“Just what we hoped for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2014

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 the last night. Both were pretty and comfortable in every way. A lot of thought has gone into what may be needed for comfort in both warm and cool weather. We especially enjoyed using the fireplace each night in Rosemont. I believe the other cottages have gas powered stoves that are also cozy. The hosts did a wonderful job of listening to our hopes for the trip and making suggestions that filled each day with fun and interest. They have passes to the aquarium in Monterey that guests may use and attend to details such as providing a beach fire kit for a memorable beach evening at a minimal cost. And the breakfast began each day with perfection :-) Can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: Both rooms were extremely quiet during our stay even with windows open. Rosemont is all one level...

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 food.

Owners found to be helpful above and beyond the call of duty when a problem arose.

Highly recommended. I'll be back.

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 around the corner where I could sit (to dine on my chocolate) and be visited by the cats. The location is wonderful; my husband & I walked down to the beach (one block away) a couple of times each day (always went down to watch the sunset). It was difficult to leave after only three nights.

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 to chat with the owners. A lovely spot!

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.

Room Tip: I've stayed in Devon and Rosemont, and both are lovely.

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!

My husband and I stayed for 3 days here, in Piccadilly Cottage. What an amazing place. Starting with Gretchen, the woman who runs the show, to the two friendly cats Riff Raff and Magenta. The room was wonderful, the grounds are magical and the breakfasts, cooked by Gretchen were beyond amazing. Only 1 block to the beach, the Edgemere Cottages are perfect, in every way. Here are some pictures that may show just how wonderful this place is.
