The Cypress Inn is a Historic Landmark in Carmel By The Sea. A boutique hotel (my favorite kind) with 44 rooms. Built in 1929 but kept current and immaculate throughout the years. The hotel is a block or so from the main town of Carmel with all of it's quaint shops, restaruants and at the end of the street, a beautiful beach. Doris Day owns the hotel and made it a doggie friendly accomodation when she became the owner. Well behaved dogs are welcome but must be kept on leash.
There are several common areas, the "living room" has a open beamed ceiling and a fireplace with lots of cozy couches and oversized chairs to relax wtih a glass of wine and read a book.
The charming courtyard is a nice area to have breakfast or luch (depending on the weather).
Terry's Restaurant and Bar is named for Doris' son and has a great selection for lunch and dinner. Local produce and seafood are used so everything is very fresh and healthy.
The rooms are not huge but are cozy with very comfortable beds, down comforters, fireplaces and a bottle of spirits in the room. Bathrooms are small but adequate. Ours had a tub with a shower.
The whole town of Carmel is upscale but yet, doggie friendly. Shopkeepers have waterbowls outside their doors and many restaurants allow dogs in the outside areas of their establishments. The beach is leash free. However, don't get the idea that dogs are funning amuck here, They are all on leash and the owners seemed to be very responsible. Shopkeepers are very friendly and it has that small town or village feel.
Treat yourself and spend a weekend in this beautiful little village by the sea.
