  • We Didn't Want To Leave!

    "My girlfriend and I stayed for 2 night's in Embree's cozy and charming Big Sur cabin on her beautifully terraced/gardened property overlooking the lush hills of the northern part of Big Sur. The views of the hills and ocean were stunning. Hawks soared constantly overhead and the windows of the cabin were frequented by large butterflies of many varieties. The quiet of the canyon was so peaceful and fulfilling. The cabin itself is the ideal, classic, authentic, quintessential Big Sur cozy hideaway (add on epic views!). Charming, clean, fresh and amply stocked with almost all of your needs. Crackling automatic fireplace to boot! The bed was wonderfully comfortable with clean, fresh linen (... which triggered a couple of unintended, but welcomed, late wake-ups!) A favorite aspect of the cabin for me was taking a bath while watching the hawks out of the large picturesque windows of the bathroom ... and the hot showers off the back porch of the cabin while looking across the vast landscape of the hills and canyon. Embree was an excellent host; she made us feel welcome and well cared for. She made sure that we knew how to come and go from her home out to the central attractions of Big Sur, and how to get safely back to the cabin ... she even provides hand-drawn maps to keep in your car during your stay! She made herself available to us if we needed her, though she allowed to have 100% privacy during our stay, which is also made possible through the arrangement of her property. Embree's cabin was also the perfect distance to the central Big Sur Area: Pfeiffer Big Sur, Deetjen's, Nepenthe, Point Sur, Bixby Bridge, etc. ... everything within 20 minutes or less. A highlight of our stay was also a massage experience that was found at "Namaste Therapuetic Bodyworks" which boasts all 5 star reviews. This wonderful place was located in the town of Big Sur: 46840 Hwy 1 Ste 9, Big Sur, CA 93920 right next to the Big Sur River Inn Thank You to Embree for surprising us with a gem of an experience at her wonderful cabin. We recommend it highly and we can't wait to come again! Noah and Gretchen, Santa Cruz, CA."

  • Just beautiful

    "I know my stay was some time ago now and I could just have not written this review, but I was thinking about 2014 and this truly was a highlight. A wonderful place to retreat to with my family, in a magical setting. We loved the fairy garden, the warm and cozy cabin and all its amenities. Sofanya was a welcoming and friendly hostess who happily catered to our whims and shared her dinner table with us. Beautiful."

  • Magical canyon trailer for a woman traveling alone

    "The canyon and the trailer will instantly become your happy place. I read two novels, wrote letters, hiked down into the magical canyon, feel asleep each night to the sound of the stream and awoke to the chatter of the morning birds, feasted on the most delicious fresh eggs from the hens (otherwise known as the "Henriettas"). All this, and I was only there two nights, and one full day (NOT ENOUGH!!!). I wanted a place to get away -- to get completely away, from the demands of my job, from the constant buzzing of the internet and my phone. To find my own voice again away from the clutter of my city life. As a woman traveling alone, there might be concerns going to a remote cabin like this. There is nothing to worry about -- Richard is a kind and gracious host, as respectful of the privacy of his guests as he is of the wondrous nature around him. He really cares about his land and the creatures that inhabit it, and while I was one of those, I felt cared for too-- not directly per se, but through the touches Richard has done to build this place of respite. From showering outdoors while staring at the sparkling sea, to the best bathtub ever -- you are literally bathing on the edge of splendor. The trailer is a perfect space, cleanly and softly decorated, well equipped for cooking! It is all, in a word, magical. We hear that word too much -- the trailer on the cliff -- it really really is that. Pure magic. Now, when can I go back?"
