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.

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 stay for active tourists

  • 5 of 5

Pacific Grove Lover’s Cottage was a great place to stay and a wonderful launching point for our vacation activities. It is very near both the beach and the town, with beautiful walking trails, good restaurants, the outstanding aquarium, and easy access for a day trip to Carmel and Big Sur. It was spotlessly clean. The eat-in kitchen was large and well-equipped for our needs. We made good use of the aquarium passes which were definitely an added value. The negatives were few and minor. There isn’t a lot of light in the cottage (except for the two very welcome skylights), and the living room furniture is adequate but not great for lounging. But we came to tour the area, and not to sit at home, so we were very happy with our lodgings.

What a gem

  • 5 of 5

The house is private, clean, cute, and has everything we needed - plus charm. The kitchen is just right and we found all the necessary implements, including an electric tea kettle (yay!). The bed felt soft at first, but we slept well and had no problems with it. I deeply appreciated the comforts of home, the washer & dryer, the skylights and the little desk. The mud room and clean slippers were a hit with us, because we spent our days in the sand and surf and did not want to bring any of that into the house with us. This system is perfect for keeping sand outside where it belongs. The passes to the Aquarium were just icing on the cake. We would come here again in a heartbeat.
