We had a nice dinner in this amazing place that had been preserve in time, food is exceptional and the ambiance is unique. Thanks for preserving this place, hope you can keep it like this for future generations, BUT change your attitude, you are fortunate to work in such an amazing place, surrounding with so much beauty, so treat your costumers with respect and courtesy.
Price is high, this is a formal restaurant, not a road stop. Entrees prices goes from $26 to $42, but the price is right for what u get, high quality and fresh food

Room Tip: Ask for tables close to the windows, place can be a little dark inside

It is difficult not to get a tad mawkish when recalling Deetjen’s; it is unlike any other accommodation I have ever stayed in or am likely to stay in again. Built in a Scandinavian style and encircled by breath-taking scenery with a number of trails situated close by, Deetjen’s is a product of its surroundings in so much as it was mostly constructed using neighbouring redwoods. The Honeymoon Suite, which we booked, was packed full of personality and charm, exquisitely decked out and furnished, and came with an adjacent private garden; it just all amounted to something quite magical.

That Deetjen’s is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is of no tremendous surprise, you can barely escape the sense of history there and will leave feeling as though you have just stepped back in time, and to a better time at that. Certainly the first time I have felt privileged to have stayed somewhere.

My wife, 12 yr old son and I spent the night here on our trip down to Bug Sur. It is a great spot to soak up the atmosphere of the place, quiet (no TV or wifi) and spiritual with a great setting in the woods. It is run by a non profit foundation too, which just adds to the 'good vibrations' you get staying here. Room was comfortable although rustic and the breakfast was excellent.

It's a beautiful location at Big Sur a little ways away from the touristy Big Sur locale, not far from Nepenthe, which is worth visiting. Tucked away in the redwoods; it's a quaint inn. Our room, Chateau Fiasco, is a rustic room, like all of the rooms, and was charming, but it is rustic. We loved it, but it's a bit pricey for what you get. We ate dinner and breakfast at their restaurant, and the meals were great. There's a nice stop a little south around milepost 38, look for the cars. It's a hike that goes through a tunnel through the mountain to cool rocky coves.

A friend invited me to join her for a Big Sur getaway and little did I expect to be introduced to this little Big Sur gem called Deetjen! People who visit here are searching to getaway from technology and hustle-bustle, and Deetjen definitely provides that setting. There is barely any phone network connection, no wifi on the premise, and no TV to watch in your room.

You are there to unwind and to take hours to read through the amazing journals and stories that people leave behind. When you do decide to come out of your room and join civilization for a bit, try to nab a table at the restaurant for a solid meal.

There is some noise from the freeway, but it does die down in the evening and all you'll hear is the ocean waves.
