Step back in time in this rare, beautiful, original Carmel redwood cottage full of timeless charm, nestled in an enchanting garden with fireplace, stone patio, antique furniture and original art. Designed by famous Early California architect Julia Morgan, this wonderfully preserved, immaculate home is a historic gem of old Carmel.
Our Great-Aunt Etta built this cottage in 1919 and operated her own bed and breakfast here, offering 'breakfast in bed, lunch on the patio, and dinner by the fire.' Our family has lovingly cared for this beautiful redwood gem for three generations--and now are are pleased to share it with you. Experience the authentic atmosphere of old-time Carmel Point--just two blocks to Carmel Beach, four to River Beach.
The Cottage sleeps 4-6 in three bedrooms. Amenities include wireless internet, cable TV, DVD, laundry, microwave. Our wonderful caretaker lives next door. Rental by week or month (3-4 day weekends OK in winter).
Romantic Getaway or Family Gathering: This is not a store-bought modern luxury rental--it is a beautifully maintained, enchanting little historic cottage tended with love through three generations. Perfect for a family gathering, a romantic honeymoon, or a special reunion with your best friends. Most of our guests return year after year.
Our grant-aunt Etta operated the Little Cottage of River Winds as a bed and breakfast from 1919 until the 1960s, living in the tiny front bedroom and fixing meals in the galley kitchen. She offered 'breakfast in bed, lunch on the patio, and dinner by the fire.' Etta believed in a cozy cottage and a wild garden--and her spirit lives on in the charm--and sometimes the quirks--of this soulful place.
Our stay at Aunt Etta's cottage was just what we wanted. The cottage is comfortable, welcoming, neat as a pin and truly has all the comforts of home. It is an easy walk to the beach, to "downtown" Carmel or the mission. During our stay, the gardens were in bloom and they are beautiful. It is easy to understand why the family who owns it loves this home...it is a treasure.
Carmel Point, the most beautiful meeting of land and sea on God's green earth. Just a few miles from Point Lobos State Park and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Walking distance to old Carmel Mission, Robinson Jeffers' Tor House, and the beautiful beaches of Carmel Bay.
