My wife and I spent the weekend here at the end of a trip to California. This B&B is quite lovely, in a quiet neighborhood several blocks away from the busy Ocean Avenue, and is just one short block away from the spectacular Carmel beach. The innkeepers were very friendly and accommodated our vegan diets. We had a small kitchenette... More

This was our second stay at The Edgemere Cottages. It was as good as our last stay. I was worried because Gretchen, our hostess, was away. The fear was that her baking skills which are varied and great, would be missed at breakfast. Enter Doug, Gretchen's ruggedly handsome, Harley riding husband. Well he made the most amazing French toast that... More

I luckily found Edgemere Cottages as I was planning a last minute trip to Carmel. This fairytale B&B only has a handful of rooms, and I was able to snag the last room available -- the patio room. While this is the only room attached to the main house, the private patio was adorable, and the room itself was perfect... More

We stayed only one night at the Edgemere Cottages, and I sincerely wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in the Devon cottage and it was so cute. A very cozy and inviting room with a comfy bed and lots of pillows, Tv (which we got a personal run-down of how to use), a little woodstove style fireplace, a... More

What a truly pleasant surprise! Now I don't want to gush, because I want to be able to get a room the next time I'm in the Carmel area! But it's hard not to.

We are B&B owners ourselves and we recognize the earmarks of good place to stay. This B&B (cottages), gets high marks! The Picadilly Cottage that we stayed in was charming and just perfect for a stay at the beach. The beach - just a block away of course in Carmel is fabulous!
