The Cliff House is by far one of the most popular accommodation options at Post Ranch Inn. The Cliff House has heated floors, a wood-burning fireplace, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a private deck that hangs over the cliffs. This accommodation also features a king size bed, an outdoor hot tub, an indoor spa tub, complimentary snacks from the mini-bar, complimentary wireless internet access, and more. While the structure itself is undeniably beautiful, just wait until you see the view. From morning until night, the Cliff House offers a front row seat to the stunning Pacific Ocean. Every evening, travelers can watch the sun descend from the comfort of their private deck (on the comfiest lounge chairs, we might add).

However, the Cliff House – and all of its extravagance – is only one of the lodging options at Post Ranch Inn. Pacific Suites offer many of the same delights as the Cliff House. This two-story building houses two suites for guests to stay in. The circular building structure allows for all around glorious views of the surrounding ocean and mountains. Ocean House is another luxurious accommodation that features a king size bed, a wood-burning fireplace, an indoor spa tub, a private deck, and panoramic views of the Pacific from everywhere in the home. Those wishing to see the sea, but also be among the wildflowers should opt to stay at Ocean House. Coast House is the final accommodation that showcases up close and personal views of the Pacific.

Mountain Views
