Mill Creek, Big Sur, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
After extensive renovations, Big Sur Retreat Camp, near the Redwood Forests and Nacimiento Road, is opening for the 2014 season on May 1, with the season extending through October 31st.
Betty Withrow, owner and hostess, says, “I am very pleased and excited to offer this great opportunity for groups to have the most fun and transformation ever. I’ll make it as much like paradise as I can. The prettiest time of year is just beginning. Mid-May is the peak of spring.”
This beautiful retreat camp facility in Big Sur Wild Country has full support (meal options, cabin tents) for group retreats. It is set in the midst of the back-country splendor of Mill Creek on the South Coast of Big Sur, surrounded by mountains and with a splendid view of the ocean. Reached by going through the Los Padres National Forest, this private 44-acre ranch holds the promise of peaceful relaxation and the opportunity for groups to experience the wild in a nourishing and comfortable setting.
There is a 1-acre pond for swimming, fed by natural springs. The property has a redwood forest habitat in the lower elevations, while the camp meadow, at 2300 feet, has vistas of the Santa Lucia mountains of the South Coast Ridge.
Camp amenities include a kitchen, basic cooking equipment, fire pits with complimentary firewood, flushing bathroom with hot showers, a large stage for presentations or theater events.
Gas or electricity hookups may be requested. Meal service is available. Walk-in cabin tents may be rented, or groups may bring their own equipment. Located nearby in the ranch house are wi-fi connections and telephone access.
Groups of 15-30 are the ideal size. The camp may accommodate up to 80 people by special arrangement.
