This brand new destination retreat offers luxury lodging, fine dining and soft adventure on 2,000 acres of dramatic Pacific Coastline and forested foothills and ridgetops. The surrounding scenery is breathtakingly beautiful. Located three and a half hours north of San Francisco and twenty miles north of the historic town of Mendocino, the newly constructed Inn at Newport Ranch is part of a 2,000 acre coastal cattle ranch on the site of the former town of Newport and its lumber chute.
The Inn was designed by renowned architects Dave Sellers and Jim Sanford of Warren, Vermont. The work of both architects focuses on designing and building in harmony with nature, with a special emphasis on custom craftsmanship. The structures have a number of unique architectural features, including a 20 foot wide walk-in stone fireplace, a building supported by 24 individual redwood trees, from base to cathedral-like ceiling, and a hot tub on top of a water tower that presents commanding views of the surrounding landscape. The hallway in the Main Inn is paneled with redwood boards up to five feet wide, and the living room flooring is 30-inch old growth redwood planks.
The three guest rooms in the Main Inn and three suites in the Redwood House are furnished to provide the ultimate in comfort, and can accommodate up to 14 guests. The rooms are set with various themes and appointments. All rooms have luxury bath amenities, robes, a hair dryer & a docking station with a radio.
In the Redwood House, each suite has an LCD flat screen TV, a DVD player, a private hot tub and an outdoor terrace or deck. Each suite also has a small kitchen and an outdoor grill.
In each building, there is a recreation room with a 60-inch flat screen TV, and computer access is available in Main Inn recreation room. The entire property has wireless Internet for guest use, and telephone service for guest use is available in the Main Inn (calls within the USA are complimentary).
In addition, the owner’s ocean front vacation home – Sea Drum – is available for rentals and can accommodate up to 10 overnight guests. Sea Drum is adjacent to the Main Inn.
During their stay, guests will be offered an array of dining options. Daily menus are posted for our guests’ consideration, listing the day’s offerings. A complimentary made-to-order breakfast as well as evening fireside appetizers & libations are offered daily for all guests, and preordered lunch and dinner service are available for an extra charge.
Barbecue and picnic sites such as Council Bluff are scattered throughout the property, if guests would like to enjoy a meal al fresco – next to the ocean, by a stream or on a magical hilltop with a 50 mile panoramic view.
