Bodie House at Wildcat Hill

Bodie House at Wildcat Hill

Come and stay in “Bodie House” at Wildcat Hill – home of the late photographer Edward Weston. Bodie house is our cozy studio, located behind our home, Edward’s original house. Charis Wilson, Edward’s last wife used it as a writing studio when she needed some private time away from Edward.

We offer the studio as a retreat for photographers and others longing to come to the central coast of California. You can stay during one of our workshops or just come for an unforgettable getaway. 

It is a great opportunity for those wanting to explore the Monterey Peninsula, Big Sur Coast and of course the famous “Point Lobos State Park”. Bring your camera, photograph the grounds, and visit this unique area surrounding the Carmel Highlands.
