The Post Ranch Inn is an iconic resort located in Big Sur, California. It has been a favorite destination for celebrities and Hollywood stars as well as a retreat for creative professionals. The resort is the perfect getaway place with its amazing views, luxurious accommodations and relaxing atmosphere.
The Post Ranch Inn is situated on the edge of the Ventana Wilderness in the Santa Lucia Mountains of central California. The resort’s architecture was inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s “organic architecture” principles and features a number of sustainable design elements such as solar panels, geothermal heating and cooling systems, natural ventilation and reclaimed wood from old-growth redwood trees.
The hotel offers guests access to more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) of hiking trails through the Ventana Wilderness, including some that are only accessible via foot or on horseback. Guests can also explore nearby Point Lobos State Reserve which has a number of scenic trails, beach accesses and tidepools that are home to sea lions.
Sitting on the oceanfront, the Inn is a favorite among celebrities and film stars from around the world.
The resort is focused on providing a “forest stay” experience, which includes its surrounding environment as an integral part of the hotel. It focuses on sourcing products locally, using environmentally sustainable practices, and recycling its waste throughout the year. From flooring to cleaning supplies to food services, the resort is self-sufficient and uses primarily local resources.
The resort has received mixed reviews, with praise for its environmentally sustainable features, such as energy and water conservation measures and its recycling policies, but criticism for its lack of public transportation options to get around the resort.
