we stayed here 8 years ago and enjoyed our stay here again. The new owners are doing things to upgrade the property. It's very sweet and rustic. The breakfast is good and the staff is very nice. Wish there was a hot tub and/or outdoor fire pit, but the grounds are very pretty.

We stayed in the tiny Oak room, it was small but acceptable. The high price per night is definitely for the area. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was amazing.

Some things have changed since new ownership, but nothing that would keep us from staying there again. The Management/Staff were very courteous and friendly. The breakfast was continental style, but also included an entrée that was served to the table. The location couldn't be better. Walking distance to all shops/restaurants and also to the beach.

Nice local inn, close to everything in Carmel and region. The breakfast is outstanding and the staff very friendly. They have a shed with ice, coffee and microwave. During the day you can help yourself with coffee and cookies at the reception. The room is cozy, but bathroom needs some renovation though.

What a great little gem in Carmel. I thought I was booking a different property, but this one turned out to be fantastic, right off the beaten path and yet very close to everything. Love the little cottages and the complimentary breakfast.
