Stayed in a large Yurt with my family, it was better than we had hoped. Beds were very comfortable (best sleep we had on the whole trip). Area is breathtaking, plenty of hiking and beach-ing.. We like to stay active, so 2-3 days was perfect, after that you'd be looking for things to do, unless you are good with just... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the two campsites Treebones has available as the state campgrounds on the Big Sur coast during summer book very far in advance. We encountered some positives and some negatives. I'll start with the positives: 1. Treebones is wonderfully managed with a very friendly and helpful staff. That always goes a long way.... More

We had 2 nights here in yurt #3 which was the only one available at time of booking. It was a little cosy bed-wise for 2 adults and 2 teenagers but that added to the experience!!! Everything was clean and well looked after. The food in the restaurant was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful and it was the perfect... More

We stayed in a yurt overlooking the ocean. Because of time constraints we could only stay one night. I would love to have stayed longer. Was a little worried at first about bathroom not in yurt but found it not an issue. So relaxing. The staff was excellent and dinner in restaurant wonderful.

We stayed in yurt 7 for two nights with our 8yo son. We all loved the experience staying in the yurt. It was really spacious and super cozy in the evening. We didn't have lunch/dinner at Treebones as the menu isn't really aimed at kids. We knew this in advance though and made sure our itinerary meant we ate elsewhere.... More

This was our first experience of staying in a yurt. We appreciated the novelty, spaciousness and comfort, as well as the aesthetics of the internal wooden frame. We stayed in Yurt #3 which was the only option when we booked relatively late. Others have identified this as the worst of the yurts. We have no way of making comparisons but... More

Treebones Resort is totally worth the drive! We were lucky enough to stay in the Treehouse for the night that we were there! It was such a unique room. The we could see so many stars through the skylight and hear the sea lions on the coast calling to each other! Event hough the evening was quite chilly, between the... More

Staying in a yurt is a fun experience. And given that its not a standard hotel room, you should expect some quirks. For example, we stayed in the family yurt with 2 teens. One of the beds had a 'curtain' that could be drawn around it for privacy, but the curtain did not close completely leaving a 5' wide gap,... More

We were just back from Treebones! Awesome experience; romantic and peaceful getaway. Magnificent ocean and mountain views. We stayed at an ocean view tent. Staff was great. Facilities were clean. Food was delicious; we had the seafood pasta last Friday. I had sushi Saturday; it was very good. I had the Hanalei. Thanks Treebones for the wonderful experience. We will... More

As noted in other reviews, Treebones is a quirky and beautiful place to land for peace and rejuvenation amid the majesty of the northern California coast. Though there are quite a few yurts, campsites and unique lodging places (human nest, anyone?) the place never felt less than serene, and the views over the Pacific were gorgeous (especially at sunset).
