4 Guest Rooms - 3 Suites - Oceanfront Home

The Main Inn Building has three guest-rooms on the second floor, each with a private bath. They all have access to the amazing 7-person hot tub on top of the water tower with views of the ocean and hills. Also, there is a modest second floor sun deck. The first floor living room, dining area, library, wrap-around Porch and terrace are all open to guests, as is the Newport room, which can seat 50 people for meals. At one end of this room is an intimate seating area in front of a 20 foot stone walk-in fireplace, which you can actually sit in. Located on the lower level of the Main Inn is our recreation room. Guests can enjoy a 60" television screen, dartboard, game table and complimentary wireless printing. All of these communal rooms offer a variety of spaces to curl up with a book or have a quiet conversation.

The Redwood House has three suites, each with unique architecture. There are 24 redwood trees holding up the structure, starting from the conference room and The Fireside Spa in the lower level and rising up through the different rooms to the roof. All three suites have a living room, dining area, kitchen, fireplace, deck, outdoor grill, hot tub or outdoor soaking tub, views of the ocean, TV and Internet service.

Sea Drum is the owners’ ocean side vacation home designed by the same architects as the Newport Inn buildings. Many have said that Sea Drum’s ocean views are among the best on the coast. The house is a visual delight. Offshore, there are huge rock formations with blow holes and when they are active, they sound like drums, thus the name, Sea Drum.

Trip Advisor Reviews

  • "The Inn at Newport Ranch is a place my parents told me about. It was a "can't miss" in their words on our trip down the coast from Oregon. They were right; this place is a must stay. We had the most peaceful stay and met the nicest people while we were there. The food was excellent, the people were friendly, the views were to die for. I will be coming back."

    Parker C.
  • "We stayed over Christmas weekend and the property and service were amazing. The food was delicious and thoughtfully prepared. They accommodated our dietary restrictions and snacks and beverages were in plentiful supply. We stayed in the Captain's Quarters and the view of the coast every morning of the large picture window alone made the stay worth it. I liked staying in the main house since it was pretty chilly at the end of December, and it was nice to head down to breakfast while staying nice and toasty. Highly recommend the ATV ride around the property! We will definitely be staying here again very soon."

  • "The team at the Inn was fantastic. We truly loved our two night all-inclusive stay. It's the type of place where the intimacy, remote setting, and service leave you wanting to stay longer. The property and architecture are beautiful. The rooms well-appointed and the staff incredibly caring. We definitely will be back!"

    Ryan D.
  • "This is an amazing experience! The Inn is well built - it is uniquely designed with redwood trees. We stayed in the Redwood Grove and had THE best views from our own deck/hot tub and every room in the suite. Sunsets and star-gazing were unsurpassed - our weather was perfect. The chairs, beds, bedding, pillows, towels were all excellent quality. The property itself is incredible. The bluff walk, the ranch ATV or horseback riding make it easy to stay in one place and never want to leave. The staff were all lovely and knew how to provide excellent customer service. Wish we could have stayed longer and completely decompressed..."

  • "The Northern California Coast can be tricky in January, but we had beautiful weather which only added to the joy of staying at the Inn. Dramatic location, away from all hustle, thoughtful and over the top design, materials and staff. Be sure stay for the evening meal and take the ATV tour around this huge open space. Couldn't be better. We will return."

  • "This is the most incredible place we have ever been!! BREATH TAKING VIEWS, Beautiful Rooms Clean and homey. THE MOST AMAZING STAFF EVER, by the time we left they felt like family. The Food was off the charts totally delicious!!!! Can hardly wait to go back. My Sons wedding there was the most amazing wedding we have ever been at it was like something out of a movie WILL NEVER FORGET THIS TRIP!!! Want an experience you will never stop talking about this is the place!!!"

    Diane H.
  • "Spent 3 nights at the inn and didn't want to leave. The place is amazing. The views, the rooms, the food and the staff all exceeded my expectations! Every morning breakfast is served and wine and cheese at night. Everyone went out of their way to accommodate and made us feel like one of the family. You can take a ATV ride through the property, use the hot tub for your room or just relax and take in the ocean views! A little bit of heaven on earth!!"

  • "Everywhere you look you see something incredibly beautiful. The architecture was like nothing I have seen before. They use tree trunks as pillars too much to describe. Walking around the ranch- the seashore was stunning and the whales entertained. The dinner was beautiful and delicious. The staff was so kind and knowledgeable about the area. One told us of a meteor shower we watched from our deck- even more stunning with the un altered (no light pollution)night sky. I went with some girlfriends as we were celebrating a special birthday. We were going to make margaritas and forgot the limes. However, not a problem for the service oriented staff- they were going into town and picked us up some."
