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.

Can you link a page or give a name of where to rent? 😀 Thanks!
I linked to the cabin a few times in the text actually 🙂 …here it is! http://www.vrbo.com/308308
Damn, I wish I’d known about this place, it looks so amazing! Deetjen’s was great, but for basically the same price we had a very tiny not very private sort of kind of one room cabin. Big Sur is amazing, but holy moly it is so expensive! Felt like we were bleeding money for mediocre food the entire time. Oh and yes (in regards to your last post), you gotta do Esalon next time you go for the 1am hot springs! It was a truly surreal experience.
Yesss cabins are the way to go, although it was more money than I initially wanted to spend. I never spend that much on accommodations in general, but took the plunge because the cabin seemed so cool. But yes, Big Sur is sooo expensive and the food is meh (although i did like the bfast at Cafe kevah). I wish we had brought groceries and made all of our food because the cabin’s kitchen is so nice. NEXT TIME. And Esalon next time FOR SURE. Although I heard everyone is naked??! I don’t know how I feel about that. Maybe some tequila would help with that.
