Despite the renovations taking place, this is a wonderful place to escape to. The landscape is incredible. There were a lot of surprises here. The food, the charming homes. Everything is clean and modern, but it has this sort of country charm where you feel like you are taken back to a time where time wasn't so important. Getting from A to Z in the least amount of time doesn't matter here. No matter where you go, you have arrived. Its a different world than the fast-paced life we have almost everywhere else in the developed world.
The golf course proved to be one of the most challenging, but for a novice golfer like myself, not impossibly difficult. Its beautiful...the slopes, ridges, forests and rivers make this one certainly one of the most beautiful that I have ever seen...even when compared to one of its neighbors, Pebble Beach. Its a bit of a drive out of Carmel (about 10 minutes), but its worth it...I would stay here again in a heartbeat...In fact I will...If I don't buy one of the stunning houses on the Summit - just above the resort.
