Simply put, we know of no finer place in the U.S. to propose, honeymoon, or slip away with your sweetheart than Post Ranch Inn. It's a bold statement, to be sure, but one we'd bet the house on. The sublime experience here is unmatched and worth every single penny. It delivers the spectacularly rugged Big Sur coastline from an elegant and architecturally stunning perch—right off scenic Highway 1 between San Luis Obispo and Monterey, and 30 miles south of Carmel, California.

Romance Expert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Book a dinner for two at Sierra Mar, the ranch's sublimely romantic restaurant that's well worth the splurge. The wine cellar has more than 13,000 bottles.
  • Guided nature hikes, morning yoga, and stargazing are among the inn's complimentary activities a couple can enjoy together.
"Small, serene, seductive." That's how management defines this acclaimed inn high on the cliffs of Big Sur. It's in a setting and class all its own. Post Ranch Inn is a place where romance thrives, and it's impossible to give credit for that to just one element. It's the magnificent setting, the architecture in harmony with nature, the fact that every room has a fireplace, the cliff-top "meditation pool," the dining, the service. For the ultimate intimate wedding ceremony, book the Elopement Package and exchange vows on the very private terrace of your guest room.
