Mission Ranch – Carmel, California

Clint Eastwood’s Mission Ranch Hotel

Sing at the Piano Bar at the Mission Ranch in Carmel. If you love to sing, like I do, practice the words to Fly Me to the Moon, Sweet Caroline, American Pie and Volare before you head to the fabulous piano bar at the Mission Ranch in Carmel. There’s plenty of opportunity to sing along, and maybe Clint will join in for a song or two.

The historic Mission Ranch, one of the most spectacular spots on the Monterey Peninsula has exquisite, unrivaled views: meadows stretch to the south, joining the wetlands and the Carmel River Beach. Point Lobos can be seen in the distance across the bay. … The ranch has had some 17 owners. It operated as a private club, then as officers’ club for the Army and Navy during World War II. At that time the windows were occasionally blackened against a possible Japanese landing. It was owned in those days by the Dienelt family, who had the ranch for 39 years. It had a rollicking reputation, with dance bands and a lively bar scene. … Clint Eastwood bought the Ranch in 1986, rescuing the property from an impending fate as a condominium development. He sought out the best craftsmen for renovation, who have replicated moldings, doorframes, and hardware to match the style of the original buildings.

Thirty one unique rooms, many with ocean views, Fireplaces and jacuzzi tubs.

    Beautiful facility at Mission Ranch – we stayed during the AT&T (don’t ask me how we were able to reserve it). We also loved the more resort-like feel of Carmel Valley Ranch too. For our wedding we ended up staying in the Bay Area and had a wonderful venue at The Bridges Golf Club.

    I’m jealous – staying at the Mission Ranch during the AT&T would be a dream come true! Every night singing at the piano bar with Clint and Bill Murray …
