For the past five years we have been coming here for our annual anniversary weekend get-away. It is always a perfect weekend for us. Staying at Edgemere has become something we look forward to all year long. We love the quaint cottages and wonderful breakfasts served. It's also wonderful to be so close to the beach and enjoy taking several...

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 stayed just for 1 night over the labour day weekend and wish we could have stayed longer. We stayed in Devon cottage which is charming and had...

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...

We are ALWAYS happy to have people visit us again, and again... Truly there is no better compliment than to have guests request us, and our specific cottages. We are truly blessed to be working in an amazing environment where people really WANT to come. We try to keep everything clean, enjoyable, and of course, up-to-date into the 21st century,...

Myself, husband & daughter stayed here last February and what a wonderful find, we originally booked for one night as we were travelling down the coast but just couldn't leave and ended up staying on for another two nights, close to the beach and close to shops but a nice distance from it all, its just pure bliss.

Yes, we are always happy to have guests visit us again & again. We have a very special spot near the beach which means it is very quiet at night. A good night's sleep is always a welcome part of the trip!!! thanks again for your enthusiasm with our property!!

Gretchen and Doug were kind enough to honor an out-dated gift certificate. The place was charming, and breakfast was delicious, especially as Gretchen accommodated a particular request of mine. Doug was helpful with his advice, and the location couldn't be better. While there are many, many places to stay in Carmel, I would definitely recommend Edgemere Cottages.

Thank you so very much for your kind words. we really do try to make all of our guests feel welcome, and as if they are "coming home"... to their beloved aunt's & uncle's house, if not to "Mom's house"...

We spent a lovely evening here. The room was quaint and cute and impeccably clean. We stayed at a few places during our one month holiday and I can say that this was a very comfortable bed and slept like a dream! The gorgeous beach is only steps away around the corner.The only (very slight) negative is that the garden...

We have stayed at Edgemere once or twice a year for the past five years. Doug & Gretchen are wonderful hosts. The location is perfect, walking distance to town, but far enough away that it is very quiet and only 1/2 block to the beach. The cottages are so cute and roomy. We have stayed in all of them.

This place is a wonderful and charming B & B. It is everything you would want from a stay. The place is a very close walk to a beautiful beach. However, I would caution those that want to walk to town regularly due to the distance. This is especially true if you are dressed nicely or are cold-natured. The cottage...

Living and working in Carmel-by-the-Sea is truly a wonderful experience. We are very happy to share our cottages with all who travel to Carmel. Thank you for noticing the details which always strive to provide for our guests. Our location hear Carmel beach means that you will almost always hear the waves while at our property.
