Log Haven Cottage, built prior to 1910, is one of the oldest buildings in Carmel. You enter this charming log cabin from a large stone patio. The first floor has a king and a queen bedroom, a full bath and a powder room, a living room complete with a sofa/sleeper and an inviting gas fireplace, a formal dining room and a fun retro-modern kitchen with a nook. The upstairs has a bedroom with a king sized bed and a twin, a full bath, and a second living room that also has a sofa sleeper.
This picturesque property is just steps from Carmel Beach, the Pacific Ocean and downtown Carmel. With nearby shopping and boutiques, restaurants, golf, scenic drives and so much more, this is the perfect destination for your next getaway.
Just one block from Carmel Beach and a few blocks away from downtown Carmel.
My family and I have lived in the area since 2008. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Log Haven Cottage was a labor of love which took most of 2012 to complete and something we strive to maintain. We wanted it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.
Cheryl Assemi purchased this cottage in 2011
For us, it was love at first sight. Log Haven and all 4 of our other listings (Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549, Moon Gate 938556 and Sky Way 938553) reside on one property, collectively called the Carmel Cottage Inn. The cottages are full time vacation rentals with hotel status, which allows us to rent by the night. The gardens and patios are designed to give each cottage a feeling of privacy. The proximity of our cottages, patios and gardens to each other, as well as to the beach and downtown Carmel, make them equally ideal for a single cottage rental or for larger groups, family reunions, etc. To keep the houses fresh for longer visits, we arrange for periodic light housekeeping for stays of 3 nights or longer.
Built prior to 1910, Log Haven Cottage has an elegantly quirky charm. Almost every door in the house is different, and the staircase leading upstairs was built at a time when staircases were quite narrow. It's loaded with closets and cubbies. We hope our guests will love Log Haven Cottage as much as we do.
We had a wonderful time at Log Haven Cottage. When we arrived, we decided right away that the pictures online did not do the home justice. The cottage was spacious, very clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated! The gardens were lush and well maintained. The customer service from the planning process to check out time was outstanding. The location was great....steps away from the beach and a walkable distance to downtown Carmel. We golfed at nearby Pebble Beach Golf Links, took the very beautiful 17 Mile Drive, visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium and enjoyed several restaurants and shopped in downtown Carmel every day. We would very much like to return to Log Haven or even one of the other Carmel Cottage homes and would strongly recommend this property to friends and family. Thank you for a lovely, relaxing vacation.
My entire family (9 of us including 3 kids) spent 3 nights to celebrate my 60th birthday. The cottage is simply adorable; perfect condition and decor, without losing its historical flavor. The layout worked well for our group, though the stairs leading to the upper suite were narrow, but we had no problem negotiating them. The yard is gorgeous and the location superb. It's a very short walk to the beach, and just a little further to town, so we were able to walk to any restaurant we chose. We liked the proximity to the La Playa as we enjoyed cocktails and small plates there. Nice, quiet street. The owner was delightful, checking in with us to make sure all was well. The kitchen was stocked with coffee and tea which was a nice touch. We will definitely be back, everyone loved this house!
Log Haven is the perfect home away from home. Simply elegant and quite comfortable, Cheryl provides the most inviting environment that I can hardly wait for my next visit to Carmel and booking our stay with Carmel Cottage Inn.
I actually stayed in this property as a child, and delighted in seeing the beautiful interior created by the new owner. There was so much attention paid to detail that friends we entertained there delighted in the cottage almost as much as we did. The housekeeping staff is extraordinary-eager to please you on the smallest of requests. And the gardens with multiple sitting areas are as pretty as you could ever find in Carmel. They afford guests privacy and yet you are so convenient to Ocean Ave. I've already called family & friends telling them to experience it for themselves. This particular cottage is larger than most, but in my opinion, to truly experience Carmel, one should stay in a cottage.
Log Haven cottage was more than we could have ever wished for. We were in Carmel by the Sea for our sons wedding.
The groomsmen had there pictures taken at the cabin while they were getting ready. Photographers loved the place!! We all just loved the house. Cheryl was very helpful, house was spotless, the gardens beautiful, and you could hear the ocean waves from the house. Would have loved to spend more than 3 nights!!
It was a group of us girls that went a girls wine trip. We had so much fun and the house was perfect for us. It was adorable and had everything we needed.
Log Haven is set in the beautiful garden of the Carmel Cottage Inn, located in Carmel-by-the-Sea. There are nearby restaurants of all cuisine, ideal shopping and boutiques, art galleries, beach, scenic walks and drives, golf and so much more!
...just one block away from Carmel Beach and a few blocks away from downtown Carmel.
Other Activities: The surrounding area is so much fun: restaurants, horseback riding and wineries in Carmel Valley, the wharf and the Monterey Aquarium in Monterey, the light house and scenery in Pacific Grove, the coast drive to Big Sur.
