The Perfect Carmel Retreat

Log Haven is every bit as wonderful as it looks in the pictures. Six friends and I stayed for a weekend in early October and absolutely loved it! The experience couldn't have been better: the house is beautifully maintained and was perfectly prepared for our arrival with plenty of extra linens, soap and shampoo, quality pots, pans, and dishes in the kitchen, and even a welcome gift basket. Cheryl was great, both to talk to over the phone when booking the rental, and when she stopped by shortly after check-in to say hello and make sure that we had everything we needed. The location is perfect as well; a block from the beach and two short blocks from Ocean Avenue. Highly, highly recommended; I'd stay again in an instant!

Third time's a charm

Home Post Cottage has become our favorite stay in Carmel, third year in a row at this fabulous property one block off the beach. Under new local ownership, the Cottage has the personal touches of home away from home. With it's mostly updated Cottages, furniture & fixtures, it's hard to beat the ultimate comfort that awaits you on your visit to Carmel. We enjoy the kitchen and it's ammeniteis just enogh to keep us still hungry for the walk up to the nearby restaurants. Home Port is the hub of the five Cottages and if you book several Cottages you'll feel right in the middle of things. Sitting in the living room, you look out both sides of the electric start gas log brick fireplace to the ocean and and beyond, open the windows and you feel like your on the beach without the sand. Take your coffee and danish out onto the semi-private patio and wake up with the sun and sounds of the surf. You won't have to fight to find a parking spot for the car, it's right outside your door, and walk the few blocks to town.

Best just got better

The Cottages have just gotten better under the new local ownership group. Third year we've stayed in one or more of the five Cottages and everything has been improved on; landsacping, new paint, new floors, new furniture & fixtures, everything that needed upgrading, was. The bed was so good, we had to write to the owner's to find out the make and model. Still the best location for a stay in Carmel, close enough to walk to town, but far enough away that you do not feel the traffic, and the relaxing surf is just audible enough to put you to sleep. Moon Gate is the most private Cottage for a single or couple that want to get away, and what a great private sun patio.

Loghaven Cottage Was Fantastic

We were celebrating a birthday and had the chance to stay at the Loghaven Cottage on the Carmel Cottage Inn property. The home was beautiful. Amazing 50's style appliances (brand new, just designed to look that way) made updated kitchen look like was vintage. The home is tastefully decorated. The grounds are gorgeous, and the location, 1 block over from Ocean Street and one block up from the beach, was ideal. You could walk all around easily and hear the waves at night. Highly recommended.

60th Birthday Treat

My wife treated us, 6 adults, to a stay in Log Haven Cottage for my birthday. The cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished and very well equipped throughout, especially the kitchen. The property was cleaned twice during out week's stay and the towels also changed twice, which is very refreshing. The location was great for the beach with a one block walk to the golden sands and blue Pacific Ocean. Carmel was walkable from the cottage but parking was easy if you wished to drive. There is an abundance of eating places in Carmel to suit everyones taste; the shopping experience was fabulous, according to the ladies! The surrounding area includes the fantastic Pebble Beach golf course (which I played!), Seventeen Mile Drive and the Big Sur, which, when taken into account makes the location almost perfect! Be prepared for some days being misty in August and pack a couple of jumpers otherwise just kick back and enjoy the whole experience. Given the opportunity (to quote the a certain movie star) 'We will be back!' (England)
