feels like you are far far away....peaceful, authentic, happy. adventures, activites, experiences were unlike anything else. staff was perfectly friendly and professional.
only negative comment - rooms recently redone. was in the 300's. still felt a bit 'old'. there's an elegance missing in the suites, that does exist in the lodge, at the pool, at the spa etc.

Kids loved: pool, hot tub, goats, chickens, bees, food, and they wanted to do all the classes! But the main thing they looked forward to were the daily evening s'mores.

We loved: hiking, views from the room, service, drinks by the pool, and the many fire pits that seemed to be always going and where you could always get a seat.

We tried out all the restaurants -- golf club for breakfast, poolside for lunch, main lodge for dinner. All excellent.

Located a short ways down Carmel Valley Road, yet far enough from Carmel to be quiet, restful and not tourist overrun. Pleasant and spacious room with amenities, plus a view porch back patio, ultramodern bath, nice. Short walk to clubhouse / restaurant and bar. Lots of families with kids, we loved it. Plenty of space for all ages.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to Clubhouse / Restaurant

We really enjoyed our stay at the Ranch. What a beautiful experience. Everything was prefect, the staff, the accommodations even the weather. A big thank you to Golf Processional Terry for making our trip so memorable.
