The Inn at Newport Ranch
If you like The Pitcher Inn you should feel right at home at the Inn at Newport Ranch on the beautiful Mendocino Coast of northern California, just a 3-½ hour drive north of San Francisco. Both inns were designed by our Vermont friends David Sellers and Jim Sanford. Dave was voted one of the 100 best architects in the world some years ago by Architectural Digest. So, as you might expect, each inn is special and unique in its own way.
The Inn at Newport Ranch has almost two miles of frontage on the Pacific Ocean and is part of a 2,000-acre cattle ranch. There are 20 miles of trails along the coast and through the redwood forest to explore by horseback, on foot or with a guide on a five passenger UTV. There are carefully sited picnic tables scattered throughout the property to capture the breathtaking panoramic views. It’s easy to just unwind and be restored by the natural beauty of the place. www.theinnatnewportranch.com
