About Carmel Valley Ranch in Carmel, California

Behind the welcoming gates of the vast, 1700-acre estate known as Carmel Valley Ranch lies a world of extraordinary natural beauty. Verdant fairways, majestic oaks and brilliant flowers are set against the rugged hills of the Monterey Peninsula, just minutes east of Carmel-by-the-Sea. Carmel Valley Ranch is so restful and scenic, we feel a strong yearning to return to the hilltop lodge, beautiful suites and natural beauty with butterflies, bluejays, turkey, deer and hummingbirds that are everywhere you look.

While golfers consider the course to be the principal attraction at Carmel Valley Ranch, the Resort attracts couples who seek privacy and amenities, be sure to stop by the Chateau Julien Winery on your way into the resort and pick out a couple bottles of their current or reserve stock. How much more romantic can it be to have a fireplace roaring, Jacuzzi bubbling, drinking fine wine and watching the deer and wild turkey roam in the grassy knolls below your private suite? Awesome!

Within 5 minutes you can visit the Carmel Valley Barnyard Shopping Plaza. Add another 10 minutes and you’ll be at the Carmel Mission or in the heart of action in busy downtown Carmel shopping district.

If you stay at the lodge you can play the golf course. Learn more about the 18-hole championship Carmel Valley Golf Club.


To top it all off, the fantastic beaches of Carmel are not far away.
