Quail Lodge

The Quail Lodge is perfectly located in the sunny Carmel Valley, and has become a favored romantic escape destination on California's west coast since it's reopening in March, 2013 after an extensive 28 million dollar renovation.

The results have been stunning, and the lodge now draws seasoned visitors from all around the world for it's relaxed, quiet and serence setting.

Nestled on 850 lush acres in the oak studded foothills that back up to the Santa Lucia mountain range, and away from the summer fog that sometimes haunts visitors to Carmel or Monterey, your are instantly seduced by the calmness of the verdant fairways and vintage oak trees that dot the landscape.

Restful And Idyllic Accommodations At Quail Lodge

Quail Lodge has always been about capturing the best of California ranch architecture and the new decor with rich warm tones of gold, clearly emphasises that style along with their reputation for pampered attention.

Large rooms with pitched wood ceilings, seperate shower and huge bath tubs, golf course views, and patio rooms with private decks and Adirondack chairs, make this a truly relaxing place to set aside your concerns about daily stresses for awhile

There are about 90 rooms that include 14 suites.

Hardwood floors and designer furnishings, pillow top mattresses, and down comforters guarantee you of a peaceful sleep. Heated floors in the bathrooms, and large windows make a stay here something that causes many visiors to return again and again.

Rack rates are $225 and up, and suites are a little more at $325 and up. Watch for specials as I have seen rates as low as $155 a night.

The lodge is really a perfect place for a starry-eyed getaway or a special occassions like a birthday, anniversary or other milestone event.

There is no spa here but ask about their "Refuge" package that includes your accommodations and a day at the Refuge spa just a few minutes away. Imagine outdoor fireplaces, plunge pools and a Scandanavian approach to total spa relaxation ... this is complete and total relaxation.

Mature Landscaping With Heritage Oak Trees 

During the remodel, architects and landscape designers were careful to maintain the mature landscaping of the lodge and the golf course. Huge heritage oak trees, lakes, brif=dges nd walkways were key aspects of the reedsign.

It's peaceful to walk along the path to your room and there are hiking trails if you think you might enjoy a short hike together.

Edgars Restaurant At The Lodge

Edgars Right On The Golf Course

Edgars Restaurant  is a wonderful restaurant for lunch or dinner if you want to stay close to the lodge.

This is a "Club" restaurant and there are ample decks outside where you can enjoy a meal and watch the action on the putting greens and distant fairways.

The fare is limited but ideal for lunch.

Green umbrellas shield you from the sun and adds to the tranquil feeling here.

The clam chowder with bacon is not to be missed as is the grass fed burger and fries or onion rings.



Edgars is an organic and sustainable restaurant so much of the produce and meat used in the restaurant are from local farms and ranches.

Favorites at Edgars include: 

  • The grass fed burger @$16
  • Large ravoli and foraged mushrooms @ $18
  • Live rod caught fresh fish @$28
  • Bowl of onion rings @ $9

Edgar's is also celebrating 50 years at Quail Lodge, and has a dinner special that includes salad and soup, an entree for two and dessert all for a $50 bill. If you decide to stay at the lodge and don't want to venture outside the valley, the special is a reasonably affordable dining option.


Hours:

Happy hour 4 to 6 Pm

Lunch 11 to 5 and dinner 5 to 9 Pm.

  • My recommendation is to have the burger and onion rings and maybe the beet salad  for lunch, and check out the restaurants in Monterey for more adventure. If you really want an interesting dining experience, plan on a visit to Restaurant 1833 in the historic section of Monterey for a clever approach to intimate dining. 


The Lounge Bar And Fireplace

Before your dinner reservations, stop in at the lounge at the lodge for some light appetizers and a beverage. It's a very amorous setting, especially when the fireplace is roaring and you might find yourselves spending more time here in long conversation and forget about dinner.

Stunning Location For A Romantic Wedding

Beautiful Bride Just After Her Wedding Ceremony

Quail Meadows is a very private part of the real estate development that includes the lodge, and is an ideal perfectly quiet and serene setting for a fabulous wedding. The meadow is part of a gated area not open to the public, and includes a large lake, rolling oak tree studded hillsides, and even about a dozen ducks.

There is a beautiful barn structure in Quail Meadows or the wedding party can make use of the Quail Lodge Country Club Ballroom overlooking the golf course. Ask your wedding represenative to show you the videos taken of weddings held here in the past, so you get a perfect idea of how everything will look.
