Salt House at Carmel Valley Ranch Is Salt of the Earth

Salt House at Carmel Valley Ranch Is Salt of the Earth

Farm-to-table sea salt is made right on the property

Robert Kirkland from the Monterey Bay Salt Co. doesn’t have any ordinary job. Not only does he run a salt farm in California's Salinas Valley, where he's licensed to commercially harvest salt water from the Monterey Bay Marine Sanctuary, but he is the manager of the six-month-old salt house at Carmel Valley Ranch.

When, if ever, did you hear about a salt house these days, a place where salt is homemade? Using unprocessed homemade sea salt in their dishes and spa treatments, Carmel Valley Ranch is the paragon of farm-to-table, with the salt house right in its backyard.

"At The Ranch we live farm-to-table, so we thought, why not sprinkle our home-grown, organic veggies with our own natural sea salt?" said Will Schaeffler, marketing coordinator at Carmel Valley Ranch in a note to The Daily Meal. "Staying true to our values, our salt is completely unprocessed and, unlike standard table salt, contains no additives. It has virtually no carbon footprint, as it is locally sourced and is never mined. The Ranch Sea Salt is truly the salt of the Earth!"

Chef Tim Wood experiments with the salt in various crystallization stages, adding a natural zest to every dining experience. How is the salt made, you ask? Simple. Pour salt water into a drying rack and wait three weeks. That’s it. Suddenly sea salt. Sometimes garlic and chile are added for flavor, but for the most part it is the simplest of processes.

In a world that is desperate to return to the farm, Carmel Valley Ranch has come back to a simple and laudable enterprise that is worth a visit just to see.

Too much salt of the earth in O.B.

Like a bowl of bad soup, there’s too much salt in the soil at the North Ocean Beach Gateway Project — and the flaw could push into next year the long-awaited completion of the quarter-acre mini-park at the corner of Sunset Cliffs and West Point Loma boulevards. A tentatively scheduled ribbon-cutting for November 20 now appears to be beyond reach.

The soil has already failed two tests and the city is awaiting results of the third, said Monica Muñoz, a spokesperson for the city’s Public Works Department. Each failed test brings more delays. It takes about 15 days to get results back, Muñoz said.

The city lacks a suitable facility to test the soil and must send the samples to a lab in Anaheim, a construction employee on site said. A contractor has been adding more topsoil and water in an attempt to reduce the salt content. Nothing may be planted until the soil meets city standards, Muñoz said.

The soil problem is the latest in a string of setbacks that has plagued the project’s second phase, which consists of decorative walls, landscaping, an irrigation system and an ADA-compliant walkway that meanders from the corner south to adjacent Robb Field. Phase II was originally envisioned as a six-month project to be completed by August of 2013 at a cost of $150,000, city documents show. But problems finding a contractor and budget issues delayed the groundbreaking until last June.

The city now estimates completion in February of 2015 at a cost of $401,000, according to a city estimate as of November 1. City councilmember Ed Harris, whose District 2 seat includes Ocean Beach, hoped for a ribbon-cutting before his term ends on December 10 as a way to express gratitude to the Ocean Beach Community Development Corporation and other civic groups, aide Chet Barfield said. It’s unclear whether a grand-opening ceremony can take place by that date, when election winner Lorie Zapf takes over.

The first phase of the project was completed in January of 2011 at a cost of just over $845,000. It consisted of a circular plaza with a shell art pattern and “People’s Wall” with memorial bricks and tiles. The park is located at the site of the former Anthony’s Restaurant, which was purchased in 1999 to make way for the project.

The entire project, also known as the Ocean Beach Entryway Plan, was started in 1997 with the hiring of a consultant to develop a master plan, according to the Ocean Beach Community Development Corporation website. The goal, it states, was to develop an entryway on the north end of Sunset Cliffs Boulevard that “would respect the sense of place, identity and diversity of the Ocean Beach Community.”

Exploring the 500-acre playground at Carmel Valley Ranch

Two years and $20 million in enhancements have produced an intriguing new Carmel Valley Ranch designed to bring out the inner child in every guest. There are tree swings, s’mores, a fanciful organic garden to explore, endless activities and meals meant to be shared family-style.

“It’s a carefree throwback to summer camp,” says sales and marketing director Brian Gipson. “Very luxurious, but playful and down to earth. People are on vacation and want to avoid pretension.”

The ranch—which first opened in the mid-1980s—was purchased in 2009 by John Pritzker, an heir to Hyatt Hotels and owner of Commune Hotels, which include the Joie de Vivre and Thompson Brands.

