Have you long held a special place in your heart for this rustic charmer, which has been a Big Sur landmark for over four decades? Then you know it took several months off following the Highway 1 closure to undergo a major renovation, a deep refresh that would bring a host of fresh additions to the expansive property.
The reopening date was Friday, Oct. 20, just a week after the unveiling of the new Pfeiffer Canyon Bridge, which means cars can once again enter the area of the resort and its neighbors from points to the north. Returning and new guests will find well-appointed, nature-toned rooms at Ventana Big Sur, an "expanded" terrace at The Sur House restaurant, a "re-imagined" Social House, and the just-introduced Redwood Canyon Glampsites, "bringing a luxury camping experience to the resort's 20-acre redwood-canopied forest."
