the 4-course tasting menu...food was OK at best.....

We stayed at Post Ranch Inn the month it opened, (when infinity pools hadn't started trending and garden to table kitchens were a new idea,) so were forgiving of anything that wasn't quite perfect. Subsequently, the price has skyrocketed and it has found it's way into every travel Top Hotel list, so it seems to have gone from being a...

Let me begin by stating that I didn't really have any expectations for the property except that it was highly recommended by various websites. When we arrived for a two night stay, we were greeted kindly and given a glass of champagne and the typical forms to sign. Then we were left alone at the table to wait for our...

The location, view, food, and service, were extraordinary! My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary there. The spa services were also fantastic! The bed was not as comfortable as I hoped it would be, and the bathroom was very poorly lit. I still rate this property as excellent, because everything else strongly exceeded our expectations!

We spent one night at Post Ranch Inn, which just wasn't long enough! As you would expect from somewhere in this price range every detail had been carefully thought through, and nothing was too much trouble. Our treehouse was such a beautiful hideaway, the perfect place to relax and admire the scenery. It really didn't matter that we didn't have...
