About the property

Romantic 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath Cottage minutes from Spectacular Coast and Beaches

We are licensed with the City of Pacific Grove's TUL program

License # 0177.

Come and stay in our bright and adorable historic Redwood cottage. Renovated through out complete with wooden floors and a full kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Lots of light from 2 skylights, white walls, and lace curtains make for a romantic country cottage feel. Escape the city and sit out on the wooden deck and enjoy the relaxed vibe of Pacific Grove, Butterfly Town, U.S.A. Enjoy the use of 2 guest membership passes to the world famous Monterey Bay Aquarium!

This beautifully remodeled cottage was built in 1910 with a plaque inscribed to Lucy Hart 1894. An energy efficient washer and dryer in the covered breezeway are available for use by Guests.

Located 6 blocks from Lighthouse Avenue and downtown Pacific Grove, .6 miles from 17 Mile Drive, 1.3 miles from Asilomar Beach and Conference Grounds, .8 miles from Lover’s Point, and 1.6 miles from The Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Enjoy all of the comforts of home including quality bed and bath linens and everything you need to cook a homemade meal.

Pacific Grove is known as the 'last hometown' for its friendly assortment of small shops, specialty boutiques, and excellent restaurants. Take the walking trail through the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary or head to the walking path along the shoreline (that has a pictorial history of the town) to Cannery row, home of the Monterey Bay Aquarium. A golfer's paradise awaits with numerous courses to choose from including the famous Pebble Beach. A short drive along the famed 17-mile drive will take you to the town of Carmel with its many art galleries and superb restaurants or to the historic Carmel Mission. And, of course, there is the breathtaking scenic beauty of the region, including the many beaches, Point Lobos, and the coastal drive on Highway 1 down to Big Sur, still a haven for artists, bohemians and free thinkers from all walks of life.

Great little place. It's small, but it has everything you need, and was quite comfortable. Rory was super-helpful and responsive.

Quaint Cottage in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for 6 nights in this quaint little cottage. In a very quiet neighbourhood and ideal location for exploring Pacific Grove/Monterey and surrounding area. Kitchen was well equipped, even having a kettle as well as a coffee maker, which for us British guests is a must! Great to have washer/dryer available, though bearing it mind it only takes eco tablets, maybe more could be provided. Excellent communication when booking and prior to arrival, excellent directions as well, and the aquarium passes are a bonus. The only negatives were the fact that you are told to remove shoes in the mud room, and there are slippers provided, however I feel that if this is the case disposable slippers would be better, as I didn't want to wear slippers somebody else had worn, so ended up either bare foot or wearing socks. Also the sofa is the most uncomfortable one I've ever come across, not ideal for relaxing in after a full days sightseeing/exploring. The bed is also extremely soft, especially when you first sit on it, however after the initial shock, it was actually very comfortable to sleep in.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on your recent stay in my home. All guests are sent our "house rules" about removing foot ware at the time of booking, so please pack your own slippers or feel free to use those provided as a courtesy. One of the most commonly used words to describe my home by guests is "cozy." I personally find the couches in my home comfy cozy for relaxing and enjoying a movie. They fold down into a lounge shape to recline, or I can use the extra cushions to prop my back and sit upright. We offer a lovely, charming place to stay at a very reasonable rate even at peak seasons and event weekends. Come and stay with us sometime! .

Very charming cottage/location

  • 5 of 5

Very charming and updated, nicely decorated. Neighborhood was also quiet, charming and an easy walk to restaurants - we even walked to Fifi's. Our host was very kind, especially when we accidentally left the season passes in Carmel . . . but we got them back just in time. We would love to return and spend more time in PG.
