The Cliff House
Feel as though you’re floating through the air at The Cliff House —
high atop the cliffs of Big Sur and 1,200ft above the Pacific Ocean, the freestanding structure has a deck suspended over the cliffs and offers unbelievable views, which can also be enjoyed from your glass-walled bedroom or in the deck’s hot tub. To further connect with the natural surroundings, enjoy morning yoga, nature hikes or a tour through the property’s on-site organic vegetable garden. Star gazing on the Sierra Mar deck is a must — Post Ranch Inn has one of the largest hotel telescopes in the US, and Big Sur offers some of the clearest atmospheric conditions for optimum viewing of the stars, nebulas and even the rings of Saturn.
