This is our second year in a row staying here and there will be many more years to come. Last year we were married on Carmel Beach and the wedding party stayed at the places in the Forest Lodge and our family stayed at their other property, the Lamp Lighter Inn. Both were perfect locations and Inge and Melissa are fantastic at making sure all needs are met. This year we returned to the Forest Lodge and stayed in the Garrett Loft which is a fabulous room. My favorite part of our trip came alive through buying one of their beach bonfire kits with everything (chairs, blankets, firewood, fire starter, lighter,etc...) you need to have a fire on the beach. On the night of our anniversary we picked it up and walked to scenic and 10th (the place of our ceremony) to watch the sunset and then drink wine by the fire when the sun went down. It was stunning and they made it easy.
