Tickle Pink InnThe Finest of Carmel Inns, but with a Funny Name
The site was originally the home of California State Senator Edward and Mrs. Bess Tickle. A great lover of flowers, particularly pink varieties, Mrs. Tickle liked a suggestion to name their hillside stone cottage ‘Tickle Pink’. The stone cottage has since disappeared but the name remains to this day.
