BACKGROUND

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.

Keywords: Charming Cottage with open floor plan, Located just ten minutes inland from the ocean and Carmel Bay. Enjoy Carmel Valley's warmer micro-climate and Mountain views.

About Linda Wheaton

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'.

Linda Wheaton purchased this cottage in 1993

Why Linda Wheaton chose Central Coast California

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

A Slice of California Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Nestled in the rolling hills of Carmel Valley, my family and I found a slice of California Paradise. Linda and Larry welcomed us onto their gorgeous property where we took up residence for two nights in the Rose cottage. The airy, bright space with white oversized furniture and eclectic decor was reminiscent of a spread in a Pottery Barn catalog yet void of any pretentiousness--just pure comfort and tranquility. The highlights included a sprawling garden bursting with vegetation and vibrant flowers, and an outdoor fireplace to curl up to and drink a glass of wine or roast marshmallows. Thank you to a lovely couple for the family memories we will cherish for a lifetime.

Wonderful place, great location, excellent hosts

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! Linda and Larry are great hosts - we had several interesting conversations on the history of the property, the amazing oak tree, and things to do in Carmel and Carmel Valley. The location is really excellent, not far from Carmel proper but with a beautiful country feel. Great hiking/strolling at nearby Garland Park. Quail visited the yard, Canadian Geese honked their way up the valley over the river one morning and the vistas are great. The cottage is very well-equipped, there really isn't anything that you'll need that isn't there already. It's a perfect place for a getaway - relaxing, comfortable but with ample room.

Beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with Larry and Linda. The cottage was darling and couldn't have been a better home base for attending a wedding at the Holly Farm! Thanks and we'd love to come again!

Relaxing Location Close to DT Carmel & Coast

  • 5 of 5

This was such a Great Location in Carmel Valley, just 5 miles from Hwy 1 and DT Carmel shops and restaurants! Very relaxing property with great mountain views. Linda and Larry were great hosts and made booking easy. Was a great place to come back to after a day of sight seeing to relax on the private patio. Don't hesitate to stay here if you want to stay in a beautiful place "in the mountains"...but still be close enough to all the sights and DT Carmel! Thanks for a great visit...We loved it!
