Luxury in Love
as seen on my blog here
If you are looking for a getaway where you can truly escape from the hustle and noise of the city; where your focus is on your significant other and not at a computer screen, we welcome you to Sea Ranch Lodge. Nestled along the bluffs of the northern Sonoma Coast, our resort provides the intimate setting for a couple’s total relaxation. Our Luxury in Love package is just what you both need to rekindle the romance and tantalize the senses. 
This offer includes the following:
  • Find your romantic hideaway in our Pacific Spa Patio Room, which features a cozy fireplace, King-size bed, and – best of all – an outdoor hot tub! Push back the sliding barn window to frame your own private view of the Pacific Coast and wildflower meadows. Tucked away at the end of the Lodge, your two-night stay here will be a retreat you won’t soon forget. 
  • Toast to your love with a bottle of sparkling wine and savor chocolate-covered strawberries, which will be in your room upon arrival. 
  • Dinner for two in the award-winning Black Point Grill, complete with a bottle of a featured local wine 
  • Hour-long massages for the couple in our side-by-side spa rooms 
  • Full made-to-order breakfast 
  • Private two-hour guided walking tour of the coastal areas in the vicinity of Sea Ranch Lodge by Margaret of Unbeaten Path Tours. This is a remarkable way to reconnect with your natural surroundings, smell the salty air, bask in the ocean climate, and delight in the flora and fauna along the hike. 
  • Sip the juice of extraordinary grapes at the nearby Fort Ross Winery. Take a tour of the Fort Ross vineyards and visit the tasting room, with a complimentary wine tasting included. We are sure you won’t be able to pass up taking back a bottle or two! 
  • For your second night, we will save two seats for you to have dinner in the Black Point Grill, or if you want something completely private, order a special room service dinner from an exclusive menu created just for your enjoyment. 
  • We will be sad to see you go, but as a farewell, please join us for a full made-to-order breakfast in the Black Point Grill and take in another view of the Pacific Ocean…perhaps you will even stop by the Front Desk before you depart and schedule your next visit to Sea Ranch Lodge!
