We booked Lucia from the web the day before we arrived, heading north. There aren't many accommodation options in Big Sur, and it was hard to decide without seeing - but it's a big risk to just turn up and hope there's a vacancy. A good call - because even though this was Autumn, and a weekday, they did fill... More

On our first trip to California back in 2011, my then partner and I stopped at Lucia Lodge for lunch on our way to San Francisco. Struck by the stunning views of the Pacific, we wished we had booked into one of the cliff edge lodges for the night. Three years later, on our honeymoon, we did just that and... More

We wanted to stay in Big Sur but all the high end resorts were commanding prices of 4-5 times that of Lucia Lodge. We felt resigned to the fact that there was no option but to continue driving to Carmel .. Luckily we found Lucia Lodge. It's not a bargain but for the price, we had a great view of... More

The view from this place is absolutely breathtaking! You'll never be able to sleep in only because you won't be able to wait to get up to look at the scenery. Now, you don't get a very reliable internet service, nor do you get a fridge and at times any electricity at all. But, you are in the wilderness so... More

What an incredible delight. The cabins where roomy and comfortable. There is a short hike up a hillside where you can view the sunset. The view from the cabins is breathtaking! We ate at the restaurant for dinner and the food & service was outstanding. The included continental breakfast was a perfect start to the day.

I recommend Lucia Lodge. It's on a bluff overlooking the ocean. You should know that it's about 13 miles, 20 minutes from the "town" of Big Sur proper but the drive along the coast is what we go for. It's nice if you are traveling up from the south because you get there a little sooner and are closer on... More

Overlooking the cliffs and the Pacific Ocean, these cabins give a way more than only a paradisiac scenery: it gives you the chance of living in the middle of the Big Sur region. Imagine watching the sunset with a glass of wine with only the ocean noise surrounding. Beside, the cabin and restaurant kept an atmosphere of the 30’s.

We stayed in Cabin 7 for one night on a 10 night trip around California - this stay was a real highlight on our trip we loved the lodges. The cabins are full of character and have the most fantastic view. You find yourself not wanting to do anything else apart from sit outside and soak up the view. We... More

My wife and I recently stayed in Cabin #7 at the Lucia Lodge. The view was spectacular and the room was clean and comfortable. The property restaurant offered no carry out which we hoped to access in order to relax in our room and enjoy a romantic dinner with amazing views. However, this did not deter us and we bought...

I have to agree with jackie- we were not in one of the cabins but in a 200/night room. Everything was clean and tidy thankfully but beyond that, it was hopeless. We had one wine glass and NO hairdryer. I stayed in hotels for two weeks and never ran into this. The walls were so paper thin, that if I... More
