My hubby and I have stayed on the California Coast from Fort Bragg to Cambria and many in between. We were looking for a place we could drive to easily in the stormy weather and unwind for just one night. Little did we know, we found a hidden gem in Fort Ross, just north of Jenner, CA.

Room was amazing, we stayed up on the hill and the views could not be topped. Hosts were awesome and it is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. Close to Historic Ft Ross. We will definitely be going back.

The best of inn keepers.......quiet clean relaxing. If you need the Internet, connection is poor. However, being away from it, was the best thing ever. Get off the grid and get requited with your spouse, yourself etc. will certainly go back.
