Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

The Zichron Yaacov Loggia, or lodge, is a beautiful, renovated 100-year old stone cottage, in the heart of the historic centre of Zichron Yaacov. The cottage is set in a tranquil and luxuriant Mediterranean garden, brimming with organically-grown vegetables, herbs, grapes, pomegranates, olives, figs, passion fruit and climbing roses, to name just a few. Guests are invited to sample for themselves any of the garden's produce.

The cottage can accommodate up to six people comfortably: a couple in a Queen-sized bed (plus crib if requested) in the master bedroom, and up to four single beds in the spacious second bedroom. If you need more room, the cottage has an additional very large third bedroom which has both an inter-connecting door to the second bedroom, as well as its own external door going straight out to the garden. This extra room can made available for your use for an extra fee on request. The Loggia is air-conditioned throughout and in addition all bedrooms have ceiling fans. There is a fully-equipped kosher/vegetarian kitchen with full size oven, 4 electric burners, microwave, kettle and coffee machine. Special arrangements can be made for shabbat-observant families. A washing machine, ironing facilities and of course free Wi-Fi, are also provided.

Guests may take a gentle 5-minute stroll into town to enjoy Zichron's charming and relaxed atmosphere, with its many cafes, boutiques, restaurants and wine-bars, as well as the historic Aronson House and Museum, Ohel Yaacov synagogue and Museum, and the First Aliyah Museum. In addition, tours are available in English of the two local wineries - the Carmel Mizrachi Winery and the Tishbi Winery. The glorious beaches of Hof Dor and HaBonim (a Nature Parks Authority nature reserve) are a few minutes drive away. Windsurfing, supping, catamaran, sailing and paragliding are all available and scuba diving can be found among the ancient ruins of Caesarea, 15 minutes south of Zichron.

The train station is an easy 7 minute drive from Zichron, with fast and direct trains to Tel Aviv and Haifa (30 minutes) and Ben Gurion Airport (50 minutes)from Binyamina.

Come and see for yourselves!

Excellent for our requirements

  • 4 of 5

Delighted rustic style cottage with all mod cons in a quiet area of Zichron Yaakov. Property owners most helpful via e-mail and over the phone, although they were away when we stayed. They have a dog called Hershy whom we never had the pleasure of encountering, much to our relief! Factor in that it's difficult lugging luggage into the property via the stunning garden over the pebbles. The strictly kosher kitchen with Shabbat kettle and hotplate were appreciated, but be aware that only dairy/parev food is allowed on the premises. We would come again!

Exceptional property made for a very memorable visit

  • 5 of 5

This stone cottage truly is remarkable. I travel often for work and pleasure and it is a rare occurrence when a property is even better than the photos and descriptions. It is spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed with highest quality comforts like a great coffee maker and fabulous bedding and towel, fast wifi and great cable tv. Everything you need is there.We cooked a Hanukkah feast and had every utensil and item we needed! The configuration of the cottage is also great with the 2 bedrooms on opposite ends of the house and a very comfortable living /dining space in between.And the garden, with its herbs and lemon trees was spectacular.It is also an easy walk into the center of Zichron with its history and lovely shops.All of this created a wonderful place for me to visit with my nephews and their wives and to celebrate the birth of each of their firstborn children as well as Hanukkah and my birthday ! Since their father, my brother, passed away in 2010, I have visited Israel each year to see them and have stayed in various places. Trying to create a family atmosphere in rental properties , once a yea,r is difficult. But, this cottage in Zichron was perfect. It will likely be our go to rental from now on. And a restaurant tip! The Nili Wine House in the center of town is fantastic for breakfast and we also did take out Sushi ( Kosher) that was fabulous.And,they have a great selection of wines to take home also. I highly recommend spending time in this beautiful city and making this stone cottage home while you are there.

Spent a very relaxing few days in this charming cottage. It is comfortable, spotlessly clean and the owner is most helpful. Would certainly want to return.

Wonderful Cottage Tucked Away in Zichron Yaakov

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were fortunate to stumble upon this wonderful Cottage just a few blocks from the main walking street in Zichron Yaakov. We spent a comfortable month in the Cottage. The gardens around the Cottage offer the privacy a visitor needs. And the Cottage is well equipped with the basic necessities: kitchen, laundry, Internet, TV, air conditioning in addition to being nicely decorated. The owner of the Cottage is very accommodating and responds to any requests in a very timely manner. I would recommend staying here when you visit Zichron Yaakov.

My husband and I fell in love with Zichron Ya'acov, and much of the magic had to do with our charming cottage and garden in a beautiful, private and quiet setting. We were able to walk to town, and our host, Joanna was a very helpful "concierge" , very willing and able to give advise regarding travel, restaurants, shopping, etc. She was also very accessible when we had any requests or questions.

I only hope, given all of the great reviews, that there will be availability when we wish to return!
