My husband and I spent two nights at Edgemere in the Patio Room. it met our needs perfectly. We loved sleeping with the Frenchdoors left open and listening to waves crashing! Room was a 3 minute walk to an amazing beach. Water was only 58•F so too cold to swim but great for sitting or walking. Carmel has a long...

We only stayed for one night, as a stopover on our road trip along the Pacific Coast Highway. It was such a cute and comfy little cottage. Its literally 2 minutes walk from the most beautiful beach. The owner does a lovely home cooked breakfast too. Would recommend.

We loved our stay here and we're sad it was just for one night - but it such a great stay that we would love to come back here some day. The Innkeepers Doug and Gretchen were so friendly and courteous - they made our stay more enjoyable. We stayed in the Devon cottage and it was perfect for us....

If I owned a B&B, this is how I would run it. We stayed one night in the Patio Room, which is part of the main house. Very comfortable and charming with extra touches that made our stay so enjoyable. Our hosts were very personable and helpful, but not intrusive. Enjoyed an early morning walk to the beach and then...

Lovely family owned cottages just off the beach in Carmel. Nice owners, friendly cats, and gardens, Rosemont has huge bedroom with great little kitchen and sitting area. Really nice breakfast. Convenient to beach and Carmel by the Sea downtown. The living space was just a little cluttered and dated but otherwise a comfortable stay.

Lovely personal B and B clean and tidy, close to beach and walkable to the town centre. Breakfast home cooked. Drove the pacific highway which was fantastic, saw whales, orcas, dolphins and elephant seals. Carmel cute and pretty. Recommended.

Stayed one very pleasant night in the Devon Cottage. It was well-appointed, with fresh flowers on the table, a gas fireplace, books on the shelf, and fresh cookies. There was a tiny kitchenette with coffee and tea, and a cute bathroom with a nice, hot shower. The cottages are a block from the beach and a pleasant 20-minute walk to...

These tiny “Hansel and Gretel” cottages sit in the owner’s garden and are only one block from the beautiful beach. Gretchen and Doug are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast is taken in their dining room and comprises a tasty hot option (pancakes, quiche etc) and fresh fruit. We stayed in Piccadilly, which had a separate pull...

We had a lovely stay at Edgemere Cottages. The cottage was homey and comfortable with a small but well appointed kitchenette. The neighborhood was quiet and the walk to the beach was about a block. Perfect location. Breakfast all three mornings was delicious and varied--fresh fruit every day, egg dishes and sweet bread (scone one day, muffin the next) or...
