Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn

History is omnipresent at this Big Sur inn. The property dates back to the 1930s, when Helmuth Deetjen started building the place himself. Subsequently, it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Today, rooms are cozy, rustic and decorated with a blend of antiques and funky treasures from the past. Amenities are scarce; there are no televisions, phones or stereos. The on-site restaurant serves cuisine that incorporates local meats and produce. Trails from hotel buildings wind amid the redwoods of Castro Canyon. The Pacific Ocean --- wild and azure along this stretch of the California Coast --- is a short walk away.
