While fixing our LA-SFO itinerary, my husband and I decided to squeeze in 2 days in Big Sur. We’ve always enjoyed the drive via State Route 1/ Pacific Coast highway , although it’s a few hours longer, the view along the way makes it worth it.
I had a difficult time finding a place to stay for our group of 8 (plus , it was Memorial Day weekend ). Luckily , The Big Sur Lodge had 2 rooms available last minute. Unlike the other resorts which could only accomodate 3 persons maximum per room, the Big Sur Lodge offers cabins good for 6. Their rooms are spacious with a fireplace (not all rooms) and a little patio. You won’t get any mobile signal in this area unless you leave Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park (where the lodge is conveniently located) and they don’t have wifi . Having no mobile signal and wifi was actually nice… I really appreciated the silence and it made me enjoy my surroundings more – of course, my kids thought otherwise! Hahaha.
One queen sized bed
and 2 double sized beds (no photo of the other bed :P)
Areas we were able to see at Big Sur:
2. Andrew Molera State Park
3. Pfeiffer State Beach
4. Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park
Places to Eat:
We really enjoyed our breakfast here. They have the best bacon and hashbrown. And they have free wifi!
Fernwood Bar & Grill
My sons loved their fish and chips and pizza and their outdoor area is really nice with trees all around you and you can actually hear the water running down the river. And they have free wifi!
This has definitely been the best stopover and we’ll definitely be back with or without wifi or cell signal 🙂
