Enchanting Quiet Wooded Guest Cottage

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great place to stay and great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful quiet cottage, convenient location, great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely cottage. Everything about it is comfortable, and everything you could possibly want is there, including a bottle of local wine and more cookies and chocolate than you can eat. We awoke to bird songs and had our morning coffee on the patio surrounded by flowers. We walked to town for concerts in the Sunset Center and the Mission, hiking and picnicking in the Mission Trail Park (thanks to one of Barb's helpful books) and strolls along the beach and through the downtown shopping area. If you don't mind a few hills, it's an easy and safe walk downtown, even at night. We didn't use our car the entire time we were there. Barb and Terry are welcoming and knowledgeable hosts. I would stay here again.

Delightful cottage in the picturesque town of Carmel

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable and beautifully presented cottage. Decorated in a French country theme it is cosy and stocked with everything required for a few days away. We were greeted with a bottle of local red wine and chocolates. We especially enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels feeding. We heard the raccoon but didn't ever see it! Barb was available when we needed her and was very helpful and friendly. A wonderful HomeAway experience. Would highly recommend this accommodation.

The perfect cottage!

  • 5 of 5

The most beautiful, quaint and lovely cottage we have ever stayed in! This was the perfect place to stay for the last four days on our honeymoon! Perfectly nestled away in Carmel conveniently located to everything you want to see and do! Barb's passion and love are in the details in the cottage, and it was everything we had hoped for and more! I highly recommend staying here whether it is for a short get away or a long stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Carmel and all of Barb's recommendations guided us to great restaurants, scenic views and shops. This cottage was just perfect, and with the most comfortable bed ever! Thank you for being such wonderful hosts and we hope to return!

Paradise in Carmel!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in this enchanting, peaceful, beautiful cottage and it won't be our last! As close to perfection as you could ask for in one of the most glorious spots on this plant: Carmel, CA. As much as I want to share with all of you, I would love to keep this gem to ourselves! From the impeccable decor inside to the lovely serenity of the flower-bird-squirrel filled garden outside the sliding glass doors, pretty hard for my wife and myself to find a fault! Oh, I guess there is one fault: we can't be there 365 days a year!
