"There's not much I can add to the fabulous reviews for this MLC and the host and hostess. The location is wonderful (8 or 9 of the best restaurants in Trip Adviser for Pacific Grove are within a few blocks walking distance, Lovers Point is just a few blocks away, the beach trail for Pacific Grove and Monterey is also a few blocks away, the Monterey Aquarium is about a five minute drive, you can walk to the Farmers Market...and well, you get the picture).
The cottage itself is charming, beautiful, and functional. The entrance has beautiful flowers in a little well kept garden and there are also gorgeous flowers on the patio. The cottage walls have lovely pictures with a lighthouse and nautical theme.
The owners have thought about everything to make your stay comfortable and safe (flashlight on the desk, frequently used tools in the desk drawers, candles if there is a power outage, etc.). Everything is well thought out. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a gourmet meal. My wife and I loved watching movies in the very comfortable recliner chairs. The bed has high thread count sheets.
Here's example of how accommodating the owners are: My wife and I stayed in the MLC for more than a month so we had our snail mail forwarded to the MLC. Some of that mail needed to be shredded. When I requested a shredder, they had one promptly delivered. Another example was Duncan helping me interface a Roku device to the flat screen TV via an HDMI cable so we could watch Netflix and Amazon streaming movies.
So...if you are a couple seeking a romantic getaway in a charming, well located, and very functional cottage with terrific owners make a reservation for THIS one."

"This rental went way beyond our expectations. We have 5 kids and four adults in our group and the house fit us all perfectly. The house was fully stocked and offered everything we needed for a great spring break with nearby trails, a pool and of course the lake. Furthermore, Jonathan (the owner) was so very helpful and resourceful. We will be back and highly recommend this home to everyone!"

"OUR SANCHEZ FAMILY REUNION COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE PERFECT!! OAK CREEK LODGE PROVIDED US WITH THE MOST AMAZING "FAMILY BONDING MEMORIES" FOR A LIFETIME!!
UPON ENTERING THE LODGE, YOU SENSE A FEELING OF WELL-BEING COMBINED WITH LIVEABLE LUXURY!! THE LODGE IS HUGE WITH A MASSIVE FIREPLACE; GORGEOUS PIANO; EXCELLENT TV/RECEPTION; AND VERY COMFORTABLE FURNITURE. THE KITCHEN IS A CHEF'S DREAM.....WE ACTUALLY HAD FAMILY WANTING TO VOLUNTEER FOR BREAKFAST OUR NEXT VISIT HERE JUST SO THEY COULD EXPERIENCE FIRST-HAND COOKING ON THE LARGE GRILL!! 2 GREAT STOVES/OVENS, 2 REFRIGERATOR FREEZERS, EXTREMELY LARGE SINKS, AND A PANTRY CABINET TO HOLD EVERYTHING. WE WERE AMAZED AT ALL THE COOKING AND KITCHEN ITEMS AVAILABLE!! WE LOVED BEING ABLE TO ALL EAT TOGETHER IN THE VERY LARGE DINING AREAS. THESE ROOMS AFFORDED US THE OPPORTUNITY TO PREPARE, COOK, & ENJOY OUTSTANDING MEALS!!
WHAT AN ADVENTURE SELECTING OUR BEDROOMS AS EACH ONE IS DECORATED IN A DIFFERENT THEME. PLENTY OF LOVELY BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS TO ACCOMODATE LARGE GROUPS.
THE DECK PROVIDED A BEAUTIFUL PLACE FOR OUR OWN WINE TASTING. IT DOUBLED AS A WONDERFUL PLACE FOR THE CHILDREN TO ENJOY THEIR TEA PARTY AS WELL AS SUPERVISED "ARTWORK" MASTER PAINTINGS!!
BUT WAIT.....THERE IS MORE!! ADD A HUGE BARN WITH MORE BEDROOMS AND BATHROOMS AND LOTS OF SPACE. WE WERE ABLE TO ENJOY SOME PEACE AND QUIET WHILE THE CHERUBS WERE ENTERTAINED IN THE BARN. THEIR MOST DIFFICULT DECISION WAS TO DECIDE WHETHER THEY PLAY IN THE BARN OR ENJOY THE GORGEOUS SWIMMING POOL!! (BOTH OPTIONS WON)!!
SOME HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR REUNION INCLUDED A FUN HAY RIDE WITH "TRACTOR TOM" TO WATCH THE SUN SET; HEALING, RELAXING MASSAGES ON SITE; FISHING AT LAKE MARGARITA; JUNIOR CHEF BROWNIE BAKE; TEA PARTY; PREPARING "4 STAR MEALS"; AND A CATERED BREAKFAST BRUNCH BUFFET FAREWELL OUR LAST DAY!!
WE WANT TO THANK DOTTIE FOR HER EXTREMELY HELPFUL, PROFESSIONAL MANNER. SHE WAS AN ABSOLUTE PLEASURE WHILE SHE ASSISTED WITH ORGANIZING OUR ACTIVITIES AND OFFERING SUGGESTIONS. WE ALL HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY IF YOU WANT A "PIECE OF PARADISE"!!!"
