Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
We are 2 artists living and working in Big Sur for nearly 40 years. We teach workshops at nearby Esalen Institute in art, photography, dance, meditation and unfolding one's intuition. We both exhibit our art in local Big Sur & Carmel galleries, and are in museum and private collections worldwide. We love living and creating on this property!

Why Owners chose Big Sur
There is no other place like Big Sur in the world, with it's breathtaking beauty & it's natural environment. We have some of the worlds greatest & most inspiring teachers, thinkers, artists, writers, poets and illuminaries living here or who have lived here or passed through. The local people, like a tribe of creative individuals, really know how to live life as human 'beings', rather than human doings. The land calls to us in her quiet spiritual whispers, where One can slow down and appreciate the simplicity of just BEING. We feel blessed everyday and are so very grateful to own and live on this property here in God's most magnificent creation!

Big Sur Gem
The Gallery House is a special slice of "life" on the bluffs of Big Sur...magical location with rustic care-free appeal...
Our stay at the cottage was absolutely amazing!
To be able to stay on such a special piece of property in Big Sur, we will forever treasure.
The cottage was warm, cozy, clean and Cynthia was easy to reach and very welcoming.
Can’t wait to return someday to experience this gorgeous place again!
A piece of heaven
The Gallery House does not disappoint. Photos are accurate. The views from the property are breathtaking, the home is perfect for two guests, the fireplace provides warmth and a great sense of coziness.
There are lanterns provided if you want to go outside in the late evening to see the stars. The hosts have provided house shoes and warm robes as well. I will re book in the future.
Magic. Absolute magic.
This place is nothing short of a slice of heaven. Do yourself a favor - stop looking and hit book now. We can’t wait to come back.
