We had a three night stay, booked online. The accommodation is individual cottages in the grounds of the owners house, set in an 'Arts & Craft' designed area of Carmel. Our Welcome was by Gretchen and Doug, the Innkeepers and our cottage was warmed by a welcoming fire on a cool day. Everything was clean and well fitted out with...

We loved our stay here in the "Devon" cottage. This B&B has an especially quaint, homely, non-corporate feel to it. It's spitting distance from the beach and just a short walk into town. Our host was very friendly and chatty, eager to share local expertise and happy to help us out when we needed toothpaste and ibuprofen. The house cat...

Thank you for your kind words. We have learned to "be prepared" for almost any need, for ourselves, and for our guests... Our location is truly unique, as we are located in the "residential" part of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The property was originally built as a family home in the 1920's. It was transformed into an inn/cottages in the 1950's. Being able...

We have been staying here for several years now, and look forward to each trip! The hosts are fantastic, and did I mention can they cook! We love that they are dog friendly, so our whole family can enjoy a vacation together. We have stayed in different rooms/cottages over the years, all are very clean and comfortable. Kim C

We had a pleasant stay with the best breakfast you could ask for (homemade). The rooms are lovely and the hosts are very kind. We will definitely stay there again next time and we can recommend this place for everyone who doesn't want a regular hotel experience.

I had a wonderful stay at this charming B&B located just one block from the beach! The owners, Doug & Gretchen, were lovely, kind, and gracious. There was a plate of cookies and mints waiting for me in my room after check-in, and a large bottle of complimentary water. My room was very spacious with a comfy bed. The cottages...
