This property is a small cottage retreat near the Monterey/PG area. It’s easily accessible to many locations on the Peninsula. It's a private stand alone cottage in the back of our property has a queen bed in the living area (see photo’s). Has a kitchen and a nice bathroom - was built in the 40's. Rumored John Steinbeck visited the property. It's not new construction ......Please keep in mind if you need new “Its not” but it's charming. Mattress is comfortable, but firm. There’s a wall heater and a fireplace. Netflix is installed. Located in the Monterey PG area on a hilltop. Parking in front of main house. Garden is beautiful. When staying guests have easy access back to cottage. We have 2 dogs and two cats. Neither comes into the cottage. There’s a separate private entry pathway. Also a enclosed private brick patio in front of cottage door. Safeway - Trader Joe’s- nice restaurants are close within walking or a quick drive. If you have a third party (small adult or child) loft bed above queen bed - needs ladder to get up to. We prefer 2 people staying here but a 3rd can be added. Fourth person too much. Pls contact in advance to discuss arrangements re: loft. Extra fee for loft. Rates higher during major events. We prefer staying least three nights but two's ok. PLS SEE TOPIC: "NOTES - Any additional information that travelers need to know about your property and or terms." Re - paperwork.... The calendar is up to date. Please come, stay and enjoy the Monterey Peninsula!!
