We loved our stay here in the "Devon" cottage. This B&B has an especially quaint, homely, non-corporate feel to it. It's spitting distance from the beach and just a short walk into town. Our host was very friendly and chatty, eager to share local expertise and happy to help us out when we needed toothpaste and ibuprofen. The house cat... More

We have been staying here for several years now, and look forward to each trip! The hosts are fantastic, and did I mention can they cook! We love that they are dog friendly, so our whole family can enjoy a vacation together. We have stayed in different rooms/cottages over the years, all are very clean and comfortable. Kim C

We had a pleasant stay with the best breakfast you could ask for (homemade). The rooms are lovely and the hosts are very kind. We will definitely stay there again next time and we can recommend this place for everyone who doesn't want a regular hotel experience.

I had a wonderful stay at this charming B&B located just one block from the beach! The owners, Doug & Gretchen, were lovely, kind, and gracious. There was a plate of cookies and mints waiting for me in my room after check-in, and a large bottle of complimentary water. My room was very spacious with a comfy bed. The cottages... More

Enjoyed our recent stay in the "Devon" Cottage. The cottage was comfortable and roomy. The small kitchenette was very useful. Breakfasts were delicious! Located one block from scenic waterfront walk in quiet, lovely neighborhood.

I was unsure what to expect when booking the cottage, I thought it might be a little basic and decor old-fashioned, I was wrong the whole place is beautiful, we loved it.

We wish we had planned our trip to stay longer in Carmel. The town was beautiful and the Edgemere Cottages was charming and welcoming. Gretchen and Doug made a scrumptious breakfast. We hope we have the opportunity to stay at the cottages again sometime and would recommend the cottages to anyone!

For fourteen years, I have ONLY stayed in the Rosemont cottage at Edgemere Cottages when in Carmel. That says a lot. There are tons of well run, attractive inns in Carmel, but none combine the setting, ambiance, and excellent management of this Inn. Doug, Gretchen, and M'Kalah make us feel like favorite family members from the moment we arrive. Crank... More
