Big Sur – Deetjen’s Big Sur Inn




This was probably the coolest place I’ve ever stayed. Thanks Mom and Dad for the suggestion. The rooms don’t have locks on the doors – the best you can do is a hook-and-eye closure at night. But that’s cool. We left all our shit in our room and didn’t sweat it. If you look beyond the lamp and curtains of the room, you see trees. The final picture shows the trees down at ground level. Our room was built into the side of a hill, and – I shit you not – you could feel the room slant down toward this little creek. Especially in the shower. I kept waiting for the shower stall to fall off the building and land in the creek, me naked, soapy and screaming inside. That’s not nearly as sexy as it sounds.
