Edgemere Cottages

San Antonio 4 S E of 13 , Carmel By The Sea, CA 93923 USA (Show map)


Edgemere features quaint private cottages, homemade "chef's choice" breakfast, beautiful gardens, and is just a one block walk to Carmel Beach. Located just steps from the white sands of Carmel Beach, Edgemere Cottages is the perfect setting for a romantic escape to the Monterey Peninsula. Blending European-style architecture with the beauty of the natural surroundings, Edgemere features three very unique cottages, with one lovely room inside the Inn… Rosemont, Piccadilly, Devon cottages and the Patio Room each feature a wide variety of modern conveniences, yet each retains the charm and character of an earlier era. Built in the early 1920s, Edgemere is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few minutes from Carmel's popular downtown shopping district, where wonderful dining possibilities abound. World-class golf is hardly a chip shot away, and if you listen closely, you can hear the sound of waves washing upon the shore at night...

A charming B&B that fits the Carmel ambience

We loved our stay at Edgemere. Is is located off the main drag of Carmel so it was quiet and private, yet only a few blocks away from all the shops and restaurants. It is also one block from the ocean and we could hear the waves from our cottage. A perfect location. Gretchen and Doug were a delight and totally attentive to our needs. Doug is a great cook and we had one of the best quiches ever for breakfast. This was our first stay there and we stay there again when we go to Carmel.

Our rooms were clean, well appointed and comfortable. The setting and location deserve even higher marks but the grading system only allowed for 'exceeded my expectations'. The breakfasts were delicious and relaxed. When rated along with the friendly, and capable innkeepers, this gem is a keeper. We'll definitely be back.

The sound and smell of the surf

The cottage we stayed in had a small living room/kitchenette are but a nice sized bedroom. It is set up very nice for 3 people with a king bed, a single bed, and a roll out couch in the living room. The woodburning fireplace was ready with kindling, etc., though we didn't have opportunity to try it out as the weather was too warm. The breakfast set up was a little quirky because you have to walk through the kitchen to get to the dining room, but otherwise the food was good and the hostess was attentive and friendly. The location was great, with only a one block walk to the beach. We would stay there again. The only real negative was in regards to the housecleaning. All looked fine, but the shower curtain was mildewed. I mentioned it to the owner, who thanked me and said it would be addressed. A good response, but I shouldn't have had to tell her.
