Historic and charming. Excellent staff. Perfect location, quiet and close to Carmel town and the ocean. Rate was fair, and included an excellent breakfast which I looked forward to, on a beautiful patio. Ocean breeze kept the room cool. Very comfortable bed. Recently redone. Gardens and a pool. Nice bar with reasonable drinks. Close to amazing natural beauty, and Carmel is alive as an artist community. Great food in town, and shopping. Perfect long weekend.
