Treebones Resort, Big Sur, California

Glamping, yurts, and human nests.  What are these things??  I’ve actually heard of the 1st two, but had to do a little research regarding the “human nest”.  You can find these unique lodging choices at Treebones Resort located off of the Pacific Coast Highway in South Big Sur, California.

Glamping:  a luxurious form of camping that combines traditional camping with upscale resort amenities.

Yurt:  tent-like circular fabric structures with wood lattice frames.

The yurts found at Treebones include plush queen beds with colorful quilts, nice bed linens, and polished pine wood floors. Each yurt has a heat source, electricity, and a hot/cold vanity sink.  You can take in the coastal views by stepping through the french doors onto the redwood deck.

If a yurt is not to your liking, you might want to try a “human  nest”.   These apparently offer some of the best views at Treebones.

Human Nests are made out of woven wood by Big Sur artist Jayson Fann.  They include a picnic table and access to water.  You climb the ladder with your own sleeping bags and pillows to lay onto the full-sized futon mattress which the resort provides. human-nest-view

There is a 2-night minimum to stay in a Human Nest and they encourage you to bring your own tent in case of rain, as the nests are not waterproof.

Another alternative is the “autonomous tent”.  This one-of-a-kind tent is located on the edge of the resort and is secluded.  It looks like a giant cocoon and has its own outdoor fire pit.
