cypress inn and mission ranch

while visiting the monterey peninsula, we HAD to stop in at the cypress inn. it is a super-duper dog friendly hot spot in carmel-by-the-sea. have you heard about it? let me give you a clue as to who owns it. take a look at the poster behind me . . . yep, it's doris day! (love her)

did you notice i am indoors, at the bar, with my dog? yes, dogs are allowed in the bar, in the restaurant, in the hotel, in the lounge, just about everywhere! we were not confined to only the patio area. and it doesn't matter what size dog you have either. there were small, medium and large dogs everywhere; and all were relatively well behaved. i think i only heard a couple of barks, and yes, one of them was aoife. that was the only mischief here.

front entrance

beautiful & welcoming entryway

terry's lounge is named after her son.

haha, get it? please don't eat the daisies.

next time we are in town, we are staying here for sure.

oh, and we also passed by clint eastwood's mission ranch. it is a sprawling 22 acre resort. there was no way i could photograph the whole thing so here is just a teeny taste.

ya, those are sheep, living the high life with dirty harry himself.
