We have our hiking shoes, canteens and walking sticks ready, and it's not because we are headed to girl scout camp. We are ready to road trip to the redwoods in Big Sur to a newly remodeled and newly re-opened venue! With our extensive event industry background, we enjoy reaching out to new venues, and get a great feel for the way the venue will succeed based on our correspondence with management. We are happy to report that Jeanette, the general manager, has been extremely busy with the new opening of this gem, yet still extremely responsive and gracious in returning our emails. Always a good sign when planning events.
Big Sur is filled with majestic and ancient redwood beauties that thrive along the coast of California. Amongst these tall trees sits the recently renovated and re-opened Glen Oaks Big Sur and Big Sur Roadhouse . Glen Oaks Big Sur is located in the heart of the Big Sur Valley and is few short miles from hiking trails, boutiques, shopping and beaches. The Lord of the Rings trilogy could have been filmed in this magical setting... these towering trees are truly J.R. Tolkien-worthy.
HISTORY LESSON: The adobe motor lodge was considered modern in 1957 and 50 years later with it's new makeover, Glen Oaks Big Sur has a fresh rustic-modern and Green sensibility. The remodel was inspired by the original natural adobe walls, known for keeping the hot sun out and the warmth in. In keeping with that eco-concept, the property utilized recycled and renewable stone, Peroba wood, bamboo, resin, wool carpets and organic cotton to maintain the natural environment.
HOW WILL MY GUESTS GET HERE?: Glen Oaks Big Sur is located along highway one. The hotel office is located on the East side of highway one and the Big Sur Roadhouse is located on the West side of highway one. Monterey Airport is about 45-60 minutes north of the venue, however it is a domestic airport. The property is about 2 hours south of San Jose and 3 Hours south of San Francisco (which both have international airports), or about 6 hours north of LA along the Pacific Coast Highway.
