By husband and I just recently got married in Carmel and have been there a few times looking for places to stay for our wedding weekend. We checked out a number of little hotels in the Carmel-by-the-sea area, all quaint and cute, but when we found these cottages we fell in love.
Cheryl, the owner, is so helpful and sweet. We stayed in the Moon Gate cottage and my parents rented the Log Haven cottage. They are in a perfect location, just a couple blocks from Ocean Ave and from the beach.
For almost the same prices as some of the nicer hotels you have your own living room, kitchen, patio, etc. The gardens are immaculate - we loved sitting outside in the morning having coffee.
We are already planning our return next year for our 1 yr anniversary. If you're looking for a relaxing, beautiful rental for a nice weekend in Carmel we highly recommend the cottages!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Carmel Cottage Inn consists of five quaint, historic cottages set in a beautiful garden one block from Carmel Beach and just a few blocks from downtown Carmel. All five cottages, Sky Way, Moon Gate, Home Port, Tradewinds and Log Haven, have been lovingly restored, respectful of the request several long time guests have asked of us, "Please don't change them too much." Although we have changed just about everything except most of the wood and leather furniture, we hope we have made them feel like they should have always looked this way...A bit like walking back in time. We think you'll find the Carmel Cottage Inn Is the perfect place to relax after a day enjoying the beauty and activities of the Central Coast. We would be delighted to have you stay with us. ... more less
