Deetjens Welcomes You
Deetjens Inn exists today because in 1972 Helmuth “Grandpa” Deetjens bequeathed his Big Sur home to be forever enjoyed by guests wanting to enjoy the peace, friendship, and beauty of this place. In 1990, the US Department of the Interior placed Deetjens Big Sur Inn on the National Register of Historic Places. The rustic, hand-crafted quality of the Inn and its old-world ambience recalls visitors' experience in Big Sur's early days. Currently, the Inn is operated on a not-for-profit basis by the Deetjens Big Sur Inn Preservation Foundation. When staff is available, we offer simple property tours to the public between noon and 4pm.
We invite our guests to come enjoy Big Sur's landscape of mountains, sea and sky in the timeless setting of Deetjens Inn.
