The Normandy Inn
Could you cozy up in a Carmel cottage during your cruise through California? The Normandy Inn will have a private three-bedroom home ready before you can say comfortable cottage in Carmel three times fast. Tongue-twisters aside, this boutique hotel is just five blocks from the beach and five steps from the outdoor pool. Whenever the sun starts playing peekaboo behind the clouds, you can enjoy a shady hike at Point Lobos within an 11-minute drive.
