Charming, unique, quiet and private, a real sanctuary. This charming rustic yet elegant authentic post adobe home is located on almost an acre of gorgeous oak and sycamore trees, beside a seasonal creek right in the heart of Carmel Valley Village. The cottage is 800 sf, private home on a large property, NOT a guesthouse on someone's property. One bedroom with queen bed, full kitchen, living room, gorgeous bathroom all done in Mexican tile, and a large den.
Many artistic touches grace this home, from unique handmade lighting (the owner is a lighting designer) to antiques, to western memorabilia. A well-mannered dog is welcome (at no extra charge!). You will feel miles away, yet Carmel Valley Village is a 2 minute drive (or 30 minute lovely wooded walk) away!
This post adobe home is completely furnished and turn-key for your stay. Everything is provided, from furnishings, linens, kitchen ware. Enjoy the book and movie library. Lush expansive grounds are perfect for relaxation or get-togethers with friends.
This is a walkers/hikers dream where its warm and sunny with a country setting away from the coastal fog. Walk a mile down our country road to the best swimming hole on the Carmel River, and 1 ½ mile to the best dining and wine tasting of Carmel Valley Village.

About the owner: We moved to gorgeous Carmel Valley from San Francisco right after we were married in 2000. We lived in our home until 2008, enjoying riding our horses, playing and singing in the local restaurants (we are musicians and artists), and making life-long friends. In 2008 we moved to Los Angeles, but did not want to lose our magical home. Renting it out for vacation rentals allows us to visit from time to time, never often enough. We know you will enjoy it as much as we do, everyone does! Pamela and Bruce Forman
Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley: We fell in love with the classic Carmel Valley post adobe 'early California' styling of this home. The adobe bricks were handmade right here in Carmel Valley in the 1950s. But what we love most is the large piece of land our cottage sits on. So many areas to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Coming from 'the city' it is a little slice of heaven . . .
The Unique Benefits at this House: It's so peaceful and private here - the view from every window is gorgeous - trees, gardens, hills. Wonderful walks right outside the door, up the canyon to the Kahn Ranch extension of Garland Park, down the canyon to the glorious river. The town of Carmel Valley Village is the friendliest place on earth, and the safest - people still don't lock their doors here! Have a drink at the Running Iron up the road, you could be sitting next to a celebrity, or a local cowboy (yes, they still exist, and we have 'em here) Be sure to take a walk at night, I've never seen more stars ANYWHERE.
