Tor House & Hawk Tower Tour

Tor House is one of the original Carmel Cottages. Built in 1918 by Robinson Jeffers out of granite boulders from the shore, this cottage and tower provided a setting for a life of simplicity, harmony and artistic creativity for Jeffers, his wife Una and their twin sons Garth and Donnan.

Tour the house, climb the tower, stroll the English-style gardens and experience the atmosphere that inspired some of America’s finest poetry.

Tours are offered Friday’s and Saturday’s only
