From open-air tropical bungalows to luxe tree houses, let these idyllic hideaways decrease your carbon footprint as they expand your horizons
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.
