Ten acres that feel like a thousand. We give you something you cannot get at even the finest and most exclusive resorts: COMPLETE PRIVACY! CLOTHING OPTIONAL 24/7. Electronic steel gate at the bottom of the hill.
Designed for the senses - all of them. Give yourself a treat and spend a week in luxury on the ragged edge of the Western World.
SUMMER RENTALS ONLY. SEVEN NIGHT MINIMUM, SAT. TO SAT.; FOUR ADULTS OR ONE FAMILY MAX; NO EVENTS SUCH AS WEDDINGS. (But if you honeymoon here we promise your marriage will last forever!)
One of the finest views in America. At an elevation of 1,500 feet you are generally above the coastal fog. One mile from Highway One. Sunrise over your meadow, sunsets over the ocean. Wildlife, in addition to your own: deer, bobcats, coyotes, wild turkeys, fox and condors! Very private: Electronic locked steel gate, clothing optional 24/7. I Pod dock, XM satellite radio, three LED HDDVR's, two speakers in every room. WiFi and internet service. Best for one or two couples - you'll flip a coin to see who gets the upstairs bedroom, with views to Japan and pop-up LED HDDVR TV. Clear glass skylights over every bed, for the stars. Air bed on the deck. Very green: double paned, tinted Pella windows and doors, radiant in- floor heating, seven layers of insulation.
WE LOVE DOGS AND HORSES, so if you have either and want to bring them, they would love it here. (Extra charge for horses.) No cats, please.
Soporific deep cushion deck furniture: 12 chairs and 2 chaise's, plus a large coffee table, and a tile- topped dining seating six. Large lower deck and another deck in back that seats four and sleeps one. All cushions are 4' deep Sunbrella, web bottoms. Large bottom cushion for slouching and napping. In silence. Or with music.
We have a great sound system, but sometimes it is better to just sit on the deck and listen: the wind in the trees, the zoom of humming birds, the distant gobble of wild turkeys, the occasional screech of a hawk or falcom, the flutter of the wings of a startled owl ...
We meet most of Forbe's Standards for a 5 Star Resort. Sorry, no room service.
If creativity is your thing, if you thrive on originality and the unusual, this is your place. Finished building in April, 2010. We have lots of whimsy mixed in with fine art and sculpture; a kind of a whacky elegance. 'Far from the madding crowd's ignoble strife....' (Thomas Gray)
We call it Moose Lodge as a play on words, for our lovable hound, Moose. But this is deinitely not a men's fraternal organization.
Please note that the words 'stunning', 'breathtaking' 'awesome' and 'spectacular' were never used in the narrative above. Those words have been co-opted by the realtors.
'On this majestic set of battlements - watched over by eagles, suspended so far above the ocean that even the barks of sea lions are muted- who wouldn't feel safe? At this height, almost the only sound is the wind in the redwoods and Big Sur looks rugged and unscalable. I have never seen another place in the world like it. Its ridges and promontories inspire mingled feelings of peace and power and health... simply to exist here is to feel purified.' Paul Theroux, Bon Appetit, March, 1994

Count the dewdrops on a blade of grass. Or, watch the breeze blow your list of things-to-do away. (Thanks, Greg Brown) This is where you leave the craziness behind. You can get lost in a book, music, TV or each other, with no distractions or demands. If you have to get out, there are elegant, modest and funky restaurants within a few miles. Or you can drive to Pebble Beach for golf, or Carmel for shopping. But, really, why did you come here? Isn't this your escape? This can be your sanctuary; safe, quiet and sensual. And often fun. You are not likely to ever forget your visit here. Many guests never drive their car while they are visiting. Read our reviews.
