California’s Carmel Valley Ranch recently launched its new Munchkin Menu for family travelers to better enjoy the property and its more than 500 acres.

Make the stay as comfortable and easy as possible with complimentary amenities like a diaper genie, bottle warmer, elephant night light and sound machine projecting a starry nightscape in the room. This package also includes a complimentary Bundle of Joy bath kit by Los Gatos-based Noodle & Boo, featuring allergen-free, newborn shampoo, body wash and lotion.
