My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Treebones to celebrate our 6 year anniversary. We stayed in Yurt 14. Great views, calm atmosphere, INCREDIBLE sushi (best we've ever had). We did a yoga class on Saturday afternoon. Enjoy this peaceful retreat, and book in advance so you have something very special to look forward to for a couple... More

My wife insisted on taking this trip, I was a bit skeptical. By the end, I was a Treebones convert. They technically have internet in the lounge. However, it is pretty weak and should not be relied on. This is perfect opportunity to get away and unplug. The yurts are spacious and comfortable and the shared shower/restroom facilities are clean.... More

Thank you also for suggesting that guests take advantage of the opportunity to "unplug" while staying with us. While it's true we have very limited WiFi available in the lodge, aside from a... More

We stayed two nights and considering how far in advance this place is booked, we were lucky to get in on a cancellation that came up on Twitter during the week we wanted to travel. We were in # 4 which is a partial view Yurt. We were fogged in most of our trip so we didn't get to enjoy... More

Treebones is an unusual mix of comfort and camping, with beautiful sea views, which we really liked a lot. It is a rugged, outdoorsy place, but we got to sleep in a really comfortable bed, with electricity, a sink and heating in our spacious yurt! (Bathrooms and showers are in the main lodge). There are also some amazing campsites on... More

We loved every moment at Treebones. It was so beautiful, peaceful and spiritual. Everyone staff member was so helpful and kind. I loved walking in the early mornings to the meditation swing and the yoga stage. Wow, can't wait to come back. Pure magic!

I would stay here to tent camp or yurt anytime. This time for my husbands 40th, I splurged and stayed in the brand new autonomous tent. Wow!! Wonderful and beautiful view. There is a bit of road noise, but the ocean drowns it out for the most part. Now my favorite part was the food... I am a sushi snob,... More

My new wife and I stayed in the Treehouse during the middle of our honeymoon from SF to LA. It was a fantasy come to life - we couldn't believe it as we walked across a rope bridge to our quaint treehouse overlooking the Pacific ocean. A dream come true. Remember to bring warm clothes. Dinner was great (if a... More

My roommate and I were taking a road trip down the Pacific Coast Highway and decided to spend two nights in Big Sur.

What an incredible place to enjoy your visit to this cloud kingdom. The yurts are fantastic - very warm, dry and well equipped (gas stoves, elec, hot and cold water - and a very comfy bed).

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
