Rustic coastal seclusion.
Post Ranch Inn is set atop the cliffs of Big Sur, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Once a working ranch, the resort now offers 40 private lodgings nestled along the cliff-edge and among the surrounding forest.
Insider Tip

Check out the Chef's Garden for an inside look at what the chef at Sierra Mar is growing and putting into dishes each night.

Where You’re Staying

Freestanding rooms and suites are set across the grounds and are built with reclaimed materials. Accommodations blend into their environments, with some offering decks suspended over the cliffs, curved beamed roofs, or circular architecture. Tree Houses are built nine feet off the forest floor and offer mountain views.

Where to Dine

Sierra Mar offers a daily changing menu with dishes created from ingredients foraged locally from both the coastline and nearby mountains as well as those grown on-site in our Chef's Garden. Enjoy an expansive award-winning wine cellar. The restaurant also offers infinite views of the Pacific Ocean.

Where to Relax

Lounge by two heated infinity pools across the grounds with views of the Pacific Ocean. Post Ranch Spa’s treatment rooms provide views of the nearby Ventana Mountains framed by redwood trees. Treatments include massages, facial treatments, specialized therapies, and intuitive healing arts. Traditional Shaman Sessions help to cleanse negative energy and promote wellbeing. Additional headed lap pool also available.

What To Do

Practice yoga or meditation in a private session. Accompany a hiking guide on a customized tour of the Santa Lucia Mountains. Get up close and personal with a variety of falcons through the resort's falconry program. Visit the Post Gallery & Sculpture Garden.
