We had a two night stay at Edgemere and i wish it could have been longer. Gretchen and Doug were the perfect hosts. The room was clean and cozy and the grounds were wonderful. I was only able to join my wife and daughter one morning for breakfast (early morning tee time at Pebble Beach was calling) but the one... More

Look past the older style and the simple but very cosy and comfy accommodation - Edgemere has two major pluses - the location and the hosts. A family owned and operated B&B (we stayed in the patio room) where your hosts Gretchen, Doug (plus riffraff & magenta - the cats) made us feel most welcome and very relaxed so far... More

If you are looking for quiet, cozy, intimate and romantic, this place is for you!! I seriously need to decompress and this place was the perfect place. We stayed in Rosemont Cottage and loved it! The breakfasts were fabulous and well-portioned. Gretchen and Doug were fabulous! I would highly recommend this place to my family and friends.

I felt comfortable from the moment I spoke with Gretchen, the innkeeper, to make my reservation. Our room included a gas fire-place, a skylight and a separate kitchenette. The location, on a quiet street one block from the ocean, was perfect and we could hear the waves from our room. Our breakfasts were delicious and Gretchen was able to make... More

Family operated Bed & Breakfast in a quiet neighborhood near the ocean. Clean and comfortable with friendly helpful hosts. We stayed in the Rosemont Cottage which appeared to be freshly remodeled. Couldn't have enjoyed our stay more.

If you are looking for an oasis just one block from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, this is it. Our family met here from the East Coast, West Coast, and Europe. We did not want to leave. Great hosts. Great food. Great Accomodations. Within walking distance to Carmel so park the car and forget it. Two... More

I can't say enough great things about the Edgemere Cottages in Carmel-by-the-sea!....I initially found their website online, thought the cottages looked perfect! then came onto Trip Advisor and saw a bunch of really bad reviews. Just before I read the reviews I had contacted Edgemere about the days we wanted to stay, etc. So I emailed then back and explained... More

Wow. What a dump. A girlfriend and I chose to stay at Edgemere Cottages because it looked cute from the pictures (they fool you) and because the rate was decent. What an adventure it was. The owners, Tommy and Ruth, are ecclectic - but Tommy in particular was rather rude, very smelly, and decided to butt into our breakfast one... More

We stayed in the Rosemont (3 children, myself and our dog) and found the room spacious and clean with lots of nice touches (pretty linens, interesting books, charming windows and a writing desk). We loved the big bathtub, real wood fireplace (evening fire set to light upon arrival) and a newly remodeled kitchenette. My parents stayed in the Devon and... More
