With a superb location on a cliff looking over the Pacific Ocean, we tend to forget civilization in this peaceful and cozy place (as well as the price of accommodation). The sunset overlooking the sea seated in front of the cabins is a must. On my second visit to California I tried to book in advance but Lucia Lodge was... More

We've stayed several times at Lucia Lodge and will continue to do so while driving slowly along Hwy 1. Love the cliff-side rooms which capture 1930's California. Rustic, and appropriately so, rooms are comfortable. Romantic and peaceful, we linger each morning, leaning on the fence, before reluctantly moseying along.

My husband and I stayed at Lucia Lodge for one night on our honeymoon and it was everything we'd hoped it be. We stayed in Cabin 9 close to the edge of the cliff. Some people have remarked that it needs to be updated, but I don't get it - yes, it's old fashioned, but that's really its charm. Everything... More

Location! Loved it! Kind of funky place - our cabin tilted at a five degree angle - but cute, clean and cozy, and did I mention the Location? Right on the edge of a south facing cliff overlooking the fabulous Big Sur coastline. I've been wanting to stay there since I first saw it. Truly a world class view! Worth... More

My wife and I recently drove the Coastal Highway from L.A. to Crescent City. The Lucia Lodge was our first night. The lodge has three sets of cabins. Be sure to select the ocean view. The mountain view may disappoint some. The original lodge cabins were build in the 1930's before the Pacific Highway was built, so do not expect... More

Just south of Big Sur State Park, perched on the cliffs overlooking the Pacific right on Hwy 1 with a spectacular view of the ocean. We stayed in cabin 10 which was great. Its like stepping back in time since it doesn't seem like much has changed since it was built in the 30's: no TV and nothing much to... More

We were driving down the PCH in early April and happened to stop at the Lucia Lodge . We were a little pressed for time and there was a landslide just down the road . I was a little frustrated because we couldn't continue down the road .So we had a nice lunch at the lodge sitting out on the... More

Stayed at Lucia in mid January, not expecting much however, the weather was spectacular in the mid 60's and beautiful clear days for touring the Pacific Coast from Carmel to San Clemente. Lucia Lodge has a spectacular location with beutiful views of the Coastline. Accomodations define the word rustic but the very quiet location well off the Highway leaves only... More

We were lucky to get cabin 10, the one on the end with a fireplace, due to an earlier cancellation. At $250 (including continental breakfast) it was a bit pricey from my perspective, but then again this is a completely unique location and property. The cabins were built in 1937 and haven't had much done to them since other than... More
