The Inn at Newport Ranch Opening on Mendocino Coast

August 12, 2015 -

In late August 2015, on the Mendocino Coast of Northern California, a breathtaking oceanfront getaway – The Inn at Newport Ranch – will open to the public.

Located three and a half hours north of San Francisco and twenty miles north of the historic town of Mendocino, the newly constructed Inn at Newport Ranch is part of a 2,000 acre coastal cattle ranch on the site of the former town of Newport and its lumber chute. With more than a mile of oceanfront, three miles of ridge tops, panoramic coastal views and 20 miles of world class hiking and riding trails through redwoods and along the coast, the ranch is a unique private domain for those enjoying the North Coast's many recreational opportunities and delights, and is an ideal destination for vacations, small conferences, retreats, family reunions, weddings, and special events.*

“From a young age, open space and beautiful landscapes resonated with me,” states Will Jackson, founder of the Inn at Newport Ranch. “This ranch has been in our family since 1986, and the new Inn is the culmination of our dream to share the beauty and adventure of this magical land with others.”

The Inn was designed by renowned architects Dave Sellers and Jim Sanford of Warren, Vermont. The work of both architects focuses on designing and building in harmony with nature, with a special emphasis on custom craftsmanship. The structures have a number of unique architectural features, including a 20 foot wide walk-in stone fireplace, a building supported by 24 individual redwood trees, from base to cathedral-like ceiling, and a hot tub on top of a water tower that presents commanding views of the surrounding landscape. The hallway in the Main Inn is paneled with redwood boards up to five feet wide, and the living room flooring is 30-inch old growth redwood planks. Some of these boards were milled on the ranch from logs left behind by the old loggers. The use of these natural and local materials honors the bounty of the area, and helps to connect our guests to the landscape.

A stay at the Inn at Newport Ranch includes a made-to-order breakfast, evening fireside appetizers and libations, access to nearly all of our 2000 acres of majestic coastline and rugged forest, and on-site concierge services.

The three guest rooms in the Main Inn and three suites in the Redwood House are furnished to provide the ultimate in comfort, and can accommodate up to 14 guests. The rooms are set with various themes and appointments. All rooms have luxury bath amenities, robes, a hair dryer & a docking station with a radio.
In the Redwood House, each suite has an LCD flat screen TV, a DVD player, a private hot tub and an outdoor terrace or deck. Each suite also has a small kitchen and an outdoor grill.
The Main Inn guest rooms are small and more intimate. The access to the main living space & guest kitchen are available to all guests, as is the 6-person rooftop hot tub and sauna.

The property incorporates many unique architectural elements:

• Headboards from single burls and redwood slabs
• A stained glass entry door depicting a local scene
• Wood floors from antique stadium seats and old beams
• Twenty foot long single stone steps and pavers
• A dining table for 10 people from a single redwood slab
• A 32 foot banquet table made from a single redwood slab
• A hand carving of the Newport Lumber Chute
• 7 one-ton stone columns set in a 2 acre arc showing the Equinox, Winter solstice and Summer solstice
• A wrap around porch with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean on the west & the ranch land and coastal hills on the east side

In each building, there is a recreation room with a 60-inch flat screen TV, and computer access is available in Main Inn recreation room. The entire property has wireless Internet for guest use, and telephone service for guest use is available in the Main Inn (calls within the USA are complimentary).

In addition, the owner's ocean front vacation home – Sea Drum – is available for rentals and can accommodate up to 10 overnight guests. Sea Drum is adjacent to the Main Inn.

During their stay, guests will be offered an array of dining options. Daily menus are posted for our guests' consideration, listing the day's offerings. A complimentary made-to-order breakfast as well as evening fireside appetizers & libations are offered daily for all guests, and preordered lunch and dinner service are available for an extra charge.

The culinary culture at the Inn at Newport Ranch has been deemed “comfort ranch food.” The Inn sources and serves as many local ingredients and libations as possible, serves only the finest local meats and seafood, and grows some of its own vegetables, herbs, greens and flowers.

Barbecue and picnic sites such as Council Bluff are scattered throughout the property, if guests would like to enjoy a meal al fresco – next to the ocean, by a stream or on a magical hilltop with a 50 mile panoramic view.

There is also an on-site spa offering services such as massages, facials and more, to open later this year.

The Inn at Newport Ranch offers horseback riding (through its partner, Richochet Ranch), as well as hiking trails, whale watching, and guided ATV adventure safaris along the dramatic coast and ridgetops and through the redwood forests.

“Come stay with us and be a modern-day pioneer,” continues Jackson.

* Private events at the ranch can accommodate up to 99 people.
