Luxurious off-grid glamping in Big Sur

The Treebones Resort in Big Sur, California, offers 16 yurts with wood floors, queen beds and hot and cold running water (which certainly count as glamping) as well as a number of bring-your-own-tent campsites (which probably don’t, but still have great Pacific Ocean views). Their showpiece, though, is the 500-square-foot Autonomous Tent, which is glamping on steroids. Sitting off by itself in majestic seclusion, it boasts a king bed, leather furniture, gas fireplace and its own en suite bathroom with a claw foot shower. True to its name, the metal-framed tent is completely off grid, with water from an on-site source, solar panels for power, and a composting toilet. An attached deck and nearby fire pit let guests extend outdoor evenings from spectacular sunsets through to late-night stargazing. Double occupancy is $495 weekdays, $594 Friday/Saturday, with a two-night minimum stay.
