Fodor's Expert Review Inn at Newport Ranch

31502 N. Hwy. 1, Fort Bragg, California, 95437, USA Fodor's Choice

Attention to detail in both design and hospitality make for an incomparable stay at this 2,000-acre working cattle ranch with 1½ miles of private coastline. Two-story redwood trees add structure and beauty to the suites, and the beds and windows in all the rooms are positioned to take maximum advantage of the mesmerizing bluff-top views. Horseback riding, hiking the ranch's hillside and beach trails, and tastings at Pacific Star Winery next door are among the activities available during the day. Come late afternoon you can enjoy cocktails (weather permitting) at a fire pit overlooking the ocean, and if you're disinclined to head to Mendocino or Fort Bragg for dinner you can arrange for an on-site meal.
