Last month my husband and I traveled to Big Sur after dropping our son at his college.
The fabulous vistas and awe inspiring nature of Rt.1 were a very welcome sight, and when we made it to Treebones, it became clear we had made the right choice. The yurt (#10) was ample and cozy at the same time, the view from its deck, amazing. The organic garden, the vegetation around the pathways and views were such a delight to all senses: birds singing and hopping among the veggies and flowers, scents from herbs, and wild flowers, and the far away chorus of sea lions. Then you go in to the pool and hot tub with great Pacific views (and good wifi reception, good to check messages once a day when there is no cell signal around), grab something from the bar or the fantastic sushi (confession:only tried the poki, because we couldn't resist it due to hawaii memories, and it was truly amazing). The restaurant served wonderful dinners and breakfast (included), reception people were friendly and knowledgeable about hikes and places to go, all in all a wonderful place to be! Yurts don't have bathrooms, but they do have sinks and heaters, bathrooms/showers are a short walk away along path.
