We stayed in the patio room for 2 nights in May. Edgemere was better than we ever could have expected. The house and setting are straight out of a fairy tale. The room and private bathroom were pristine and beautiful. The staff was constantly going above and beyond to make sure that our stay was perfect in every way. We...

Stayed here based on Tripadvisor rating. It was great. Very comfortable cottage, well appointed. Clean and quiet. Great gas burning fireplace. Best was the breakfast, which was supurb and served by the congenial owners. Will do this again.

Our first time staying at the Edgemere Cottages--just wish we had discovered it earlier! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Rosemont Cottage. We made use of the wood burning fireplace in the living room that was delightful. The bedroom is quite large with a vaulted ceiling and very comfortable bed. We came with our Golden Retriever who happens to love...

We loved this B&B. It was beautiful, quaint, peaceful and well located. The cottage was charming, and had everything we needed including a kitchen. The breakfasts were wonderful, and the owners were warm and helpful. The gardens are really beautiful- it is like staying in a lovely garden. We hope to return for a week, and sample more of beautiful...

We just stayed for 2 nights in one of the Edgemere Cottages...Devon. It was charming and comfortable, with a gas fireplace and comfy queen bed. The location is great....quiet street one block from the beach and the walk into town is quite enjoyable. A full breakfast is included and was simple but delicious. I would definitely stay here again.

We had a three night stay, booked online. The accommodation is individual cottages in the grounds of the owners house, set in an 'Arts & Craft' designed area of Carmel. Our Welcome was by Gretchen and Doug, the Innkeepers and our cottage was warmed by a welcoming fire on a cool day. Everything was clean and well fitted out with...

My second stay here. Feels so homey and close to everything. Family is nice and they are so helpful plus fix great breakfasts. This time we lit a fire and it was very cozy! I won't stay anywhere else.

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...

Thank you for your kind words. We have learned to "be prepared" for almost any need, for ourselves, and for our guests... Our location is truly unique, as we are located in the "residential" part of Carmel-by-the-Sea. The property was originally built as a family home in the 1920's. It was transformed into an inn/cottages in the 1950's. Being able...

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!
