Treebones is a special place which we returned to for a second time this New Year. Even on the second visit the entrance is was very easy to miss, which we did and when we eventually got to the reception desk we were 'greeted' by a less than enthusiastic and slightly bewildered looking host. Our friendly greeting went strangely unreciprocated...

What an incredible place to stay! We stayed one night (wish we could've stayed longer) in yurt #6, which had a partial ocean view. After a rather harrowing drive to the resort due to Highway 1 being closed due to rock slides and being re-routed through one of the state parks at night (lots of twisty, narrow roads with no...

Treebones surpassed all of our expectations! From the location, to the food, to the warm and welcoming staff. Our yurt was darling and I could of stayed under the layers of blankets all day next to the little fire. The best thing was hearing the wind through the trees at night, seeing the ocean below and viewing the stars. This...

Weather was beautiful but yurts plenty warm and so cool. Staff very friendly, and accomodations wonderful. The restaurant was...

We took our #29 anniversary trip to the coast/Big Sur and then to Carmel Valley. I read about this place on the Big Sur website and watched the Travel Channel video. Seemed like such a great deal and unique place to stay. We were delighted with this resort. The Handy family has worked so hard to carve out an ecofriendly...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Unusual and unique eco-lodge experience with immense expansive ocean views on Big Sur's remote and rugged South Coast. Guests enjoy cozy comforts in fully furnished tent-like yurts or choose a campsite and bring all their own tents/gear to camp. Resort 'feel' in rustic setting. Two popular restaurant venues with cozy, communal atmosphere boast great service, organic, locally sustained cuisine with same great views. Massage services, hiking information, and modern book & sundries store on premises. Sustainability statement: We are dedicated to providing an honest eco-experience. We are off grid and over 50% sustained by solar power. We recycle and utilize our onsite garden and chickens to complete a composting cycle. We are also human-sustained: Meaning..we serve tourists with our hearts and our hands and there are humans behind the service here..not robots! ... more   less
