The Big Sur River Inn is an unforgettable vacation destination located in the heart of Big Sur. Nestled among towering redwoods along the scenic Big Sur River, the historic  Big Sur River Inn is Big Sur's first hotel and restaurant.

Founded by the region's prominent pioneering families more than seventy years ago, it is much more than just another Big Sur hotel. The Big Sur River Inn, originally the Apple Pie Inn, has been the site of fun family vacations, wedding celebrations and quiet Big Sur getaways for many generations.

Relax from the pressures of civilization on the sun-dapple deck beside the outdoor pool. Renew your spirit with great food and drink in the historic dining room overlooking the Big Sur River. Remember childhood dreams as you lie back in the soft, fragrant grass on the banks of the river.The Big Sur River Inn is steeped in romance, history and 1930's nostalgia, while our 20 rustic rooms provide modern convenience and comfort.
