Our experience was simply wonderful! The owners are generous, kind, funny and a joy to talk to. The food and views accompanying the meals were impeccable. The amnemities included games, a Steinbeck library, cool antiques, snacks, liquor, a private patio and fireplace with room! Just amazing overall. We can't wait to return!!!!!!!!!

Even though it was also the most expensive it was also the best value. Why? Because it also included parking, a terrific breakfast, wine & cheese in the afternoon/evening and...

We stayed at the Inn for one evening. The staff reached out to us a week before our visit and then again on the day of our visit as we were heading north on the PCH.

This craftsman-style home awaits you, gardens entice you, rooms overlook the bay, some with fireplaces and Jacuzzis, down comforters snuggle you in, and faint sounds of sea lions bark you to sleep. Imagine awaking to hints of breakfast wafting up the stairwell, 5 o'clock wine and nibblers, cookies and milk at bedtime. Imagine...Walking to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, Fisherman Wharf or biking along 17-Mile Drive, browsing Carmel shops. Imagine...Falling into the rabbit hole and finding The Jabberwock. ... more   less
