I was hoping that this place would allow me to spend a weekend reading a book and having a glass of wine while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Big Sur. Upon getting there I quickly realized that this would not be possible - the deal breaker is that Highway 1 is super super close, and at times at night I... More

My husband and I totally enjoyed our stay at Treebones resort. Our yurt was both immaculate and comfortable. We also enjoyed the delicious complementary breakfast, complete with homemade granola, organic yogurt, eggs, waffles and fresh fruit.

We stayed in one of the mountainside yurts for our "mini moon" and it was everything we could have dreamed of! Up on a hill, the resort feels like a magical hideaway. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and contribute to the wonderful environment. All of the meals we had were delicious, enjoying wine on the porch overlooking the ocean is not... More

Thank you for your recent visit. Your review title:: "adult paradise' does summarize the experience of many. The unplugged nature of our remote setting (satellite wifi is limited), no cell towers nearby...helps to create the ambience guests like (and children and young teens often find not as stimulating as they like...that' s ok!) We are best enjoyed by couples or... More

My husband and I finally took a vacation! We stayed at a campsite for three nights. It was awesome, better than we expected. The staff we met were wonderful and helpful (Darrel/Carl). The complimentary breakfast, in the lodge, was delicious and that organic peanut butter is to die for! My husband enjoyed the sushi chef's "Trust the Chef" one night... More

I have always wanted to drive up the coast to Big Sur, and I have always wanted to go glamping.

We stayed in the Autonomous Tent for the first night of our honeymoon. The tent was booked for well over a year, but we checked Twitter occasionally and there was a cancellation for that night. We drove down highway 1 from San Francisco, stopping along the way and got to Treebones in Big Sur around 6pm. I would recommend checking... More

Our family of 4 (2 teenagers included) stayed in Yurt 7, which overlooks the ocean. It was spacious enough for us all, was comfortably furnished, and had a private sink and gas fireplace (which heated the space quite efficiently). The communal bathrooms (toilets & showers) were a few steps away in the main lodge, and were clean and nicely appointed.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unusual and unique eco-lodge experience with immense expansive ocean views on Big Sur's remote and rugged South Coast. Guests enjoy cozy comforts in fully furnished tent-like yurts or choose a campsite and bring all their own tents/gear to camp. Resort 'feel' in rustic setting. Two popular restaurant venues with cozy, communal atmosphere boast great service, organic, locally sustained cuisine with same great views. Massage services, hiking information, and modern book & sundries store on premises. Sustainability statement: We are dedicated to providing an honest eco-experience. We are off grid and over 50% sustained by solar power. We recycle and utilize our onsite garden and chickens to complete a composting cycle. We are also human-sustained: Meaning..we serve tourists with our hearts and our hands and there are humans behind the service here..not robots! ... more   less
