Interaction with Guests
We love to meet new people and discuss adventures and interests. We also know that some people prefer to keep to themselves. State your preference and we will honor your choice.
Our neighborhood is fondly known as "Carmel-by-the-Cows!" Sometimes the only sounds you can hear are the cows in their pasture on the adjacent rolling hills. We have wildlife so we ask that guests drive carefully, especially if arrival is after dark.
The best way for getting around is either your car, any one of the local taxis or our bicycles in the garage, if you are so moved.
Other Things to Note
There is a large bicycling community here both of the road and mountain variety. We are 4 miles from Fort Ord which is known for its mountain biking trails. A round trip from our location to Pebble Beach is about 36 miles. There are group rides on Saturday. If you are up for a century ride, you can traverse from our location around Arroyo Seco, through Carmel Valley, over Las Laureles Grade and back.
If wine tasting is something of interest, traveling in a southerly direction will take you a wonderful River Road Wine Tour -- there are tasting rooms all along the two lane road all the way to Arroyo Seco. There are also tasting rooms in Carmel Valley and Carmel by the Sea.
We ask that there be no smoking in the house. As our guest and out of respect for our neighbors we ask you always park in our driveway.
