Wonderful rustic restored buildings. Stayed in 2 separate rooms and staff moved our belongings. Rooms and beds were comfortable and staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Lovely quiet setting and the restaurant meals are delicious.

Wonderful ranch with a panoramic view of Monterey. You wake up to see sheeps grazing in the ranch with deers walking into the ranch. Truly magical....feels like you are back to be one with Nature. The rooms are very different to a typical * Star hotel with old fashioned beds and furniture's. Try to get in there before 5pm to...

My brother and sister-in-law have been coming here for years and asked us to join them. What a magical 'American' place to visit. Generous staff with an opportunity to walk among the beautiful 'Hansel and Gretel' exotic homes at Carmel by the sea. This is a beautiful resort that you can only dream about. The piano bar has all the...

What a wonderful place to stay while visiting Carmel. We stayed in the Meadowview triplex......we didn't want to leave. The room was spacious, the bed comfy, and the fireplace made it nice and cozy. The place is immaculate, and the grounds and landscaping are beautiful. A definite thumbs up.

The most beautiful setting, with gorgeous landscaping and a great romantic restaurant too. The one-way scenic drive just past the ranch to the left at the ocean is a great place to park and just walk along the ocean--the view of Point Lobos without the cost, and it's fun to look at the neat houses too. Like a mini Pacific...

We stayed at the ranch, which we do annually for our anniversary. Never disappointed in the accommodations, scenery, amenities or restaurant. The food is always top-notch, but the short rib is a particular favorite! Oh so tender! The lounge is cozy yet vibrant, and if you're lucky you may just catch a glimpse of Clint Eastwood! Can't wait to go...

My husband and I love this hotel for its simplistic elegance. This is our favorite hotel that is a no pool, no resort, not pressure to do anything but enjoy nature, the surrounding seaside and upscale neighborhood. The restaurant dining experience is our all time favorite ever!!

We had a wonderful dinner at this lovely restaurant and the food and service were superb! The atmosphere was homey with an upscale feeling including the piano bar. The outside eating area is well heated and overlooks the ocean. Awesome place for dinner!
