We thoroughly enjoyed our stay right from parking in front, until we had to leave. The atmosphere is very much like a neighborhood or family retreat. The room we had was spacious, very clean and well kept every day. The quiet location was close enough to many restaurants, galleries and shopping, yet just off the beaten path. The staff was...

Great staff and service. Mary was extremely helpful, and Dirk is the perfect host. All the staff were very helpful. The room was open, airy, and CLEAN. Quiet and private, with fresh oranges and lemons we picked off the trees right outside our door made this a special trip for us. Dirk's humor and stories at the breakfast buffet each... More

Convenient, quiet location with welcoming & friendly service. Free breakfast in charming dining room with fireplace is great! Rooms are simple, but clean & quiet with beautiful view of Carmel Valley hills from outdoor patio. We will definitely return on our next trip to Carmel!

My sister and I had a wonderful 5 day experience at Hidden Valley Inn. The inn-keeper, Dirk, was soft spoken and charmingly helpful. Mary, who greeted us when we arrived for check-in, was warm and outgoing. She made us feel feel truly welcome. As my sister and I ate breakfast, our eyes took in the glorious hills that serve as...

This place is quintessential Carmel Valley. Cute, rustic, charming, quiet, scenic. The staff is cheerful and accommodating, the dining area is bright with a fireplace and a deck looking into the valley. Flowers are everywhere. We booked a queen suite and they upgraded our room as a wedding gift, we held our ceremony on the deck. It was perfect! The... More

Loved staying here. I wish it had been longer. Staff are so friendly and accommodating. The grounds were gorgeous and immediately puts you in a calm mood. Perfect getaway from a stressful life. Rooms clean, beds wonderful, and yes shower pressure is not great but that normal for that area. Can't wait to stay here in the spring to see... More

on the occasion of my wife's birthday we chose country garden inns for the first time to the Carmel Valley area. To be away from everything and embrace nature and a friendly private inn with all the original charm. Short stay but was indeed pleasant.
