We stayed only one night at the Edgemere Cottages, and I sincerely wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Devon cottage and it was so cute. A very cozy and inviting room with a comfy bed and lots of pillows, Tv (which we got a personal run-down of how to use), a little woodstove style fireplace, a... More

What a truly pleasant surprise! Now I don't want to gush, because I want to be able to get a room the next time I'm in the Carmel area! But it's hard not to. A very homey place that still exudes Carmel charm, made even more homey by the friendly, helpful, easygoing, family-friendly hosts, Gretchen and Doug-- not to mention... More

We are B&B owners ourselves and we recognize the earmarks of good place to stay. This B&B (cottages), gets high marks! The Picadilly Cottage that we stayed in was charming and just perfect for a stay at the beach. The beach - just a block away of course in Carmel is fabulous! Gretchen and Doug, out hosts, were bright, informative... More

we stayed here last spring, it was our first time staying at a B&B, it was myself, my husband and our 9 month old daughter. We were more than happy with our experience and the staff was more than helpful with accommodating our little one :). The food was amazing, I'm still dreaming of the baked French toast. It was...

We were looking for a loverly quaint, comfortable, clean, convenient, home base for venturing out into the area from Monterrey to Big Sur. Edgemere was all we hoped for and more. We were greeted by welcoming hosts, cottage kitties, fresh baked cookies and lovely farmer's market bouquets. We stayed in Rosemont most of the week and then in Devon for... More

Excellent location. Quick, easy walk to the beach. Or, longer walks along the beach or through the town. Owners provide flashlights for nighttime walking as it's quite dark at night. Inviting. Owners are sincerely welcoming and helpful. Quaint. The grounds are lovely, w/ herbs throughout. Rooms are unique and comfy. Two nice cats. Price is right. Breakfast is quality, home-cooked... More

We stayed here in late October, and we were in the Rosemont cottage. I loved it as soon as we arrived. The cottages are cute & cozy surrounded by gardens and two friendly cats. The owners Gretchen & Doug made us feel quite welcome and make a great breakfast. We even had our own little patio which was tucked in... More

We loved the Edgemere cottages. They are very cozy and tucked away among a lovely garden with cats wandering around. Just a block or two from the beach and not far from great restaurants and wine tasting bars. Wood burning, remote operated fireplaces in the rooms were amazing, and they even have small kitchens inside. Breakfast was good and nice... More

My husband and I stubbled across Edgemere Cottages online, and I am so, so glad we did. It is a lovely B&B a block-ish from the beach, with friendly owners, in-house cats :) and amazing breakfast. It's also dog-friendly, which was very important for me. Although my dog has since passed, I would never consider staying anywhere else in Carmel.

We stayed in the Rosemont Cottage. It was so gorgeously decorated. All green and red and pink. Lovely lavender lotion (just saying!). Service was great and breakfast was scrumptious! We were served Raison and Cinnamon French toast, fresh fruit, and sausage. Yum!
