About Jewel In The Forest

We are conveniently located halfway between Carmel & Big Sur and just thirty minutes from Monterey, California. You will surely enjoy a spectacular drive along the breathtaking Coast Hwy 1 and then onto a serene and magical forest road to arrive at our unique property nestled among the redwoods.

The Jewel In The Forest was originally built in 1920’s by a man named Sherwin Shayne. He was a civil rights lawyer and was notorious for his lavish parties. Then later in the 70’s the property was used by U.C. Berkely for researchers of LSD and its healing properties. It is now owned by a spirit artist named Sofanya who has since turned it into a spiritual retreat center for all tp enjoy its unique history and enchantment.

Stay in a lovely forest dwelling with all the amenities you’ll need to enjoy and relax…full kitchen, comfy beds, sitting areas and so much more.

This is truly a getaway where you can relax and find inspiration and creativity, express yourself through painting, poetry, music, dance & meditation.  

Carabella’s Theatre is available for yoga, performance, gatherings.  We offer art supplies in each home and art classes are available at your request and check with Sofanya for upcoming weekend art retreats or classes.

We have plenty of sun and wonderful weather most of the year.  Located close to amazing local hiking, shopping and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. The area hosts many special events all year. Of course you may just want to relax and feel your connection to nature. 

Whether you are bathing in the sunken tub in the romantic master bedroom of the Dome, relaxing in the garden at The “Calla Lilly” Cottage or sunbathing in the secret garden of “Jasmine” you will experience an unforgettable getaway in our beautiful forest oasis.


This retreat is hosted in an intimate setting of Big Sur where the magical forest meets the tranquil sea. Be enveloped in the mystical cabins in the woods. With 5 dwellings and 10 beds, each cabin is beautifully ecliptic to harness the energy and spirit of enchantment. Then after a fun-filled day of spirit work, gather on around the court yard fire pit and enjoy a cup of tea and a day of reflection.
