It seems that no matter where my wife and I travel, we make it a point to spend at least three days in Carmel at Svendsgaard's--and it invariably seems to be the highlight of our trip! The staff is friendly and accommodating. The terrific Inn Manager Raquel Randolph seems to take a direct and personal interest in making sure everything is just right. Example: I gazed out my room window at 6 am, and saw her busily inspecting the grounds, picking up an errant piece of paper, re-positioning the patio tables and chairs, etc. To me, that concern with the "little" things reflects on how well the Inn is managed--and it's managed extremely well. The rooms are immaculate, the beds comfortable, the basket breakfast satisfying (with a USA Today), and the nights are quiet and peaceful. During our most recent stay, we couldn't get a picture on the TV, but within 5 minutes an assistant was there and corrected the programming problem. As it turned out, we didn't watch much TV anyway--we, after all, were in Carmel. The Inn's town location is great for day or evening jaunts to the many shops or restaurants. While the Inn has no exercise facility, Carmel will beckon you to walk--and walk--with the sound of the ocean as accompanying background music. The ocean is only about a 15 minute walk from the Inn, or a few minutes drive. We usually take a lunch with us: a sandwich from Luca's, and sides from Nielsen's Market. Paradise!
