Treebones Resort, Big Sur, California
877/424-4787 or treebonesresort.com
Nestled between Los Padres National Forest and the Pacific Ocean, this getaway remains true to the region’s hippie roots. The comfortable yurts include queen-size beds, pine flooring, and decks overlooking the coast. Guests can hike through redwood forests, kayak in the marine sanctuary, or indulge in an in-yurt massage.
Eco cred: Treebones heats its pool, hot tub, and common areas with a clean–burning generator.
Insider’s tip: Is a yurt too tame for you? Spend the night up a tree in an eco-nest, a bed of woven wood, bird’s nest style.
