Carmel Valley cottage description

Nourish yourself in nature. You can kick back, relax, and get rejuvenated for the coming season. You will feel a sense of peacefulness the minute you step foot on this special piece of property.
The Bunkhouse Suite is 400 square feet, with a 200 square foot deck. The rock walls that were built in the 1940's have lichen growing on them because the air is so pure.
If you want a place to get away from it all, this is it. The property is unique with the old hitching posts still in place from the original owners, and his old boat sits on top of his old wagon wheels. The stars are so clear and bright away from all the city lights, they really do put on a show at night. Or just sit by the pond and watch the ducks without a care in the world.
If you're lucky enough to be here on a Monday night, Michael Jones does dinners at the local Cachagua Store, just two minutes away. The menu has such a variety, that is sure to have something for everyone. Reservations are a must! He also does Sunday Breakfast. The Cachagua General Store is also open for your last minute groceries, wine, or beer.
So if you're ready to get away from the maddening crowds, and just chill,,,,this is your place,,,a sweet country retreat.
The Los Padres Dam, a short hike away, which is connected to the Carmel River is a view in itself, if you're a water person, you'll appreciate these waters.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Me and my favorite duck, he always wants a hug. I'm a singer/songwriter, and find this area to be the perfect place to do my writing. I wrote all the songs for my first CD up here by the stream. I love this property, and am working on a project now to have small, private concerts for local artists. Although I enjoy socializing, at the end of the day, there's no place like this place to forget the 'who's who, and the what's what'. Waking in the morning to the sound of the birds singing is my favorite alarm clock. I love spending time in the garden surrounded by my animals. Jeff loves to golf and there are plenty of courses on the Pennisula. Another one of his passions is retstoring vintage cars. He has a 68 Camero always ready to be fired up.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
                  The weather is the main reason I love this place. The fog may linger in Carmel and Monterey, but not here. I can totally relax here, just something in the air. Warm sunshine, clean air, and healing sounds of nature, with some treasures of days gone by.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Spacious and adorable with a sense of calm. The deck is a great place to connect with nature, create, with mother nature. You can use the outdoor grill and sink with plenty of utensils. The Bunkhouse Suite is a sweet retreat decorated with pieces that have been collected from old farmhouses. An extra large shower, with windows in every room. Open up the windows, get some fresh air, and connect to the sounds of nature. There really are a billion stars in the sky,,,,you can see them from the deck at night. Some of the furnishings came out of an old bunkhouse on the farm where I grew up, and I've always treasured them, so when I was putting the old bureau in the bedroom, bunkhouse suite became the name.
