Big Sur Redwoods Weekend

Welcome to one of the world’s most unforgettable stretches of coastline. This roughly 90-mile-long stretch of redwood- and fog-trimmed waterfront between Carmel-by-the-Sea and Hearst Castle draws you in with a magic allure that is almost palpable. This is, quite simply, a place you want to be—redwoods, sea, and sky.

And what better way to experience the natural beauty of Big Sur than with lodging in a private ranch home on 100 acres located on Pfeiffer Point. This three bedroom, one bath home features dramatic views, a Japanese soaking tub and steam shower, a full kitchen, and dining/living room area. On the grounds, enjoy the organic garden, orchard, and avocado grove and the many trails that meander through redwoods, live oaks, and along the coastal cliffs.

Your weekend also includes: a welcome champagne cocktail reception in a private redwood grove featuring a very special fairy circle, lunch at Nepenthe, the cliff-topping restaurant with views that stretch down the coast, and dinner at Post Ranch Inn’s Sierra Mar, winner of Wine Spectator’s prestigious Grand Award.

All in all, this pioneering weekend will leave you in awe, with a deeper understanding and appreciation for the unique redwood ecosystem.


  • Package for up to 8 people; two nights
  • Date: Summer 2019 on a mutually agreed upon date.

Your Epic Redwood Adventure:
Exploring the North Coast and Smith River with Sam Hodder

Your Epic Redwood Adventure begins on a private Gulfstream jet whisking you in style to the home of the largest trees in the world. After the short flight from the Oakland Airport to Crescent City, you and eleven of your guests will be transported to The Historic Requa Inn located at the mouth of the Klamath River. An afternoon hike and welcome dinner set the stage for your adventure the next day.

In the morning, your group will experience firsthand the magic of Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park – the northernmost redwood park with 10,000 acres of primeval redwood groves bisected by the last major free flowing river in California, the Smith River. With redwood canopy scientists as your guides, you will hike the iconic Boy Scout Trail. After a day of exploration, it’s back to the Requa Inn to relax and enjoy dinner and conversation with the group.

The next morning it’s off to the turquoise waters of the Smith River. Meandering down the first mile of the river, watch the forest slowly transition from rocky serpentine soils to old-growth redwoods. Breaking from paddling, you take a fantastic half-mile hike to Stout Grove, dubbed “the world’s most scenic stand of redwoods.”

Back on the river, its lunch at the Jed Smith campground. You’ll relax on a sunny beach and enjoy an organic picnic before finishing the day with some whitewater fun, on a stretch of rapids punctuated with beautiful pools for swimming.

After a day on the water, return to Crescent City where your jet awaits to whisk you back home.


  • Package for 12 people; two nights
  • Dates: April – June 2019
  • Gulfstream Jet hosted by Don Campbell
