My wife and I stayed at the Carriage House for our 29th wedding anniversary. The room we had (#5) was tastefully decorated and the fireplace made it very romantic.
What made the place special was the service. Before we arrived I called and talked to Cathy, the manager, to explain that we were vegan vegetarians and asked what she had on the breakfast menu to accomodate our diet. She went shopping to get what we wanted. This was her way of saying thanks for picking her inn. She took time to locate restaurants in Carmel that catered to vegetarians and told us about a great place to buy vegetarian food, the Whole Foods Store in Monterey. Talk about going above and beyond the call of duty.
When we arrived Cathy met us as we got out of our car. She checked us into our room, carrying most of our luggage. The inn provides champagne in the room upon arrival, but when she found out that we don't drink alchohol she purchased a bottle of sparkling cider.
Breakfast was served to our room. When we brought home some lunch she took it and heated it for us. This is the kind of service that rates a four star AAA rating.
The only negative thing was a dripping faucet and a toilet that would sometimes not shut off. Aside from this the stay was quite pleasant. We would highly recommend Carriage House.
If you are planning on going to Monterey or Carmel make sure to consider the Carriage House Inn.
