Terry and I have lived on this property for 26 years and have loved it . We have made our garden a hobby and love to share it with friends & family.
Barb Egland purchased this studio in 1988
We fell in love with Carmel years ago because of the charm and quaintness that is here.
I was a Concierge and can assist with your requests while staying here.
We are a close walk into town, just 1 mile north of Ocean Avenue.
Lovely cottage tucked away in a delightful garden with plenty of birds & squirrels. We never wanted to leave! Barb is the perfect hostess- she's thought of everything! The decor is beautiful, well-appointed kitchen & bathroom too. Table just outside for morning coffee or evening wine. We can't wait to go back!!
We had a wonderful weekend in Carmel, staying in this lovely cottage. When we arrived at dusk, there was lovely music playing and lights twinkling that set the mood for our entire stay. The cottage certainly exceeded our expectations. Barb has thought of every detail...from the luxury soaps, to the binoculars for birdwatching, to the mini-library which featured many books about the Carmel area--- not to mention the Ghiradelli chocolates! The list goes on from there. The bed was soft and cushy, fit for the Princess and the Pea. We enjoyed the sense of isolation with the multi-tiered landscaping, trees with bird feeders, complete with two patio chairs for relaxing outdoors. Barb was a friendly and thoughtful host. Our pre-trip communications were pleasant and, prior to our arrival, she sent us her recommendations for activities and restaurants to help us make plans for our visit. This is a special place!
We loved the cottage. It was even better than it looked. Everything about it was done in such good taste. The bed was so beautiful and comfortable, beautiful linens and pillows. We so enjoyed lying in bed and watching the birds at the feeders right outside the large glass doors. Barb left us a bottle of wine which we shared outside in the garden while we had appetizers before walking to town for our dinner. I do not hesitate to highly recommend the Guest Cottage for a romantic get away or just a very fine place to stay in Carmel. I've stayed In many different homes and this ranks right up there on all accounts...well done!
Barb's cottage was just as described in her listing and the pictures are accurate. As other reviewers mentioned, Barb is wonderful host and her cottage was stocked with everything from coffee and sugar, cleaning items, clean crisp sheets and fluffy towels. We made breakfast every morning using the gas range. We used her reference library to help us identify the varied flora and fauna in the area. I now can identify a Stellar Jay : )
We visited in September and the nights were cool. There is no a/c in case that's something you would want, we didn't mind and the ceiling fan was strong to cool the cottage in the evening.
If we are ever lucky enough to come back we would book Barb's place again.
My husband and I enjoyed this exquisite and quiet cottage that is well appointed and accurately photographed, with the addition of intentional thoughtfulness for the needs of any guest. We enjoyed the bright skylights and luxurious surroundings that allowed us a restful vacation despite forest fires that affected the weather during our stay-- we felt as though we were bathed in sunshine even on a foggy morning. Barb's attentiveness to decor and treats for guests (from aroma therapy with bath products to salty and sweet snacks) added daily surprises and a spa feel to our stay. We enjoyed the gardens and bird watching on this well tended property in between our jaunts to the Monterey Bay aquarium, the coastal drives and walks, and the excellent restaurants recommended in the guest book. We definitely plan to return!
We loved our stay in the Quiet Wooded Guest Cottage! It is so warm and feels like a home away from home. All the accents and decor are thoughtful and meant to make guests feel comfortable- which was exactly the effect it had on us. It is only a little over a mile into town and the homes in the area make the walk fantastic. It's very quiet in the area and the bed is nice and cozy. I never take naps but had no problem taking one here! The outside patio is host to so many different kinds and colors of birds, you almost feel like the home sits in a bird sanctuary! That said, it is never loud but so peaceful...
Do yourself a favor when you are considering traveling to Carmel-by-the-Sea and book this cottage. You will love it!