Thirty new suites have been added, all with sweeping views of the oak-studded hills of Carmel Valley. Many suites come with lavish outdoor soaking tubs or romantic fireplaces.

At the same time, new guest experiences were being developed. Seven thousand lavender plants were put in, along with 3.5 acres of pinot noir grapes, bee hives, a flower and vegetable garden, a salt drying house, an equestrian center and a relaxing spa with 11 treatment rooms—all in addition to the world-class golf course, swimming pools and tennis courts.

“Our guests have already been everywhere, so when they travel they are seeking experiences and what is very authentic and true to the destination,” said Gipson, explaining that agriculture and grape growing are traditional Carmel Valley pursuits. Legendary local experts direct farmstead activities connected with the gardens.

To cap the renovation and further connect guests with their surroundings, the ranch restaurant has been expanded and transformed into the Valley Kitchen, with a focus on locally-sourced food.

Award-winning executive chef Tim Wood remains at the helm. His deep roots in Carmel Valley—dating back to his time working at Bernardus Lodge—and his familiarity with the best local purveyors work perfectly with the new concept.

For example, local fisherman Jerry Wetle makes an appearance on the menu with “Fisherman Jerry’s Line Caught Daily Catch.” Other local purveyors include Swank Farms, California Kurobuta Pork, and Carmel cheese monger Kent Torrey.

Instead of the traditional appetizers, salads and entrees, the menu is organized in three sections: Let’s Taste, Let’s Share, and Let’s Eat.

“We call it eating like a chef,” says Wood. “It means having one of our signature cocktails and two or three plates to share.”

Under “Let’s Share,” for instance, you can find Honey and Goat Cheese Salad made with “Our Honey, Our Lavender and Goat Cheese from Charlie Casio in Big Sur.”

Other dishes, like Vietnamese Shrimp and Pork Bun Cha, Hawaiian Poke and Moroccan Spiced Beef Carpaccio, reflect cuisines other parts of the world because Wood likes to give all his cooks a chance to contribute to the menu. One of his own contributions is the Fried Green Tomatoes, which are made using his mother’s recipe.

Local residents are discovering that Valley Kitchen is the perfect spot to stop for late afternoon drinks and nibbles or for a late supper, since the kitchen doesn’t close until 10pm. The monthly winemaker dinner, held at different locations on the property each time, is also a big hit with Carmel Valley residents and a good value.

Valley Kitchen sommelier Dave Eriksen has assembled 150 different Monterey County wines, as well as other California and international labels and won Wine Spectator magazine’s Award for Excellence in 2015 for the first time.

And Carmel Valley Ranch has just launched it’s own wine label called Swing, made by winemaker Peter Figge. Swing wines include a chardonnay, rosé and pinot noir made from Monterey County grapes.

On October 9, Swing will release its first estate reserve pinot noir made from grapes grown on the ranch property and crushed last fall. The public is invited to the release party, wine dinner and harvest celebration taking place that day.

Some of the other local artisans who contribute their talents to Carmel Valley Ranch, include organic gardener Mark Marino, lavender grower and bee-keeper John Russo and salt maker Bob Kirkland.

Marino, who studied with Alan Chadwick at UC Santa Cruz, has built and maintains the resort’s colorful two-acre show garden—a popular wedding venue.

He works closely with chef Tim Wood to grow special ingredients needed for the chef’s seasonal menu. Some of his favorites include sweet torpedo onions, bronze fennel and lemon verbena. Marino also works with Dick Swank to make sure that the same vegetables in the show garden are grown at Swank Farms in Hollister to ensure a steady stream for the restaurant kitchen. He also guides guests in classes on composting and vegetable gardening.

Bob “the salt guy” Kirkland adds another dimension to the ranch-to-table experience. He is one of the only people in California permitted to take nutrient-dense seawater from the Monterey Bay and use it to make sea salt. He dries it in a crystal-caked salt house in the organic garden and shows guests how to make seasoned salts for use at home.

Russo planted the lavender fields and set up an apiary, which is home to 60,000 Italian honeybees. Guests and locals can suit up for Russo’s “Bee Experience” and taste honey scooped straight from the hive, while learning about how important honeybees are to the eco-system.

He also teaches how to distill lavender essential oils from the dried flowers and make it into soaps or scented candles—all signature ranch products that are stocked in the gift shop and used in the spa.

