In an exclusive area of sunny Carmel Valley sits our charming, light filled cottage. Newly remodeled with beautiful hickory floors and french doors opening to lawns and flower gardens. The Master bedroom has a queen bed with high quality linens and the guest bedroom has 4 single beds with down comforters. The beautiful kitchen is right out of a country magazine boasting marble counter tops, Jerusalem stone floors a Wolf stove, Thermador ovens and a Miele dishwasher.
Sitting at our picnic table, overlooking our vineyard and the hills of Carmel Valley, you may even think you are in Tuscany. There is no better place to rest, relax and rejuvenate. Although fine restaurants, golf courses, hiking trails are just a stone's throw away, you may be compelled to stay home and enjoy the peace and serenity of our cottage.
Our property is only a 12 minute drive to Carmel-by-the-Sea with it's beautiful beaches, shopping and fine restaurants, yet far enough away to be out of the persistent summer fog that envelops Carmel.
This property is best suited for people who want to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing retreat.
My husband and I are in the construction business. We remodeled the cottage after purchasing it in January of 2011. Everything in the home is new and reflects the care and quality that goes into our workmanship.
Naz purchased this cottage in 2011
After shopping for homes for 6 months and not finding anything we liked, we instantly fell in love with this property. There is just something magical about it. We have lived in and around Carmel for the last 40 years. We love the sunshine and the spaciousness of Carmel Valley.
We have stayed at VRBO listings all over the country and have yet to find one that matches the quality, cleanliness and beauty of our home. The expansive lawns, flower gardens,views of Garland Ranch State Park and the welcoming warmth of our cottage is unsurpassed.
My wife and I, retired, spent February and March 2016 in Spring Cottage on a beautiful 1 acre property surrounded by hedges and flowers, mountain views, adjacent vineyard, very private, 1/2 block from home of Nazneen and Neil Mac Dougall owners and our hosts. The immaculate cottage has good sized rooms, comfortably appointed, very bright with french doors and large windows in every room, all as represented. Equipped large kitchen, washer and dryer, well appointed bath rooms, 1 adjacent to each bedroom (comfortable beds). "Homey". Surrounding local is rural, upscale acreage properties, wooded along winding local roads, ideal for my morning walk; Garland Ranch Park close by for serious hiking. The Mac Douglas were gracious, helpful and available if needed, providing us a list of favorite restaurants--3 excellent in tiny quaint Carmel Valley Village 2 miles away, home to many wine tasting locations. 25 minutes to Carmel by the Sea and Monterey minutes beyond. The valley is very beautiful; and Spring Cottage is an ideal retreat to relax, pampering winter weather often warm enough for sun bathing. The cottage and location are both quite special. We plan to return next year.
This beautiful home is surrounded by plants, flowers, trees and bushes, giving it natural privacy. Located on a beautiful country road (great for walks), it is also conveniently less than 10 minutes from Carmel Valley, 20 minutes from Carmel by the Sea, and 20 minutes from Monterey. The wonderful owners live next door, and are super responsive if you need anything, but are also very respectful of your privacy. They remodeled the house recently, and it has a brand-new, high-end feel. When we were there, the doors/windows did not have screens, but the owners are in the process of having screens made now. We’d definitely stay again.
I am a little hesitant to write a review on this beautiful home--because I'm afraid the secret will get out! My husband and 2 girls spent a wonderful month in this gorgeous place. Inside and out, the house and the grounds are unbelievably well done. The owners are there if you need them--but never intrusive. We have stayed in Carmel the last 4 summers. It was our first time staying in Carmel Valley--and was by far our best trip to the Carmel area. Thanks Naz and Neil!
My husband and I spent a month in Spring Cottage. Everything was first class from the minute you walk through the gate in front of the house. Excellent taste was used in the decor, design and comfort of the house making it easy for us to have a home away from home for our holiday. Gardens are one of my favorite things and this garden was planned with loving care with flowers in bloom in every direction. English roses were at their peak upon our arrival so we an opportunity to have them in the house the entire month. The neighborhood was a beautiful place for daily walks as was a local Regional park nearby. My husband enjoyed many good golf courses nearby as well. This proved to be good location for a quiet, restful holiday and the owners couldn't have been more gracious, friendly and helpful. We definitely recommend this cottage and will stay here again the next time we're in Carmel Valley.
My husband and I stayed in this lovely cottage for four months while we completed the construction of our new home. Everything about it was wonderful -- the decorating, the patios, the yard, the kitchen, the bathtub and most of all the owners. For us the generous closet space was amazing and we even had room to set up our computer and printer in the family room. The views off the patios are incredible and you are just a stone's throw away from Garland Ranch where you can hike to your heart's content. The cottage became more than a place for us to stay. It became our sanctuary and the owners became our friends.
What an incredible place! My family had a wonderful time in this beautifully done cottage. We loved absolutely everything about the cottage, the landscaping, the location and the fabulous owners! The attention to detail that went in to the cottage makes it a place you want to come back to time and time again.
Carmel Valley Village which is a short 2 mile drive away, has 19 wineries and tasting rooms. 5 miles away is our charming local organic Farm stand- Earthbound Farms, with an organic cafe.
