We Are Open Now!
Good News For Those Considering a Visit to the Hermitage!
Access from the north (via Monterey and points beyond) and the south is now easily available via Highway 1 from both directions.
Many GPS mapping programs do not work properly on this remote coast, and may not give accurate locations or directions. Additionally, there is no cell phone service on the coast of Big Sur, so be sure to write down directions carefully before you leave for your trip here.
If you are coming from the north and can find Lucia Lodge, which is right on Highway 1 about one-half mile north of our driveway, you can stop to ask for directions or just begin looking for our driveway entrance on the left – it is marked clearly with signs.
If coming from the south, our driveway is on your right, clearly marked with signs. If you get to Lucia Lodge, you’ve passed us; turn around and go back one-half mile.
