I cannot put into words how wonderful my stay was here. I visited last summer and cannot wait to return this summer. My boyfriend and I stayed at campsite #3, which made for an affordable vacation with a breathtaking view. The staff here is so friendly! They drove us and all of our camping gear to our site in their... More

Such an amazing location, staffed be equally amazing people. The peace and quiet is heavenly, the surrounding landscape awe-inspiring and Treebones was a perfect way to enjoy it - yurts are perfect, the other facilities well-maintained and clean, and probably some of the most welcoming people we have met while on holiday. You guys rock, please continue making a success... More

Booked this from London not knowing what to expect on our trip down HW1. We were not disappointed. Yurt living simply brilliant experience. Restaurant fantastic. Location a microcosm of paradise complete with hot tub, pool and amazing views. Friendly beyond expectation. A must for any traveller down the Pacific Coast route.

I have been wanting to stay here ever since I read about it in a Sunset magazine, many years ago. It lived up to those years of anticipation. My husband and I stayed for two nights during our anniversary road trip. Our yurt was perfect; spectacular ocean views surrounded by beautiful trees. The bed was very comfortable, we slept as...

Wonderful location, try and arrive before it gets dark so you can watch the sunset from the deck. The yurts are fab, the restaurant is really good, even the shop is a cut above. I took a lady's family photo for her and she commented on the fact we were both English and there were lots of English there, I... More

Spent Christmas at Treebones and what a magical spot in beautiful Big Sur. Our yurt was ocean view and so incredibly comfortable. The actual yurt is very clean, spacious and 100 percent unique. Breakfast buffet was excellent each morning and our Christmas evening dinner was also very good. We crawled into the Human Nest and watched the whales surface; the... More

Drove the California coast line last September and stopped here along the way. The views are absolutely incredible. Watching a sunset from Treebones was amazing. The yurts are pretty large (but couples take note: the walls are very thin ;-) ). People scurry to the best viewing spots about an hour before sunset. The morning breakfast was pretty good too....

What a fantastic place. Gorgeous yurt, very clean with a lovely big bed and fab patchwork quilt. I loved the skylight so you could lie in bed and look at the stars. We had such a memorable trip and I recommend this place to any friends going along the California coast

I should start by saying that we just got engaged at Treebones so this review is a little biased ;) but I should say that we are 1000% glad we stayed there and I am very glad that I chose it as my engagement spot! Our yurt was excellent - roomy, clean, fireplace, warm blanket, and a cozy atmosphere. The... More

We are just back from two glorious nights at Treebones Resort. We watched the whales spouting and the dolphins leaping as we sipped coffee outdoors this morning. Yesterday we did a 10 mile hike (Vicente Flat Trail) that traversed the coast for about 3 miles before cutting east into a redwood canyon and stream. The hot tub and nap in... More
