Just minutes from Carmel’s stylish shops and galleries, this relaxing inn is owned by actor-director Clint Eastwood. Overlooking meadows and a rocky coastline, the hotel’s historical 1850 farmstead is complemented by 31 charming guest accommodations in several restored outbuildings and garden bungalows. The upper-floor Meadowview rooms 19, 22 and 25, featuring carved king beds, separate sitting areas, gas fireplaces, private balconies with ocean views and baths with jetted tubs, are especially recommended. All lodgings lack A/C. A delightfully informal indoor-outdoor restaurant serving classic American cuisine and a convivial piano bar both face wind-swept Point Lobos. Amenities include six tennis courts and a fitness club. Private or group tennis lessons with Jeff Gillette can be arranged.
Lowest Rate: Farmhouse Room, $140; Editor’s Choice: Meadowview Room, $310.
