Their renovation is quite tasteful although slow which is fine . Their rates are commensuratly low and fine for my purposes. I enjoy the peaceful atmosphere to relax at the end of a business day away from the bustle in the area

Cottage #21 was perfect for two adults and two pomeranians. We were right across the complimentary dog wash station and some trails we walked in the mornings. Whole property was peaceful. Super nice staff. We will be going back.

This is a great place if you have dogs - 40 acres, some beautiful landscaping, and trails to explore. It's also on the Carmel River (although that is very dry this year.)
We stayed in a rustic 2-bedroom cottage...small and a little in need of an update but charming nonetheless, with a kitchenette and fireplace.
Really liked the feeling of being in a secluded area where we could walk around with our dogs.
VERY friendly staff too.

Room tip: I would ask for an upgraded cottage next time.
