About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 5

Charming 1920's Cottage steps away from California Institute of Technology and South Lake shopping district. This 1100 square feet single family home with plenty of windows and natural light has a great view of the San Gabriel Mountain range, and just a few blocks from San Marino's mansions.

It includes a full working kitchen (gas stove) a large breakfast room with washer/dryer.

Two Bedrooms each have queen sizes beds and a comfortable pull out sofa is in the living room. The dining room can seat six people beautifully.

Wireless Internet, TV with DVD player. Clean linens and towels, Iron and ironing board. Hardwood floor, original artwork makes this home a fresh experience, giving a southern California feel.

Central Air Conditioning and Heat.

Outside sitting area.

Do not be surprise to find local organic eggs in your welcome basket and with a little luck a local tour in our Traction Avant almost as old as the cottage....

The house is located a block from Cal Tech, two blocks from South Lake shopping District. Less than a mile from the Historic Langham Hotel founded by the Huntingtons. A little over a mile from the Huntington Library in San Marino which is a lovely walk. In the opposite direction about the same distance sits the The Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art. A mile further is the Famed Norton Simon Museum with Old town Pasadena's exciting venues of bars and wonderful restaurants.

The historic Santa Anita Race track is but a 10 minute drive and we are 5 blocks from the Rose Parade route on Colorado and 3 miles from the Rose bowl.

If you like hiking the trails at the top of Lake Avenue will be a delight with a spectacular view of Southern California including Catalina Island.

Public transportation is available close by with the Metro Gold Line to downtown Los Angeles and beyond.

Several grocery stores (Traders Joe's/ Fresh& Easy) are within walking distance as well as a Peet's coffee and a Starbucks. Whole Food is less than 2 miles away.

Movie theaters are close by.

About Bruno

Parisian transplant, I restore old french car in my spare time, while my wife tends to the chickens. We have three Citroens Traction Avant ranging from pre-war with a 1938 11BL to a limousine from 1954 and a 15/6 from 1952, a Renault Dauphine from 1959 and even a Simca CG from 1967.

We will be happy to take you on a tour of Pasadena during your visit, if time permits and one is running....

I have lived in Kenya, Germany, England, Switzerland and France growing up. I used to managed Hotels, I will make sure your stay is as pleasant as can be with great amenities and fresh eggs !!

Bon Voyage et bonne visite a Pasadena.

Cozy and endearing cottage. Didn't take long at all to feel comfortable and at home.

  • 5 of 5

Charming and adorable! Bright sunlight, spacious and very clean! Bruno and Cynthia are wonderful hosts, they've thought of everything from some children's toys, plenty of towels to an amptly furnished kitchen and outdoor table and chairs. Bed #2 is perfection. Bed #1 I hear is pretty great too. The washer and dryer are such a wonderful convenience. This is an excellent property and the owners take great pride in making guests feel welcome. I highly recommend 👍𣐽𣑍

Lovely, eclectic cottage on quiet street with welcoming touches like fresh eggs and flowers, coffee, bagels, milk. Fun stay, great hosts. Highly recommend.

Was there alone and felt safe. Clean and comfortable, stocked kitchen, laundry.

Great vacation home

  • 4 of 5

This property is great for families big or small.. The owners are very flexible and accommodating. The place was clean and well furnished. We got fresh eggs and freshly baked cookies on our arrival. It was a great experience and I wiuld definitely recommend this to others. It is also relatively close to the Pasadena shops.

B Tillman,

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is perfectly welcoming, ---delightfully appointed with designer art work--pleasing and fresh in every way! The A.C. was used twice, but otherwise was comfortable enough with windows open to a safe, secure and quiet neighborhood. Gathering morning eggs from the 'sisters' was a highlight as well as the convenient two block walk to choice dining on Lake Ave.

old charm of pasadena

  • 5 of 5

spent a few days with the family in pasadena in this quaint and functional home. it brings you back to the days when pasadena was probably a smaller and quieter town. the rooms were well furnished, plenty of space, and the kitchen has everything you need. there is a washer and dryer for the long term stays. a good location that is walkable to cal-tech, grocery stores, bagels, peets coffee, and the famous pie n burger. the host is very nice, and had the AC running for us before we arrived on a 90 degree so cal day. a very comfortable place on a quiet street.

Loved Staying in the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

For our purposes, the cottage is a 5 star. It is on a quiet street just driving minutes from Trader Joes, Whole Foods, restaurants and serious shopping. Bruno and Cynthia, the owners/managers are delightful to rent from. They were helpful and accommodated all of our reasonable requests. They live on the adjoining property behind the cottage. Three of us stayed here to prepare for our daughter's wedding which was at the Arboretum. We organized three events while there. Needless to say, this was somewhat stressful, but the cottage was so well stocked with essentials, almost everything we needed was available. In addition, when stressed out we were able to visit Bruno's free range chickens in our yard and feel the tension disappear.

The cottage is clean and one senses that the owners care about the comfort of their renters. It is an early 20th century home, so if you are looking for modern spacious luxury, it may disappoint, However if country charm, gracious hosts and outdoor yard count, this could be for you.
