Tor House and Hawk Tower are buildings in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, home of poet Robinson Jeffers and family from 1919 to 1999.

The two structures, often referred to jointly as Tor House, are generally believed to have played a crucial role in the development of Robinson Jeffers as a poet, and have inspired many a visitor, for example, Stewart Brand, founder of the Whole Earth Catalog:

"Tor House is a poem-like masterpiece. It may express more direct intelligence per square inch than any other house in America."
