The most wonderful "accidental find" of our last minute " no plans trip". What a great place!!! The people were so real and down to earth, so friendly. Rooms were unique and beautiful. The bar was authentic western and comfortable. The food was fresh and very well prepared.
It was a surprise find and a great experience. Forrest and Isa are terrific. They made me feel at home very quickly.
This is the antithesis of fake resort hotels where everyone pretends to be something they are not. I have been to Carmel and the surrounding areas many times. This is a mining town in the mountains. Surfing, over priced merchandise, and posers are in short supply here.
I shall return.
