Mission Ranch Bliss

If you've ever been to Carmel you know it's an incredibly beautiful place. I often go with my family because it's just 30 minutes down the coast and it's a perfect weekend day trip. We'll stop by the white sand beach, then pop over to Casanova for lunch and finally make our way to the outdoor shops for a longer than expected 'browse' at J. Crew & Anthropologie. One of my absolute favorite places right outside of the adorable downtown area is the Mission Ranch Inn, which overlooks the pastures and the ocean in an idyllic setting. It is honestly the best place to watch the sunset after a beautiful day in Carmel. I went with my parents a few weekends ago when we were settling in back in Santa Cruz, and I already want to go back!

Here's the view from the patio...look closely and you can almost see the ocean in the distance.
The lush flowers and slab stones make for a beautiful environment.
Love the rustic touches that make you feel a bit like you're on a farm.
Just me with the sheep in the background...I wasn't kidding about the farm-like setting.
A few cheeky glasses of Central Coast Chardonnay to unwind.

I'm already looking forward to our next trip down to Carmel so we can enjoy this place again!
