Svendsgaard’s Inn bills itself as the pet-friendliest hotel in Carmel-by-the-Sea, with leashes, dog beds, water bowls and daily treats all provided for your furry companion. You can also take your dog for a walk around the inn’s grounds, Forest Hill Park nearby or the dog-friendly Carmel Beach. Humans are looked after pretty well here, too, with most of the 35 suites and guest rooms coming with garden courtyard or pool views. Many have kitchenettes, spa tubs and fireplaces. You can also enjoy discounts at several restaurants in Carmel, many of them pet-friendly, too – try Enzo between Ocean Avenue and 7th Avenue for mouthwatering Calabrian cuisine that takes full advantage of the local seafood.
