Rainbows and Dragons Hike Inn, Big Sur, California
Unconventional, colorful, and rustic, Rainbows and Dragons Hike Inn is made up of two unique multi-level dwellings nestled into a lush hillside garden created by the owner, a longtime Big Sur artist/carpenter/gardener/resident.
The houses (Rainbow House and Dragon house) are designed to be places where guests can truly experience the Big Sur lifestyle without commercial gloss. The surrounding environment is totally natural: spring water, ocean and sage-scented air, and amazing views above the redwood canopy filled with hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies.
The property is reached via a steep zizag trail through the redwoods, so bring good hiking shoes and be prepared to carry your personal supplies. The Dragon House is a 4-level dwelling with one bedroom, located just above the living room and kitchen. There is an additional bed available on the rooftop, which also serves as a deck. A private outdoor shower, tub, and toilet are provided. The Rainbow house is 3-levels and has 2 bedrooms, indoor bathroom with bath tub and toilet (no shower). The roof top room, which also serves as a sundeck, has a double bed for additional guests.
Amenities are simple and include variable bedding options, towels, cookware, utensils, and dishware. Each house has a kitchen with propane burner and water heater, fridge, and gas or charcoal grill (charcoal provided). For chilly nights, a wood stove (wood provided) or propane heater are available.
Located only 15 minutes from Carmel and 20 minutes from the Big Sur Valley, Rainbows and Dragons Hike Inn is the perfect place to renew and refresh in a unique and unusual paradise off the beaten track.
