in Monterey & Carmel
Making your day at Dirty Harry's coastal ranch.
The former mayor of Carmel and longtime movie star Clint Eastwood owns this restored cattle ranch on land encircling the Carmel Mission. Eight different accommodations are spread out between the "rustic" bunkhouse, the circa-1850 farmhouse and a newer building that overlooks the meadow. The newest rooms boast fireplaces, whirlpool tubs and private patio decks or balconies. All guests receive complimentary breakfast. Elsewhere on property, there are eight tennis courts for recreation, and a restaurant and piano bar for entertainment. Many nights the property welcomes live music into the former cow barn, as well. Nature trails crisscross the resort's twenty acres, and it's just a short walk to a terrific white sand beach.
