Our Carmel-By-The-Sea Bed and Breakfast

Leave the hustle and bustle of city life and escape to our charming bed and breakfast by the ocean. Since 1927, The Carmel Green Lantern Inn has been welcoming guests to our serene getaway on one of the most beautiful beaches along the California coast.

Accommodations and Amenities

With seventeen charming rooms divided between six beautiful cottages, our accommodations combine the warm comfort of Monterey homes with the luxurious lodgings of a locally owned inn. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere ensures privacy while affording guests the convenience of remaining within walking distance of the ocean, and our rooms look out onto lush redwood and cypress trees as well as flowers and fountains. To see our lodgings up close, check out our photo gallery.

World famous for its beauty and its picturesque white-sand beaches, the Carmel beach is only four blocks, 777 steps, from the location of our inn. Historic downtown Carmel, which features an array of boutique shops, restaurants, and one-of-a-kind art galleries, is only a short walk away. A ten-minute drive will take visitors to excursions and entertainment such as Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row, and Fisherman’s Wharf.


We encourage guests seeking a personalized touch and a memorable Carmel experience to book their rooms early, as our lodgings may sell out during peak season from June to October. Ask about our promotions, including our manager’s specials and last-minute specials. We also offer packages for the aquarium, whale watching, golf, kayaking, and sailing as well as romance getaways,┬ábirthday packages, and spa packages.

Whether you are visiting Carmel for the natural and scenic beaches or the rich artistic history, the staff at The Carmel Green Lantern Inn extends a warm welcome. The friendly team at our cozy bed and breakfast is composed of local enthusiasts who are passionate about the area, and we are more than willing to answer any questions you have.
