The magical Post Ranch Inn occupies 100 acres of wild heath, redwoods and hiking trails in the heart of Big Sur, a breathtaking 1,200 feet above the Pacific Ocean. You reach it by winding along iconic Highway One, passing cliffs, beaches and stunning overlooks. It's a journey to savor, trumped only by your arrival.

Wow- blown away by how bad this place was. My wife and I are very seasoned travelers- we've been everywhere. Always heard about how great this place was, so the last time we were in Big Sur we decided to try lunch there. We know good food, from the most expensive, to the great cheap stuff you occasionally stumble upon. To say this lunch was a culinary disaster would be to flatter it. I assume the chef was away- perhaps he flung himself into the sea in despair- and that monkeys had taken over the 'kitchen'. Whatever the circumstances were, I've never encounter a fish cooked in such a way that it had the texture of toothpaste, lying sadly on the bottom of a bowl, submerged in the runoff water of the limp, tasteless vegetables around it. When I pointed this out to the server, she said I was looking at 'bean paste'. Ah, you say there's waterlogged bean paste cleverly submerged under my fish? Sounds delicious. However, no, that's actually the fish. I poked at it for her. Even she was disgusted. She offered to bring out another one, but I refused such a fantastic offer. Instead, I chose to try the steak. Ever have a steak made from such a poor cut of meat that it turns to mealy grits in your mouth? Couldn't finish it. It was just so absolutely terrible my wife and I had to laugh about it. All these years we'd head of how great the PRI was... and now we know. It's crap. If you're in Big Sur and want the views and the ambience, go to Napenthe. The food is pretty good, the view is spectacular, and it's family-owned and run by some wonderfully friendly people. If you want some truly outstanding food, go to the new gem The Roadhouse. It's amazing creole food cooked up by a genius chef from New Orleans. It's so good we ended up staying an extra day just to eat breakfast and dinner there again. Very unpretentious (unlike the buckets of pretension you'll find at the Post Ranch), very friendly atmosphere, AMAZING FOOD. I think the Post Ranch was once the fanciest place around- perhaps in the mid-90's- but now it's a sad relic that needs a complete overhaul and a big rethink.

Google maps location is slightly off. It's actually closer to the Ventana Inn but we were still able to find it. Call ahead and make reservations. Ask for the tables by the window which will give you an amazing view! Standard 3 course fixed price menu for lunch ($40) but the food selection is amazing. Had the wagyu steak and it was fabulous! Enjoy the views as they are truly breathtaking.

I had the opportunity to spend one night in one of the Peak houses at The Post Ranch Inn and felt I had an appetizer and now want more days and nights in this incredible hotel. Greeted by friendly staff at the Reception area, offered refreshments while registering. Our valet took our luggage and drove us up to our house, completely explained and pointed out the amenities on the 98 acre property and in our house. It was such a beautiful, serene setting, we didn't even want to wander around. So peaceful - only the sound of birds. Near sunset, we strolled over to the Sierra Mar dining room - an architectural treat of glass, steel and wood - and enjoyed a five course culinary dinner that was a work of art and the best I have had. It had been so quiet around our house, we felt like we were the only guests and were amazed that the dining room was full. Many of the ingredients grown in their own organic garden. Our waitress was very professional and enjoyed explaining every dish - timed perfectly. As we walked back to our house, the stars seemed so close we felt we could touch them. The Peak house was beautifully stocked with fabulous soaps, lotions, refreshments in the refrigerator, plush robes and slippers and the bed was divine. There are no televisions or phones. We made a fire in the fireplace and just relished the evening. In the morning we awoke to the serene mountain and forest view. My companion enjoyed the hot tub on our deck and later went to the Sierra Mar dining room for their buffet breakfast which had everything you could ask for. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the morning fog was just burning off and one of the guests spotted two whales in the cove below. Our hostess brought a set of binoculars so we could see them easily. We wandered past the infinity pool - all beautiful landscaped. This environmentally friendly property is a jewel. We could not have been happier and cannot wait to return.

Gorgeous! Henry Miller wrote, ‘The place itself is so overwhelmingly bigger, greater, than anyone could hope to make it that it engenders a humility and reverence not frequently met with in Americans. There being nothing to improve on in the surroundings, the tendency is to set about improving oneself.’
