Sea Ranch Lodge

Situated on a bluff overlooking the rugged Pacific Coast, Sea Ranch Lodge features 20 spacious and smartly appointed guest rooms, each with its own ocean view. The rooms typify the Sea Ranch style, with natural cedar and redwood paneling, and gas-burning stoves and vintage oak furnishings make for a cozy stay. There are a few trails that begin at the lodge, and continue through meadows, woods, and coastline.
