Had an amazing experience this weekend at the Fort Ross Lodge. We stayed in room 18 on the hill, Jacuzzi tub, fire place, sauna, Cal king bed and a view to die for. The place was clean and tidy staff super friendly, firewood is provided and so is charcoal for you own webber barbq. Can't say enough good things about...

Our room was very clean and comfortable but not necessarily luxurious. The staff was friendly and the rate was great for a quick weekend getaway. The lodge is centrally located to so many adventure filled locations. The city of Fort Ross, however, does not have very many attractions or eateries other than the historical landmark itself.

My love and I, plus some other friends, all rented rooms here for a three-night stay. Overall, the rooms are clean, spacious, and comfortable. It was cold when we arrived, and there was firewood for our fireplace ready to go. There is more firewood near the office too, on an honor system, which worked well as we had the fireplace...

Fort Ross Lodge management not friendly at all, find another hotel\lodge around for half a price with better conditions and nice attitude. We have arrived 2 hours before official check in and were told rooms is not ready (no problem). After sitting for 2 hours in front of the room (nobody got in for cleaning) we took a key from...

The Fort Ross Lodge is perfect for a romantic overnight getaway. We stayed in room #5 with a king bed, wood-burning fireplace and private hot tub. It is clean, cozy, and perfect for a night away. Also, I mentioned to the managers that it was my husband's birthday and they decorated the room with "Happy Birthday" signs and included a...

The couple who ran this lodge were so kind and friendly, but it just was not what we expected. We anticipated a view with an outdoor hot tub. There was no view, even if we tried walking the overgrown path toward the bluff. Maybe it was just our room, but we did not have a great view. The room was...

I liked the pictures before we came to stay, but the reality is so much better! The room we had was such a nice change from a "motel"- Innkeepers Chris and Melissa go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and welcome. The room had everything we needed- big plush towels, besides two bath sheets for the using...

Spacious clean rooms with thoughtful little touches, ambiance galore, wood fireplace, deep tubs, patio/BBQ. DO take the time to walk out to he end of the bluff up and front with the Pacific Ocean.

I had a perfect stay was at Fort Ross Lodge! I've stayed at several places around Jenner and Russian River, and was expecting something fine, perhaps a bit depressing, but with a great location. But it was so much better than that! Extremely comfortable and large bed, beautiful fireplace, incredible views, and very friendly staff from reservation to check in/out....

My son was at Fort Ross for an overnight school trip in November. I stayed at the Lodge for two nights and it was great! Amazing views and fantastic service! It was cozy, clean, and I loved how secluded it felt. The BBQ on my private deck was a nice touch, especially because there aren't any restaurants close by! Perfect...
