One of California's few inns on the National Register of Historic Places! Now Reduced but still offered with COMPETITIVE BANK-FINANCING!
A LUXURY Wine Country Inn & Day Spa commanding the gateway to California’s celebrated Wine Trail – and ideally situated within one of Monterey Peninsula’s delightful “sunbelts” --, the elegant Hiram Corey Mansion was built in 1891 as the main residence of the Corey family who owned the 8,444, fertile riverside acreage known as Rancho Las Palmas. More recently, in 1978, the landmark was added to The National Register of Historic Places.
After year 2000, the magnificent four storey, 7,414 square foot Queen Anne Victorian became carefully and intelligently restored by experienced hospitality professionals before it opened as Chateau Coralini Retreat and Spa. The European-style hospitality property boasts nine oversized guest suites, state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, various conference, dining and business meeting rooms, full wine cellar designed for lavish entertaining and generous, separate entry owners’ quarters -- all within the main residence. Commercial elevators today serve the Mansion's four storeys, and a rear ramped entry now adds important handicap access and conveniece.
Detached period-style structures also found within the fully-gated, 1.59 acre parcel include an upscale day spa/salon, charming Princess Anne children’s playhouse, hidden garden shed and special events gazebo with its own separate gated entry. Towering ancient shade trees dominate the well-manicured verdant lawns that, along the west, are framed by tall, protected forests of dense evergreens. Over two dozen, off-street, “marked” guest parking spaces are grouped and carefully interspersed within the expansive, gated grounds.
Interior amenities exude elegance, comfort and serviceability. All bathrooms, including those found in the owners’ quarters, sport the latest in high-end fixtures, jet tubs, walk-in showers and TOTO water-conserving commodes. Each guest suite offers its own individual climate control panel and flat screen while many provide a sunny, writing desk placed within a private bay window alcove. Regulation sprinklers and smoke detectors are installed throughout.
Yet, original period architectural details, such as turrets, decorative exterior siding, bay windows, fireplaces, door frames remain respectfully in place; wonderfully wavy window glass panes – always hallmarks of historic architectural integrity -- encased by original wood sash frames and “balances” also remain carefully preserved within the famed refuge.
Today’s Hiram Corey Mansion offers the best of both worlds -- past historic charm and luxurious ambience of a rich, by-gone era combined with contemporary comfort and essential guest conveniences.
This important landmark further benefits from an ideal year-round temperate climate and perfect proximity to top Monterey "Wine Trail" vintners, world-class golf at Pebble Beach, celebrated Carmel-by-the-Sea shopping / dining, internationally-recognized Silicon Valley corporate headquarters and, of course, the entire San Francisco Bay Area. Chateau Coralini's location provides guests with a direct 25 minute drive to Carmel and Monterey Bay; easily accessed from US-101, California’s major North / South corridor, guests enjoy convenient proximity to both Silicon Valley (1.5 hour drive) and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge (2 hour drive).
