Yurts are usually found on the vast steppes of Mongolia. But Treebones Resort offers all-yurt accommodations perched high above the Pacific in California’s own Big Sur—though the Mongols wouldn’t recognize the polished pine floors, queen-sized beds, and cozy quilts to keep you warm. All yurts feature real barbecue grills and wooden decks where you can watch the ocean churn below. If you’re inspired to explore, Treebones’ homemade guidebook offers detailed information on nearby hikes and beach walks. A favorite pastime is jade hunting along Jade Cove. The stretch of beaches from Willow Creek to Sand Dollar Beach is prime for collecting the green stones. Jade or no jade, the setting itself is a gem.

Treebones Resort, 71895 Highway 1, Big Sur; 877-4 BIG SUR. Yurts start at $129 for two guests; minimum two-night stay on weekends.
