Carmel Valley Ranch, between the Santa Lucia Mountains and the leafy vineyards of Carmel, provides exploration and relaxation.
Covering 500 acres, it offers infinite options for activities upon its own grounds. Head off on hiking trails past wild deer and turkeys, play golf, or try out one of the tennis courts. For children there’s the River Ranch Camp and day-care. Three sun-drenched salt-water swimming pools, a family pool, equestrian centre, spa and fitness centre add to the facilities.
The 139 suites are furnished in an earthy, natural style, and come with private decks overlooking the forest or valley.
Much needed after a busy day is the Lodge restaurant, River Ranch café, and refreshment selection at the Golf Clubhouse. Produce is locally sourced from the Monterey Coast and cooking demonstrations can be arranged. There’s also a sustainable four-acre pinot noir vineyard, year-round organic garden, and a world-class bee apiary on-site.

“Carmel Valley Ranch should be a stop on anyone’s itinerary in California. You can enjoy that quintessential American Ranch experience without having to travel too far, and it’s also conveniently close to the coast so you can really enjoy the best of both worlds here. We love that the restaurant serves organic farm to table style and the ranch even has its own vines so you can enjoy some truly local wine here.”
