Aspiration worthy experience

Beautifully sited and architecturally significant, Post Ranch is an exquisite melding of rugged nature and raw materials set in concert with a wonderfully sophisticated touch. The attention to detail is a pleasure. The rooms, pools, dining area and spa all embrace magnificent views.This is a destination worthy retreat.

Amazing hotel, but an important note about the Tree House rooms

San Francisco, California

This has to be one of the best resorts in America on a sunny day. The views over the Pacific are superb, especially from one of the two hot tubs. The hiking in the area is some of the best in California. And the restaurant is top notch. The nightly rate is crazy expensive, but for a special occasion, it's worth it. All that said, there is one important catch: we stayed in a "Tree House" room and learned the hard way that there is a massive window over the bed without curtains which makes it impossible to sleep as soon as the sun comes up. For all the money spent on this resort, it's surprising to me that they don't have a solution for his. I don't know if the more expensive room categories have this same issues, but it's worth asking when you make your reservation.
