Cypress Inn

Old-world appeal crossed with California cool.

Seven blocks from the white sands of Carmel beach, the Cypress Inn charms its guest with warm décor and first-rate services. Plush robes and daily newspaper delivery? Check. Fresh flowers and fruit and complementary cream sherry? Check. Proximity to one of the most beautiful coastlines in the country? Check.

Rooms so nice, even leaving for the beach is a tough call.

What it's like

At this Euro-style getaway, rooms boast private verandas for sipping coffee or wine al fresco, cozy fireplaces for those chilly sea-spray evenings, and a lovely terracotta courtyard perfect for staging a walk around Carmel. 

Independent spirit

A dose of elegance in a coastal dream town 

Small touches

Live music attracts guests and locals alike at Terry's Lounge. 

Eat and drink

Among other connotations, Mae West's famous line "you ought to get out of those wet clothes and into a dry martini" sums up the transition from beach to bar in Carmel. At the Cypress's own Terry's Lounge, guests can imbibe on classic cocktails and local California wine, and dine on sesame-seared tuna and other first-rate Cali-inspired comestibles.

And more

Doris Day. The Hollywood-famous co-owner of the Cypress Inn is a huge animal rights enthusiast and set the standard for pet-friendly lodging before pet-friendly lodging was on the radar. Spoiler: there will be dogs.
