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

We stayed in the Little John cottage in February 2014. It was absolutely wonderful! The bed is so comfy, I'm trying to figure out how to duplicate it at home! The private patio and kitchen are so nice to have. Breakfast delivered was great, and I loved the scones. It is an absolutely beautiful, private, romantic location. Perfect. I highly... More

Last year we decided to splurge and stay at the Lincoln Green Inn in Carmel for our 20th anniversary even though it costs more than twice as much as our usual very nice motel lodging options in Pacific Grove, Monterey and Carmel. The cottage, Mail Marion, was so charming. The service was great, And the location simply cannot be beat... More

We visited this wonderful paradise again over Thanksgiving 2013. We stayed at LGI several years before and stayed in Friar Tuck and had one of the best vacation experiences ever (our girls especially loved the Inn's ambassador, Buddy the Cat).However, this time we contacted Betsy to find out whether we could have a very short wedding ceremony in the gardens...

Simply Perfect is the best way to describe the Enchanting hideaway called Lincoln Green Inn. We enjoyed a much needed break from the world and found it to be just what we wished for. With Betsy at the helm providing everything and more, to the subtle knock at the door in the morning with warm croissants, to the view of... More

My husband and I have stayed at the Lincoln Green Inn twice (May/June 2012 and August 2013): both were multi-night stays. We initially chose the property because it is pet friendly and each cottage has a full kitchen, but we returned (and will again soon) because the setting is magical! We have stayed at more than a half dozen Carmel... More

Wonderful place, perfect location. Chalet was clean, tidy and cozy, a magic atmosphere very close to the beach. Owner was very kind and the garden was full of hummingbirds. Breakfast was very good, coffee was excellent as well as the rest of the food. Privacy was at the top in that place.

I had the pleasure of staying in the Friar Tuck cottage with my pup. I was a little nervous after reading all the glowing reviews, but I can wholeheartedly confirm that the Inn is an absolute delight! Our cottage was roomy, quiet and extremely clean. The towels were fluffy, the linens soft, the bed a dream. The kitchen was stocked... More
