My husband and I and sister-in-law landed at Happy Landings in mid-July. The new remodeling was very well done and the gardens are beautiful and restful. We had two rooms, Martin and Hemingway. We loved it. It was cozy, welcoming and quiet. We met both the owner and the manager. They do a superb job. We did not bring a... More

My husband and I stayed here recently and had a great time. The lady who runs the front desk is so friendly and helpful. We made a mistake with our reservation, and she went above and beyond to help accommodate- she could have easily just let us suffer the consequences of our mistake. The room was comfortable and clean- I... More

Recently remodeled to accomodate weddings and while beautiful to look at is not as dog-friendly as other places we've stayed. You must sign a rules paper that promises you will not let your dog on the small lawn. Their own dog is no longer allowed in the registering room & barks unhappily about it :( (& this could be heard... More

My family and I recently stayed a couple nights at Happy Landing. We had been looking for a dog friendly place close to the beach. We were pleased beyond our expectations. We stayed in the "Eastwood" suite, which accomodated my husband and I, 2 teenage daughters and 2 young puppies. The staff was more than accomodating, meeting our every need... More

This place is absolutely charming. It’s just been redone and it’s immaculate, comfortable and enchanting. We love Carmel and the incredible dog beach, which was a 5-minute walk away (Carmel is VERY dog friendly) and this exquisite B&B and its owner Dawn, is the icing on the cake to this sweet town. A really wonderful place!

I stayed at this is a beautiful B&B with a friend. The place itself was charming, very clean, and with lots of character. We stayed in the "Hepburn" suite which was full of light (and stocked with Hepburn movies which we enjoyed watching one evening). The owner let us look at a larger room to see if we preferred it...

My family and I had a family reunion at Happy Landing last weekend. It was a great environment for such an event, with the beautifully re-done courtyard and close proximity to the beach and Carmel Village. The rooms were lovely and the breakfast each morning was tasty. I would highly recommend the Happy Landing for anyone who is looking for... More

Only a few blocks from the beautiful, large town beach, the Inn was a great place for the weekend. We chose it specifically because it was dog friendly (complete with a doggy treat on the morning breakfast tray), but I would choose it again even without a dog. The decor is fresh, clean, and updated (no frufru decorations here), and... More

We stayed in this lovely and beautiful Bed and Breakfast to celebrate our anniversary and decompress from our crazy week. The room was so adorably decorated that we want to emulate this style in our own house. The courtyard is charming and quaint and the breakfast in the morning was delicious! The owner was very helpful and gave us a... More

My husband and I spent our 1 year wedding anniversary here at this quaint B&B and loved it. We loved the fact that they are dog friendly and could bring along our 9 month old Great Dane. We stayed in the Clint Eastwood room/ cabin. It was the most perfect one bedroom, one bath with a small living area (w/... More
