My husband and I stayed in one of the suites with a kitchen for our anniversary. The innkeeper was nice and welcoming when we arrived. The room was very pretty and clean. The proximity to Ocean Ave. and a small grocery store was nice. And the flowers and landscaping around the inn was charming.

Best we have stayed in Carmel

We stayed for our 40th anniversary, we are local. Loved being able to walk to the beach and the restaurants. Liked the jacuzzi, fireplace, and big bed. Staff was very nice.

Surprised by the great service

We enjoyed the delivery of our breakfast especially since batting a quick bite somewhere in Carmel is not easy to find ..also appreciated staffs quick response to our needs ...a portable fan, turning off the noisy fan in our bathroom, making reservations for dinner...service was very friendly.

Relaxing and renewing

We were refreshed and ready to start back to work again. We were celebrating 25 years of marriage with our teenage son. We were able to have our coffee and read on the patio while our son slept in. Then we went to the deli and watched the suset on the beach. These are moments we will never get back.
