We wanted an adventure and experience, not just a hotel room. Treebones was perfect!!! The food was amazing from the healthy continental breakfast with eggs, waffles and homemade granola, amazing sushi bar and the restaurant was personable and the food excellent. We did 5 of the suggested hikes and found so much more than we expected...great work outs, incredible views,...

Thank you for your review. You are correct that Treebones is definitely a unique adventure and experience -not your typical hotel stay! We are glad to hear you enjoyed the many hikes in the area and found our restaurant to be as excellent as we aspire it to be.

We were advised to stay at Treebones by Irish friend and we simply loved the place. Very comfortable and spacious Yurts in the middle of the nature. Our yurt even had a ping pong table. We shared a yoga practice early in the morning with the friendly staff and some guests. The restaurant is nice but a little expensive. A...

Treebones Resort is the perfect place to enjoy the nature and beauty of Big Sur without actually camping (although you can bring a tent and use one of their camping lots if that’s your style). We called just a day or so before we arrived, and although the yurts were full, they offered us the newly opened treehouse. Tucked off...

It's wonderful to hear that Treebones helped you to feel closer to nature and so glad you were able to get in on short notice! Thank you for pointing out the restrooms are a short walk away, viewers will find that helpful!

We went for a trip last August, stayed in the tree house, and had the most incredible time ever. I have never camped in my life, and for me, it was the perfect balance of nature and pampering. The food in the lodge was delicious (albeit pricy), and the quiet time with no phones and tv was so needed. Breakfast...

This resort concept is slightly risky but Treebones pulls it off with flying colors! The yurts are clean, comfortable and spacious. The location offers a panoramic view of Big Sur's coast line as well as mountain peaks. The restaurant and sushi bar offer yummy options for lunch and dinner, and the complementary breakfast is abundant, fresh and delicious! The pool...

We had so much fun staying in yurt #16, which is somewhat removed from the other yurts and therefore more private. The view from our deck was awesome. The gas fireplace, which was kind of touchy and lighted with a boom that rattled the glass door to the fireplace, warmed the yurt enough that we could take off our jackets....
