A Green Initiative


Carmel Valley remains a rustic, working valley that retains its symbiotic relationship with the land. It offers the best of country living with its casual sprawl of farms, ranches, golf courses and, of course, vineyards. Much of the region is still rugged wilderness, and the hills are alive with wildlife.

We believe it’s everyone’s responsibility to conserve these natural resources. With being a green hotel in Carmel Valley, we’re committed to reducing our overall carbon footprint while promoting sustainable choices and alternatives. We hope our beliefs will resonate with you and prompt you to think green.

Supporting local businesses is a sustainable practice that sets a positive example by reducing fuel consumption and the need for shipped goods.
