Fernwood Resort offers rustic accommodation in Big Sur. The motel has a sun terrace and mountain views. Guests can enjoy a meal at the restaurant or a drink at the bar. Cool place. Cabin in the woods feel with beautiful grounds. Motel room was tight but comfortable with 2 adults and two teens. The twin beds plus “queen” was ideal for us. The queen was a full by the way. Food was great; though a little pricey, but that’s par for the course around here. Overall, nice spot.

Nestled among the Santa Lucia Mountains, this charming B&B is just 5 minutes’ walk to Carmel Valley Village. Parsonage Village Vineyard, Joullian Vineyards and other Carmel Valley wineries are nearby.... Everything was lovely in the most amazing scenery! What a breakfast view!
Wonderful views, great short or long hikes for everyone. Near Big Sur Lodge is Buzzard’s Trail—easy, good views. Check out Big Sur Bakery (get there early in the morning) and Nepenthe (the views are amazing) for excellent food. Of course visit Pfeiffer Beach, but get there early in the summer for parking.
Beautiful stretch of coast with lots of hiking, biking, and beachy activities. Campers delight! A few hidden gem restaurants and resorts for those who like a finer experience. Be sure to have trail and trail head maps with you as nothing is well marked and cell service very spotty. Also make sure you have up to date road closure notices as sections often closed for mudslide, road improvement, fires, etc... hike with first aid kit as emergency services on the curvy 60mi stretch are volunteer only and can be a bit of a ride.
Epic vistas, coastline, and forests. Awesome sunrises and sunsets to help lift spirits and appreciation for our environment. Fernwood Resorts was very relaxing and Nepenthe was an excellent choice for dining. Staff at both locations were very friendly and helpful.
The area is beautiful. Lots of places for walking. It takes a while to get there but it's definitely worth it. Highway 1 is such a beautiful drive. Be careful, though. The road can be a bit unsettling the first time you drive it. Twists & turns, right on the edge of the world. Plenty of places to pull over to enjoy the view. And what a view! Big Sur itself is quaint, quiet and (sometimes) quirky. I have visited Big Sur many times and am always ready to go back.
Big Sur is a great place. Unfortunately because of environmental circumstances, (mud slides and bridge damage)it is very limited in its Tourist attractions. It's a great place for hiking, coffee houses and libraries with occasional music. Also beautiful beaches and coast line. Once these repairs are done, it will be a great place again.
Highway 1 is currently being fixed (due to winter storms) and there are some places which are closed. Everything north of Pfeiffer is open except the Sea Otter refuge which was closed as well. If you want something to eat, Glen Oaks has a very good breakfast and lunch and there is a cafe near the gas station, just south of Glen Oaks . Fernwood is open for dinner but I did not try their breakfast or lunch. River Inn has dinner available and each business is not far from one another. If you are solo, there are some campsites within the area and hiking trails within a mile of Highway 1.

Excellent location within Pfeiffer Big Sur National Park. Well presented, quiet and peaceful cabins within the Redwoods. We travelled without a car (could have been the only ones) and found that there was a good range of hikes from the lodge itself to keep us entertained for a couple of days. For others who are car-less - please be aware that the bus only runs on weekends!
