  • We took advantage of reduced green fees due to aeration to play this great golf course. This course requires carts since there are long distances between greens and tee boxes and it is quite hilly. We...  more »

  • The rooms were nice, but it required a lot of uphill walking to get to and from the lodge. The lodge food was decent at best. No microwave in the rooms was off considering how expensive this place is. Also, if you plan on golfing or playing tennis, make sure you "look the part" or they won't allow you to play, even when paying the fee. Our TV wouldn't stay on but others didn't have that issue with their room. There was construction going on and they started around 7:00 AM which was a buzz kill. Very few activities for kids. Beautiful location and tucked away.
  • This place is amazing! Really nice landscape, excellent food, great activities, very suitable for families with kids. The room upkeep wasn't up to the standard you would expect from such a resort (especially the electrical installation), but the staff is very helpful and friendly.
  • Nice secluded 500 acre playground as they like to call it. We stayed in the estate suite which had a kitchenette, perfect to cook food for our little one. There is a deal for locals especially on Sunday with rates as much as 50% off. We will definitely come back since one visit is not enough.
  • Attended Carmel Valley Ranch for a wedding. The Venue was very scenic and picturesque. We were situated at the top of the ranch with an amazing view of the surroundings. The staff was extremely nice and the banquet was quaint. On a side note, our dinner was surprisingly good. It's a charming venue.
  • Super relaxing ambiance. This place is magnificent. With beautiful views if you for a hike,. And multiple.of other activities. The food was more than great. Super healthy and delicious.
