Monterey Wine Country Hotels
Every hotel we list was personally recommended by local winemakers.
- Carmel Valley area -
Nestled among the oaks and vineyards of scenic Carmel Valley, savor the gracious intimacy of a resort with epicurean flair. Feather beds, cozy fireplaces and oversized bathtubs for two. Vintage wine and cheese welcome. A "wine grotto" mini bar. The spa's meditation garden, warming room and soaking pool. And dining at Marinus, voted one of the Zagat's top restaurants in the Bay Area.

Tickle Pink Inn
A Carmel oceanfront hotel dramatically situated above the rocky coastline that stands at the gateway to world-famous Big Sur. Let yourself be pampered with every amenity… from cozy European bedding and private decks with sweeping views to homemade breakfast pastries and an evening wine & cheese reception with soothing classical music.
Our spectacular site on the cliffs above the Carmel coastline was originally home to State Senator Edward and Mrs. Bess Tickle.
A great lover of flowers, particularly the pink varieties, Mrs. Tickle favored a suggestion to name their hillside stone cottage
‘Tickle Pink,’ which they had inscribed on a wooden plaque that hung above their door. The enchanting stone cottage has long since disappeared, but the name and its traditions happily remain.
Our Carmel oceanfront hotel offers a taste of heaven that’s definitely down-to-earth. Established and independently operated by the
Gurries family since 1956, the Inn has earned a reputation for gracious hospitality, gracious elegance, and attentive service.
