Nestled right in between Monterrey and Carmel by the Sea is a little town called Pacific Grove. It is brilliant because it often gets skipped by tourists for its better known neighbors, making it the preferred spot to stay for local weekenders. It is within easy biking distance from the famous Monterrey Bay Aquarium and sits along its own beautiful piece of coast. Ben & I headed there for the weekend to stay at the adorable St. Angela Inn. It sits just a few blocks back from the coast which meant plenty of parking!
Breakfast was served each morning is a lovely sun room that sat overlooking the garden.
Ben & I opted to take our breakfast out into the garden instead. It was full of quiet little nooks and crannies. I loved sitting there each morning listening to the fountain gurgle & the birds chirp. It was a very peaceful spot.
The rooms were decorated in traditional Victorian style decor. The working fireplace warmed up cool evenings, while the big windows allowed a lovely morning breeze to float in.
Our room even featured an additional bed in case you were traveling with your family. For me, it made a lovely spot to lay out my outfits for the weekend!
I felt right at home here! I could get used to falling asleep to the sound of a fire crackling, then waking up to the smell of a fresh breakfast and taking off for a daily walk on the beach!
As I mentioned, the coast was just a few blocks away from our Bed & Breakfast. We walked down in the morning. The Monterrey Bay Aquarium was a short bike ride or a 30 minute walk along the water away.
We kept our eyes peeled for sea otters bobbing around in the waves, but mostly we just strolled along, soaking in the natural beauty of this little town.
Check back next week for the famous Monterrey Bay Aquarium, my favorite in the world!
