Ragged Point Inn and Resort History

In the 1950's, Wiley Ramey and his wife, Mildred, were entranced by Ragged Point's rugged natural beauty while visiting the Central Coast. This magical area, which was once part of the huge Hearst Ranch, immediately found a place in their hearts. Finally, in 1961, they persuaded carnival owner, Monte Young, to sell them his rustic outpost, which consisted of two gas pumps, a couple of travel trailers, and a snack shack that sported a neon "EAT" sign.

Since that time, the Point has been a labor of love for three generations of the Ramey family, as they've gradually added every amenity to make Ragged Point the premier resort on the south Big Sur coast and the perfect spot for your next getaway.
