MAGICAL BIG SUR RETREAT

Big Sur Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 1-2)

Drive right up your private driveway to this enchanting, secluded, and architecturally unique cabin. Enjoy ocean views from two separate decks, surrounded by redwoods and mountaintop ridges. The large upper deck is ideal for yoga practice; mats are provided.

Panoramic windows surround a cozy wrap-around custom-made couch, cushioned with down pillows. This is a perfect setting from which to enjoy the extensive library of books on the history of Big Sur, its hiking trails, and present culture.

Cabin includes a full bathroom with large closet, indoor toilet, and claw-foot bathtub, as well as a romantic outdoor shower. Relax in bed and gaze at the stars through the large skylight.

Heat is provided by an efficient Jotul propane stove. Comfortable bed includes quality linens and down comforter.

With plenty of light, this is the perfect setting to relax and rejuvenate. The centralized location offers the best of both worlds -- only a twenty-minute drive to the restaurants, shops, and white sand beaches of Carmel, or drive South, and experience the striking views, art galleries, and renown restaurants of Big Sur.

A perfect writer's retreat, or couple's sanctuary.

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
We could not believe our good fortune in finding Embree's Big Sur cabin. The cabin lies on the edge of a lush canyon ridge with an unrestricted view of the surrounding canyon and Pacific Ocean. The deck above the cabin is the most serene location we have ever had the pleasure of using for morning yoga, breakfast, afternoon naps, and stargazing. Embree has filled the cabin with Big Sur guides, history books, an eclectic mix of music, and every personal amenity you could dream of - from yoga mats to plush towels to a gas-burning fireplace to a fabulous outdoor shower. You can actually prepare a four-course meal in the cozy but complete kitchen. Embree's artistic eye has touched every detail in the cabin. She is also a wonderful guide to the best day trips in the region, pointing us to spectacular hiking trails and beaches and sharing the history of Big Sur and the Palo Colorado's families. We have already shared this hidden and beautiful retreat with our closest friends and hope we have a chance to return many times.

PURE MAGIC

  • 5 of 5
If I could pick anywhere to have a vacation home it would be Big Sur, and this is the sort of place I’d want -- a secluded but sufficiently civilized location a couple miles off the coast highway down a winding canyon road through towering redwoods and ancient ferns, past stone and beam cottages cobbled into rocky hillsides in what looks like Faerie, with a cottage all my own that feels like a treehouse. Rustic but refined by just enough amenities to make staying a pleasure: a roomy bathroom with a clawfoot tub, shelves, and excellent water pressure; a countertop kitchen for preparing light meals: comfy bedding with abundant pillows in an upper bedroom just big enough for two; art and books; a rooftop deck for stargazing; and (given my phobias) no bothersome bugs to be seen despite this being a variety of homesteaded outback. And this helps if somebody happens to snore in such cozy confines: the couch is fine for sleeping, and with earplugs you’ll hardly hear what’s happening in the lofted bed mere feet away. And if you’re new to the area and need guidance or want an occasional neighborly chat, Embree and her beautiful home are up a walkway beyond the trees, and she’s happy to help or chat. I hesitate to write this because it’s so wonderful I’d rather keep it a secret, but I’m grateful to Embree for sharing and so will do likewise.

BEAUTIFUL GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I decided to get away to Big Sur for a few days. This was the perfect spot to land at the end of each day. We hiked over 40 miles in the four days we were there and it was lovely to have this space as a respite. Embree was a good host, helping us find the perfect spots for hikes and food nearby. I hope to return someday soon.

COMPLETE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The cabin looked exactly as the pictures, seasoned with charm and a peaceful surrounding. What did surprise me is how to get to the cabin. The roads are quite narrow and more ideal for an SUV (which we thankfully rented during our trip there). Tucked away, it was indeed a great place to get away from it all. The only regret we have is not staying longer.

Owner's Response: Mariel, so glad you enjoyed your stay at the cabin. Thanks for pointing out that an all-wheel-drive vehicle is really handy to have here in Big Sur, as all roads off of Rt. 1 (whether paved or unpaved) are narrow and winding.... definitely makes exploring this fascinating area easier.

hope to see you again for a longer visit, Embree

OUR FAVORITE PLACE TO GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from our 5th stay here, and as always it was lovely. We don't stay anywhere else when visiting Big Sur. The cabin is located at the north end of Big Sur and is the perfect place to come home to after a day of exploring. In fact, we are secretly happy when the weather is dreary because that means we can spend more time at the cabin. If the weather is nice we love to spend time on the deck or out on the large grassy area. The property is beautiful and the owner is very kind and accommodating. As our home away from home we always have everything we need from toiletries to a place to connect our iPod to olive oil, fresh fruit, flowers, and coffee. The owner has added amenities that set this cabin apart from a typical VRBO. We are already planning our next trip back!

This place is really special. A real retreat, away from it all. We were lucky to have incredible sunsets during our stay which really made it for us. A great place for a getaway.
