at Bernardus Lodge
Ben Pon, owner of Bernardus Winery, one of the finest wineries in the world, built this Lodge and Restaurant.
We have been here for dinner and lunch. The weather was beautiful and the service was superb. Everyone was doing whatever they could to be friendly and have you like them and Bernardus Lodge. Food was great. Wine list mostly Carmel Valley (tip, if the wine label has "Monterey" on it, the grape is not from Carmel Valley, even if the winery is located there. Look for the "Carmel Valley" vineyard grape. Bernardus Winery is right near by as well as Talbott and many other wonderful wineries ( look at the label, their "Monterey" is the lower end, and when the grapes are from "Carmel Valley," this is their top end).
All 57 rooms include a stone fireplace, French doors, private deck, double bathtub, feather bed, and wine pantry. There is a full service spay and salon. Chef is award winning Cal Stamenov form the Highlands Inn. Very nice wine steward and sommelier. Four meeting rooms for 10 t0 200 guess. There is a wedding pavilion in an intimate garden setting that seats up to 150 people. The adjacent ballroom with a faulted 22-foot ceiling is ideal for receptions ranging from 75 to 150 people. Of note, while many places do not do this, the Bernardus Lodge allows only one wedding per day.
