  • Bernardus Lodge is a cozy retreat set in the vineyards and mountains of idyllic Carmel Valley. Although the property is a well-known romantic getaway, in recent years kids are frequent guests, particularly over the summer months. A few key amenities make it fun for them including an expansive croquet lawn and a lovely swimming pool. There is also a wonderful outdoor dining area. Those seeking quiet and romance still find it in the adult-only spa and the award-winning Marinus restaurant. In addition to the spectacular scenery, one nice benefit of Carmel Valley is that it is often sunny when the coast is foggy, yet this location still provides easy access to the Monterey Peninsula’s numerous attractions for kids.
