After a leisurely drive down the coast highway, We arrived at the Edgemere cottages, located away from the main part of town on a quiet street close to the beach, stayed in the Rosemont cottage, a very charming, romantic spot. Perfect location for a morning walk on the beach.
We booked this trip months in advance for a birthday getaway and it was perfect. The cottages are quintessential Carmel storybook and we enjoyed our stay in the Rosemont Cottage. It was very spacious with great vaulted ceilings in the living room and bedroom and a very nice kitchenette. Very private too. The grounds are very peaceful and lovely without being overly manicured. It was very welcoming and comfortable especially since we brought our 2 large labradors. The location was ideal...just a block to the beach where we hung out most of the time. An easy stroll to town but off the beaten path which made it more peaceful.
I was doing a solo stay (left hubby and son at home). I stayed in the Devon cottage. I loved the half door where I could let the ocean breeze in but later shut and lock it. The beach is just a block away as well as the scenic walk. It is in a neighborhood and I felt totally safe being by myself. The cottage had everything I needed-comfortable bed, desk, chair, TV, table. The bathroom is updated and modern. There are stairs to a little loft kitchen with a decent sized frig, 2-burner stove, microwave, and sink. There are dishes, wine glasses, and pots and pans. I only used the coffee maker and microwave. They provided coffee, teas, fruit, yogurts, sweet bread, and hot cereal packets.
