This lodge is located on the ocean side of the Pacific Coast Highway. The room included an outdoor grill, a microwave, a small refrigerator, a small coffee maker, and a wood burner in the room. The highlight of the room is the view. It's facing the ocean, and a large beautiful field full of wild flowers. You can walk down...

This was our second time staying at the lodge. Quiet, colorful and nice views. We enjoyed having our own patio and jacuzzi and BBQing with deer on one side and the ocean on the other. Day trips to many different places are easy from this location.

My wife and I stayed one night at the lodge and we so appreciated having the hot tub on the deck and an unobstructed view of the ocean. Chris and Alicia were so friendly and helpful. Everything went very well and we expect to return soon and often.

So cozy, very relaxing, hot tub while looking over the ocean; superb! The best of the north coast California style. Will be back! If you have the adventure bug, check off Gualala, Point Arena Lighthouse, Fort Ross State Park and Salt Point State Park or if you feel gambling, support Garcia River casino in the cute town of Gualala

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....
