Absolutely LOVE staying at the Lincoln Green Inn! This is the second time we’ve stayed there, but in a different suite. Everything was perfect! Love being so close to the beach and staying in such cozy cottage! Thank you for another great and memorable experience!!

A storybook weekend at the Lincoln Green Inn

4.6 on November 26, 2017

Our stay at the Lincoln Green Inn was a magical weekend in a beautiful community. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly and helpful manager at the front desk who had wine, cheese, and crackers set out by a beautiful fireplace on the patio outside the managers hut. He helped us to our cottage and showed us all the amenities and made sure we were comfortable. Througout the weekend we were we treated like VIPs. The one item that kept us from giving the rooms category five stars was the internet. It was too slow for practicle use and cellular coverage at the cottage did not allow for use of our mobile hot spot. The answer was to disengage from high tech and enjoy the magic of the cottage. I could go on and on about how terrific this place is, but you will have to experience it for yourselves. We will be back!

Lovely stay!

The gardens were beautiful and the cottage was extremely well designed and furnished. The staff were very friendly and made us feel at home. The breakfast offerings were quite extensive. My only suggestions would be to offer a different type of granola and to offer a few other types of bread for breakfast such as whole wheat toast and muffins.

Wonderful Stay

Great find! Clean, nestled into the neighborhood, close to the beach. Great for multiple families. We'll be going back, for sure.

Wonderful Little Gem Near River Park and Close to the Village

5 on May 12, 2017

This was the second time we stayed at Lincoln Green with out boys (now teens). We brought a cot with us for one of them and the accommodations were perfect. The lovely fireplace for the brisk evening/mornings. They were so flexible when we asked for our breakfast items the night prior because we had early morning activities. We walked to River Park and the boys ran from the waves, rolled and wrestled in the sand and climbed rocks. They got to be kids!!! Thanks for making our stay so cozy and we will definitely be back!!!

The perfect place to stay in carmel

4.8 on April 13, 2017

The Lincoln Green Inn is the perfect place to stay in Carmel. Over the years, we have stayed in over a half dozen places in Carmel and nothing compares to the Lincoln Inn. Each of the 4 cottages is a mini-house, for far less than one would pay to actually rent a house. The grounds are absolutely beautiful, the service is exemplary (thank you Justin!) and the location is perfect (amid a lovely residential area). This was out 4th time at the Lincoln Inn and it is the only place we will stay in Carmel.

Always a great stay at Lincoln Green Inn

Great little hotel and an amazing staff. Justin has always been kind and helpful, he really makes us feel comfortable and makes a great place even better.

Carmel Anniversary Weekend

4.4 on October 21, 2016

Our stay at Lincoln Green was a perfect weekend. It had been 5 years since our last visit, and it brought back great memories and made some new ones. The room, service, and grounds were excellent. We will be back at the Green soon to enjoy the beauty and charm of Carmel.
