We just came back from a fabulous stay in Carmel. Gretchen and Doug were friendly and accommodating hosts who instantly put as at ease and made us feel at home. My 6 year old daughter and I both have gluten allergies and she has a nut allergy. Gretchen prepared a delicious frittata one morning, with fruit and hot coffee, and... More

My wife found this charming inn and we booked it for two nights right after Christmas. Our room had a nice kitchenette, gas fireplace, Wi-Fi, etc. Owner is most gracious, cooked great breakfasts, and even loaned passes to Monterey Bay Aquarium (saved us $70), which is a nice amenity! Would definitely stay here again and recommend it.

Carmel is one of those towns that's a rare find. Edgemere is truly a hidden gem in this town, a treasure that only exists in a Tolkien novel. Fortunately for Audrey and I, we get to experience the shire in Carmel. Run by Gretchen and Doug, this wonderful home has enough warmth for all the hobbits, dwarfs and elves of... More

Edgemere Cottages provided just what we wanted in a B&B in Carmel. We were on a quiet street but close enough to the beach to hear and smell the ocean with the windows open. Gretchen was a great host. Breakfast was relaxed and casual with good conversation and great food. We enjoyed wandering through the gardens and relaxing in the... More

Edgemere Cottages is a charming little B&B in the heart of Carmel. Just one street over from the ocean, you can open the windows and hear it all night long. The home is owned by a charming woman that was raised in Carmel. Breakfast was delicious and the location was great.

We were upgraded to Picadilly Cottage, a gorgeous and comfortable cottage. Very short walk to Carmel beach. Lovely streets to wander through and easy walking distance to local shops & restaurants.loved the walk home in the dark as Carmel has no street lights!

This is a wonderful and memorable place to stay. Beautiful accommodation with so many character features in the room. Home cooked breakfasts are out of this world (strawberry french toast was the most delicious breakfast I have ever had) and owners could not have done more to help us plan our stay. I can not imagine a nicer place to... More

We are fortunte to live in the Bay Area which allows us easy access to visit the Carmel/Monterey area several times a year. We adopted our 12 lb.

This was my first trip to Carmel, what a wonderful, beautiful area. Our cottage, Rosemont, was clean with so many extras to make you feel comfortable. I loved the garden and Gretchen can answer any question. It was our 5th anniversary and she surprised us with a bottle of Champayne, thank you! We enjoyed 2 breakfasts made from scratch, very...
