Our Story

Living History

Our story begins differently than most. Before The Inn at Newport Ranch, there was Newport — a small town that sprouted around a logging community in 1865. When the industry left town two decades later, its inhabitants went with it. Farmers soon took their place, constructing numerous buildings on the abandoned land. One of those was a two-story house; today, some 100-plus years later, the bones of the old farm house form the core of our newly-constructed Inn.

Architecture

North Coast Style

How do you make a memorable setting? With memorable materials. Old-growth redwoods, one-ton stones, and a water tower blend beautifully, making our oceanside Fort Bragg inn as stunning as it is secluded.

Committing to Sustainability

We grow most of our own produce, source our fish and meat from local providers, and purchase wines from local vintners. In Northern California, there’s no better way to shop; we think you’ll agree.
