We visited this wonderful paradise again over Thanksgiving 2013. We stayed at LGI several years before and stayed in Friar Tuck and had one of the best vacation experiences ever (our girls especially loved the Inn's ambassador, Buddy the Cat).However, this time we contacted Betsy to find out whether we could have a very short wedding ceremony in the gardens with just me, my partner of 14 years, our two young daughters, the minister and photographer. They were so accommodating and thoughtful it made our special day even better than we could have expected. The cottage was as comfy and warm as we remembered. Our incoming flight was delayed by almost 8 hours, so we let Betsy know that we would be checking in quite late. When we finally arrived (approximately 10 pm with grumpy 7 and 8 year olds) - we found a plate of cheeses, cold cuts, crackers and a bottle of red and white wine waiting for us. I doubt you would find this level of attention at many other places in Carmel. Breakfast was superb every morning and promptly delivered at the time requested, and not at all as described in other reviews here. If you are looking for pancakes, bacon and eggs as part of your stay - you should look at staying at a chain hotel or somewhere else. Even in winter, the English gardens were incredible. We absolutely love this place and cannot thank them enough for making our stay so special.
