“Gluten free and dog friendly bed and breakfast.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

Sadly, we only stayed one night at this property. We had perfect accoms for our party of four with two dogs in a two bedroom, two bath unit. Very clean, and appeared to be recently remodeled. At breakfast they had gluten free options like bread, bagels, and cereal. Toaster is shared though so if you are sensitive don't go that route. No eggs but fresh fruit and yogurts are gfree too. For a great gfree seafood dinner definitely go to Flaherty's, their gfree menu was extensive.

We stayed here in one of the second-floor, two bed/two bath suites. It was four adults and a 1-1/2-year-old. Nice check-in, good breakfast quiches and pastries, sunny decor and good light in our room (# 7), excellent jetted tub in one of the bathrooms, and cozy fireplace. Only about 4 blocks to the main drag of Carmel, ie Ocean St. We did not have a dog; other guests did, but it was lovely. I never heard dogs barking in the morning or at night, etc.. We all had a good time and enjoyed our stay. We would consider returning next time we travel to Carmel.

My Wife and I looked at most of the available nice places to stay in Carmel for our 40th Wedding Anniversary and chose Carmel Country Inn. We were very glad we did. From the time we checked in to time we left (3days)it was a wonderful experiance . We stayed in one of the two treetop rooms. These rooms had spa tub important to me , fireplace more important to wife, kingsize bed , comfortable balcony that we used a lot, and all the amenities we needed including small refrigerator. The room was nicely set up for us by staff spa/tub essentials, truffles and bottle of very nice wine picked by staff complete with two Carmel Country Inn wine glasses (these are extras that I purchased for my wife )
Breakfast was very nice as I was able to go down to their breakfast room and have a quiet meal read the paper and relax, letting my wife sleep an do her thing. After Breakfast I was able to make a nice tray with great pastries ,fruits , bagels coffee to take up to room for my wife ( the staff will bring up breakfast in bed if you wish but it was a nice to have the choice to make the tray special for my wife. The Inn is about a 5 MIN walk to town allowing us to not have to drive and try to park in town, also on the day you check out you can leave your packed car till 3pm in their parking lot , time for more shopping or a nice lunch.
The staff were great and very laid back, they were very good at pointing out places to eat or go putting them in handout maps , making sure you got extra towels, coffee or snacks that were in breakfast room. We enjoyed the room , the staff ( Ann, Dolores, Nancy and in particular a very nice young lady named Rachael)
When we think about our 41st Ann. or just another trip to Carmel we will stay at the carmel country inn

We enjoyed our stay from the beginning. Great service and ample breakfast choices. We had the treehouse king room. It was so quiet and when we arrived we received champagne and chocolates which was awesome. It is close to the beach and downtown. Watched a video on the huge TV I our room. The balcony was lovely too.

Room Tip: Treehouse room is big and has a jacuzzi bath.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights recently with our 4-legged traveling companion (our Staffordshire Bull Terrier, Abby), and were very pleased with our decision to stay at this charming inn. It was just what we needed--a friendly, comfortable place that made us feel right at home.

We stayed in room 12 which is a spacious King Suite. Our accommodation consisted of a large living room with a fireplace, two-seater couch, armchair, coffee table, TV, coffee maker, and a wooden cabinet with a refrigerator inside it. The bedroom had a comfortable king-sized bed, plenty of closet space, and a small flat-screen TV. The bathroom was very large with a fabulous whirlpool tub, a separate glass-enclosed shower, ample counter space, and plenty of soft, fluffy towels. Overall the furnishings were tasteful and suited the country-type ambiance of the inn. Even though this place is very popular with people traveling with their dogs, you wouldn't know that dogs had stayed here. It's spotlessly clean and very well maintained.

The breakfasts were great and offered a wide variety of options, ranging from fresh fruit salad (strawberries, grapes, blueberries) and yogurts to pastries, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, cereals, and quiches. I also liked that they had Peet's Coffee--regular and decaf. You have the option of eating breakfast in the cozy breakfast room or on the patio, or taking a tray back to your room.

The inn is on a quiet street, about a 10 minute walk to the beach or a 5 minute walk to the center of town. There is off-street parking in a courtyard. Overall, we loved our stay here, and wouldn't hesitate to stay at this charming, dog-friendly inn again!

Even if you are not traveling with your pet, you will like this place because it is quiet, comfortable and close to downtown. It is walking distance to the beach.
We loved the place because they made our dogs feel really welcome. They even have a hose and towels to rinse your dogs after they have been to the beach! Carmel is a wonderful place to vacation with your pet because there are so many off leash parks, state parks and, of course, the beach. Many of the restaurants have outdoor seating that allows pets, but the inn will give you a list of recommended pet sitters who will come and watch your dog(s) in your room for you while you dine out alone! This gave us the best of both worlds - we could take our dogs with us on vacation but had the freedom to go out without them.

We have spent Christmas in this lovely Inn and it was a true treat. Cozy, tasteful and friendly. Delicious breakfast with lots of options, great location - every morning sunrise had a rainbow. We are avid animal lovers but unfortunately allergic to dog/cat hair but it wasn't a problem at all in this pet friendly Inn because they keep it spotlessly clean. Wonderful experience all around. Two thumbs up!
