A historic lodge overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Big Sur.
This romantic spot dates back to the 1930s, when the Harlan family (the same family that owns it today) constructed the property as a peaceful retreat. Today, the lodge boasts ten updated cabins and rooms. Amenities here are scarce; some rooms have a sitting area, but there are no televisions or telephones. Most rooms come with panoramic views of the Pacific. An on-site restaurant offers fireside dining and a large deck from which visitors can watch whale migrations while they eat. The lodge is a short drive from a number of beaches and hikes. It is also close to the town of Lucia and the Hearst Castle in San Simeon.
