One day, if I go to heaven, I’ll look around and say: ‘It ain’t bad, but it ain’t Wildcat Hill.’

Nestled up behind the home where Edward Weston lived and worked for more than 20 years, Bodie House is a unique oasis on the central coast of California. Whether you visit for a weekend or a week, your stay with us on Wildcat Hill is sure to rejuvenate your creative spirit and allow you to getaway from the stresses of everyday life.

Bodie House is located on California's infamous Highway 1 between the charming coastal village, Carmel-by-the-Sea, and Big Sur, known for its seaside cliffs and views of the often-misty coastline. Bodie House's walls are decorated with fine art photography and the sitting room is filled with books that will make it easy for you to relax and immerse yourself in the Weston family's photographic legacy.

Equipped with all the creature comforts of your own home, this wonderful cottage has a beautiful sitting room looking out on the greenery and woods of Wildcat Hill, one bedroom with a queen sized bed, a private bathroom with a shower, and a small kitchenette which is set up for light meals. It still has all the conveniences you will need to make your stay comfortable, a refrigerator, microwave, toaster and a coffee maker. We have wireless internet available for our guests as cell-phone reception can be spotty. Bodie House accommodates two people. We do not allow children or pets at this time.
