ucia Lodge is an historic cliff-side resort located in the heart of the Big Sur coast.

Special notice: On August 10th, 2021 our restaurant and store were lost to fire. Our lodge, located 100 yards north, remains open.

Lucia is perched on the coast miles from any other business. Locals have frequented Lucia Lodge for mail, groceries, WiFi, and complimentary coffee for decades. The Lucia store opened in 1937, coinciding with the opening of Highway 1! The land was originally homesteaded in the 1800's by the Harlan family, and in that pioneering spirt the Harlan's plan to rebuild this vital part of the Big Sur South Coast.

In the meantime, we usually have a local Mexican food truck on site WED-SAT, although its presence is not guaranteed. The truck has organic, gluten-free, and vegetarian options. We also provide a free Grab-n-Go breakfast each morning. Dining is also available 12 miles south.

You can make a reservation here.

Ten updated cabins and rooms, family style indoor/outdoor dining, and a quaint country store await you. A gift shop within the store carries arts & crafts from local artisans.

Lucia Lodge is located adjacent to highway one in the village of Lucia, 50 miles south of Carmel, California, and 40 miles north of San Simeon / Cambria, California (home to Hearst Castle). You can make a reservation to stay in one the cliff-side cabins or ocean view rooms… stop in just for lunch or dinner, or visit the store/gift shop.

Lucia lodge is famous for its close proximity to the ocean. No other Big Sur resort gets you this close to the sea. The lodge is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the stunning views of the Big Sur coastline and the rugged Santa Lucia Mountains. The cabins are situated along a southwest facing cliff 300 feet above the Pacific Ocean which offers an unparalleled view of the Big Sur coast.

There is a large deck adjoining the restaurant where you can take in a home-cooked meal and view the whales swimming along their migration path. Or, enjoy the ocean view from inside the historic restaurant while enjoying fireside dining.

The location of Lucia is also a perfect launching point for exploring the rest of Big Sur.
