There are fantastic ridges in Big Sur overlooking the Pacific. The Post family chose this ridge for their ranch to homestead in the 1860's. Post descendants were involved in creating a very small inn about 1992, and suitably named it the Post Ranch Inn.
Of the three pools at the Inn, two are very well heated infinity pools overlooking the ocean below. You can soak and watch California Condors soaring on the updrafts. Food and drink service is available for Inn guests at the pools but watch out for deer peeking back over the edge at your lunch.
