Location + Surroundings
This special accommodation is located in a prime spot along the iconic Big Sur, a spectacular stretch of scenery running between Carmel and San Simeon on Central California's rugged Pacific coastline. The Big Sur is known for its remarkable coastlines, rich history of creative thinkers, unspoiled nature, and outdoor activities.
Located on Highway 1 (the main route along the Big Sur) this accommodation is easily accessible; glampers are just 100 miles south of San Jose (roughly 2 hours 30 minutes by car) and 30 miles south of Carmel. Please note if you are traveling to Big Sur from the South, Highway 1 is closed after Salmon Creek and requires alternate routes to access the Big Sur area. Please allow for extra travel time and research online guides and routes for the most suitable for your travels. Highway 1 is open from the North.
On the doorstep of the resort, glampers will find the 1,000-acre Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park with its Tassajara Hot Springs, hiking trails, plenty of amenities, and not forgetting the remarkable Pacific coastline.
The nearest big city is San Jose with its famous tech hub Silicon Valley, beautiful parks, public art scene, and world-class restaurants and shops. Read More
