We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and my birthday at this lovely cottage. Everything was just as pictured. The cottage was cozy, clean, comfortable...everything we wanted and expected. Carmel is a delightful town to visit! There's so much to see in town and nearby. We went on day trips to Big Sur, Monterey, Pacific Grove, 17-Mile Drive, Point Lobos State Park, and Carmel Mission. And we had plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying the cottage. Some of our favorite restaurants in Carmel were Katy's Place (best breakfast!), Casanova's, and Yafa's. I would highly recommend a vacation to Carmel and a stay at Dove Cottage.
