About Tor House, Carmel-by-the-sea

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 - Write a Review

  • 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.