With its local artisans, Carmel Valley Ranch aims to touch visitors through all their senses, whether it’s a relaxing lavender-scented spa treatment, a stroll in the colorful garden or a shared feast at Valley Kitchen.

Finally, one insider tip for local kids and families: The equestrian center at Carmel Valley Ranch is a good place for pony rides and horseback riding in the hills. And it’s also becoming a popular birthday party spot, where kids can paint the pony with washable colors. Kids have a blast and, they say, the pony enjoys the attention.

Carmel Valley Ranch's New Creamery Is a Goat Cheese Wonderland

The resort is one of our favorite places to stay in California wine country.

We’ve waxed poetic about California’s Carmel Valley Ranch—think summer camp, significantly upgraded—multiple times. At one of the resort’s restaurants, Valley Kitchen, chef Tim Wood’s honey-chile wings have earned their spot on our �st chicken wings in the U.S.” roundup, and the ranch is one of our favorite places to stay in California wine country. This week, Carmel Valley announced a resort-wide revamp set to debut on June 15, that, among refreshed guest suites and new activities to try, includes two more culinary concepts to get excited about—The Market and the Creamery, located in the main lodge.

The Creamery is your destination for cheese. Expect pop-up tastings, cheese pairings, and various demonstrations and workshops led by the resort’s cheesemaker, Charlie Cascio—said cheese is made from Carmel Valley Ranch’s resident Swiss nanny goats, who can be found at the Goat Barn. (Yes, you can visit them.) Cascio started his career as a trained chef and is best known for his small batches of organic, cave-aged raw goat milk cheeses, so definitely keep an eye out for tastings on the horizon. The more dessert-minded may flock to the Creamery&aposs housemade yogurt and ice cream, which also makes use of resident goats.

The Newt in Somerset is a farmhouse estate in the English countryside

The Newt in Somerset is a hotel and spa located in southwest England in the county of Somerset near the town of Bruton, which is about three hours west of London.

Somerset means "land of the summer people." It's known for its flourishing farmland, and for being home to many traditional country estates, which in England have historically served as second homes and quiet retreats for people who live in larger, bustling cities.

The Newt itself is a 300-plus year old historic country estate that offers wide cultivated gardens, acres of apple orchards, and parkland.

When the property is open to visitors, there's an array of talks and workshops for guests about organic gardening and beekeeping. During the lockdown, while the property was closed to guests, growers continued to plant and harvest from the kitchen and market gardens multiple times a week.

Head beekeeper Paula Carnell still regularly tends to the onsite beehives, and cellar master Greg Carnell continues to press cider on site.

The Newt refocused its business to support locals by offering free, next-day delivery to nearby towns. The deliveries include fresh food items from the gardens, estate kitchens, bakery, butchery, and creamery. They also offer fresh-pressed cider, as well as other goods from local growers and artisan producers.

"We'll continue to celebrate Somerset, the apples, and the traditional cider apple orchards." said Greg Carnell, cellar master of cider operations at The Newt, on the absence of visitors.

Imagine a summer camp: s&rsquomores, horseback rides, archery lessons, making crafts and splashing in the pool. Now imagine a posh golf and tennis resort, with upscale dining and estate wines, luxurious lodgings and an indulgent spa.

Billionaire John Pritzker of San Francisco envisioned both in 2009 when his private equity firm acquired 500-acre Carmel Valley Ranch, a former pear orchard that had opened as a private golf club in 1981 and became a somewhat stodgy resort a few years later.

Drawing on fond memories of summer camp that punctuated his childhood in Chicago and travel industry expertise gained as son of the founder of Hyatt Hotels, Pritzker quickly began sowing the seeds for a multimillion-dollar, largely nature-based transformation.

The first phase reaped acclaim at its debut in 2010, with new programs and luxurious rooms continuing to sprout on the hilly resort. A brand-new corral and stables offering horseback trail rides cropped up last summer, along with the first round of spacious, indoor-outdoor treetop suites. An olive grove planted this spring is already fruiting, with plans afoot for pressing olive oil.

This summer saw the advent of archery sessions, an &ldquoequine perspective&rdquo program &mdash focused on relating to horses, rather than riding them &mdash and tours of the new butterfly garden. A handsome adult lap pool and sprawling hot tub also debuted at the River Ranch, the resort&rsquos family-friendly enclave on the valley floor that includes eight tennis courts, bocce courts, a locally sourced cafe and a children&rsquos recreation area.

