We stopped here for one night driving from San Francisco to Santa Barbara and thought it would be a good place to spend the night. We opted for Carmel because of its proximity to Big Sur, but in retrospect I would recommend you stay at Monterey which is a 10 min drive away.
We arrived at night and it was pitch dark. The huts are amidst many trees so it was a bit creepy to come in down a small lane in the dark. Although we were in May, it was extremely cold and in addition to the heater in the hut we had to ask for an additional heater. The bathroom was freezing.
The huts are quaint, you park right outside the door, and walk into a little foyer before waling into the bedroom. The huts could do with some renovation and cleaning. I did not feel the bedding was very clean because of how old it was.
It looked much better in the morning though - perhaps if we had arrived by morning it would not have felt as creepy.
Breakfast was cute in a little basket, but it was not excpetional. Yoghurt, fruit, juice and pastries.
