Two nights at Deetjen's Big Sur Inn
In the early 1930's, Norwegian immigrant Helmuth Deetjen discovered the secluded beauty of Big Sur. In Carmel he met his future wife, Helen Haight - a woman with a nose for business and a sense of adventure. Together they bought several acres of land in Castro Canyon, their favorite camping spot in Big Sur. The pastoral canyon offered them the tranquility they sought. With the completion of Highway One in 1937, Deetjens Inn became a destination for travelers, artists and seekers of all kinds. Helmuth and Helen became famous for their hospitality, bringing a dash of European glamour to the local bohemian lifestyle.

What's a honeymoon registry?
Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift
meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.
Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts,
couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful
experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.
Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.
A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together.
Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a
couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences
of this journey together.
Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for
guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.
We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving
any other gift you can unwrap.
