It’s winter in Big Sur! Evenings are cool and the highway is quiet. In this quiet time of year, we have our Trailside Café open from 8am-8pm. Please order at the counter and we will serve you at your table in our intimate fireplace room. Our pool is buttoned up until April when the weather warms up. Visit CalTrans’ website for current traffic conditions.


Take the time to let your senses open to a world of tranquil contemplation as you sit by a cool, clean stream. Listen as the water cascades over the rocks and a gentle breeze brushes the branches of the redwoods that tower over you.

Sit back in the sands of pristine beaches where your imprints are washed away with each new Pacific Ocean wave that dashes onto the shore. Look up from the retreating tide and you might see a whale or family of dolphins that swim in the salty waters just beyond the breakers. Sometimes the most amazing things happen when you do nothing at all.
