I am always planning our family's next adventure. A few months ago when I suggested "glamping" in a yurt at Big Sur as part of our Spring Break trip, they were surprised yet not surprised at the same time. :) When I first booked the trip, Big Sur was recovering from drought and forest fires. The winter brought rains and...

Dear rachealadams, Your kind words and praise mean so much to us. Thank you for making the extended journey over Nacimiento-Fergusson Rd, we certainly appreciate the extra effort. It sounds like your stay was worth the challenging drive. While the road is paved, and maintained... it is good for inquiring guests to know that the current alternate route is windy...

Treebones was a 'bucket list' item but when we heard the problems with the roads we were skeptical. I am so glad that we decided to go on this adventure. The yurt was amazing and the views were spectacular! We enjoyed the views of whales going by from our yurt. The folks are very friendly and the area was lovely!...

Thank you so much for deciding to stay with us despite the less than ideal road conditions. So happy to hear we lived up to your expectations, and that you could cross us off your bucket list. You are absolutely right- we are perfect for folks who love nature, adventure and (glamorous) camping! We hope you will stay with us...

Glamping is a new hobby thanks to Treebones! Already booked our next trip! Sushi is a MUST! Big Sur is simply gorgeous and Treebones has an excellent vantage point of capturing its beauty! PS: Who needs a white noise machine when this place exists?!

I surprised my husband with a night at Treebones for his birthday, and it was even better than I expected! It was one of the most amazing places I have ever been and very romantic. The yurt was so unique and beautiful, the gas heater/fire place worked wonderfully (our stay was in mid December), the sink inside the yurt is...

Booked the autonomous tent for our anniversary weekend and loved it! The tent is beautiful, clean and comfortable. It was great having a shower and restroom in the test, but the real gems are the gas fireplaces (indoor/on the deck). We never left treebones and just enjoyed reading, looking out over the ocean, fireplace(s), and the hot tub. The staff...

Thank you for sharing your recent experience in the Autonomous Tent. It is truly the height of glamping..in a tent! yes! Unlike the yurts that share restrooms and showers, the A-Tent has it's own shower and restroom, completely self sustaining and off our "off grid"! if you can imagine that! Glad you loved your time here so much, the attentive...

This resort is very relaxing & the views are breathtaking. So many gorgeous vistas. We loved our time out on the patio deck of our yurt looking out over the Pacific Ocean. Would recommend this for those that like to unplug and enjoy camping/glamping.

We enjoyed our stay last week and the views were incredible, but we did feel the food, and the experience overall, were quite over-hyped and overpriced. We ordered the two vegetarian meals at dinner (the thai curry and the pesto pasta) and were very disappointed with the quality of the pasta dish in particular--we've made better with a jar of...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unusual and unique eco-lodge experience with immense expansive ocean views on Big Sur's remote and rugged South Coast. Guests enjoy cozy comforts in fully furnished tent-like yurts or choose a campsite and bring all their own tents/gear to camp. Resort 'feel' in rustic setting. Two popular restaurant venues with cozy, communal atmosphere boast great service, organic, locally sustained cuisine with same great views. Massage services, hiking information, and modern book & sundries store on premises. Sustainability statement: We are dedicated to providing an honest eco-experience. We are off grid and over 50% sustained by solar power. We recycle and utilize our onsite garden and chickens to complete a composting cycle. We are also human-sustained: Meaning..we serve tourists with our hearts and our hands and there are humans behind the service here..not robots! ... more   less
