I don’t know how to explain the level of detail that went into crafting this experience but upon checking in you will inevitably feel that you were an active participant in nature and that your needs were met luxuriously during your stay.
Usually the two are mutually exclusive, but the stay at Carmela’s proves that the marriage of the two can be a reality.
From the exterior of the property, to the interior of the property you will feel the amount of care and passion that went into the space.
From the blending of the perfectly imperfect exterior architecture to match the diversity of the mountains that backdrop the property, to the elements of sustainability that are seamlessly integrated into the property, to the interior color palette and interior design accoutrements, you will feel a sense of welcoming warmth.
Water is life. The well water is pure and equally refreshing. The pristine, drinkable water will also serve as your shower water. Enjoy.
Other notable highlights: sunrises/sunsets, incredible tile shower, outdoor pool, plenty of seating, hummingbirds, horses, outdoor kitchen (if you want to cook), great nearby restaurant options (if you don’t want to cook) and plenty of trails to satisfy your exploratory curiosities.
Saving the best for last: Carmela and Joe are both warm, genuinely friendly, knowledgeable and simply put, the perfect hosts.
