Post Ranch Inn

reviewer's rating ★★★★★

In Short Big Sur and the Post Ranch Inn were definitely the highlight of our trip.

To ElaborateFor our honeymoon, we chose to do something that involved less travel than we had initially planned (we had originally planned to go to Greece/Italy). We ultimately landed on doing a trip down the California coast. Big Sur and the Post Ranch Inn were definitely the highlight of our trip. Each room is essentially a standalone treehouse or water-view cottage. The property is incredibly private and secluded in a way that lends itself perfectly to a honeymoon stop. I will say that 3 nights is the most I would recommend for the Post Ranch Inn. Aside from relaxing in the spectacular infinity hot tubs, visiting the spa or going for a hike in the beautiful hills, there is a not a lot else to do off the property. The town of Big Sur itself is also tiny and there are maybe 1-2 other restaurants worth visiting (otherwise you are eating breakfast, lunch and dinner on the Post Ranch Inn property). I would recommend that if you are doing a Pacific Coast trip you also visit / start in Napa (Yountville in particular) and stop for 2 nights at the San Ysidro Ranch in Montecito (outside Santa Barbara).

IN SHORT  Surreal! This is rustic, luxury at its best. It's also California at its best. Everyone should go once!

TO Elaborate Totally recommend for a honeymoon. It's a romantic, mountain retreat with the most beautiful views. We stayed for 3 nights and did not want to leave. It's so relaxing that people wear their spa robes everywhere! We had an incredible wine and cheese tasting and then massages one day... The spa experience was phenomenal. You can hike and run the property and can even opt to hike to breakfast, spotting deer and birds along the way- a beautiful start to the day. Our room had its own outdoor jacuzzi and porch as well as a fireplace. We did tons of hiking, lounging by the pool, and simply driving around Big Sur is fun because it's so beautiful. Our only regret is we didn't have dinner there. We went to Post Ranch Inn, but wish we stayed on property instead.
