We go to the Carmel area around Thanksgiving nearly every year. This is one of the nicest B & Bs in the area. The units are spacious, the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, and the property is quiet. The bathrooms have been renovated and are larger than what you would find in most B & Bs. Many B &... More

This was our second stay here this year, and it was better than ever. Friendly and welcoming people who seem genuinely pleased that you are there. Rooms are as advertised on the website and the location is perfect for wondering around Carmel without being on top of the center city congestion. But the best part continues to be the breakfast....

We stayed here with our dog for a weekend. The King suite was very nice and comfortable, also very private since it's on a separate building. It has its own parking right outside. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. They gave us good information on dog friendly restaurant and services. The bathroom had an enormous tub, but a smaller shower.... More

My lasting and wonderful impression of the Carmel Country Inn is of a quiet corner of happy repose near the very heart of the lovely town of Carmel. The first thing one notices is the sweet graciousness of the grounds and decorative motifs. Next is the friendly and highly efficient staff who could not have made me and my wife... More

This is about the best pet-friendly bed and breakfast I have ever been to and that is saying a lot. The staff is outstanding, the rooms well appointed, and the breakfast they offer is tasting and filling. Tucked away just at the edge of downtown but in a little hollow, one can walk to just about anywhere in Carmel proper.... More

A wonderful stay! A cosy suite with two bedrooms,a bathroom and small sitting area. Perfect for us as 2 couples travelling together. We loved the delicious, generous buffet ( but attended for assistance if needed) breakfast and daytime snacks. Even given treats for our on- going journey. Great situation- greater edge of Carmel but easy walking distance to town and... More

Cozy and friendly place to stay in the heart of Carmel By The Sea. Amy, Jacqueline, Anna & Maria were fantastic! Our only regret, we didn't see Clint Eastwood in town! Our only recommendation for the Inn, the living room needs a larger TV, 50" would be ideal. Other than that, everything was perfect.