Next month will see the release of the Ranch&rsquos first estate Pinot Noir, under the Swing label, named for the resort&rsquos iconic swings that hang from live oak trees guests can help crush this year&rsquos grape harvest at a special event Saturday, Sept. 19. The Ranch hired respected winemaker Peter Figge &mdash one of a half-dozen designated Ranch &ldquoartisans&rdquo&mdash to tend the 4-acre sustainable vineyard and produce house wines, and Carmel Lavender&rsquos John Russo to manage the lavender fields and lead tours of the apiaries, built to house the fields&rsquo most frequent visitors.

&ldquoI love watching people experience our vineyard with no hesitation, diving into the plants, and knowing they can taste and experience the natural way the vines behave throughout the year,&rdquo Figge said.

Andrea Weiss, the Ranch&rsquos wildlife expert, said she often stops in the vineyard while leading one of her frequent bird-watching walks or scenic hikes. &ldquoSometimes I sneak a few grapes off the vine to offer the guests,&rdquo she said sheepishly. &ldquoI tell them about the wine, the lavender, its relationship with the bees, and how our beekeeper is the lavender distiller. . I admire (Pritzker) for having the vision to make it more than a golf and tennis resort.&rdquo

Carmel Valley Ranch Welcomes Guests Back To Its 500-Acre Playground Beginning July 1

Carmel Valley Ranch is a playful resort situated on 500 wild acres in the foothills of the Santa Lucia Mountains along California’s Central Coast near Big Sur and Monterey.

CARMEL, Calif. (PRWEB) June 12, 2020

Summer is a time for play, and just in time for the season, Carmel Valley Ranch will reopen its doors for overnight stays beginning July 1, 2020. The resort has been fully optimized to give guests the perfect amount of personal space as they start to travel again—with 500 acres of room to roam, they will be free to explore with confidence.

Although the way people play will be a bit different in the coming months, the cherished hallmarks of The Ranch remain the same. Among them are self-guided hikes and garden tours, three pools, the Pete Dye-designed championship golf course, private and semi-private outdoor activities such as beekeeping and archery, and s’mores under the stars. Ideal for couples and families alike, Carmel Valley Ranch is a place where people rekindle romances, reunite with friends and loved ones, revive spirits, or simply take a few days to get away.

“At Carmel Valley Ranch, we’re serious about the art of play—and we are excited to welcome guests back to enjoy our playground with the same abandon as before, but with new enhancements to ensure their well-being,” said Managing Director Peter McMahon. “We look forward to seeing kids laughing on the swings, couples watching the sunset from the hot tub, and families hiking our trails.”

Summer’s bounty will be most evident at Valley Kitchen, the resort’s signature restaurant, which now features a spacious indoor-outdoor seating plan for guests to savor Chef Tim Wood’s creations. Dishes showcase produce from the on-site organic garden, catch-of-the-day fresh seafood and meats from area purveyors, along with wines from local vineyards. The fun continues with playful treats for all ages at The Market & Creamery, which is open for select activities including house-made goat-cheese tastings, flights of The Ranch’s signature Swing wine varietals, and even hand-churned ice-cream sundaes. All group activities are limited to six participants for safety guests also can pick up made-to-order picnics, find a cozy, secluded spot, and steal away for a romantic or fun-filled afternoon on their own.

The resort’s spacious guest suites, and majority of studios, are accessed via open-air pathways additionally, each room has its own individual heating and cooling systems that are not connected with adjacent suites.

All aspects of the Carmel Valley Ranch experience have been reimagined to minimize contact while maximizing comfort and convenience, such as digital check-in and a text guest-request system. For information on the new safety measures, visit The resort also has introduced cleaning and service protocols in accordance with state and local authorities, and a cross-functional group of medical experts and industry professionals is providing input as well. All Hyatt properties are taking steps toward certification by the Global Biorisk Advisory Council, with team members completing rigorous health and safety training.

To celebrate the return of guests, all bookings for three nights or more at the resort’s best available rate will receive a one-time $100 resort credit.

Top Five Ways to Relax, Carmel Valley Style

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a hardcore beach lover or not, it’s hard to tear yourself away from scenic Carmel Beach. That usually leads to an afternoon or evening of wandering in Carmel-by-the-Sea. You can’t complain about that–but if you’re up for a relaxing change of pace, head to picturesque Carmel Valley.

