About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the cozy, wonderful Cottage of River Winds, a unique and wonderful all-heart redwood cottage designed by early California architect Julia Morgan! This 103-year-old cottage is the heart of our family's memories for 3 generations--and soon to be yours, too. Step back in time in this wonderfully preserved, immaculate home, truly a historic gem of old Carmel. Open beams, all-heart redwood walls, many original features, a stone fireplace, large sunny patio, antique furniture and original oil paintings of the area.

We are happy to share this family treasure with you. Our cottage stands amid a large garden on Carmel Point, just two blocks from Carmel Beach and three from Carmel River Beach. It is close to everything--just one mile to Carmel Village, about 1/2 mile to the Carmel Mission, and easy access to Hwy 1.

We have 3 bedrooms: 2 with queen beds that share a full bath (tub/shower) down a small hallway. The third bedroom is quite small and has 1 full bed with private access to a tiny full bathroom (with shower) in the main part of the house.

Fully supplied kitchen; all linens provided; cable TV, DVD player, iPod player, secure wireless internet, and everything you need for a comfortable stay.

We mostly rent by week or month; shorter stays in wintertime. If the simple peacefulness of bygone times speaks to your heart, you will fall in love with the Cottage of River Winds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1919

About the owner: Our great-aunt Etta (in the blue dress) settled here at the Cottage with her friend, Kelly, after World War I. They ran the Cottage of River Winds as a Bed & Breakfast for many years, through many days of hard work and grace. The Cottage has been in our family for 3 generations. Our parents loved and cared for this beautiful property until their deaths a few years ago, when my brothers and I took over. We try to take care of it in the way that Etta would do, providing peaceful simplicity in an atmosphere of beauty at 'the greatest meeting of land and sea.'

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Point, Carmel-by-the-Sea, CA, USA:
The Cottage of River Winds is our family's treasure. We were blessed to enjoy many of our best family memories here while growing up, and we enjoy sharing this remarkable, unique place with others who seek a simple, peaceful experience like this.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Cottage of River Winds lets you step back in time to a simpler day when the beauty of a garden, the whisper of rainfall on the roof, the peacefulness of a cup of tea in the morning sun, enrich your soul and feed your heart.
