Post Ranch Inn
Set on a 1,200-foot cliff right over the roar and whip of the Pacific, the Post Ranch Inn’s 39 rooms epitomize luxe rusticity. All feature furniture and cabinetry made with local redwood, baginga, and mahogany; ocean-facing rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows for enjoying the spectacular sunsets, while rooms in "tree houses” fill in the afternoons with the sound of rustling live oak and bay laurel leaves. In spring, the 100-acre property is blanketed with golden-orange California poppies.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
