We’ve loved looking back on some of Inspirato members’ favorite memories with the club, and we appreciate you sharing them with us on the official member Facebook page and beyond. As we look forward to future trips, we thought we’d highlight some of our favorite member reviews to help get you thinking about where you might like to go when it’s safe to travel again. Here’s one of our favorites from member Jared S., who traveled with his wife to Carmel Valley, California, to the Bernardus Lodge & Spa to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary:

“The Bernardus was spectacular. My wife had been to the Carmel area as a college student and has always told me she’s wanted to go back. When we found the Bernardus in the Inspirato portfolio, we thought it looked perfect for a romantic getaway from work and little kids to celebrate 10 years of marriage. We were drawn by the unique romantic/rustic decor, the big copper tubs, the spa, and the location.

This trip exceeded every expectation. Walking into the room was like a dream. Very comfortable, spread out, and every detail promotes that relaxation most people seek when they stay here.

“The location is awesome! Nestled in Carmel Valley next to a vineyard and surrounded by mountains. This made for excellent views, especially at dawn and at sunset. A short drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea and Pebble Beach gave the trip great variety. In addition to relaxation, spa, and great food at the resort, these nearby spots added shopping, wine tasting, golfing, hiking, and many other activities that will draw folks looking for more activity/adventure.

“The weather in the valley is perfect. Pebble Beach and Carmel-by-the-Sea are coastal and stay pretty chilly. But at the resort it would be cool in the morning and by noon the sun was out with temperatures in the mid-70s: perfect for swimsuits by the pool. This also added variety when we would spend the day in the sun at the resort but go into Carmel for dinner and have to wear pants and a sweater. It almost felt like we were on two different vacations, which was a memorable element to the trip for us!

“We hope to go back one day! Thanks Inspirato and everyone at Bernardus for helping us find a trip worthy of our 10-year anniversary celebration. You set the bar high!”

    Bernardus is simply one of the best accommodations in Carmel Valley. The villa accommodations are spacious for my family of eight (4 boys and two large dogs). They welcome our furry friends, provide plenty of activities, and is centrally located in Carmel Valley. Although I feel the room service food could have a little more variety, especially for my four little boys, the service overall is excellent. Definitely a great place for an anniversary celebration!
