vacation rental description

Nestled on the edge of a redwood canyon, with a view of the ocean to
the west and mountains to the east, this romantic Big Sur hideaway
welcomes you to retreat and renew your spirit in the beauty of Big
Sur. The cabin is private and isolated, yet minutes from the
highway, accessible by dirt road. There is a separate bath house
with a view of the ocean from the tub. The cabin has a queen size
bed and down comforter, a small refrigerator, gas burner and wood
burning stove, with glass doors that open on to a deck that surrounds
it. We are located 25 miles north of Cambria and 70 miles south of
Carmel. There are beaches and hiking trails within a few minutes
driving. We are a breathtaking hour drive to the heart of Big Sur,
where there are wonderful restaurants and galleries, beaches and
hiking trails.

traveler reviews for this big sur cabin rental

Idyllic retreat!

Review submitted: June 20, 2014   Date of arrival: June 14, 2014

We had a very quick trip to Big Sur for our anniversary. It was interesting booking a place in South Big Sur and checking out the Southernmost parts. The topography is less wooded near the sea in this area, but still gorgeous. We loved the clean lil' cabin and it was stocked with everything that we needed. It was nice to see natural cleaning supplies and yummy Big Sur local made soap. Most of all we loved all the candles, the great Big Sur hiking and history guides, the grotto bathroom, the bathtub, and the view. The curious and cute cats greeted us at the gate and we marveled at the divine atmosphere as we sauntered down the cobbled steps. Peggy was quite lovely and recommended some perfect local hikes and a scrumptious restaurant for us. Treebones is close by and very delicious! They have spotty internet there--but if you need to check in with your peeps, it is the closest place to go in this area . The internet there only works for about 30 min., but it is better than nothing. Going to this mountain retreat is all about unplugging--there is no signal of any sort here for your phone. There is a landline for emergencies--but it is a noisy line so don't rely on that either.
We expected to have a lot of bugs out there amidst the redwoods, but it wasn't a problem at all. I put on bug spray every night out of old habit--but honestly I didn't see any mosquitoes, which was very nice. We didn't go on the trails outside of the cabin because Peggy said it was a bad tick yr. Almost everything was perfect at this shangri-la except for the overgrowth of poison oak (it is all over big sur) and the scary road to get there. We have an Element so it was ok to drive there--but if you come--be prepared for a steep and bumpy ride. We drove slowly in first gear--but I wouldn't recommend timid drivers arriving to cabin after dark.
Here are some things that I would recommend to bring or to have Peggy keep in the cabin for the future:
1. A pair of binoculars/telescope. There is such excellent birdwatching here. We saw so many friendly singing birds. We were also always on the lookout for some whales (we didn't see any--but there is always next time)
2. A local phone book. We had to call and bother Peggy to get the number for some restaurants for reservations.
3. A good book
4. A deck of cards
Thank you for everything Peggy! We didn't get to leave a note in your guest book but really appreciated your darling little getaway retreat.

A True Hidden Gem

Review submitted: September 17, 2013   Date of arrival: August 28, 2013

If only we had known about the absolute beauty, peace, and tranquility this place offered, we may have chosen to only stay here on our trip to California. What an absolutely perfect place. Untouched by commercialization, it's a true step back into the beauty of nature and a perfect place to regroup and revitalize. My wife and I loved it here. From the woodburning stove to the friendly horses and house cats there to greet you upon arrival and from the mammoth redwood tress surrounding the cabin to the breathtaking ocean views from the bathhouse, I can't imagine a better place to stay in Big Sur...especially for the value. We'd recommend this place and this area to anyone. It really is one of the "must sees" and we can't wait to make it back one day.

Absolutely amazing!

Review submitted: April 10, 2013   Date of arrival: April 2, 2013

We had the fortune of spending our honeymoon at the Big Sur Mountain Retreat the first week of April, 2013. I cannot even begin to describe the wonderful stay we had. This cabin is in the most beautiful setting, and we enjoyed every moment we shared there. The bathhouse is incredible, and I am already missing my evening soaks. Thank you so much Peggy and Richard for being such gracious hosts. We couldn’t have imagined a better way to start our marriage. We truly hope to be able to visit again in the future.
