Deetjen's Big Sur Inn

Big Sur lies along what is surely one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the world. It's one hour south of Carmel and two hours north of Cambria. The wild and stunning coastline plays host to a few extraordinary hotels, including the famously fabulous and outrageously expensive Post Ranch Inn, and the Ventana Inn.

One of the most unique, special and romantic places we've every stayed is Deetjen's Big Sur Inn. It's a ramshackle property on the mountain side of the highway nestled in a forest glen. The assortment of cabins and rooms have fireplaces, cozy blanket-heavy beds, and no TVs. But it's luxurious- rates are mostly between $200-$250 a night.

The restaurant at Deetjen's is divine too.
