About the property

Cabin, Studio, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Nestled on the edge of a redwood canyon, with a view of the ocean to the west and mountains to the east, this romantic Big Sur hide-away welcomes you to retreat and renew your spirit in the beauty of Big Sur.

The cabin is private and isolated, yet minutes from the highway, accessible by dirt road. There is a separate bath house with a view of the ocean from the tub. The cabin has a queen-size bed and down comforter, a small refrigerator, gas burner, and woodburning stove, with glass doors that open on to a deck that surrounds it.

We are located 25 miles north of Cambria and 70 miles south of Carmel. There are beaches and hiking trails within a few minutes driving. We are a breathtaking hour drive to the heart of Big Sur, where there are wonderful restaurants and galleries, beaches and hiking trails.

Everything you want it to be

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, serene, and beautiful. This retreat was exactly what we hoped it would be, providing us with the escape we hoped to have during our trip. The cabin is small and simple but for a few night stay there really isn't anything else needed. The bathroom was very clean and relaxing, and smelled great too! We spent much of our time away from the cabin going on hikes, grabbing lunch at Tree Bone Resort, relaxing on Sand Dollar beach, etc. The hosts were great and really respected our privacy during our stay. One thing worth mentioning is that this cabin's property area is shared with the owner's horses (2). They were very mellow and didn't seem to be bothered by us coming and going. Great retreat!

Perfect romantic getaway. Best vrbo yet!!!

  • 5 of 5

This rustic cabin was private and peaceful, literally nestled among redwoods with a waterfall to relax you and lull you to sleep. There are two beautiful horses to watch in the foreground of the sweeping ocean views. The stone steps and walkway are surrounded by beautiful gardens full of varying succulents. We will definitely return again one day!

Beautiful cabin...bad timing

  • 4 of 5

This Cabin is everything it claims to be and I echo many of the reviews that are existing. The cabin itself is simple and peaceful, and the bathhouse is simply splendid. For those who enjoy remote locations, privacy, and being cut off from the world – this cabin is for you. There are just enough kitchen essentials to get two people by. There is also a grill, though we never used it. While lying in bed you can hear the rush of the private waterfall right outside your window. Also the horses are very friendly. Peggy and Charles were very hospitable. The views of the ocean were serene.

My husband and I used the connecting trail leading from the cabin to the Cruickshank trail. We did roughly a 1.5 miles into the Cruickshank trail which started in open hillside meadow and transitioned into a redwood sanctuary with a couple of small streams to hop over along the way. It was a very lovely walk. Word of caution - If you choose to use the connecting trail from the cabin to get to the Cruickshank trail, be sure to search yourself for any pesky ticks that may have clung to you along the way. The trail is well worn, just a bit overgrown so you are likely to brush up against bushes/tall grass. We found several on ourselves after taking the trail out, and then again when we came back. We are from Wisconsin so are used to the little pests, but I wanted to mention it because we weren’t expecting to see them! Also, like most of California, this area has rattlesnakes. However, we didn’t encounter any on our walk.

The Big Sur coast line is rugged and beautiful. Though as often is the case, this rugged beauty can lend itself to some risks. Our timing for the trip was not ideal as a series of winter rain storms had recently come through which caused rock and mudslides up and down CA 1 in the Big Sur area. It caused some complications when trying to access the cabin one day, however road crews were able to clear the slide that occurred so we were able to get back to the cabin to get our things. This is my primary reason for not giving 5 stars – it’s certainly not a poor reflection on the quality of the cabin or the hospitality of Peggy and Charles. Peggy was very understanding of the challenge we encountered and certainly had no control over it. I also got the distinct impression that what we experienced was not at all common. Overall, if we ever plan to be back in the Big Sur area, we plan to use this location again.

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

What a hidden little gem....The most perfect romantic getaway, everything was impeccable, from the cozy little cabin with a wood burning stove for sleeping, the spectacular bath house with simply breath taking views of the pacific ocean, the quaint little succulence garden in the front of the cabin, the wood carved table with chairs positioned ever so perfectly to enjoy a glass of wine while watching the sunset, the horses grazing around the property, the incredibly stunning hike literally right out our front door....I could go on and on. Peggy the owner was perfect, she was available if needed but definitely provided the privacy that this place affords. It was one of our favorite trips, by far, and will be back.
