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

Our family of 4 stayed here for one night on our drive from San Fran to Los Angeles. Wow, the place is just gorgeous. Beautiful cottages in charming garden literally a stones throw from stunning Carmel beach. The restaurants are about 20 mins walk away, but the beach path takes you most of the way so no complaints! An easy... More

We stayed in Carmel for the first time and absolutely LOVED this inn. The staff was super accommodating and helpful, even offering us beach chairs and towels to use down at the beach, (Which is literally 1 block away!) The location is amazing. Like mentioned above the beach is a short walk, only one block. We walked into town as... More

The location is perfect, just a few blocks from the beach and a short drive away from downtown Carmel. We stayed in the Devon Cottage, which was just adorable, with a kitchenette and even a gas fireplace! Breakfast is provided in the main house and was so yummy (homemade french toast, fresh fruit, and hot coco)! Would definitely recommend staying... More

Great value! Fabulous healthy and delicious breakfast you won't find anywhere else! Quiet, charming, well run small establishment that echoes the past; reminds one of an English country cottage. Proprietors friendly, helpful, and interested in making your visit memorable. Highly recommend for those not interested in a sterile environment. BTW, super clean!

We've visited Gretchen & Doug now four times and it's been a true home-from-home. They're extremely welcoming and their apartments are a relaxing and tranquil space not 50 steps from the stunning Carmel beach. Can't recommend it highly enough.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at Edgemere Cottages - excellent breakfasts (especially yummy scones!), easy access to the beach, on a quiet street a few blocks from town center.
