You will have to come up from the south to visit Lucia as there are road closures for a few more weeks. But this is definitely a wonderful visit with comfortable rooms, good lunch or tea and stunning views.

Came to Lucia Lodge by chance and were so glad we did. The food was really good cafe level food and the service was very personable. Even better was the stunning view. All in all, a magical little moment on our trip to Monterey.
