Tor House - Review

Constructed by Robinson Jeffers, a poet builder from the 1920s, the Tor House was initially a dream house for him and his family. Entirely built by himself, the Tor House is a stark example of how far one can go to achieve his dreams. Jeffers made use of wooden planks to pull up the stones and place them perfectly. Almost 80 years after this, the house is converted into a museum and is a prominent attraction in Carmel by the Sea. The museum also displays Jeffers’ poetries as well. Overall, a great place to explore the architectural and artistic marvel.

Tor House, Carmel-by-the-sea Reviews

  • The guy on the front office was extremely rude.We were running a little late and called ahead to make sure they can accommodate us..but when we got to the front ,the guy simply said no and left..don’t expect professionalism from this place ..never coming back

  • This place feels like coming home to me. The docent tour was interesting and informative and the house and location are incredible.

  • Stunning and beautifully preserved home of famed poet Robinson Jeffers. It's open for tours on most weekends. No photos inside.

  • An amazing guided tour. We learned more about the poet and his family. It is definitely worth visiting and seeing this great architecture.

  • Sarah Rubin was our Docent, and she went above and beyond--she was friendly, outgoing, engaging, knowledgeable and gave everyone in our group a rich experience of Roberson and Una Jeffers' home. Her appreciation of Jeffers' poetry, as well as the history of the house and the town of Carmel-by the-Sea was obvious and appreicated. My boyfriend ended up proposing on the top of Hawk Tower, so i don't think the experience could have been any more perfect.
