Deciding which Big Sur lodging to feature on this web page was near impossible, each is special in its own distinctive way. I wanted to present accommodations that would be unique and yet typically exemplify “Big Sur”. So to make the selection I first had to define “Big Sur”. To me Big Sur is the precarious struggle between the makes of man and nature that is scenic Pacific Coast Highway 1 along the beautiful rugged California coast between Monterey and San Simeon that permeates with the hardy resilient pioneer spirit of those that originally settled and continue to survive and thrive there. “Big Sur” is also the tranquil serenity and peace of the thick redwood forests there. So I decided on two resorts to feature from Big Sur; one in the Big Sur River Valley Redwood Forests and one perched precariously on the rugged Big Sur California coastline; the Big Sur Lodge which will be featured next and the Ragged Point Inn and Resort which is the Big Sur lodging featured on this page.
After I had made the selection a began thinking about how “Big Sur” was also the wild untamed backcountry, the Ventana Wilderness; there are no Big Sur lodgings in the wilderness but there is one just on the other side, the Hearst Hacienda Guest Lodge but I decided to save that to feature at a much later date.

I was raised on this beautiful majestic Central California Coast and have long had a love affaire with the the Ragged Point Inn, Pacific Coast Highway 1 and the Big Sur Pacific Coast; let me be your guide...

A wonderful place to stay at the southern end of the scenic Big Sur Pacific Coast Highway; Ragged Point is often called the Gateway to Big Sur

2012/13 Travel Advisory: Food prices are up which affects the already expensive Big Sur restaurant menu prices too, more than ever it’s a great time to think about having a picnic at Ragged Point; remember all services are sparse and expensive in the Ragged Point area so you should try and remember to fill up your gas tank before you go but if you get to the Ragged Point Inn low on fuel you can buy your gas there, they have everything you need; the Ragged Point Inn and Resort is an all inclusive resort they can provide every vacation need including the gas. Layering your clothing is the best dress to deal with quick changing weather of the Big Sur Coast and it is always a good idea to check the highway (1-800.427.7623) and weather conditions before you go. Take your time and be careful, it is 85 twisty beautiful scenic miles to Monterey but what a wonderful drive.

After you finish eating walk it off on one of Ragged Points many trails that lead through beautiful ornamental gardens with breathtaking Pacific Ocean California Coastal Views.
