Big Sur Accomodations

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 29, 2007

We rented a one bedroom lodge with kitchen. It comfortably fit our small family and can easily house up to 6 guests. Don't expect much as the lodges here are pretty spartan, but there are rooms with fireplaces. Obviously, you will pay more for a fireplace, but up here it might be worth it because it does get quite cold in Big Sur. We stayed in June and the average tempetature was between 50-70 degrees.

Unique Quality: There is a heated pool and a huge flat grass area for kids to play. Your price includes free use of the park and five other state parks in the area including Point Lobos State Reserve Park, Julia Pfeiffer Big Sur Park.

Directions: Turn left from the lodge.

There was a summer....... OK, so everyone has one of those stories! But imagine this; early 70's, the summer of love, and I had a job at the intriguing Big Sur Lodge. Yeah, yeah, yeah... I lived in the dorm adjacent to the cozy little cabins and duplex that guests of the lodge stay at. And while my job was in the restaurant as hostess, I used plenty of afternoons helping a friend who was on the cabin housekeeping staff. So believe me, I've seen these babies.

Unique Quality: The cabins are comfortable and rustic (and CLEAN!), nestled in the woods. Some come with fireplaces and some with kitchens.

But it's not all about roughing it. There's also a clubhouse and pool, saunas and showers. The lodge has a restaurant, coffee shop, gift shop and ice cream counter. The restaurant's outdoor dining has a lovely view of the Big Sur River.

For those who like it rough.

Or you can go the natural way… and camp. Campsites around Big Sur vary as greatly as the lodging. Some are designated first come first serve and others take online reservations months in advanced. Of course the earlier you know you will be there, the better it is to reserve a nicer spot. If you get a couple people, you will be flying way under $10, if not closer to $3 a night. (not including, water, firewood, camping equipment and desire to get dirty)

Remember that temps can vary greatly from one location to another. Last time there, we traveled 12 miles to the general store from our campsite and there was probably a good 25 deg increase. (feh) Pack accordingly.

Unique Quality: When you camp, you can be in search of the perfect smore. Joe is doing just that. By placing the chocolate on the Graham cracker, and melting before the cracker burnt it was a daunting task, but when that was coupled with the perfectly toasted marshmallow, there was no smore better.

Directions: South of Carmel & North of Hearst Castle

The range of accommodations can go from a 1-month superspirnatural-acu-auroma therapy retreats center to a bed and shared bathrooms facilities. Regular simple rooms start at about $110.00. Some others that looked pretty awesome did not have the price listed.

Unique Quality: I saw the cheapest costing a $50 donation to some Christian place. You would be invited to their prayer, but not mandatory.
