“Ditto to Mike S Review”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

The review by Mike S dated 7/30/13 says it all. We stayed 5 nights, July 21-26, and loved it. We don't like bed and breakfasts because we like our privacy. The Inn gave you the best of both worlds. So relaxing and enjoyable. We will definitely be back! Thanks to Mary and Joe for such great service.

Room Tip: Room #1 is the largest. Rooms 7 and 10 have fireplaces.

The moment we walked in the front door and were greeted, we knew we were in for a uniquely pleasant B&B experience. Arriving hours before our check-in, we were warmly welcomed, given an informative tour and settled into our room. The comfort and cleanliness of Carmel Cove Inn is exceptional compared with other B&Bs, but our stay only began with that realization. The offerings provided by the Inn for both indoor and outdoor relaxation and recreation are sublime! From tennis, boating, bicycling, and fishing (with all equipment provided by the Inn, including bait for fishing!), to billiards, chess, numerous other board games, and a diverse collection of DVDs to watch on a big screen in the common room or take to your own room; there is always something fun to do outside and in. Even winter activities are available with cross-country skis and snow shoes provided by the Inn. Rainey days are no hinderance to having a great time here. The dining room where breakfast is served is bright and cheerful. The breakfasts were delicious and served with perfect gourmet presentation. There is always tea, coffee, and hot chocolate available via a Keurig machine, along with microwavable popcorn. Sodas, beer, and wine are available at all times in the common room, and complimented by the hors devours served at 6:00pm, a fresh sweet treat and port wine served at 8:00pm, and a campfire for the guests to relax around, beginning at 9:00pm, with all the ingredients to make s'mores or just roast marshmallows....a perfect time to meet other guests and enjoy good companionship around the oldest social venue known to man....the campfire! We tip our hats and offer a bow of thanks to Mary and Joe, who not only work hard to provide this wonderful experience, but who obviously pour their hearts and souls into this Inn, which is seamlessly transferred to the joy experienced by their guests! This was perhaps the most pleasant and delightful B&B experience we have ever had. We plan to return again and again. Because of our experience this past weekend, I have to change one word in the travelers lexicon. That word is "Getaway". "Getaway" is everything you leave behind when you come to the Carmel Cove Inn and in no way describes the Inn itself. This Inn can only accurately be described as, and called, a wonderful "Go-To". And when we next have need to "Getaway", we know right where to "Go-To!

We booked a quick last minute getaway here based on what Carmel Cove Inn had to offer and it's positive reviews. It did not disappoint. It's wonderfully placed near a quiet cove but close to many area attractions. We really enjoyed all of the amenities offered especially the tennis court, paddleboat, canoes, and also the nightly bonfire with smores. The breakfast each morning was tasty and generous. Thank you Mary and Joe for such a wonderful stay! We'll be back to see you!

This is a wonderful little B&B, that we enjoyed very much. The history is so interesting, it's a restored monastery, with much charm. The service is wonderful, and the food is great. You're served in a nice breakfast area in the morning, and hors d'oeuvres are served each night with wine at 6pm. in the common room. That room has a large screen tv, dvd's available to watch there or in your room and a pool table. At 9pm each night a fire is lit in the backyard fire pit for guests interested, complete with s'mores. The area is beautiful and peaceful, with much to do. Lots of information is at the Inn for boating, horseback riding, hiking, etc. The Inn offers (free) canoeing, paddle boating and bike riding. We were celebrating our anniversary, and when we arrived, there was an ice bucket with champagne and strawberries with a congratulatory note.

Room Tip: Some rooms have private balconies, some have fireplaces.

My husband and I spent a long weekend here for our anniversary. The room was comfortable and beautiful, we got one with a jacuzzi tub! plus there was a bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting in our room when we arrived. The breakfast everyday was different and delicious. There is lots to do in the area, we spent a lot of time hiking in the many state parks. We also enjoyed borrowing the canoe and tennis stuff from the inn's activity barn, the pool table in the awesome great room and movie selection. We will definitely return to this unique B&B.

Spent the weekend with my sister, from Maryland. We both had a great time and would not hesitate to return again. Mary and her son the CHEF were very helpful with directions and any of our needs. The breakfast was one of the best I have ever had at a B&B. The room was very clean and the beds were so comfy, you hate to get out of it. We toured the area and enjoyed the snacks and beverages provided and the great campfire, with smores for all. I can't say enough for this fine B&B. Can't wait to return!!!!!!
