Shared a cabin with a group of friends. This is a great location to stay right in the middle of the big sur drive with its amazing views and great beaches. Cabin was nice and relaxing and had a open fire for the evening when it good a little chilly. We enjoyed a walk up to the summit of the... More

The room was unique. We had a king bed, double and twin. The double was in its own room. There was no heat in the double room. The fire place was the best touch. The room was very clean. We loved waking up with the turkey gobbling outside. The best jewel is the Roadhouse restaurant down the street. ... The... More

We rented one of the cottages and really enjoyed our stay. The fireplace is great (although something about the design of it causes a decent amount of smoke to come into the room), and we loved being able to take hikes right from the property. The meals were pricey, but we found that most meals in Big Sur were expensive... More

We are a family of five. We arrived at night. We booked a room that fit us all comfortably.Our room was a sort of quasi-cabin connected to a couple of similar units. I can't really compare it to anything. Definitely on the rustic side of things. The reason we chose to stay there was totally validated the next morning. We... More

We stayed here for a night on our drive down from SF to LA on the PCH. Typical lodge that also has to be a great starting point for hikes! A little overpriced, but that seems common in this area. We paid for a room including a fireplace, unfortunately the wood provided was moist an hard to light on fire.... More

We only stayed for a quick night, and had room 33. I think the lodge has some age on it, but our room was very fresh and up to date. It was huge! I think it was the biggest room we have ever had. It is Big Sur afterall! Anyway, there is not much to tell in a short night,... More

We had driven up from LA and were in dire need of a place to stay, so when we first arrived, we thought we had found nirvana, but alas, a cabin with a fireplace, sounded great at the front desk, in actual fact the room was dated, charmless, with a sub par bathroom. Reminded me of a cheap motel but... More

So I reserved a king bed cabin with a fireplace room and fell in love with it as soon as I arrived. The room was very inviting and cozy. There was a desk with a chair, two small living room chairs and they provided wood for the fireplace (which i didn't use because it wasn't that cold). The bathroom was... More
