Post Ranch Inn at Big Sur
Highway One
P.O. Box 219
Big Sur, California 93920

This 30 room suite is perched high on a ridge on the Big Sur Coast. In 1860, William Brainard Post was one of the first to stake a claim and homestead in the splendid wilderness of Big Sur. In time, W. B. Post ran a working ranch with thriving apple orchards and a successful livestock trade. Around him a new community sprung up comprised of other equally independent, hard-working and courageous individuals. In this vein, each of the thirty guest units is named for one of the original settlers in the Big Sur Area.
This is a perfect spot to unwind, soak up the vistas and enjoy gourmet dining.
