  • You will not be disappointed

    "My wife and I stayed here for three nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. We have stayed in a number of VRBO properties and it's always a little nerve-wracking to book at place based only on the photos and reviews. However, I can honestly say that you will fall in love with this place the moment you see it--and you won't want to leave. It's incredibly peaceful, the place itself is an architectural gem, and the road up to the home is magical, and the owner Mary is warm and welcoming. The yurt was fabulous and the outside fireplace under the stars was incredible. I cannot imagine a better place to stay in Big Sur."

  • 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."

  • Prefect!

    "This cabin was the perfect destination for our road trip. It is in the heart of Big Sur, on top of a mountain. At the base of the driveway is the River Inn which was a wonderful place to eat if you don't want to cook in, without having to drive in Highway 1. We did cook in and enjoyed the deck and stars. The kitchen is well stocked with the basics you need. Laverne and Ken check in on you to make sure all is right and then leave you to enjoy the area. When we left, we realized we had accidentally left some things behind. Laverne was very responsive and supportive in helping get them to us. I would definitely say here again. It was a wonderful start to a great week."

  • Lovely, charming, high-end cabin in ideal location

    "I spent and inordinate amount of time searching through every hotel, rental property, and alternative accommodation in the Big Sur area before concluding that this cabin was an absolute standout and the ideal choice. I wanted to be very close hiking and not to have to do much driving once we arrived. And, coming down from the San Francisco peninsula, I did not want to go to the far end of BigSur but be in the middle of things and wanted to visit Nepenthe as a part of the trip. While we initially felt this cabin was out of our price range, once I compared it to every other option available, it was clear it was an excellent value. In addition, because we had a kitchen, we had the pleasure and savings of being able to prepare simple meals right there. It is set up so you can prepare more elaborate meals, but we didn't want to take the time to do this. It was such a pleasure to hang out in the high-end living room, bedroom, and take advantage of the lovely bathroom. It was cozy in front of the extremely easy to operate fireplace. And the views of the windows and to the skylights of the redwoods are outstanding. We walked down to the beautiful beach at the bottom of the road twice in our three nights there. We hiked trails very close by, had breakfast once at the Big Sur lodge and once at the Big Sur bakery. We had a special meal at Nepenthe which is absolutely not to be missed. What a setting! Heading to the pleasure, I had taken out a book from the library about the history of Nepenthe and it was fascinating to read while visiting. Well we did not meet Linda, she was a phone call away and I had to call her when I broke the key in the door. She was supportive and helpful and said she would take care of it all which she did. We had a lovely time and I think this is by far the best place to stay in Big Sur."