Just a short drive from the coast, Carmel Valley has rolling, tree-covered hills, with vineyards and fields also a part of the mix. Wine tasting is quickly becoming a draw in these parts. Just head down East Carmel Valley Road, and you'll find plenty of choices. Stop at a favorite or try something new. At Holman Ranch’s tasting room, visitors can taste wine along with their estate grown and bottled olive oil. Cima Collina’s Howlin’ Good Red benefits the SPCA of Monterey County.

You'll want to take them all home

Take a Walk in the Fields

Along with growing veggies of every color, Earthbound Farm Organic has a flower garden that just might inspire you to get your hands dirty. The fresh cut display in front of the Farm Stand will get your attention, but be sure to wander out back and see all the colors bursting from the fields. The Walking Labyrinth is a fun place to stretch your legs, and kids of all ages love the teepee.

One of Carmel Valley Ranch's inviting swings

Play at the Ranch

When you pull up to the lobby at Carmel Valley Ranch, a set of beautiful tree swings will probably be the first thing you see. Don’t be shy, playing is encouraged here. Inside, check in and say hello to Roxy the English bulldog. Then comes the tough part… figuring out what to do next. Go for a guided hike, take a Hatha Yoga class, maybe even sleep in.

Salt of the Earth

If you were inspired by what you saw at Earthbound Farm, be sure to check out the organic garden tour with Farmer Mark. The garden brims with what he calls “art supplies” for Executive Chef Tim Wood. On the third Saturday of every month, there’s a get-your-hands-dirty gardening class. There’s also a salt house in the garden that produces salt for The Lodge Restaurant and Aiyana Spa, using water from the Monterey Bay.

Do your best to fit a Bee Experience into your schedule. It’s the real deal. Don a bee suit and learn about all the hard work Italian honey bees put into their sticky craft. Keep the sweet theme going after the sun sets with complimentary poolside s’mores at The Lodge.

Relaxation Playground

Make the blow of heading home a little lighter, by seeking Refuge. Based on European roots, it’s the only co-ed relaxation spa in the US. Heat up in the sauna or intense eucalyptus steam room, then cool down in a pool the temperature of the Pacific Ocean. If you’re truly committed to the cause, try a pool the temperature of an icy river. Next, relax in a zero-gravity recliner, or by one of many outdoor fire pits before jumping in a thermal waterfall pool. When you’re finished, do it over and over again. Three hours is the average recharging time, but you can stay as long as you want.

There are some rules you need to know about. Refuge is co-ed, so swimsuits are a must. No electronics and no talking. Bring a pair of flip flops or sandals to wear as you make your way from one spot to the next, and if budget allows, rent a cushy robe. It’ll make you feel good before you step out of the locker room.

Discover Carmel Valley Ranch

Carmel is one of my favorite family getaways. If I didn’t call Northern California Wine Country home, I could easily see myself having a Carmel area code. Locals are lucky. They have mountains and the sea and everything in between. So do visitors who hang their hat at Carmel Valley Ranch.

Readers have been gushing about Carmel Valley Ranch since it got its $35 million makeover. When my family was offered the opportunity to explore the property, I jumped at the chance. Now I can’t wait to go back.

Carmel Valley Ranch entrance

Getting There

Carmel Valley Ranch is little more than 2 hours from San Francisco. It’s a pleasant drive, with plenty of things for the kids to look at as you cruise along. From stunning scenery to horses and cows to old school cherry and garlic stands.

With great family-friendly options like the Tech Museum, Winchester Mystery House and the Children’s Discovery Museum, San Jose makes for a good location to stop and stretch your legs. We were just minutes away but couldn’t resist stopping at Earthbound Farms. There’s always something going on at the Farm Stand. At 11 and 13, my girls still love the Labyrinth and everything in the store looks so fresh and colorful it makes you want to eat your veggies.

You Have Arrived

The Old Gate House serves as a charming introduction to what lies ahead. Slowly make your way past the Golf Clubhouse, Vineyard and Organic Garden. The welcoming committee of deer and wild turkeys almost never take a day off.

About a mile up the road you’ll arrive at the Lodge, but before you check in, swing from the trees on two of their iconic swings scattered throughout the 500 acres property. Once inside the Lodge Roxy the English Bulldog is sure to introduce herself. Her owner, Gabrielle, the Concierge at Carmel Valley Ranch is a good person to make friends with as well.

Invitation to Play

At the heart of every experience you’ll have here is a simple, but powerful idea: Play is essential. It’s universal. Play makes us feel alive, connects us to each other, and comes in all shapes and sizes.

