My husband and I have been to the "Ranch" several times to drink and dine. This time we experienced the Sunday brunch. To say it was superb just isn't enough. Every single dish was exceptional and staff made sure the there was plenty of food. The manager, Lotte Mathieson, is a breath of fresh air and she truly knows how... More

This was our second stay at Mission Ranch and it was just as we remembered it. The grounds are beautiful - it's clear that they take their landscaping seriously. Our room was cozy and clean and the bed was quite comfortable (if not a bit high off the floor for me). The staff is helpful and friendly and the breakfast... More

We had a big group meet at this hotel for a long weekend. It was a cute hotel. I think they were a little surprised by our kids and adults with tattoos, though. We had forgotten that parts of California were super conservative, and this is one of them. It made us all laugh, though. The restaurant was full of... More

I loved Carmel and this hotel is situated off the main town with its own unique flavor. The sheep make the memory! They are quite photogenic and they carry on a conversation! The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was in the tennis house and served a nice variety.

First came here in 2000 as a young bloke away with my mates. Stumbled onto this by chance, per the Internet. Loved it then just as now. I'm here 15 years later with the Mrs and 7 year old. Here's the scoop. It's popular here so don't assume you can just bowl up and get a room. Those days seem... More

Went for a late dinner - after dark so can't comment on the view - but the scene inside had us transfixed! The slightly retro, unfussy bar area was filled with 50-something locals having a great time enjoying the (very good) pianist. We were transfixed - I'm sure a few wife's have been swapped and affairs started in this place!... More

We just drove and to see if they had a room and were warmly accommodated by Angel at the front desk. We had a nice queen room in the farmhouse which adequately met our needs. Breakfast was basic (cereals, pastries etc) but a good start to the day. The site is beautiful with meadows leading down to the water. I... More

The Mission Ranch is exactly what I was looking for in my stay in Carmel. Absolutely beautiful setting! I had a meadow view room with sheep in the paddock. It was comfortable and inviting. The fireplace added a homey feel. Simple elegance at its best! Can't wait to return.

I have stayed at multiple legacy properties. The challenge is to strike a viable balance between maintaining the authentic vintage nature of the property, but providing guests with appropriate modern amenities and services. There will always be a wide range of opinions of how well this is accomplished as is evident from prior reviews of this property in TA. I... More

We had the most breathtaking experience sharing Mission Ranch with our family and friends for our wedding. The staff is awesome and very attentive. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day with the soft breeze, sunshine, gloriouos green grass, and the sheep in the background during our ceremony. We are so blessed and thankful.
