  • Beautiful cabin...bad timing

    "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."

  • Very Pleased!

    "Just returned home from a wonderful vacation. This cabin is beautiful, spacious (We fit 6 people/3 couples), clean and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It is in a perfect location to Big Sur. Very close to a few Big Sur Parks and Carmel. If we come back to the area we will definitely look into staying here again. Thanks for a great visit!"

  • Relaxing home away from home.

    "This is our third stay at the house in Carmel Woods. We enjoy that we are able to unwind at the end of day in this house. It has every convenience you could ask for. It is our home away from home."

  • Life's reset button

    "I am a stay at home mom of two little ones needing a small break from the daily grind. I needed to get away from television, phones, and civilization in general. I wanted to be off the grid. Richard's place was absolutely perfect. I felt very comfortable and safe there. Now, if you're looking for a place that has room service and pay-per-view, this isn't for you. It's rustic and simple and everyone should try it. I spent two nights and wish I could have stayed longer. The bed must be made from Hogwarts students, because it was magical. The time spent hiking down to and sitting along his creek was rejuvenating. Richard himself was kind, providing, and a wonderful conversationalist if you care for a chat. While you are there, throw a stick for Zoe, hike up to the top of the property, walk your way to Julia Pfeiffer Burns, and definitely, hike down to his creek. Take a bath every night in the rustic tub at the bathhouse (yes, the inside is a little cracked and it is even better for it) and shower surrounded by the splendid outdoors of Big Sur."
