Nestled in Castro Canyon in the middle of the redwoods and across the street from the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur. About a mile down the road from Nepenthe. I stayed in the Van Gogh room and it exceeded every expectation I had. It was quiet, mind you, you have to share the bathroom, but that's cool, surrounded by beautiful scenery, and just an absolutely gnarly experience, period. The staff is amazing. They are very friendly and helpful about everything, trails to hit, restaurants to try besides their own. You get free coffee and tea and the super awesome, lovely hostess will give you some local wine samples before you settle in on an actual glass. The Santa Pietra Pinot was quite good.
Unique Quality: Amazing character. Nothing else like it. Unpretentious, artsy, beautiful, well-landscaped, again, amazing staff, super-friendly.
Directions: Mile Marker 43 Pacific Coast Highway, you can't miss it.
The quintessential Big Sur lodge, there’s no place like Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn, a vintage-1930s compound of rough-hewn redwood lodges listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Covered with flowering vines and surrounded by towering trees, they look like fairy-tale cottages, each one an odd shape and size, and furnished with mismatched carved wooden antiques, rag-wool rugs, and antique curios.

Unique Quality: A historic inn, located in Castro Canyon. Rustic cabins, and no luxuries, only beautiful, natural surrounding with nothing but nature around.
