The room was cute, small. (#5) and a little weird with a folding door in the toilet instead of a solid one..other than that The grounds... More

This is a very cute bed and breakfast. Small, i believe only seven rooms, so you get very good attention. Dog friendly. I would call it rustic, but it was very comfortable. Super close to the main shopping/dining areas, and about 5-6 blocks from the beach. We brought our bikes and rode around the coast, visited the Mission (nice place,... More

This quaint courtyard assemblage of half-timbered units dates back to the late '20s, but the accommodations have been updated where it counts -- the plumbing and the quality of the bed! Parking can be a challenge, but guests are equipped with overnight passes to allow parking in resident-only spaces overnight. The courtyard pond and gazebo are a little tattered, but... More

It is, really charming. It made our stay in Carmel to be awesome. I went with my wife and slept there for 3 nights. A very reasonable breakfast comes in the room every morning. Dawn, one of the owners and innkeepers, is very helpful and friendly. We arrived after the office had closed and she left our key there, with... More

Charming little cottage style rooms, very friendly front desk and super pet friendly. Breakfast served in the morning was delish and fresh. Room we stayed in was small, but we don't need much space. Great location, easy walk to the beach, shops and restaurants but far enough off Ocean Ave that it was very quiet. One criticism, it was very... More

Stayed one night and wished it had been more. Nice little B & B one block from downtown and about 1/2 mile from the beach. Breakfast served to our room in the morning. Dawn was very helpful with dining recommendations and travel information.

A lovely little place in a good location for Ocean Avenue,the beach and close to the 17 mile drive. The 2 owners were lovely and helpful .the breakfasts were delicious and a great touch having them brought to your room. I loved having my own front door, I would definitely come back. Scott johnston

We rated HL "Very Good", but approaching "Excellent". Very co-operative inn keepers. Very friendly. Nicely kept. A bit small in the bathroom, especially the shower. Breakfasts were excellent and delivered promptly. Plus, they were tasty and warm. Located near-enough to the main drag and all the shops and restaurants, but not too close. The parking was a bit tight, but... More
