We had a glorious time at this perfect little oasis surrounded by the lush gardens and lapping Pacific Ocean. The breakfast was delicious! We could not have asked for more. Thank you for having us.

With sincere thanks,

We have arrived! This place is beautiful.
A small piece of heaven is what I would call it. The ambiance here is quite delightful with the lush gardens that welcome you when you enter. The warmth you feel as you walk through the door is wonderful. I cannot wait to come back, and next time as a new wed. #engaged
Thank you for a wonderful few days here at Lincoln Green Inn. Breakfast and tea were delicious. What an amazing garden you have here. Also a quiet place! Just a short walk to the sea. Thank you for a welcoming stay.
So impressed with this wonderful little world. We will be back!
Everything at the cottage was as great as always. Been coming here for about a decade or more. Always happy!! Love all the remodels! I’ve been coming here since the late 1960’s!!
We were extremely impressed with the service. It made us feel like we were living a fairy tale. Comfortable beds and awesome blueberry muffins. We felt right at home. And it helped make our vacation special.
Gorgeous gardens and we had good times!!
It was our privilege and pleasure to stay in such an enchanted cottage with such magical grounds. A perfect escape that felt like home.
Smith – Back again to such a wonderful place!!
4 wonderful days and nights at our very favorite place. We have been coming here since we were young and good looking! Now were old but still enjoy every minute! Thank you for making our visit as great as ever.

What a pleasant surprise upon arrival. A lovely wedding anniversary spent in never never land. Just like home with no work. No rushing, no demands. Would stay here again. Please do not change one thing. Updates are perfect. Bed is so comfortable. Gardens are exquisite! All employees were as nice as could be.
We had a fabulous time in Carmel. We feel so fortunate to have stumbled upon your beautiful inn. It was everything we could have hope for!! We hope to be returning guests in the future. =]

Our Labor Day weekend started as a camping trip in our teardrop camper. At a local campground (no names but here are the initials, SMR) and our site was sardined between a 35 foot RV, the office, the common fireplace and bathroom, showers, and zero privacy!! By 1030PM the fireplace was full of extremely loud, cigarette smoking, drunks and the toddler next to us cried until midnight. (All of this for 75 dollars a night!!) My husband suggested trying to find a room for the next 2 nights but it seemed unlikely on a holiday weekend. He called Lincoln Green Inn and pounced on the opportunity to stay. God, what a relief to get out of camping hell! Luckily, we could afford it and it’s like staying in a tiny cottage paradise! Justin was also a great host for us. We left the teardrop at the campsite and will it up before we leave. 75 night storage was a bit pricey! Lesson learned and SMR never again!! Lincoln Green Inn is our new escape!! We will be back!

What a place! Staycation at its best! We live in a 20 foot camper in Carmel valley and taking a break from being displaced by waking up to smoke and ash from Soberanes fire. Celebrating our 1 year anniversary as well! Couldn’t be more grateful for this right now.

Still as magical a place as it was in the 1990’s!! Maybe even more now! We will return soon!

The cottages here at Lincoln Green Inn…. childhood, fairytales, and storybook charm! An unmatched hideaway from the pressure of todays stressed out society!
Love it! We will be back soon!
We have been looking for a second home here in Carmel by the sea. However after this trip, we decided to call Lincoln Green Inn home!!! We’ll be booking our trip for the next month as soon we get home!

It was a big surprise to see such a lovely cottage in a late evening. The receptionist was so nice to leave the key and a welcome letter at the door. It was even more surprising when we saw the inside of the rooms. We had a peaceful night here with the fire on. So warm and so nice! Very memorable evening and experience. Spring 2016

Here we are again in Lovely Carmel, here for our anniversary!
Looking back, we were in this same cottage in 2012 and Little John. It's a great place to get away and relax and walk along the beach and discover a new restaurant in town. We met some lovely people sharing some wine by the fireplace each night before we had dinner!

First time here and was very surprised and fell in love with the Robin Hood Cottage. Such a great and comfortable feeling. Cleaning and hospitality crew were awesome along with the continuing breakfast. Love the grounds and overall atmosphere. Being able to bring our furry friends along made the trip all the more better. Thank you Lincoln Green Inn.
Love the Card family and the Friedman Family.

Really enjoyed our week here at Lincoln Green Inn. Hadn't been to Carmel for several years. Stayed here then too! Love what you've done to the inn. The grounds and the cottage remodel. The staff who handles the garden is a big plus! Last stay, we had to pick up the keys from the Vagabond in downtown Carmel. We had such a relaxing and wonderful time. We will be back soon.

Thank you for a beautiful stay!
We enjoyed opera singing in the morning, harbor seals and otters at Point Lobos, sandwiches from Deli on 5th street, Hoebach-Riley wedding, and the big black cat.
This is like a little paradise.

September- 2015 Friar Tuck
What a Magical place! I absolutely loved the experience. We barbequed the first evening and ate in our secret garden. The weather was flawless with blue skies every day! Thanks for getting that just right, especially for us! I think the best part of our stay was when every evening someone would blurt out "Hmm, I wonder what time it is." And we would all chime "Who cares?!" Lincoln Green Inn does a great job of allowing us to just steal away into a magical time and place. I loved the stay with my mom and sister. Hope to be back!
September- 2015 Robin Hood
Many thanks for your arrangement. We like it here very much. We would like to be back!

Really enjoyed our stay in Little John. We especially appreciate the thoughtful amenities; cozy bed, great lighting, well stocked kitchen and the beautiful gardens. What a treat! Looking forward to our next stay.
Another wonderful stay in the most charming, clean and comfortable get away spot on earth! Thanks to the entire staff and managers for their thoughtful great care!
We loved our visit in Robin Hood. From the beautiful gardens to the luxurious down comforters and bed linens, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in your charming bed and breakfast. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

I love the fact that Lincoln Green Inn is dog friendly! My grandma's dog can actually come on vacation with us. It is so relaxing to soak in the tub and climb into bed with my book and your excellent chocolates. My favorite part is when you put out refreshments. Your cookies are the best! I liked them so much and ate them all!
