CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA, CALIF. (May, 2018)The Getaway, a 34-room boutique hotel located in the picturesque seaside village of Carmel-by-the-Sea, Calif., made its debut mid-April 2018 following an extensive property-wide renovation and external refresh. The latest joint-venture asset between San Francisco-based PlumpJack Group and Meriwether Companies, The Getaway exudes a coastal, casual-chic vibe with design inspired by its surrounding natural environs.

Situated at the gateway to Downtown Carmel on Ocean Avenue and Junipero Street, the former Village Inn has been completely transformed into a modern beach retreat. The two-story property features 34 guest rooms, each with its own fireplace, and high-quality, thoughtful touchpoints.

“The Getaway has a playful, energetic and youthful personality—a distinct experience for families and the spirited lifestyle traveler who wants to live life out loud and explore the best of the destination,” says General Manager Kevin Krueger. “We’re steps away from the downtown shops, restaurants and galleries, and the beach is just a short distance away.”

Among hotel amenities that celebrate the destination and encourage guests to discover the enchanting charm of Carmel-by-the-Sea are puzzles and coloring books to bring out the inner artist, beach toys, and pampered amenities for dogs including dog beds, bowls and treats.

“Carmel-by-the-Sea has the history, character and quaint lifestyle that we love so much at PlumpJack Group,” says Hilary Newsom, president and partner, PlumpJack Group. “We’re thrilled to grow our presence here, to become a larger part of the community and give guests another way to experience the destination in addition to our first Carmel property, The Hideaway.”

The Getaway is a sister property to The Hideaway, a 24-room inn opened by PlumpJack Group and Meriwether Companies in spring 2016.
