Hofsas House is Celebrating 70 Years in Carmel-by-the-Sea!

The Theis family is celebrating its 70th anniversary of bringing European hospitality to Carmel-by-the-Sea at its beautiful Bavarian-inspired Hofsas House Hotel!

Located in the picturesque town of Carmel-by-the-Sea, the Hofsas House is a legendary stop for rest, relaxation and to take in what Carmel-by-the-Sea has to offer– which is plenty! My family and I love being able to drive up the coast, a couple hour drive from LA, and be immersed in the Central Coast and it’s offerings. From the wineries of the Carmel Valley to the picturesque 17 mile drive, the quaint boutiques of Carmel, to the wonderful restaurants throughout; there is so much to do and see! The BEST part is that the Hofsas House is a short, beautiful walk from everything!

Besides the location being perfection, the Hofsas House is known for taking into account guests every need; from being family friendly by welcoming the kiddos with special roomy family suites, to being dog friendly with a special package that accommodates mans best friend.

Hofsas House is one of the most dog-friendly hotels in Carmel. Guests receive a complimentary Doggie Welcome Package upon arrival that includes:

Hofsas House dog Frisbee
Hofsas House collapsible dog bowl
Special dog bed
Letter from Tank, our onsite Pet Concierge
Special dog amenities package

A package of treats

This year, the Hofsas House is celebrating their 70th year in Carmel-by-the-Sea with a special tour package:
