My husband and I are no strangers to Fort Ross Lodge, having stayed there numerous times precisely because of the location, views, hospitality, cleanliness and friendly hosts. You'll often find yourself on one or the other extreme side of a very long spectrum of lodging options along the Sonoma coast; it's either super bougie & spendy "Post Ranch" experiences or...

Love room #5 with king bed, fireplace and hot tub. Plenty of space to bbq a dinner with refrigerator and microwave. The best part is the ocean view! The innkeepers are great and always available with extra towels and firewood.

My wife and I chose to stay here for her birthday and could not have been at a better lodge. The couple that runs the lodge are very nice and accommodating and even had snacks and refreshments in the reception area. My wife and I have stayed at oceanfront hotels before, but we are definitely coming here from now on....

It's funny, I write this review almost reluctantly because I'd love to keep this beautiful getaway my special, secret place. That's not fair to the innkeepers Chris & Alicia, though. This property is a hidden gem on the Sonoma Coast. Unpretentious and simple, comfortable and peaceful with beautiful scenery surrounding it. Rooms are more than comfortable and little extras abound....

We stayed in one of the lovely rooms on the "Hill", and had surprisingly commanding views of the ocean. So peaceful and beautiful from sunset to sunrise, and the moon glow over the water was spectacular! The room was lovely with huge comfy king bed, large patio, spa tub, fireplace, sauna, BBQ grill, and a fabulous view! we picked up...

We stayed in room 16 which is closest to the water with a hot tub on the private outdoor patio for my partner's 50th birthday. It was an incredible stay and the lodgekeepers went out of their way to make our weekend special. There was a Happy Birthday banner and chocolates in the room, complimentary sparkling wine, and fresh baked...

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.

I almost hate to give a good review as it will give away our secret hide away. The rooms are large and clean, the views are spectacular and the inn keepers and staff are awesome.
