Country Garden Inns
Nestled in the sunny santa lucia mountains - just minutes from carmel by the sea california. Country garden inns offers two bed and breakfast inns with european hospitality. Both hidden valley inn and acacia lodge represent quiet country living at its best out of the reach of the coastal fog and boasting one of the worlds finest year-round climates.
This was a new location for both of us so we didn't know what to expect. It really was charming! The rooms are comfortable, clean and the veiws of mountains towering over the property are stunning. The continental breakfast was perfect. They even packed a picnic basket for us to enjoy in our room. Quiet, and well kept up. We went for the winetasting and dinner package. Not knowing what to expect, we were VERY pleasantly surprised with the restaurants that were picked for us. We will definetly return. It will hold a special memory for a long time to come.
The staff was so friendly and helpful when we checked in, giving us a great restaurant and wine tasting recommendations. We loved the grounds and the beautiful flowers. They have a nice breakfast with belgian waffles along with an evening wine and cheese hour both included in the rate. A good value for Carmel Valley which offers peace and quiet and friendliness.
My wife and I stayed in one of the rooms in the Country Gardens Inn on a recent trip to Carmel and Monterey. The brochure and the website both made it look like a pleasant, somewhat luxurious place to stay. Unfortunately, this couldn't have been further from the truth. Our room was extremely run down, with flimsy furniture, tears in the screen door, and bare drywall patching in multiple places on the walls. Also, the room smelled dank, as if perhaps the building had started to rot.
Another shortcoming was that the room faced the dismal-looking courtyard and pool. The supposed "gardens" looked mostly like weeds poking up through the courtyard bricks. And the brick courtyard gathers heat, so it felt like an oven even in March. This, coupled with our room not having air conditioning, made it unpleasant to be in the hot, smelly room for any length of time. I would hate to see what it would be like in the summer.
The only positive was that it was moderately clean. But moderately clean accommodations don't warrant the exorbitant prices they charge. A high-end inn this is not. My advice is travel a couple miles to Carmel or Monterey and get a much nicer room for less money.
When ever we want a little get away close to home we always visit the Country Garden Inns. The gentleman (Skip I belive his name is) is always very friendly. The rooms are always clean and decorated very cute. The complimentary breakfast and wine and cheese hour is complimented with beautiful views of the lush green valley. This inn is a very quiet place and perfect for relaxing by the pool.
I stayed at the Hidden Valley Inn. Very comfortable room. Wonderfully peaceful setting. Mountains, trees and clear skies. Very upscale breakfast area with a great view. Great staff. Can't wait to stay there again.
