Property description

Looking for a place to stay during the Steinbeck Festival? (http://www.steinbeck.org/pages/steinbeck-festival-2014)
Welcome to the cozy, wonderful Cottage of River Winds, a unique and wonderful all-heart redwood cottage designed by early California architect Julia Morgan! This year we celebrate the 100th anniversary of our cottage, the heart of our family's memories for 3 generations--and soon to be yours, too. Step back in time in this wonderfully preserved, immaculate home, truly a historic gem of old Carmel. Open beams, all-heart redwood walls, many original features, a stone fireplace, large sunny patio, antique furniture and original oil paintings of the area.

We are happy to share this family treasure with you. The cottage stands amid a large, wild garden on Carmel Point, just two blocks from Carmel Beach and three from Carmel River Beach. It is close to everything--just one mile to Carmel Village, about 1/2 mile to the Carmel Mission, and easy access to Hwy 1. Fully supplied with cable TV, DVD player, iPod player, secure wireless internet, and everything you need for a comfortable stay.

We mostly rent by week or month; shorter stays in wintertime. If the simple peacefulness of bygone times speaks to your heart, you will fall in love with the Cottage of River Winds.

Location

Quaint, beautiful Carmel-by-the-Sea has often been called the world's most dramatic meeting of land and sea. Come to relax, take quiet walks, body surf, boogie board, go deep-sea fishing, play one of hundreds of area golf courses, take winery tours, eat at fabulous restaurants. Or just stay home by the fire in our 100-year-old Julia Morgan cottage and nourish your soul.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1919

About the owner: Our great-aunt Etta (in the blue dress) settled here at the Cottage with her friend, Kelly, after World War I. They ran the Cottage of River Winds as a Bed & Breakfast for many years, through many days of hard work and grace. The Cottage has been in our family for 3 generations. Our parents loved and cared for this beautiful property until their deaths a few years ago, when my brothers and I took over. We try to take care of it in the way that Etta would do, providing peaceful simplicity in an atmosphere of beauty at 'the greatest meeting of land and sea.'

Why the Owner Chose Carmel By the Sea:
The Cottage of River Winds is our family's treasure. We were blessed to enjoy many of our best family memories here while growing up, and we enjoy sharing this remarkable, unique place with others who seek a simple, peaceful experience like this.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Cottage of River Winds lets you step back in time to a simpler day when the beauty of a garden, the whisper of rainfall on the roof, the peacefulness of a cup of tea in the morning sun, enrich your soul and feed your heart.
