Discover the allure of old world charm masterfully blended with modern comforts, nestled in the heart of the quaint seaside village of Carmel, California. Cypress Inn has been Carmel-by-the-Sea’s landmark boutique hotel since 1929 and combines Mediterranean grace with warm hospitality.
Cypress Inn welcomes not only our guests, but also their animal friends. We firmly believe that pets are an integral part of the family. Pets may join their humans throughout the hotel, in the cozy living room for afternoon tea, or in our charming courtyard for breakfast or evening appetizers.
Terry’s Restaurant & Lounge serves lunch and dinner each evening, and attracts a colorful combination of locals, guests and canines. Our menu draws on the bounty of fresh local produce found here in the Salinas Valley, with flavorful hints of the Mediterranean and Morocco. Terry’s provides a perfect gathering place to enjoy small plates and family-style dishes in an intimate surrounding, with attentive service, classic cocktails and a great selection of wines.
Cypress Inn is committed to daily business practices that are gentle to the environment, including an extensive recycle program. Our restaurant is the first and only in Carmel to join the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch program, which encourages sustainable fishing practices. We purchase locally and organically whenever possible and we seek to partner with businesses that share our environmental awareness.
Cypress Inn’s co-owners Doris Day and Dennis LeVett deliver a unique experience in a refined yet relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of the classic elegance of yesteryear sure to lure you back again and again.
