Check-In time is normally between 3-7PM If you expect you may be arriving later than 7PM, please let us know so arrangements can be made. Having the full amount of time between check-outs and check-ins is the only way we can ensure the high quality of cleanliness and service standard that we uphold. We ask that guests be checked out of their room by 11AM on the day of departure. We dislike charging late fees, but please note that for every half hour you stay in your room or suite past 11AM, we will add a $25 to your stay. It may be possible for us to arrange early check-ins and late check-outs upon request.
Breakfast is complimentary for each guest staying at the Inn. Lunches can be added for $20 per person and can be enjoyed in one of our dining rooms or picked up picnic style to be enjoyed along the cliffs or trails. Fireside Happy Hour is offered each evening at the Inn; hors d'oeuvres are complimentary as well as your first glass of wine, beer or cocktail. Additional drinks can be purchased for $12 each (with the exception of some top-shelf liquors) and sparkling and still wines can be purchased by the bottle. You are welcome to bring your own bottle of wine to our dinner table for a $15 corkage. We offer a 3-course dinner service is offered to our guests each evening and can be added for $65 per person.

Groups planning events and weddings must contact us directly before booking any rooms, and depending on your group size and needs, you may be required to take over the entire Inn. We do this to protect the expectation of the both the group, and for other guests who would otherwise be on the property at that time. We are a small property, not a large hotel, and want your event to be as special as is hoped.
Inn rooms are configured for one and two adults only, with the exception of our two-bedroom suite and full house rentals. Guests are expected to adhere to room occupancies set on our website. If you have questions about sleeping arrangements or adding extra guests to a room, please call us directly, so we can help ensure your stay will be as comfortable as possible and meet the needs of your group. Additional guests can sometimes be admitted upon request for an additional $45 per day, which covers breakfast and happy hour services. We will enforce room occupancy maximums; unannounced additional guests in rooms or suites may result in the cancellation of your reservation.
Please ask permission to invite outside guests onto the property during your stay or join you for dinner. All non-guests of the Inn will be expected to depart by 9PM.
Should a guest lose their key during their stay or fail to return their key upon check-out, a charge of $50 will be added to the invoice.
We strive to maintain an "adults only" atmosphere at the Inn and create an environment where our guests can relax and unwind in the quiet beauty of our property. We do not allow children under the age of 14 to stay on the property, with the exception of private, buy-out events. If you arrive with children for a stay at the Inn unannounced, we may ask you to find somewhere else to stay if we feel your children will affect the enjoyment of our other guests. This will be considered a cancellation and you will be charged the full amount of your reservation.
Because the Inn at Newport Ranch is a working cattle ranch, we ask that you not bring your pets / emotional support animals with you for your stay as it is not a safe environment for them. If you arrive with pets, you will need to find somewhere for them to stay off property, or cancel your reservation, in which case you will be charged the full cost of your reservation. Service animals that are individually trained for specific work or tasks to help a person with their disability are welcomed; dogs whose sole function is to provide emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.
No smoking is allowed in any of the Inn's rooms or interior spaces. Smoking is allowed in specified areas out of doors. If we find you have smoked in your room or suite during your stay, a cleaning fee of $500 will be added to your invoice to cover the cost of cleaning.
You will be expected to pay for any and all damages incurred as a result of you or any guests in your party, including excess damage to the grounds, rental equipment or gardens as well as loss of lodging revenue as a direct result of the actions of your guests.
