This charming inn has 5 stand alone cottages. The bedding was so so soft and everything was extremely clean. The gardens were in full bloom. The continental breakfast was delicious and it is delivered to your room. It is dog friendly. I must say I usually do not like staying in dog friendly establishments, but this was different. You wouldn't... More

My husband and I so enjoyed our time at Lincoln Green. It was beyond our expectations. We loved everything about this stay. I wish we could have stayed longer, but will next time. Can't wait to come back! We appreciate Betsy and Auria.

This place is a real gem! When we saw the pictures online we thought they were too good to be true. Wrong. The pictures don't begin to show how quaint and beautiful the gardens are. We stayed in the Maid Marion and it was very cozy and comfortable. Everything we needed for the week. The breakfast served every morning was... More

We traveled with our Siberian Husky and had a great time at the Lincoln Green Inn. It was a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. I loved the decor in the living room, the roomy bedroom and the nice little kitchen. The inn provides a checklist each afternoon to pick your breakfast items for the next morning. Although you don't... More

We stayed in the Friar Tuck cottage. Everything about it was comfortable, relaxing and rejuvenating. Very well-maintained and "grromed", everything about it. This stay was with a teen daughter, so the separate bedroom and living-room with pull-out sofa was appreciated. The bonus was that this little cottage felt quite spacious inside with a nearly full-sized kitchen and very ample living... More

Great place to stay just 1.2 miles from Carmel town center. Great walking nearby along scenic trail an ~1.2 mile walk of CA coastline beauty. Carmel is a great place, great art shops, restaurants and boutique shops, no chains for the most part! Mission Ranch Inn is less than 1/4 mile away for a nice bar and a good restaurant.... More

Spent a long weekend at the Lincoln Green earlier this year, and it was absolutely beautiful. My husband and I were traveling to the Bay Area for work, and so we detoured in Carmel for the weekend with our toddler and my aunt for a mini-vacation. The location is walking distance to the beach, but it's best to drive into... More

I go to Carmel at least once a year, sometimes twice. There is nothing comparable to Lincoln Green's cottages. Location is good for a short walk to the beach and to the Mission Ranch Restaurant & piano bar. It's also close to Ocean Drive for shopping, art galleries and restaurants. The cottages are furnished so comfortably, with luxurious bedding; and... More

My husband took me to Carmel for a birthday weekend and we stayed for the first time At Lincoln Green Inn. At first they had said they were booked up, but then offered the little cottage that is the owner's place but was available that weekend. We said "yes"! after seeing the pictures in a "secret" place on their website... More

This 5 cottage enclave is situated just south of town, steps from the beach and a ten minute walk to the heart of Carmel (and a little uphill). Everything was perfect, a simple breakfast of your choice, wine and cheese in the afternoon, the softest linens and beds ever. These are truly picture perfect Carmel cottages, not something that looks... More