Home Away from Home

The time and thought put into the remodel at Carmel Valley Ranch is apparent in its suites. My family stayed in the Hilltop version of a Ranch Suite. At 800 square feet, it had everything I could have asked for: a comfortable living room with fireplace and large sleeper sofa for the kids, and a large bathroom with a shower, oversized tub and enclosed toilet. Two walls of the master bedroom are sliding glass doors that open to a wrap around deck offering views pictures can’t replicate. The second fireplace in the master bedroom was an unexpected luxury.

There are a number of smaller touches that exude family friendliness. Doors at both ends of the hallway connecting the living room and master bedroom mean the entire family doesn’t have to go to bed at the same time. Nightlights are integrated into bathroom light switches, giving off just the right glow.

The room service menu includes an extensive children’s menu. There is a Blu-ray player in every suite and a complimentary Blu-ray and board game lending library at the Concierge’s Desk.

Guide for Guests at Play

Every evening Carmel Valley Ranch provides a “playlist” to help guests make the most of their stay. Consider yourself forewarned, plans to sleep in may very well get thrown out the window. There’s simply too many choices to list them all, but my family discovered some guaranteed to impress.

Bee Experience

Honey will taste all the more sweeter after you learn the effort busy bees put into it. Resident beekeeper & lavender farmer (more on that later) John Russo takes pride showing off his apiary. Suit up and visit the hives home to 60-thousand Italian honeybees.

Kids as young as three have taken part in the experience. Russo earns kudos for simplifying a complex process into a kid (and parent) friendly presentation. Donning full protective bee gear and getting the opportunity to hold honey combs buzzing with life is something the kids will be bragging about to their friends. My guess is so will the parents.

Lavender Harvest & Distillation

If you are lucky enough to plan it right, you’ll meet Russo again during your time on the Ranch. Founder of Carmel Lavender, he grows more than 7-thousand lavender plants at Carmel Valley Ranch. Armed with a mobile distillery he demonstrates how oil is extracted from the plants. The oil produced at the Ranch is used to make the cosmetic products guests are treated to in their suites. The distillation process is like a giant science project with the added benefit of taking place poolside.

Fitness Hike

The morning hike is worth rolling out of bed early. Starting from the Lodge, you pass by three of the resort’s loved tree swings before arriving at the organic garden. About a mile and a half, it’s not what I would call a strenuous adventure, but you are climbing uphill at a brisk pace. A combination of paved and dirt trails anyone under the age of eight will most likely run out of steam before they make it to the top. At some point you just might share the trail with some wild turkeys, deer or both.

River Ranch Complex

Home to another of the iconic tree swings at Carmel Valley Ranch, the River Ranch Resort serves as a center of sorts for a number of popular family activities. A small playground almost hides in the shadows of a salt-water Junior Olympic Pool, an oversized hot tub, waltzing, run through and get soaked water fountains, bocce ball, basketball and tennis ball courts. Along with a 5,200 square foot fitness center, there is a well stocked café and satellite spa to help parents sneak in a little me time. Everyone in the family can feel spoiled here.

Before I forget there’s also an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Pete Dye. Ranch guests receive a complimentary half-hour lesson during their stay, so it’s a perfect time to get the kids swinging.

With 500 acres to choose from, activities at Carmel Valley Ranch are spread throughout the resort. If your family is energetic, walking is a great way to enjoy the property.

“A deer ran by me and it was almost hip and hip with me when I was walking with my Dad,” said very excited 11-year old Julia from Oak Park, California.

Parking is plentiful throughout the resort, so driving is also an option. If you’d rather drop the keys in a drawer and forget out them, a fleet of minivans shuttle guests around the resort 24 hours a day.

Children’s Activity Center

Parents hoping to get a little time to themselves will appreciate the complimentary Children’s Activity Center. Offered seven days a week during the summer and most holidays and weekends year round, it’s a fun, safe area for kids ages 5-14 to hang out at night. From 5pm to 9pm they can play games, do crafts or just relax and watch a movie. Parents are asked to leave a cell phone number and stay on the property. Bottom line, it makes an adult-only dinner possible for many parents.

Great Location

Carmel Ranch has the best of both worlds when it comes to location. It’s tucked away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, yet minutes from endless options. If the world renown Monterey Bay Aquarium is on your itinerary, you’ll be happy to know it’s just a 20 minute drive. Short enough to prevent the “Are we there yet?” scenario, but a long enough trip home to encourage a nap in the backseat. Downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and the beach is a mere 15 minutes away. The hardest part really, pulling yourself away from this 500 acre playground for all ages.
