3 meals/day are provided at the cafeteria.



Carmel Valley is always (don’t hold us to this) sunny.  Mornings and evenings are a bit chilly...delightful sweater weather.  Be sure to bring a jacket.  Good walking shoes are a must.  The charming Village of Carmel Valley (one-half mile away) is a small, friendly community that offers several restaurants, a small library, lots of wineries, and provides most of the services you might need.  Public tennis courts are close by, as is a municipal pool, open in the summer.  The nearest laundromat is five miles away at the mid-valley shopping center.  Garland Ranch Regional Park, a few miles away, offers hundreds of acres suitable for hiking, photography, horseback riding, jogging, walking, bird watching, painting and simple solitude.
