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 to the edge of property, the tiny treehouse overlooks trees, hills, and beach, all the way to the ocean. This isn’t a place where you spend too much time in your room - although it’s certainly comfortable, with a bed, two chairs, a small gas fireplace (We used it! It was a little chilly in March!), and a very small sink - but Big Sur is a place you want to be outside enjoying. The views from the hotel, and getting to and from it on route one are unforgettable. Clean and well-kept bathrooms are just a short walk away (yes, bathrooms are shared), and the common dining room/living room is in a large, beautiful, spacious yurt, less than a 5-minute walk from the treehouse.
If you like places that immerse you in nature, and minimize their footprint (off the grid, don’t clean your room unless you ask, quiet after 11pm), Treebones is the place for you.
