    Absolutely stunning property. Surrounded by redwoods with incredible views of the coast. Very peaceful. The staff were very kind and helpful. The room was clean and well maintained. Close to the best hikes in Big Sur.

    Amazing breakfasts and meals. Location fantastic! Literally 10 minutes from the (unmarked) turn off to Pfeiffer Beach (no signs by the road, but definitely a must see!) and minutes from other state parks with waterfalls. I suggest getting a forest...
