the location is amazing! it's hard to beat anyplace set inside the redwood forest. our room was ok, the big perk was the electric fireplace and comfy bed, but aside from that everything else was meh. the shower sucked, but it's better than nothing, after a long days hike. the decor was a little lack luster...it looks like they were...

We go to Big Sur twice a year - have for decades. Fernwood restaurant is a MUST to hit once or twice each visit. It's just a fun place to hang out. If you're there during the day, check out the back patio - an entirely different experience than the funky little restaurant, and a treat all its own. The... More

We liked almost everything at Fernwood. For what it is, the price is right, the rooms are clean, the location is great. We had a fully equipped cabin for 4 people (two kids) - this is more lika a hose but not a camp. You can pack your staff on your way at Camel (Safeway) and enjoy quite place at... More

Driving the coastal highway south from San Jose, CA this was a perfect stop to rest from the road. The deck overlooking the trees on the back of the restaurant was the best way to enjoy this restaurant. It was very quiet and serene. I enjoyed my food and the atmosphere. Nice break after long hours on the curvy road.

After 2 days of hiking Big Sur we came back starving and this place was great for regaining strength and getting our energy back. I specifically remember a great BIG pizza!

We arrived at Fernwood late afternoon of day #2 of our tandem ride from SF to LA. Upon arriving at Fernwood, being 50+ and having ridden 80+ miles that day, I wasn't so sure booking the Adventure Tent at Ferwood was the right call. I'm happy to say, IT WAS THE RIGHT CALL!! Staying in the AT among the redwoods... More

We stopped off on our way to San Fransisco. Glad to say we won't be back. The tall bandana wearing waiter has a seriously bad attitude.
