About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2)

Located just a few minutes walking time to Carmel's best shops, restaurants, and galleries, Snow White Cottage is a special place.

The 835 sq. ft. cottage sits back, and high above the street on a large oak enchanted corner lot offering privacy. It is a historical Comstock, which has been completely restored and updated. There are walnut wood floors, Venetian light fixtures, plaster walls, and comfortable sitting areas, everything you would expect in a fine, luxury rental. The kitchen has all the finest in appliances, and a dutch door leading out to the rear patio where a gas BBQ is ready for use on those warm summer evenings. The front bedroom has a beautiful view of the oaks and gardens, which makes you feel like you're sleeping in a tree house. The bathroom has a jet tub, shower, and two copper bowl sinks. The rear bedroom has a wonderful original door which opens to a serene patio, while on the other side has a dutch door which opens to the rear patio. The bathroom has a steam shower, with one copper bowl sink. The living area is wonderful with the large floor to ceiling original iron window overlooking the trees. There is a very real looking remote controlled gas fireplace, and a dutch door opening out to the front patio and gardens.

With the sounds of the ocean at night, and the privacy and serenity, Snow White Cottage is truly a magical place.

Truly Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

If you're familiar with Carmel's history and the Tuck Box, staying at this Snow White Cottage was like living in a fairy tale. Simply perfect. Enter into a well-appointed living room with a wonderful fireplace and find yourself instantly feeling cozy and content to just spend some at home. The cottage has been completely updated, yet it holds still all the old charm of Carmel-By-The-Sea. The interior design, furniture, kitchen, bathrooms (including steam shower), and bedding were all wonderful. The location is perfect within just a few blocks and an easy walk to shops, restaurants, and wine tasting throughout Carmel. I will definitely return to Snow White Cottage...a month would be perfect!

Very Satisfied Repeat Guests

  • 5 of 5

Having spent our 4th consecutive year at Snow White Cottage speaks volumes about our love for this outstanding vacation home. Each year the experience exceeds our high expectations. My previous years' reviews spotlight what we love about Snow White Cottage, and I can only add that often-times during the year, I daydream about our wonderful times at the cottage. I would be remiss not to mention what a joy it has been to deal with the owner Mary these past 4 years. Bottom-line: if you're looking to spend time in one of America's most beautiful villages, then choose Snow White Cottage. You'll be glad you did.

Dreams Really Do Come True!

  • 5 of 5

After leaving Palm Desert, with temperatures in the triple digits, arriving at the Snow White cottage

was paradise. Everything was in working order, extremely clean and tastefully decorated. We

immediately felt "at home" and enjoyed every moment of our month long stay. Mary could not

have been nicer or easier to work with. My husband and I both give Mary and Snow White Five Stars

for excellence!

In summary, we have stayed at Snow White cottage for three consecutive years, and simply will not consider any other cottage for our annual visits. Mary, thank you for your outstanding hospitality and attention to every detail that makes staying at Snow White such a delight. We're already missing Carmel and our "home away from home." Only the wonderful memories make waiting for next year's visit bearable.

It is the "fairest of them all" !

  • 5 of 5

We enthusiastically "mirror" the previous review! Snow White Cottage is indeed more charming than the pictures, very convenient and top quality. Staying in this beautiful and quiet neighborhood gave us a taste of what living in Carmel-by-the Sea would be like .......and we could not have been happier. Mary was a joy to work with and we know where we will stay when we return!

Charmed by Snow White

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent an enchanted week at Snow White and would highly recommend to Carmel-by-the-Sea visitors who are looking for maximum charm, comfort and luxurious accommodations within a short walk to the village. As frequent visitors to the area, we knew we had made the right choice when we pulled into the stone driveway surrounded by lovely flowers and shady trees. The pictures do not do justice to the real beauty of the cottage and the interior spaces are warm and inviting. We were very appreciative of the impeccably clean and well-maintained cottage. It has the perfect combination of historic charm and modern baths and kitchen. Mary, the owner, was a delight to work with from start to finish, and we are grateful to her for her helping make our vacation a worry-free escape. Snow White Cottage immediately felt like home and following our daily walks to the beach and village, we looked forward to returning to the cottage, reading in the garden in the afternoons, and warming by the fireplace in the evenings with a great bottle of wine. We look forward to many future visits.
