I have shared with you my many trips and love of Carmel and Monterey. I just can’t get enough of 17-Mile Drive and any opportunity to visit Carmel, I am there. Before we completely leave the holiday season, we took a visit to The Lodge at Pebble Beach in December with my parents. Of course, The Lodge did not disappoint with their stunning views and beautiful, classic seasonal decor. Considering room rates, menu prices seemed very reasonable and it would be an excellent place to stop for lunch or a cocktail with breathtaking views.
