I stayed at Treenbones by myself and did the ocean view tent camping. First of all, it was 42 degrees, raining and windy and it was still magical. The campsite was clean, the ground was freshly wood chopped, I felt like I had a ton of privacy in my space and the view... without question, the most beautiful camping view...

There are so many things to love about this place. We have eaten at the Treebones Wild Coast Restaurant and the Sushi Bar several times while camping at nearby Kirk Creek, but this was our first overnight stay. The location is incredible, and there are not many places in the world where a resort like this could be duplicated. We...

My fiance and I stayed in Yurt 8 from 12/24-26. It was the perfect Christmas getaway. To be able to disconnect from the world and surround ourselves with the beauty of Big Sur was amazing. We drove around Highway 1 on Christmas Day and we were able to easily see all of the highlights of Big Sur. The Yurt itself...

Loved the unique experience that felt super connected to the amazing surroundings. I spent Christmas eve and day here (2 nights) with my 12 year old daughter.

I write that to let folks who would not enjoy the place to stay away for those of us who love it. I know that sounds a little mean, but you really do sleep in a giant round tent with no bathroom and no wifi. I loved being disconnected and the bathroom thing was not a big deal. The bed...

I'm all about finding unique places to stay when I travel. For me, that's a big part of the experience. Treebones was exactly that: unique, picturesque, simply fun. We stayed two nights -- and there was this crazy windstorm both nights -- but it made it all the more an unforgettable experience. The staff was super friendly, the food was...

We enjoyed our stay at Treebones! The restaurant offered good wine and delicious food which was perhaps overpriced, but this seemed to be true everywhere in Big Sur. The yurts were comfortable, but heater in our 5 person yurt didn't keep up. Overall, it was fun and definitely something different.

Thank you for your visit and so glad to hear you enjoyed our local wine list and the delicious menu our Chef prepares. I am sorry you were in in a cold snap and found the yurt too chilly.

I'm not one to write a review but I had an amazing experience at Treebones! We camped at campsite 3 the weekend after Thanksgiving. Even with all the rain and wind we had a wonderful time.

Thank you for visiting and sharing your experience with others on this platform.
