My niece and I stayed in cabin #6, which was down by the creek amongst the redwoods, with no big views over the ocean. We decided on the creek rather than the hillside because we figured we'd have lots of opportunity to stop and admire the views while driving the coastal road. The nightly cost, including taxes, was a shade under $200.
The one-room cabin was comfortable, clean and cosy. We particularly enjoyed the quiet privacy of the porch facing the creek, although I don't think all the cabins were occupied while we were there and perhaps it would have been noisier if it had been peak occupancy. Particularly impressive were the helpfulness, friendliness and courtesy of the general store staff. We didn't eat at the restaurant, but instead had breakfast on our cabin porch.
Overall, a great experience. Definitely rustic compared to other overnight options in Big Sur, but great value for the area. Would certainly go back.
