Post Ranch Inn – Bir Sur
Set on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this upscale, ranch-style boutique hotel is 1.6 miles from the Henry Miller Memorial Library.
The rustic-chic, TV-free rooms, suites and tree-houses have private decks with mountain or ocean views, and wood-burning fireplaces. They also have free minibars and Wi-Fi, plus iPod docks. Some have indoor and outdoor spa pools.
Free perks include full breakfast and loaner cars, as well as yoga, meditation and star-gazing classes. Other amenities include a spa with 2 cliff-top infinity pools, a swimming pool and a fitness center. There’s also a polished restaurant offering ocean-view dining.
Understated, serene, and exclusive, Post Ranch Inn is the ultimate romantic getaway. Clinging to the cliffs of Big Sur, the inn’s architecture is in perfect harmony with the stunning location. Post Ranch is a modern, streamlined haven of natural stone and wood, with glass everywhere so nothing impedes the magnificent views of the Pacific Ocean. From treehouses perched in the redwoods, to cottages with earth roofs dotted with wildflowers, each of the 40 unique guestrooms and three private houses shows an extraordinary attention to detail and sensitivity to its surroundings.
