5 STAR plus...where Zen meets Pacific Ocean (US side)!

Mirror Lake, New Hampshire

My second visit to the Post Ranch Inn, and I have to say, this place has a distinctly different vibe than almost any other place on's where reality meets the spiritual world! The natural splendor is spectacular! If sitting up high on a cliff overlooking the Pacific doesn't do it for you, perhaps the abundant wildlife...including soaring birds of pray will! I've always departed this property feeling more centered and grounded.

Dated room; not worth the price

Menlo Park, California

We splurged for a weekend getaway to Post Ranch Inn for my birthday. Unfortunately, our ocean front room didn't meet our expectations for luxury. The toilet area was not private: separated from the room by a wall that was open at the top near the ceiling. The tiled shower/bathtub was difficult to access over a thick, low wall. The king bed was extra tall making that first step out of bed a doozy. The view was fantastic but the basic amenities of the room were substandard. I followed up via email to concierge and to guest services within days of our checkout but I never got any reply or acknowledgement. Needless to say, I would recommend Ventana over Post Ranch.
