As I mentioned before, my favorite part about our trip to Big Sur was the cabin we stayed in. Tucked away in the woods, one mile from Pfeiffer Beach and about 2 miles off of Highway 1, it felt secluded enough to really feel like we were surrounded by nature, but still close enough and centralized to the rest of Big Sur’s offerings. It was cozy and beautiful and peaceful all at the same time. So clean and quiet, with nothing but the trees to keep us company, and it was ours for 2 whole days.
I was nervous about the fact that it had no internet or cell service, being that I can’t remember what paper maps look like (hi, google maps for everything), but we got over it pretty quickly and found that getting around was fairly easy.
I found this cabin by emailing a different cabin on VRBO that we wanted to stay in. I got my hopes way up and they came crashing down when the owner said it wasn’t available. He asked if I’d like him to share my contact info with a few other owners in the area and I said YES PLEASE. Soon after, I received an email from this cabin owner saying she had a cancellation and her cabin was available on our dates. I literally fell out of my chair because I loved it so much. Well, the rest is history.
Little cabin, we’ll meet again soon, I just know it!
The cabin is listed on vrbo HERE.
It’s close to Big Sur Bakery, the general store, and Pfeiffer Beach.
The fireplace-connected thermostat was a real winner as it gets cold.
The silence! Oh the beautiful silence.
One-way roads and bridges but we managed!
Large windows and skylights made it feel like we were nestled among the oaks and redwoods.
The Grodsky-Taylor residence (that’s us) give it 5 stars.
