Charming....Charming place. We just returned from staying at Edgemere Cottages. We stayed in the Rosemont, but from what we saw the other cottages were just as charming. I however feel in love the Rosemont and next time I will request that cottage..2 rooms both with fireplaces. The living area has everything you need - real wood burning fireplace, fully ready...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights over Thanksgiving weekend to celebrate our anniversary. We found Edgemere through tripadvisor and was not disappointed. We stayed in the Patio room and it was very cozy and welcoming. The house cats were a great addition and made us feel as if we were staying with family. The breakfasts were amazing and kept... More

Cute and quaint cottages, beautifully landscaped, near to the beach, and warm welcoming hosts. We stayed here with our 10-year-old son and had a fabulous experience. The breakfast was delicious, the cottage and dining area cozy, and you can't beat the proximity to the beach. We'll be back!

My mom and I were not looking for an over-luxurious place to stay in Carmel -- we wanted something charming, approachable, and homey, and we found it! Gretchen's place feels lived-in and we felt instantly at peace with our surroundings. There are so many different nooks where you can settle down, enjoy some wine and cheese, and watch the wildlife... More

My fiancé and I drove south from San Francisco and had a stop over in beautiful Edgemere Cottages. We loved it. Fantastic service from the owners, great breakfast and cool house cats. The location, only a minute's walk to the beach is also great - we bought some firewood, a bottle of wine, and had a barbecue down there. Recommended.

We just got back from a week in Carmel at Edgemere Cottages. What a lovely place to spend a week! Our hosts Gretchen and Doug have a great location and they made us feel extremely welcome. We were a block from the beach and we could hear the waves every night. The breakfasts were wonderful. I've never had quiche as... More

Carmel was the first stop in our tour of Northern California. We stayed at Edgemere in the Patio Room for 4 nights. Pros: - incredible hosts: Gretchen you are amazing and Doug you are great. Riffraff and Magenta (resident cats) you are simply adorable. - excellent location: in a residential neighborhood, super charming and picturesque, and just 1 block away... More

We fell in love with Carmel. It was the highlight of our trip and we ended up in Carmel by default, as all the accommodation in Monterey was booked (this was exceptionally fortunate for us). Carmel was the most quaint village and made us feel like we were in a storybook. It has lots of trees, lots of cute cottages... More

I wanted that "cottage experience!" We rented the Rosemont and Patio Room (all that was available when I booked). My parents took the Rosemont room (so jealous) it was amazing! Very roomy, small kitchen, large bedroom, small living room -- it was perfect! My husband and I stayed in the Patio Room. Small but provided a good nights rest. The... More

what a lovely place to stay in Carmel, in a quiet street and less than 5 minutes to a beautiful beach (with the chance to see some dolphins). Gretchen, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. One day we wanted to go to the beach and she gave us beach chairs and towels. We stayed in the patio room which... More
