My husband and I recently stayed at the Lamp Lighter Inn during the Big Sur Marathon weekend. The Lamp Lighter Inn is situated in the town of Carmel, only a couple of blocks from the ocean, restaurants, and shops. Once we arrived, we didn't need to drive anywhere in town. Our room was cozy and comfortable and tastefully decorated. The in-room microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker (supplied with complimentary basket of coffee supplies, hot cocoa, and tea) gave us the option for a quick snack or meal. The individual cottages of the Inn surround a beautiful garden with multiple seating areas and fire pit. In the mornings and evenings, a number of guests gathered to sit around the fire, read, and talk. And the staff? They are friendly, personable, and accommodating! Anytime we had a question, they went out of their way to not only provide us with information, but also with coupons to use at area businesses. Morning breakfast of cereal, bagels, toast, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, fresh fruit and coffee as well as afternoon hors d'oeuvres, all a part of the lodging package, made our stay an excellent value! To top off our experience, the owner of the Lamp Lighter Inn, arranged for one of the keynote speakers, at the Big Sur Marathon Expo, to stop by the Inn to visit with the guests. We can't say enough positive things about the Lamp Lighter Inn; it's the perfect place to stay!
