Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: We purchased our cottage with the idea of using it until we retired. Eclipsed by events, we needed more time to get the cottage to suit our needs. After eight years, in 2011 myself and my husband (pictured) moved to the West Coast, and decided to make the cottage a romantic getaway for others to enjoy instead. Don's travels took him through Carmel Valley thirty years ago, in the Army is when he decided the micro-climate of Carmel Valley and the village charm was the place to eventually be when retired. We bought a house in the village two years ago and completely refurbished the cottage for special occasions. The cottage was listed on VRBO in 2013.
Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
We loved the unique 'away from it all' location of this cottage. It will appeal to the nature-lovers and artists, an idyllic place to relax, find your bearings and reorient yourself.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Behold the sun's warmth as it soaks the length of the loft-style bedroom from early morning until dusk. Enjoy the majestic view of the trees from your perch out the floor length windows at your feet and views of the valley and moon at your elbow. Open the front door in the morning to enjoy the full effects from the south-facing facade and turn the reversible fan on if you need to create a stir. A Complimentary bottle of local wine will await you.
