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... More

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.

Amazing B&B. This was a gem of a find and one that we shall be returning to. Wonderful hosts, fantastic accommodation, great breakfast. Only a couple of minutes from the beach. Our short stay was lovely, comfortable and just perfect.

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... More

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... More

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... More

My wife and I spent the weekend here at the end of a trip to California. This B&B is quite lovely, in a quiet neighborhood several blocks away from the busy Ocean Avenue, and is just one short block away from the spectacular Carmel beach. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodated our vegan diets. We had a small kitchenette... More

This was our second stay at The Edgemere Cottages. It was as good as our last stay. I was worried because Gretchen, our hostess, was away. The fear was that her baking skills which are varied and great, would be missed at breakfast. Enter Doug, Gretchen's ruggedly handsome, Harley riding husband. Well he made the most amazing French toast that... More

I luckily found Edgemere Cottages as I was planning a last minute trip to Carmel. This fairytale B&B only has a handful of rooms, and I was able to snag the last room available -- the patio room. While this is the only room attached to the main house, the private patio was adorable, and the room itself was perfect... More
