My sister and I stayed in Yurt #9 for two nights in mid-October. From check-in to check-out, every aspect of our stay was delightful. The yurt was clean, well-appointed, and comfortable, with a view that couldn't be beat. We ate in the restaurant both nights and enjoyed both meals immensely. The fig and goat cheese flat bread was a particular... More

We stayed here two nites this week which was a big mistake. You would think that a place that is in the middle of nowhere would provide a more welcoming home base with comfy couches to hang out and congregate. There is 1 couch and bland staff who really did not point us in any helpful direction for hikes or... More

Should be a 5 star review except for one major problem. Up front, please understand that this place is amazing. The staff was helpful and friendly and the view is second to none. The food, while narrow in focus in that it is geared toward the higher-end dining experience, is well-executed. The problem was with our stay in Yurt 2... More

We stayed in a Yurt at treebones for 2 nights of our honeymoon as we traveled down the Pacific Coast Highway. We had such an amazing time. The Yurts are so clean and spacious, the views are incredible, and the staff was so friendly. We ate at the restaurant both nights and sat outside and watched the sun set into... More

My husband and I decided to spent two nights in the Human Nest at Treebones on our honeymoon. The location is a little bit outside of the main part of Big Sur and there is not much around there. This is problematic if you don't want to spend a FORTUNE on the restaurant, which I hear is not all that... More

We are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. It truly saddens us that any member of our staff may have come across as unfriendly, because although we do need to uphold certain policies- everyone here cares very much about the guest’s experience. It’s true that the Nest or Campsites may not be the right option for... More

The resort was great. Yurt 16 is by far the most secluded, romantic with unobstructed amazing views. Sushi was delicious & the dining room smelled amazing for dinner each night. The bed was super comfortable & quiet, although you can hear our seal friends throughout the night so light sleepers may not enjoy 16 as much as we did. Big... More

We love Treebones! It was our second trip and wont be our last. Treebones is a resort campground. The accommodations are fabulous, cozy beds with ample quilts, a fireplace, hardwood floors. Dinner at the sushi bar was amazing. The sushi chef from PA creates incredible combinations and the small bar makes the experience personal. So you have to walk to... More

Stayed two nights in yurt #8, really loved it - absolutely stunning view. Watching the sunset both nights was amazing. Treebones was straight off highway 1, easy to find. The yurt was spacious and full of character. Shared bathroom was nearby and nice and clean, never busy. Pool was small but good to have a cool down in when too... More

More than anywhere else we were scheduled to stay during our 15 days in California, I was looking forward to this place. And in some respects it met our expectations. The view {we were in #9} was really nice. The bed and yurt itself were comfortable. We were able to get some fresh air in the yurt- seems some places... More

We stayed in some great hotels during our 3 week holiday in California but Treebones was a special experience. One can see and feel that the place has a very family-like atmosphere and every staff member is very involved in what they do. We stayed in Yurt no. 16 which was absolutely wonderful! It has a full ocean view and... More
