The Hairy Lemon is Neither Hairy Nor a Lemon But Just Right

August 26, 2008 at 3:20 PM | by | Comments (3)

With a name like Hairy Lemon, this hotel has completely piqued our interest. What is a hairy lemon? Does the hotel serve them here? Not quite.

The Irish owners of this Ugandan retreat along the Nile River outside of Kampala named the place after a favorite pub in Dublin. You'll find birds, monkeys, and kayakers, but no lemons and not that much hair.

If you haven't been, Kampala is hot, dusty, dirty, and busy. Thus the Hairy Lemon might just be the best place within an hour's drive to get away from all that pollution and those con men trying to get away with your money.

  Site Where: 155 Highland Drive [map], Carmel, CA, United States, 93923

With staycations all the rage these days, we've decided to take a look at some of the best places in the U.S. for quick, close-to-home trips. Up first is Carmel-by-the-Sea, a small yet upscale town on the Monterey Peninsula. Known for its devotion to the arts and its celeb residents (Clint Eastwood was once mayor here), Carmel is also home to small hotels and inns galore. Enjoy.

With a name like Tickle Pink Inn, it seems hard to take this place seriously. But this inn is all business when it comes to offering you an extraordinary vantage point of the Monterey coastline in extreme comfort.

Rated #1 by reviewers on TripAdvisor, the Tickle Pink Inn is located just off the scenic Highway 1 on Highland Drive. The inn has 35 "casually elegant" rooms and suites, all with views of either the ocean or the coves of the Carmel Highlands.

If you want to getaway to do nothing but hibernate in a cozy room and enjoy a misty view of waves crashing with occasional sunshine, then this is the place. Pack your Uggs and start driving.
