I was unsure what to expect when booking the cottage, I thought it might be a little basic and decor old-fashioned, I was wrong the whole place is beautiful, we loved it. We stayed just for 1 night over the labour day weekend and wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in Devon cottage which is charming and had... More

We wish we had planned our trip to stay longer in Carmel. The town was beautiful and the Edgemere Cottages was charming and welcoming. Gretchen and Doug made a scrumptious breakfast. We hope we have the opportunity to stay at the cottages again sometime and would recommend the cottages to anyone!

For fourteen years, I have ONLY stayed in the Rosemont cottage at Edgemere Cottages when in Carmel. That says a lot. There are tons of well run, attractive inns in Carmel, but none combine the setting, ambiance, and excellent management of this Inn. Doug, Gretchen, and M'Kalah make us feel like favorite family members from the moment we arrive. Crank... More

We are ALWAYS happy to have people visit us again, and again... Truly there is no better compliment than to have guests request us, and our specific cottages.

Myself, husband & daughter stayed here last February and what a wonderful find, we originally booked for one night as we were travelling down the coast but just couldn't leave and ended up staying on for another two nights, close to the beach and close to shops but a nice distance from it all, its just pure bliss.

Gretchen and Doug were kind enough to honor an out-dated gift certificate. The place was charming, and breakfast was delicious, especially as Gretchen accommodated a particular request of mine. Doug was helpful with his advice, and the location couldn't be better. While there are many, many places to stay in Carmel, I would definitely recommend Edgemere Cottages.

Thank you so very much for your kind words. we really do try to make all of our guests feel welcome, and as if they are "coming home"... to their beloved aunt's & uncle's house, if not to "Mom's house"...

We spent a lovely evening here. The room was quaint and cute and impeccably clean. We stayed at a few places during our one month holiday and I can say that this was a very comfortable bed and slept like a dream! The gorgeous beach is only steps away around the corner.The only (very slight) negative is that the garden... More

We have stayed at Edgemere once or twice a year for the past five years. Doug & Gretchen are wonderful hosts. The location is perfect, walking distance to town, but far enough away that it is very quiet and only 1/2 block to the beach. The cottages are so cute and roomy. We have stayed in all of them. They... More

This place is a wonderful and charming B & B. It is everything you would want from a stay. The place is a very close walk to a beautiful beach. However, I would caution those that want to walk to town regularly due to the distance. This is especially true if you are dressed nicely or are cold-natured. The cottage... More

This a a quintessential cottage B & B experience. The fully equipped two room French Chalet had a fireplace (wood and pre stoked) in main room and a thermostat controlled gas fireplace in bedroom. The uber congenial hosts present a great atmosphere and hearty/healthy breakfast. Carmel is a great, quaint and quiet locale. We will likely return and I can't... More
