Property description

Escape the crowds of tourists and find peace in this quiet and private guest unit, tucked at the back of our 3 acre organic farm. Wake up and visit the chickens, pick some apples and vegetables, and set out to explore the wonders of the Monterey Peninsula. The kitchenette is equipped with a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. Restaurants are just a short walk down the lane. Carmel-by-the-Sea is just 4 miles in one direction, and Carmel Valley Village only 7 miles in the other. The farm sits just beyond the fog line steps away from golf at Quail Lodge, The Refuge spa, and extensive hiking trails at Garland Park. One bedroom has a queen sized Temperpedic bed while the other has a twin over full bunk bed.

Just beyond the fog line lies this beautiful 3 acre gentleman's farm. Extensive organic vegetable gardens, old growth fruit trees, and a charming chicken coop are framed by a backdrop of mountains. The rugged coast line boasts some of the world's most famous scenic drives. At one end of the valley lies a quaint village filled with wine tasting rooms and local artisan shops, while the other end lands you in Carmel-by-the-Sea, famous for the Mission and incredible antique shops and dining. Whether your passion is cars, golf, hiking, biking, food, wine, shopping, or the sea, you are sure to find more than you hoped for in Carmel.
