A romantic escape to Big Sur isn’t complete without the perfect little cabin to crash in. We’re firm believers that where you stay sets the tone for your trip, so if you’re looking for something cozy, pretty and private, then you’ve met your hotel match at Glen Oaks Big Sur.
A unique community of secluded cabins in the middle of the redwoods, it’s the ideal location for the lover of nature to set a restful adventure. Upon arrival, we checked into the Sycamore Cabin, Glen Oak’s newest addition; an eco-friendly, one-bedroom cabin with custom designed furnishings made from European birch plywood.
The living room gets the most beautiful light from morning up until late afternoon, and the attached kitchenette is equipped with everything you need, including delicious local wine and a smores kit.
Glen Oaks takes pride in their “green sensibility,” from their organic bath products to their natural wool blankets and organic cotton bedding. Your time there will be spent enjoying and giving back to mother nature.
After a fresh cup of coffee around our private wood-stocked fire pit, we hit the Big Sur Roadhouse Restaurant for a home-cooked style breakfast. Do yourself a favor and order the buttermilk biscuit with sausage, egg, cheese and a side of gravy… drool-worthy!
It can be easy to forget just how epic the great outdoors can be (especially coming from a big city) but Glen Oaks does an admirable job at keeping things simple and modern, while giving its guests a first-rate Big Sur experience.
When it comes time to leave, don’t rush out of there – take a stroll through the grounds, have a seat on the chairs by the river, or just take a moment to stand still and look up. More than likely you will depart feeling refreshed and gratified.
