Even if you don't choose a cliff-side cabin, you still have a fantastic view of the ocean (sadly, no ocean access). This is not a super fancy place but it's quiet, romantic and cozy. Also, where else in the area will let you stay for just one weekend night?! Breakfast is much more than a basic continental. Check in and check out is at the lodge's store which seems to always be busy, so staff isn't super attentive but they're friendly enough. Also, it's just over 20 miles from the heart of Big Sur. All in all, I'd be happy to return.
Pros: view, comfy bed
