This was a great find. The room was clean, comfortable and cosy. The wifi was fine. The restaurant was fantastic. Great food and wine, and excellent, friendly service. The view of the ocean from our table was wonderful. Lovely breakfast which was included. The setting of the lodge is awesome. I would definitely stay there again.

We stopped here for lunch on our way down the coast. The fish and chips were delicious as was the salad that I ordered. The portions were very ample. Prices are high just like everywhere else in the area but it was a better value. The outside view here was incredible and better than Nepenthe in my opinion. We are... More

Cozy apartment, with an elegant touch of simplicity. Highlight to the wonderful view of the ocean. Awesome experience watching the wales swimming towards the north. A unique experience I would happily repeat. Unforgetable.

its ok, the rooms are small and attached to one another and the walls are paper thin. There is really not much to do in Lucia but the view in front of the room is nice. Would I go again no, its too much money for what you get and you are not really in the midst of Big Sur

A little expensive but you are paying for great service and an amazing view. Our appetizers were delicious. My steak was not the best cut of meat but everything was fresh. The ambience is fantastic. They happily accommodated my picky kids too.

Our room was modern and clean but that is to be expected for nearly $300 a night. We could hear the people next door sing to their baby and of course when he woke up at 4am so did we!! The walls were paper thin . There is noTV, no fridge though free tea and coffee up to 9pm when... More

Rustic setting. Great place to watch fog / mist come and go. When clear the views are awesome. Provide chairs outside and also have a trail to go and watch sunset. We used this as our Big Sur stop. Wildfires have many parks closed but the views remain.

SO BEAUTIFUL! I stayed here on my honeymoon and it is absolutely gorgeous. There are only 10 cabin, so there are not tons of people around. My husband and I climbed up the hill behind the cabins and watched the waves crash into the mountains as the sun set. The restaurant was delicious and the setting was so romantic. It... More

We stayed here only one night, rooms are small, basic but clean. Queen beds only, no extra beds. Food was very good. Perfect stay on a highway 1 trip. Staff was very friendly. Ask for an ocean view room.

Stopped for lunch on our way down the coast. The fish and chips were very good and had the most amazing view. Average for prices along the coast for food. Busy but service was fantastic. Wait staff super friendly and helpful. Seemed like a popular stop for many making their way up and down the coast as the place was... More
