Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Lou and Kristin,

Whew! Now that we aren’t so consumed with planning and guests etc. can take a moment to thank you properly for your hospitality. Your home was just perfect for our wedding – from accommodations for us and our helper elves (friends) , to the natural and architectural environment for the wedding and reception. Your home provided the very special location while still being comfortable for everyone. The day, the place, the whole package was far more than we could have ever asked for! We’ve actually received many votes from our guests for “The Best Wedding Ever”. We’re basking in the afterglow. A lifetime of memories to enjoy.

And now, since you asked for pictures…I’m sending you a link to a gallery our photographer friends made. You may want to scroll across the bottom to get the pictures that interest you most. If there are pictures you are interested in using for Red Wolf rental promotion materials, let us know and we’ll get the files to you.

Here’s the gallery:

Kindest Regards,

Sarah and Grailing

Spectacular Views

What a great spot to spend Thanksgiving! So close to Carmel yet away from the crowd. It was so peaceful and relaxing. A truly wonderful getaway! We really didn't want to leave the porch and the beautiful views.

The 2 mile drive "UP" the road made it well worth the majestic view and amazing home!

  • 5 of 5

The eight of us are so appreciative and grateful for the opportunity to stay in this incredible home. Pamela was such an immense resource in providing local restaurants and recreation. She was available 24/7 and contributed to the fond memories we shared on this journey. Thank you Lou for opening up your home on "HomeAway". The zen-like location and calming surroundings added a wonderful element of our stay. Our experience with the home, Pamela, and the town was a "10". We hope to return!!!! Namaste!!!!

Great Views - Great Architecture

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with a nice blend of rustic modern architecture. Great views in a remote and peacefull location. While the house is only 20 minutes to Carmel, you do have a very windy and narrow road to reach the house. Overall the house is well equipped with an open floor-plan, two very outdoor decks and comfortable bedrooms.

Architecturally stunning, breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

The Estate was absolutely beautiful, no detail was left unattended. The house was well decorated, beds were incredibly comfortable, and kitchen was great - we cancelled dinner reservations in Carmel just to indulge at the house even longer. Pam was lovely and helpful in showing us around the property. The views were fantastic we so loved spending time out on the patio. My family could not have been happier with the accommodations, we very much look forward to our next trip to this home!

Tranquility above the Clouds

  • 5 of 5

I believe that tranquility, happiness and contentment come form within, but if you are at all inclined toward achieving these, this is the perfect setting. We fell in love with the breathtaking views of Carmel & the Pacific Ocean, living above the fog, but still cool enough to be comfortable, and the peaceful quiet setting, while still just a quick drive to Carmel-By-The-Sea, Big Sur & Monterey. The home itself is the essence of luxury, with plenty of space, views from every room, and beautiful furnishings throughout. What made the experience all the better was the warm welcome we received from Pamela as well as Lou & his amazing family. We haven't even left the airport, and we are already talking about our next trip back.

Enjoy the unique microclimate is 10 – 15 degrees warmer than Carmel and high above the fog. Sunrises and Sunsets are 360 degrees and Carmel Village lights up the night below as the fog treads it’s way through the Valley. Thousands of acres of California State Parks open space surround this property. (note green park land on Google Map) Large open space allows for little ambient light creating an abundance of stars and planet viewing.

Other Activities: kayaking, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, health/beauty spa, shopping, boating
