We stayed here in June 2010 for a couple of reasons. We wanted to drive Big Sur, this place was affordable, and well, it's Clint's. We were going to be swinging through town the day after his 80th birthday and crossed our fingers.
We were not disappointed. The property was amazing. We booked a table on the Restaurant's terrace our first night there. While we were enjoying our wonderful meal, Mr. Eastwood showed up and walked by our table, through the patio, down to the sheep barn and wrangled his sheep into their pens for the night while us guests watched. Yes he still looks just that good even at 80. Later, we went into the cute bar to hear some old jazz favorites. Couldn't ask for a better night!
Also, the free breakfast, which we were able to take and eat on the lawn right by the woolly sheep pasture was so peaceful and beautiful. This is living. The staff were so helpful and sweet. They really seem to love their jobs -- wouldn't you? Our waiter told us Clint shows up fairly often!
Stop by the main office for some one-of-a-kind souvenirs!
One thing I would add, the wireless internet was a little inconvenient (only in the meeting room at the corner of the property. The decor was a bit dowdy (we stayed in the main barn). And it is directly beside an elementary school so it can be a little loud on weekdays. But really? These issues are not that big of a deal.
