We invite you to relax in rustic, comfortable rooms nestled among the redwoods of Castro Canyon on Highway One. The surrounding landscape offers white crested waves breaking against the cliffs, the azure blue of the Pacific and the ever changing colors of the sky.The Deetjens' settled in Big Sur in the 1930's. Almost immediately they began offering hospitality to the adventurous travelers of the brand new Highway 1. The Inn exists today because when Helmuth Deetjen died in 1972, he left the Inn to be forever enjoyed by guests wanting to experience the peace, friendship, and beauty of this place. There's a little something indescribable about a stay at Deetjens.
