Having stayed at this lodge a few years ago, I`d almost forgot how special and classy it is until returning recently. The rooms are exquisitely appointed and supplied with quality amenities that are not usually found in high end resorts. The foyer has a copper covered bar with a spacious under the counter refrigerator stocked with cheese, white wine and fruit juices. Filtered water and 2 bottles of red wines with wine glasses are on the counter along with bags of potato chips, popcorn and sweets, al complimentary. The bathrooms are large with double sinks, a large jacuzzi tub, separate shower area and separate toilet. The bathroom amenities are of the highest quality. The large bedroom/ living room area has a fireplace, seating area with a sofa and swivel chair, flat screen TV and a table for 2 with fresh fruit. Their is an outside private patio with wooden chairs and tables. Quality robes and slippers are also provided.
It does not get much better than this and there is more. The lodge itself is classy, has wines, fruit and comfy seating areas. The staff is very friendly and service minded. The dinning areas both inside and out are perfect settings for the quality dinning offered from a top chef, Cal Stamenov who is as good as they come.
The lawn has croquet set up and their is a tennis court. Hiking is also an option.
Located in the quiet and peaceful Carmel Valley 11 miles from Carmel, this is a retreat for those desiring to have a class, country romantic experience.
