The late Bill Post’s great-grandparents homesteaded the ranch in the mid-1800s and today Post family history is proudly displayed throughout the hotel. Honoring connections with the past, the guest rooms are each named after Big Sur pioneers, members of the family and community, including many hardy, industrious women. Over the years Bill led nature walks around the property or met with guests at breakfast twice a week to share his unique perspective and long history with Post Ranch. These activities with Bill were always a favorite among inn visitors. His courtly presence and gentle demeanor, coupled with his personal history and knowledge of the land and his forebears, created an unforgettable guest experience.
Bill passed away in 2009 at age 89. His spirit and legacy live on in those who knew and loved him. His beloved wife Luci, always a presence at the ranch and now in her 90s, often still comes to the property. Continuing the Post family heritage with the ranch today, Bill’s and Luci’s grandson works at the inn.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH, INVOLVEMENT & COMMITMENTS
Post Ranch proudly participates in The Good Night Foundation, an organization that originated with Mike Freed, Post Ranch Inn’s creator and Passport Resorts’ Managing Director, and Jack Theimer, President of The Theimer Group. Founded in 2007, the non-profit organization builds on the concept that a guest's hotel night can contribute to doing good in the community and beyond. At Good Night Foundation partner hotels, a three dollar charitable donation is added to each guest's nightly charge. The foundation addresses global challenges by funding programs focused on improving health, education, poverty and the environment. In addition, at least 50% of The Good Night Foundation's proceeds remain in the community in which they were collected, supporting local causes selected by the hotel staff. In this way, guests know their contributions benefit each community they visit. Guests who do not wish to participate may opt out by contacting their hotel front desk.
To date, The Good Night Foundation has raised over $200,000 for local and global grantees. Post Ranch, the first hotel to participate, has contributed over $50,000 to two local organizations, the Big Sur Fire Brigade and the Big Sur Health Center. www.goodnightfoundation.org
