  • Absolutely perfect for family celebration

    "This is way overdue but I must write about our experience for Father's Day/60th birthday celebration. Our children range from 30 to 15 years of age). The drive up the mountain was a dirt road (all directions very clear) but I would advise going during daylight hours as it is very narrow and unlit. It is not rough enough for any special vehicle. Once I made the drive to the house (I want to say it takes about 15 minutes?), it was pretty easy to come and go but we really had little reason to leave. We usually visit places right on the ocean, but this was a wonderful surprise. The exceptional vistas from all directions were breathtaking. The photos are accurate, but there is so much more. The property is large and we all had our space for reading or playing around. We ate almost every meal out at a table under a lighted tree overlooking the ocean. There was a "plunge" pool adjacent that our son loved and we loved to cool our feet. Our older daughter got the younger girls up before dawn to snuggle in the outdoor bed and watch sunrise. Our older son watched the sunrise from the adjacent hot tub. I brought the coffee. It was magical. The hosts were very kind to back our car down the beautiful but steep driveway to the door.The property was very clean, very well maintained and incredibly unique. It was a "retreat" in every sense. All sorts of comfy places to sit outside and inside and lots of birds and wildlife. It was nice for the older kids to have separate "pod" areas to sleep, but everyone keep running to get everyone out together for something or the other. Our eldest daughter is a chef so her gift for the occasions was to compile all the ingredients and prepare meals in advance. We brought a large cooler and lined it with dry ice so even the frozen foods could be transferred to the kitchen safely. A few of appliances in the kitchen were not super modern but much more than adequate with far more amenities than we expected. The owners ware helpful above and beyond about everything but never intrusive. We texted photos to all our friends. Lots of unique/artistic places and beaches to visit in the vicinity but we had more fun at the estate. Loved this place and would recommend this for families with school age children and older. This place is not for the disabled (lots of stairs and multi levels). Very beautiful, very romantic and so very different. Many thanks to this interesting and kind couple for making our celebrations so special"

  • Can't imagine a better place!

    "When we arrived it was raining and foggy. Much needed for California right now so we were happy for the residents and plants. Since the view was only thick fog, we investigated the cabin and fell instantly in love with it. It has so much charm and personality, if it were in the middle of the forest without a beautiful view of the ocean we would have been happy. The property was everything we hoped it would be, in fact better than the pictures. After we were there for about 15 minutes, the rain let up and the fog began to roll out. Before our eyes, this amazing view came into focus like waking from a dream. I'm telling you, the pictures don't do it justice. We spent three days at big Sur Cabin and wish it were three weeks! We will definitely return. Lois was great! We never saw Gail so if you are concerned that you won't have privacy because of the on site caretaker, don't be. Her gardening skills are most obvious and the cabin was beautifully clean so she take great care of the property. We have never done a VRBO before but this experience was nothing but positive so we will do it again in the future, most certainly at Big Sur Cabin."

  • The Best Cottages in Big Sur! Plus wonderful hosts.

    "My girlfriend and I stayed in one of the two cottages on Janie's and Peter's Country Flat Farm for two nights in early January -- and in hindsight, we should have stayed a LOT longer!! The cottage was absolutely stunning with views of the wilderness and ocean along with it's privacy and cozy feel. We celebrated our one year anniversary and my girlfriend's birthday here -- sharing a bottle of wine while watching the beautiful sunset from our room. Even the bathtub had views that urged you to extend your trip and soak in the beauty of Big Sur on such a tranquil and wholesome farm. We couldn't have been more fortunate and delighted to have stayed here. A word about the hosts (Janie and Peter) -- terrific. Janie was so very accommodating and even met us at the driveway to show us in, and shared her thoughts on the best restaurants in the area that could possibly cater to us as vegetarians. They really left us to enjoy our time after showing us in, but invited us to wonder around the farm and pick fresh lemons and apples anytime, which we certainly did (they were so fresh and delicious!). Out of all our previous experiences on VRBO and AirBnB (more than I can count) plus our 12 nights along the California Coast as part of this trip, our stay at the cottage on Country Flat Farm really topped it all. It was the most serene, wonderful place we have stayed together. Looking forward to staying here again!! Thanks Janie & Peter!"

  • Dreamy Comfortable Home

    "I looked at this property before but opted for a 100 year old cabin closer to Hwy 1. I was to rebook the 100 year old place but the listing showed not available. I later found the site was not working. How lucky for my family of 4. We found this cabin to be much more accommodating and comfortable. This is a charming home cared for with love and pride. My husband and I spent a great amount of time on the deck overlooking the forest and ridge. Just being, listening to wildlife at night, watching the forest come alive in the mornings. The deck is large and comfortable, it pulled me like a magnet upon rising. My husband was drawn there when the sun set after our day trips to the various parks and towns. He is a star gazer and brought his portable telescope for viewing. He grilled steaks one night & declared he must have a gas grill just like it. The grown kids enjoyed the panoramic views from the rooms & wifi. They were up with the dawn bird watching, enjoying the ridge wake up. The kitchen is spacious, well stocked with a large separate dining room. We dined and played board games in the dining room. It's a perfect floor plan for families. We ran the roads somewhat. The parks and area are otherworldly beautiful. The same can be said about the ridge house. We enjoyed being right there and not always going. We did dine at the local tap house burger night and dined in Monterey as well as shopped. The Ridge is close to everything but far away to wrap yourself and your senses in tranquility and peace. Thank you Cheryl & Jake for your lovely hospitality. We will be back!"
