Lamp Lighter Inn in Carmel, Ca

Does anyone know about this inn? I can't find a single review of it anywhere on the internet (except for the usual marketing blurbs).

If I am not mistaken I stayed there on my honeymoon 50 years ago...no kidding. I notice that it isn't listed in AAA anymore. I certainly can't tell you what it is like now, but, if this is the place, it was in a good location....no views, however. It was quaint then. I assume you have tried Trip Advisor?

I just looked at the website for the Lamplighter Inn. Yep, that's the place. We stayed in the Treetop Room. It hasn't changed much except for the furnishings, etc. What memories.....<grin>

We stayed in Carmel on our Honeymoon many years ago at a place called The Jade Tree Inn. It was Japanese in design with fireplaces, and a girl in a Kimono, brought breakfast up on a tray.
I just tried looking it up, after the mention of old places, and it does not come up. Does anyone know if it was renamed or torn down? It was almost 40 years ago.

MBNancy,...I remember the Jade Tree Inn. It is not listed in AAA, nor is there a review of it in Trip Advisor.

I checked Trip Advisor and the inn itself didn't have a review (which I found odd), and there were only 2 mentions of it in all of the forums - and those just listed the name with no review.

Tonscamo,

Thank you for the heads up. I looked in my Wedding scrapbook and saw it was a Best Western then, also, located on Junipero. It is the BW Carmel Bay View Inn, now! Checked out their website, and it's the same place, but now has 80's country furniture decor. Not as impressive as it was then.

Thanks, always fun to find out a place is still around.

xene97, sorry to post on your thread. I know The Lamp Lighter Inn is in the Karen Brown guide. We use her suggestions, and they are top notch.
