We stayed at Treebones for two nights & it'll be somewhere w'll never forget! We didn't really know what to expect, but it is a lovely place that is 'off the grid' - no signal & the internet is slow. It is so chilled & there is such a relaxing atmosphere. We felt super chilled after just being there for... More

We had a wonderfully relaxing stay at Tree bones and did want to leave! From our yurt balcony , we spent the day reading, watching whales in the distance (definitely take binoculars, if you can), sundowner beers while watching amazing sunsets and star gazing at night but bring layers for the evening ! The resort facilities were spotlessly clean and... More

LODGING - We stayed in mtn view yurt #3 and partial ocean view #6. I think I actually liked #3 better because it's closer to the bathroom and the parking lot and also maybe because #6 had the faint smell of bird poop (which I saw on the skylight). - The skylight can be opened. On one night, we were... More

My fiancé and I stayed at one of Treebones campsites for three nights. The experience was unparalleled to any other camping experience. Our campsite had completely unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean. The site was very private and had a picnic table and area to use our propane grill. However, we barely cooked while we were there, due to the... More

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
