“Quaint, cozy, beautiful, peaceful - loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2010

I found Mission Ranch on Trip Advisor and there were so many nice comments that we decided to stay there. I only stayed one night but wish I had stayed several. It is not your typical hotel. There are several old buildings on the "ranch" that are now very nice accomodations. I praise Clint Eastwood for restoring this picturesque property and not allowing developers to ruin it. The pictures online don't do it justice. From the terrace of the quaint restaurant you overlook the pasture with sheep and the Pacific in the distance - what a view! In July, there were wildflower gardens throughout the ranch - beautiful. There's a piano bar that was great fun and very entertaining. We didn't walk to town as it's a little hike, but it is a short drive. We loved Carmel - lots of shops & restaurants and it is a very classy town. Can't wait to go back to Mission Ranch!

Myself and my husband stayed in the Mission Ranch for 2 nights which was perfect, just wished we could have stayed longer. We were drawn to Carmel-by-the-Sea as we knew Clint Eastwood lived there, we wanted to see the attraction of Carmel. We were not disappointed. Its not a typical American town, its so peaceful, laid back and relaxed.

We stayed in the "Farmhouse" which was lovely. We had 2 lovely meals in the restaurant, the service was excellent and the atmosphere in the bar was great.

It has lovely surroundings, its lovely to sit under the patio heaters on the evening and eat your meal.

Highly recommend it.

We stayed for 2 nights during the last week of June. We had a room on the second floor in the "Ranch Triplex". This building contains 3 rooms, 2 rooms on the first floor, and the room we occupied on the second floor. It was very comfortable with a very large room (my guess is 16 x 24) 2 queen beds, The bathroom was also very large with a deep tub and very good shower. The restaurant on site is EXCELLENT. Both the food and the service were some of the best we have had. All the staff were very attentive, but not annoying, as some restaurants can be. My wife and I found the clam chowder about the best we have had, and being native Massachusetts residents we have had alot. If we make it back to these parts, we would definately stay again.

From Paris, France and after 4 days in SF...we finally landed in Carmel on a Tuesday nigh (8:00pm) and did target on purpose Clint Eastwood place for lodging first. Had no idea about the pricing...positively surprised by the affordability, the right balance between comfort and cozy room (while not being at all bourgeois or snobbish). Finally had diner at the restaurant...another good surprise (but the wine prices...a little bit too much expensive for what is it. But you know we are french so very strict and knowledgable here ;-)

Good spot overall. To be visited

This place is perfection in Carmel and we would not want to stay anywhere else. We stayed in "The Barn" and the only downside was that it backs up to a school that's loud during school hours. If you can afford it spring for the rooms that overlook the sheep pasture they will be very quiet. The patio is the PERFECT place to relax and have a drink while the sun starts to set. It overlooks the sheep pasture and you can see the waves crashing in the distance. It's a very short walk to Carmel Mission and the Carmel River Beach - both are beautiful. It's also an easy walk to downtown Carmel and I would 100% recommend staying at this little slice of paradise instead of the expensive B&B's you find in downtown.

We had a cabin with a porch - very private, with a fireplace. The porch included two rocking chairs and overlooked the sheep meadow and then the ocean and surf just beyond that. It was tucked into a busy neighborhood so at first we were not sure what to expect - but after we arrived, we felt so secluded. We ate dinner twice at the restaurant on site because the food and the service was great. We enjoyed the grounds and walked around quite a few times.

The drives south down the coast to Big Sur, Point Lobas and more were much better than Monterey or Pebble Beach drives - I wanted to spend more time in Big Sur but we were exhausted from shopping in Carmel, visting Point Lobas and left Big Sur for last - should have switched that around.

This is a nice place - but quite pricey. Their service is first class and welcoming and the whole mystic of staying at "Clint's Place" was super.

We admit it - we wanted to stay at "Clint's place." It was worth every penny. It's not a budget accomodation; it's a beautiful, peaceful ranch setting set back just a bit from the bay. Sheep in the pasture during the day, and lots of deer between the pasture and the bay at dusk. The room was very spacious, decor and amenities were excellent. Only downside was the jetted tub worked for a short time then stopped.

We ate dinner at the restaurant onsite; excellent food, ambience and service. The complimentary breakfast the next day was just enough; it was very pleasant to sit on the verandah near the tennis courts and enjoy the morning.

Highly, highly recommend this spot for anyone. It's not cheap - but it's SO worth it.
