Stonepine Estate (both as a hotel and a venue)
Many resorts seem to be nestled somewhere, and The Stonepine Estate is no exception. “Nestled” on 330 acres in Carmel Valley, the Estate (as a hotel) features an eight-bedroom chateau and three houses, totaling 16 guest rooms. The estate offers a very high-level of service combined with creativity and friendliness, and is a perfect venue for Board meetings and retreats.
As a venue (regardless of whether you are staying there or at another property), they can accommodate groups up to 250 and do all sorts of themed parties and events (my personal experience there involved a private demonstration of amazing horsemanship… combined with a delicious BBQ). Besides the western themes easily incorporated into their equestrian center, other, more elegant settings are a natural for Great Gatsby type events (or other themes in which people pretend to be rich and carefree). Anyway, whatever the theme, they are good there. www.stonepineestate.com
