Carmel Valley cottage description

Our Carmel Coastal Style cottage is located in beautiful Carmel Valley, just minutes from the Pacific Ocean and the town of Carmel-By-The Sea and Carmel Valley Village.

The Rose Cottage offers a spacious 400+ square foot floor plan. Located within our private gated compound, you will find the cottage nestled within rose hedges, seasonal vegetable gardens, fruit trees and grand views of the Santa Lucia Mountain Range. Relax and enjoy all the attractions and landscape Monterey County has to offer in a garden setting with fresh air and great views.


The guest cottage is minutes to Carmel-By-The Sea (6 min), Pebble Beach (10), Monterey (10), Laguna Seca (15), Pacific Grove (25) and Big Sur (45). Winery tasting rooms can be found in a number of Carmel Valley locations. Nearby restaurants include Cafe Rustica, Jefferies, Will's Fargo, Baja Cantina and Bernardus Marinus.


In the early 1900's, when the main residence was constructed in an existing pear orchard, Carmel Valley was primarily agricultural. Today, Carmel Valley is dotted with homes, farms, ranches, vineyards shopping and restaurants. In the early 1900's, the property consisted of a Craftman-style main residence and at least four other structures, including the existing barn and a summer kitchen. From the time we acquired the property in 1993, we have worked to restore the property's elements to their original beauty while incorporating modern comforts. The Guest Cottage has been re-purposed from the former summer kitchen structure, retaining the history and charm of California history while offering cozy accommodations in a rural environment.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: Owners Linda and Larry Wheaton have resided in Carmel Valley since Larry retired from a computer sales and marketing career. Larry grew up in the Monterey area and hiked over the hills separating Monterey and Carmel Valley as a kid. 'I quickly discovered that the best summer time micro-climate on the Peninsula was in Carmel Valley. So when I retired, Carmel Valley was the place we wanted to live'.

                  Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
                  We purchased our Farm House and out-buildings in Carmel Valley's in 1993 We were drawn to the location because of it's proximity to recreation, mountain views and weather. We have lovingly remodeled, replanted and rebuilt the gardens and updated the out-buildings much the way they were in the 1920's. Our children and grand-children now come here to ride the tractor, pick tomatoes, apples, apricots and otherwise enjoy the clear fresh air. Our guest cottage is the last out-building to be remodeled and is now our vacation rental.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Our location is close to Carmel-by-the-Sea but also is just minutes to Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, Pacific Grove and Mazda Raceway at Laguna Seca. Jefferies, our favorite breakfast and lunch hang-out, is two minutes away while the Carmel Valley Coffee Roasting Company is just as close. But the larger Monterey County area is really what attracts people from all over the world. You can relax on our Guest Cottage Patio, resting from a busy day (eating an hors d'oeuvre you made with fresh tomatoes from the garden), and in 8 minutes be sitting at the piano bar at Clint Eastwood's Mission Ranch wondering what to have for dinner.
