River Inn Big Sur

Old town charm, new exciting Nature adventure discovery. This is what to me describes River Inn Big Sur.

The secret to its magic is to come closer and just be lost in the moments that follows.

Few images pop up in our Google search every time we search for places to stay in Big Sur but it never captured our curiosity until the day we decided to stop by to check what it is that draws travelers here. Lo and behold, we were missing something magical for so long.

Anyhow, never too late to dip our feet in cold river water while drinking apple cider and margarita.

How it feels? Like placing our feet in a bucket of ice water.

Nature so intimate it’s like we’re in a romantic lovebirds spell sipping sweet love potions.

Chill and chilled.

So, next bucket list, stay over night or two. We want to dip our feet in that magical refreshing river water just a bit longer. We did however get to take home a bit of it’s magic, and it made us happy…very happy.

Oops…almost! Slippery river bed and alcohol, not a safe mix but they are so fun together.

Let Nature surprise you this weekend.

Definitely going back for more.

Be curious. Be creative. Give in to the magic, relax and let go.

    This spot looks so sweeeeeeeeet! I’m gonna have to take a drive up. We’ve had a spot like this down here a sweet hideaway hiking. This one looks so great! A Nature getaway usually gives us a great therapy session to refresh and get good vibes. Thanks for posting!


  3. This looks like such an incredibly charming place to stay. Sounds so relaxing and refreshing to kick up your feet, sip a glass of apple cider and margarita, and just admire the views and sounds of the river.

    Such wonderful photos. Being in nature, or even viewing scenes of nature, reduces anger, fear, and stress and increases pleasant feelings. Exposure to nature not only makes you feel better emotionally, it contributes to your physical wellbeing, reducing blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, and the production of stress hormones. With sunshine and warmer weather returning to Ireland, we are spending every waking minute outdoors. I hope all is well with you and your family. Wishing you a happy week ahead 🙂 Aiva


    • Thanks Aiva. Exactly what I tell my wife every time she asked me , “Nature and beaches…again?” It’s like life for me, to heal and feel whole, even in moments for a few hours. After a long stressful work week, it’s a refuge and a dear therapeutic friend. 🙏

    That looks like absolute heaven. The glass of apple cider and margarita looks so refreshing. And I can feel the cold water on my eye just looking at that very inviting scene of the wooden chairs on the shallow creek. Looks like a slice of heaven you and your family got to enjoy! Very glad for you.


    • It was. Big Sur and Carmel Valley has been our happiest place on Earth COVID Era. Used to be Disney. If I have millions, my dream is to live in Carmel Valley just steps away to nature and away from city life. Free to dream.🙏 Thank you.

        Always dream and it may very well happen. And hope it happens! 😊 And Disney will be reopened and one day you’ll be able to go back safely and worry Fred again! I’m still thinking about the Apple cider margarita by the way!
