Romance and Christmas Magic Found at our Monterey Bed and Breakfast!

Romance at our Monterey Bed and BreakfastA few months ago we at the Old Monterey Inn posted a blog about the cutest couple who had just gotten engaged at our romantic Monterey Bed and Breakfast. This past week, we were honored to have them return to enjoy a luxurious Honeymoon in the very same room that they had gotten engaged in, the Brighstone Suite at our Monterey Bay Bed and Breakfast. The newlyweds, Mr. and Mrs. Joel and Paula Hamilton, were treated to our fabulous Ultimate Luxury Package, which includes an unforgettable limousine driven Wine Tour through the beautiful Carmel Valley, a romantic Couples Massage by firelight in our elegant Spa Room, fantastic dining packages, and more! I believe their Honeymoon Getaway was a huge success, and a memorable event for the new couple. We will certainly look forward to seeing them on an anniversary in the years to come!

I also would like to thank everyone who made our “Christmas at the Inns” event such a wonderful success. Our Monterey Bed and Breakfast is beautifully decorated for the holidays, and we received innumerable compliments on the decorations, ambiance created by the elegant Christmas songs played by Mr. Michael Martinez (the celebrated pianist from the Big Sur Marathon for you runners out there!), and of course, our freshly baked cookies! With the holiday decorations in place, and our warm fireplaces awaiting you, this is the perfect time to get away from your holiday stress, and enjoy a little pampering at the Old Monterey Inn.

We are currently offering our lowest seasonal rates, and we would love to have you keep us company this winter! Please give us a call or check our website for availability.

Don’t forget what a great present it would be for the people on your list to receive a Gift Certificate from the Old Monterey Inn!! We will take good care of them, we promise!!

Have a wonderful Holiday Season,




Monterey Events: “Christmas at the Inns”

Monterey Events: Christmas at the InnsWe hope everyone enjoyed a fantastic Thanksgiving Holiday. We at our Monterey Bed and Breakfast had plenty to give thanks for this year, most importantly all of the wonderful guests who spend time with us at our beautiful Old Monterey Inn throughout the year. The holidays are steeped in traditions for most families, and for us at the Old Monterey Inn one of our favorite traditions is, of course, the long awaited opportunity to deck the halls.    

In the first week of December, Monterey is home to an event called Christmas at the Inns. During this festive event, participants are chauffeured around to the numerous inns and bed & breakfasts that host Monterey’s international clientele. During the week between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas at the Inns, we go all out!  Along with our traditional Christmas décor, we also break out the winter recipes!  Expect delectable Christmas themed cookies and refreshments, elegant and nostalgic holiday music, and a breathtaking adorned pine in our cozy living room. Nothing warms the soul like curling up with a loved one next to our wood burning fireplaces with a steaming mug of herbal tea or a great glass of wine from one of our fantastic local wineries from the Carmel Valley.  

Christmas at the Inns is a great way to get in the holiday spirit, and it is one of our favorite holiday Monterey events! If you are fortunate enough to be a resident of the area, this is a great opportunity to check out your local hospitality businesses in full swing!  The dates for this memorable event are December 4th and 5th from 6:00 to 9:00 pm each evening; the Old Monterey Inn is participating on Wednesday the 5th. The Pacific Grove Chamber of Commerce website provides ticket and registration information!

If you’re looking for yourself or for another, we do have gift certificates available for purchase. Giving the gift of ultimate elegance and relaxation is truly priceless! Keep an eye out for our monthly specials and our low seasonal rates!!
