We stayed in room B along Hwy 1 frontage. Knowing Big Sur to be pricey, we got a room for $149 for two nights in early December. "Resort" is a bit of a stretch but it was quaint. Pros: priced on the lower end for the area, location in the middle of everything, comfy beds, soft towels, attached general store... More

Rented cabin 30 on short notice, even though they have a 2 night minimum they let us have it for a single night. Cabin was quite modern, and was nestled amongst some huge redwoods. Cabin came with a queen bed plus a twin bunk, shower, fully equipped kitchen and dining / living area, everything was spotlessly clean. Walking out of... More

We stayed two nights in their motel in September in a Queen Room. The Big Sur is a delightful place, with stunning hikes and perceptibly different vibe to the rest of California. We loved the countryside and the feeling of being in the middle of nowhere. We paid $140 a night for our room. Which for the Big Sur I... More

One of my all time favorite locations to "get away". Located in the heart of Big Sur with multiple lodging options. Lovely little general store and Fernwood also offers a restaurant and a bar. I will definitely return again and again!

Campground clean. Coin operated showers very nice and not over priced. We were there Sunday thru Thursday. Not packed - but not empty. Still nice & quiet. Most sites are close to the Big Sur river. We woke up to the sound of the river and the turkeys that come out in the morning. No internet or phone connection at... More

We stopped at this site for a quick snack while driving the PCH to LA. When we arrived in Santa Clara, I realized that I had lost my wallet. Upon further review I was able to determine that it was at Fernwood that I had last seen my wallet. When I called back they had indeed found it and more... More

Two of my girlfriends and I drove Rt. 66 from St. Louis to Big Sur. After a lot of research, we decided to stay at Fernwood. We wanted to stay in the woods, not on the side of hwy 1 in a motel. I'm so happy with the decision. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in cabin... More

My husband and I stayed here for almost a week this past summer. We stayed with our vintage trailer down by the river. Although the sites are a little close together, we still found them spacious enough and quiet enough. The most noise we heard was from children playing. I have read reviews of people complaining of noise but I... More

"Resort" is a bit of a stretch - it's a combined motel, campground, convenience store and restaurant. But it's still a beautiful place at the northern end of Big Sur, complete with the unique hotel trappings of the area such as no TVs and "quiet time" between 10pm and 8am. It's in a great location, being near Bixby Bridge, Point... More

The Fernwood Resort is located off on the side of Highway 1, in the middle of Big Sur. It's a combo motel, camp ground, general store and tavern/restaurant. We were in a room vs cabin or camping. The beds were super soft and comfy to sleep in. The room, where very simple in design and furnishings were extremely neat and... More
