I won't go into detail on the grounds, which are gorgeous, the eco approach, which is noble, the food, which is delightful (and not surprisingly on the pricey side), or the staff, who are very special, each and every one of them. The other reviews cover all that. We stayed in the nest. It was the highlight of a week-long... More

I have never camped or "glamped" before, but our experience at Treebones was fantastic! We stayed in yurt 7 and had a fabulous view of the ocean. The yurt was spacious with 2 beds and a sink. The fireplace kept the room warm at night. We had a deck to sit on and gaze at the ocean with a glass... More

I would like to start by saying that I loved it here. The yurts were magical, cosy and spacious. The view was spectacular. We clearly saw a number of whales on our first day. I also had a lot of respect for what they were trying to do in terms of the environment - recycling food, generating their own electricity... More

We had 2 yurts here for a couple of nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect, looking out over the sea, in perfect tranquility. We didn't manage to get a yurt with an ocean view but it really didn't matter as there are so many places on the site where you can just sit and... More

We loved treebones. We drove to it from the South and the wilderness of the landscape is impressive. The yurts are spacious and beautiful, the camp grounds are magical, and it feels the right place to stay in Big Sur. We even saw some deers just by the entrance and we could hear the birds at early morning. The staff... More

I loved most things about this special place in the Big Sur. It's a really cool, totally doing the right thing kind of place. The yurts are lovely and comfortable. Delicious water in the tap. Comfy beds. Stunning views. So quiet during the day. The food was good. The lovely waitress couldn't have been more genuine. The place is clearly... More

We booked here as a stop over whilst travelling from LA to San Francisco. The minimum stop is 2 nights which isn't a problem as there's plenty to explore for a day around the Big Sur. Our party consisted 2 adults and a teenager. We booked in and were allocated Yurt no.3. The Yurt was large - it had 2... More

No amount of words would describe our 2 day experience at Treebones. We just got back to the South Bay (San Jose, CA), after spending an awesome weekend at Treebones Resort. We rented a Yurt overlooking the pacific ocean and had the best restful, relaxing wonderful weekend. The sushi restaurant and dining amenities at the lodge were awesome and everyone... More

There really are no words that do justice to how fabulous Treebones is! My husband is an outdoorsy guy, and my idea of roughing it is the Holiday Inn; "glamping" at Treebones was the perfect compromise. We unfortunately could only stay one night, so we didn't get to experience everything at the resort and in the area, but now we... More
