In the early 1900's, when the main residence was constructed in an existing pear orchard, Carmel Valley was primarily agricultural. Today, Carmel Valley is dotted with homes, farms, ranches, vineyards shopping and restaurants. In the early 1900's, the property consisted of a Craftman-style main residence and at least four other structures, including the existing barn and a summer kitchen. From the time we acquired the property in 1993, we have worked to restore the property's elements to their original beauty while incorporating modern comforts. The Guest Cottage has been re-purposed from the former summer kitchen structure, retaining the history and charm of California history while offering cozy accommodations in a rural environment.

Owners Linda and Larry Wheaton have resided in Carmel Valley since Larry retired from a computer sales and marketing career. Larry grew up in the Monterey area and hiked over the hills separating Monterey and Carmel Valley as a kid. 'I quickly discovered that the best summer time micro-climate on the Peninsula was in Carmel Valley. So when I retired, Carmel Valley was the place we wanted to live'.
We purchased our Farm House and out-buildings in Carmel Valley's in 1993 We were drawn to the location because of it's proximity to recreation, mountain views and weather. We have lovingly remodeled, replanted and rebuilt the gardens and updated the out-buildings much the way they were in the 1920's. Our children and grand-children now come here to ride the tractor, pick tomatoes, apples, apricots and otherwise enjoy the clear fresh air. Our guest cottage is the last out-building to be remodeled and is now our vacation rental.
Our location is close to Carmel-by-the-Sea but also is just minutes to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, Pacific Grove and Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. Jefferies, our favorite breakfast and lunch hang-out, is two minutes away while the Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting Company is just as close. But the larger Monterey County area is really what attracts people from all over the world. You can relax on our Guest Cottage Patio, resting from a busy day (eating an hors d'oeuvre you made with fresh tomatoes from the garden), and in 8 minutes be sitting at the piano bar at Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch wondering what to have for dinner.
