Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Little John and Maid Marian in Carmel-by-the Sea?
I am quite taken with the Bed and Breakfasts integrated into my neighborhood. What could be better?
Bed and Breakfast Cottages!! How very Carmel.
These little cottages would have seemed “out of town” when they were built in 1925. Now they are considered close to everything. They sit between Carmel Beach and the Carmel River Beach.
“A historic bed and breakfast built in 1925, delivers one to the enchanted era of Shakespearean England. Enter the lush English country gardens and be enveloped by a delightful visual banquets of flowers, lawns and ancient trees.” gushes one reviewer.
A little “over the top” for me, but not too far off.
This is what I see as I stand wistfully outside the picket fence.
Of course this requires a closer look. I note the sign that asks me not to disturb the guests and meander quietly down the path. The four cottages sit in a square divided by paths , lawns and flower beds.
The first cottage to my right is Robin Hood , the leader of the gang.
How I would love to get a peek inside. But ever mindful of the “do not disturb the guests” sign, I content myself with viewing the interiors on the Inn’s wonderful website.
Behind him is Friar Tuck. I must admit the Friar is my favorite to photograph. Maybe its the angles I can get. But this is the one I would want to stay in.
What does it look like inside?
Little John anchors a corner on the other side.
And last , but not least , is Maid Marion.
She is conveniently located next to the office which sports a pretty patio where afternoon wine and cheese are served in the gardens. If I take a late afternoon walk, I can hear the chatter of voices and the clink of glasses. Delicious sounds.
I find that Continental Breakfast of orange juice,breads, butter and jams, cereal, fruit and yogurt is served to the room every morning. Wow! Each cottage has its own little deck so I could eat breakfast overlooking the garden.
And they allow dogs. OK, Anita this is the place I am going to recommend to you and your husband when you insist on bringing our both your English Bulldog and the Labradoodle.
