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

I was skeptical of this place, thinking that using a shared bathroom would ruin this place. It was a minor inconvenience at worst, given everything else this hotel had to offer. The views of the whole resort are truly spectacular. Every point of the place offers a new view of the Pacific vistas (make sure you hang out at the... More

We stayed at one of the campsites (pitched our own tent) as we traveled up the Californian coast. It was a very nice place, and we really enjoyed the showers, pool, hot-tub, deck, and restaurant. Our campsite had a wonderful ocean view, but the ground was very course gravel and had a significant slope. All in all, it was the... More

Breathtakingly beautiful, unique, serene, and relaxing. The yurts are spotlessly clean, roomy, and have comfortable linens and beds. We had a two person yurt, which had a queen bed, a futon couch, sink, mirror, table/chairs. Very spacious. Each yurt has a view deck (ocean or mountain) with Adirondack chairs for relaxing. There are several great hiking trails nearby... Or just... More

We recently stayed two nights at Treebones and absolutely loved it! We all agreed we wish we had booked a longer stay and will definitely be returning. Most of the staff was friendly and helpful, especially front desk staff and the always-happy-and-singing Jonny. Our waitress Brenna and several different female front desk staff willingly recommended places for hiking, food, and... More

I visited Treebones Resort at the beginning of this year with my partner and our stay was absolutely incredible and unforgettable. I cannot rave about this place enough, it is exactly what Big Sur is about - friendly people and being close to and appreciating nature. Location: Treebones is tucked away off the highway with a great view from pretty... More

We were just staying at Treebones for one night which is definitely too short. This place is a great base to stay and start hiking tours at Big Sur! We stayed in Yurt 16, the most remote one, a really quiet place. The Yurt itself was really cozy with a really good bed and warm duvets. There's a small furnace... More

My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights in a yurt in early June. We found Treebones in the New York Times and were really looking forward to our stay here! I wish I had gotten the young man's name at check-in. We arrived just before the restaurant was closing due to complications and could not have received a... More

My husband and I traveled to Treebones as a stop during our 10 day California trip and we could not have been more impressed! We stayed in yurt 16 and were very comfortable. Yurt 15&16 are away from the yurt "village" and are a little more private. Obviously, they are further away from the lodge, pool, restaurant, etc, but this... More

We camped at Tree Bones over New Years in 2013. The views from the camp sites are spectacular!!! If you stay there during the fall you will see numerous whales swimming by when you sit at your camp. The main area is a circular building, shaped like a large yurt, that is warm and inviting. The views from the back... More
