"We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary on this delightful property in beautiful Carmel Valley. The owner, Rose, greeted us at the gate with fresh, delicious homemade cookies. A welcome treat after enjoying the country drive up to their property. It's a rather long drive, but beautiful. Rose encouraged us to arrive before dark. We recommend the same.
We instantly felt at home in the Bunkhouse, which is decorated warmly, and had absolutely everything we needed for our stay. Personal touches included fresh flowers, a couple of water bottles, and everything we needed to BBQ, use a single burner on the side of the BBQ, outdoor sink on the deck. Oh, did I mention the deck is completely private with a creek running behind it? Heavenly peaceful!
Inside is a Kurig coffee pot, microwave, a small refrigerator and a toaster oven. Cooking and doing dishes a breeze. It felt a little like camping, but with all the luxuries of comfort and shelter. The bedroom is awesome, the bed is extremely comfortable, and in the living space a wonderful electric fireplace unit that kept us plenty warm in the evenings. A little wine and cheese and crackers and we were set to enjoy our anniversary.
You will want to bring your food up with you, make a stop along the way, as it's about 20-25 minutes to the market in Carmel Valley.
The bunkhouse is set up with a portable DVDS player and movies, books, and music CDs. A few games, cards, and fabulous weather!
We found great trails to walk to the local Dam and Carmel River. There is also a park nearby if you have children. Rose and Jim have two dogs, chickens and ducks, a cat, duck pond, all accessible for us to enjoy. But never a bother!
All in all, we had a great time, and would love to return. Thank you Rose and Jeff for your wonderful hospitality. Five stars from us! 👍😄"
