L'Auberge Carmel, a Relais & Chateaux property, is located in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, one block from Ocean Avenue on Monte Verde at Seventh Street and four blocks from world famous Carmel Beach. Since its founding in 1903, the quaint village of Carmel, has been recognized as a picturesque pine-forested coastal retreat, and become well known, internationally, as an artists' colony.
L'Auberge Carmel is a beautiful three-story European-style building designed around a classic brick courtyard. The twenty guest rooms are luxuriously appointed with an elegant décor.
Originally built in 1929, the classic inn was commissioned by Allen Knight, one of early Carmel's most colorful figures. Knight hired well-known San Francisco architect Albert Farr for the project, whose other work includes Jack London's first home "Glen Allyn" in Sonoma County. Carmel's master-builder Michael J. Murphy did the construction himself. The collaboration resulted in a three-story wood frame and stucco building that captures the historic Carmel aesthetic of a small forested hamlet by the sea.
L'Auberge is proud to offer guests valet parking, room service, highly polished and personalized guest services, plus Aubergine, a highly acclaimed on-site restaurant.
