My girlfriend and I just got home from an amazing weekend at Treebones. The drive up from LA is beautiful. Stop in Cambria and grab a bite- cute little town- check out Robin's - a charming restaurant. Anyway, when we got there the staff, Pete, was incredibly friendly. Really made us feel welcome. Helped us unload our car and packed a golf cart and brought us out to our yurt. We opened the door and were so excited. A beautiful round yurt with wood floors, a great bed, propane fireplace, large table, sink, places to store our clothes- clothes hooks, another space heater, large skylight at the top of the dome. We were in heaven. Since it was raining slightly we didn't really get to use our deck with two aidirondack chairs- but the view was great. We could hear sea lions in the morning an everything. The lodge is great and if you opt to eat dinner there (I would) you get a great meal and intermingle with the other guests. The lodge has great games, books and awesome views- very comfortable. It is like upscale camping. Bathrooms are clean and showers are fine. If you want to do nothing but veg., you can do that- if you want to hike- its right there. The staff is totally cool and can give you all kinds of advice about the area. We ate at Post Ranch (good, but pricey) and were gonna hit the hot springs at Esalen, but couldn't stay up until 1am! All in all Treebones is awesome. From the friendly staff (felt like family), to the location (sweet views) and the amazing resorts (I want to go back next weekend!) this place is awesome. Enjoy.
