We were able to walk from here to the 10th hole at Pebble Beach. It is also within walking distance to Ocean St. where all the action is in Carmel. Clean room, comfortable bed and quiche for breakfast were icing on the cake.

We stayed over Christmas with out 5 month old puppy and had a great time in this charming B&B. It was like staying in our very own cottage with the convenience of breakfast brought to your room with even a dog biscuit for the pup. It is very convenient situated and in walking distance from the shops and restaurants plus beach. Yet hidden away in a quiet spot with a lovely garden complete with hanging flowers baskets and a pond with a fountain. We look forward to coming back here to this treasure of a find.

On a short winter stopover in Carmel, we felt warm and immediatly at home at the Happy Landing Inn. The owner is friendly and charming and serves breakfast into the room. The oldtime furniture matches the 1920 style buildings. The entire property is extremly well kept and clean. Just can recommend it to anyone for a hideout in Carmel!

I've had the pleasure of staying at this inn twice now. The first visit, I was travelling solo and stayed in one of the smaller rooms which would have been just perfect for two. The inn has the perfect blend of unpretentious charm (stone stairs and paths, gazebos and fountains, cottage garden courtyard) and modern amenities (super comfy bed, crisp clean sheets, nice tiled shower, TV). The second visit was with my husband and we stayed in a larger room which was more like a suite, a bedroom and living/sitting room separated by a bathroom. So nice! Huge comfy bed with the same yummy sheets, toasty gas fireplace and plenty of room to relax. We will definitely be back!

A nice surprise. I did little investigating before staying here. I'm usually more thorough in my research but everything seemed to be occupied the weekend of the Pebble Beach Classic Car week so I went with it mostly because it was available. It was a lovely surprise to arrive somewhere comfortable, convenient and clean. A parking pass was provided which was fortunate as the Car Show seemed to have filled up the town beyond capacity and parking was hard to come by. The room was clean and everything was conveniently placed. The decor was homey and inviting. The placement of the rooms surrounding a garden was lovely. It felt almost um... smurfy. I loved it. Would go back in an instant. Dawn the innkeeper provided us with a lovely breakfast served at our door in the morning. A relaxing end to our journey.

Happy Landing is a most appropriate name as we stumbled upon this B&B by accident on our vacation from Ireland. The landlady is a very nice person, the signal for a lovely breakfast to be delivered to the room is opened blinds and adds to the romance of the place. Authentic antique decoration combined with Hansel and Gretel type architecture and great value make this place a must visit for anyone doing the pacific coast highway who is looking for a unique experience. We stayed 2 nights instead of the attended one and was well worth it.

Happy companions too! This is a charming, quiet, Carmel cottage B&B and we would have been happy just to stay in and enjoy our room. So close to everything and yet it feels separate. Loved the antiques. Dawn was very personable and helpful, and our little pooch was welcome and enjoyed Happy Landing too! We already booked our room for next year!

Room Tip: Room 2 is charming but has limited shower space.
