We had the best time here. The scenery was absolutly amazing and the photos doesn't make it justice. Both the bathroom house and the main cottage was soo thoughthrough and very beautiful in all it's little details. Hummingbirds, beautiful flowers and redwoodtrees outside the window. We adored this place and truly recommend it!

IDYLLIC RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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.

FANTASTIC CABIN!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took a few days off after our wedding in Big Sur, and this place was perfect. Very well kept, clean, cozy, beautiful and peaceful. The bath house is probably the best part about it, with views of the ocean. The views from this place are incredible and you could just sit for days and days and never get bored. Access to nice hiking trails, and close to great surf spots. We cooked in all nights but one, and that night we had a great sushi dinner at Tree Bones, a yurt resort a few miles up the road. A storm came through on the last day and it was magical watching it come across the ocean and there is no place I'd rather have been while it was pouring outside. We read books, built a fire, and it was lovely. The horses are a great addition and come to say good morning too! Thank you Peggy and Richard!!!

RIDICULOUSLY COZY!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were spending our 10th anniversary in Big Sur. We had just hiked out 10miles from the Ventana Wilderness where we spent a night at Sykes hot springs. Tired, hungry and a bit dusty we were so looking forward to the next half of our trip, the cabin and bathhouse. We began our ascent up the road to the gate, and I just started laughing as it's a bit exciting to be honest. Just drop it into 2nd gear and keep steady on the gas and you'll be fine. We were greeted by 2 gorgeous horses and a wonderful silence as we pulled up and hopped out of the car. Within an hour's time we had each taken a glorious shower in the clean, rustic and delicious smelling bathroom, with homemade soap (that I'm going to order more of), changed into our cozy attire, started a fire in the wood stove in the cabin, popped a bottle of wine, and just exhaled. My husband summed it all up by saying, "It's ridiculously cozy here". We enjoyed the rest of our weekend, eating our dinner and breakfast at the quaint table for 2, reading by the fire, soaking in the deep clawfoot tub with endless hot water and ocean views, watching the humming birds and monarch butterflies tease the flowers in the garden, lounging in the chairs at the over look while having our morning coffee, or evening glass of wine and listening to the owls talk to eachother, and the crickets serenade us. At night we'd let the fire die down and open the windows to allow the fresh ocean breeze swirl over us, as we pulled the soft, clean linens up to our chins. The cabin took on so many moods throughout the day, as the light would dance through the windows on all sides and cast shadows and warmth throughout the interior, further warming the soul of this place. At night the moon light lit up the stoic redwood trees that surrounded us, and stood guard just outside the door. There's not much water right now in the creek beside the window by the bed, but I can only imagine how wonderful that sounds during the wet season. We brought our food, and drink, and clothes and were well equipped with everything else we needed. Simplicity at it's best. Thank you Peggy and Richard for creating and sharing such a wonderful retreat. We're already talking about returning for a longer stay someday....maybe for our 15th!
