    This is a lovely, relaxing, place, perfect for a romantic getaway or sabbatical. It is so quiet, in the heart of the Big Sur town, but removed from the main highway, surrounded by so much nature. I very much appreciate that children are not allowed,...More

    Didn't realize this was not an option any more. While breakfast at the main lobby was great, we really enjoy going over to the restaurant and enjoying the view. The Ventana is our Happy Place and has been for nearly 30 years.
