Clint Eastwood owns Mission Ranch in Carmel! This is an awesome hotel in Carmel. \"Hotel\" doesn\'t properly describe it. It\'s a set of restored, swanky farmhouses out in an open part of Carmel. It looks onto the lowlands of a river and beyond, at Point Lobos. The views are awesome and it is a very short walk to a great beach. The continental breakfast (included) is one of the best ever. The rooms have fireplaces and big tubs with jets. This is a very nice place to get-away and it is about a mile outside of town.
Driving Directions: What Google fails to mention is that Junipero Ave. turns into Rio Rd. at a crazy angle before it crosses Dolores. The quickest way is by exiting CA-1 South and taking a right onto Ocean Ave. Go straight into downtown Carmel and make a left at Dolores, the street the Ranch is located on. The restaurant gets five stars on its own. Best service and the mushroom pasta is one of the top-five best meals you\'ll ever have.
