A Family Vacation in Carmel, California

We were hosted by the Hofsas House Hotel on our wonderful trip. All opinions are 100% mine. 

We LOVE to travel as a family! We’re one of those multigenerational traveling families. We bring my mom along because she’s the best and have such a fun time! I’m always grateful for another adult to help with our three daughters. Our last vacation was a road trip up to Carmel, California, the most perfect little beach town there ever was.

Hofsas House Hotel

Our home base for our trip was the Hofsas House Hotel. Families, especially if you’re traveling with little ones, you have to check this hotel out! It is charming, warm, and inviting.Multi Generational Family Travel Trip to Carmel CaliforniaMulti Generational Family Travel Trip to Carmel California

They have family suites with separate rooms so that baby can take a nap or kids can go to sleep earlier than the adults. Then the grown ups can do puzzles! We bought this one at Thomas Kinkade’s gallery and it was so much fun to do. Poor Ada & Lola thought it was for them! My mom and I are puzzle obsessed.

Lugano Swiss Bistro

And ate fondue at Lugano Swiss Bistro for dinner! It was delicious and we were SO full afterward. We had cheese fondue and then chocolate fondue for dessert.

The girls loved being so interactive with their food! It was a fun, family-friendly restaurant. Look at the size of that pepper mill! Multi Generational Family Travel Trip to Carmel California

 

5th Avenue Deli

No trip to Carmel would be complete without going down to the beach. We ate our chicken curry sandwiches from the 5th Avenue Deli and then walked along the beach. My mom and I found a bunch of pretty beach wood for the built-in shelves in my new house!Multi Generational Family Travel Trip to Carmel CaliforniaMulti Generational Family Travel Trip to Carmel CaliforniaThe perfect coastal getaway. Love you, Carmel…until next time!
