Our place is a newly remodeled 1930s country cottage, formerly the staff quarters of neighboring Los Laureles Lodge - the birthplace of Monterey Jack Cheese! We’re conveniently located just 10 miles from Carmel in sunny Carmel Valley with easy access to tasting rooms, Laguna Seca, popular wedding venues and hiking in Garland Ranch. It’s a great location to explore all the Monterey Peninsula has to offer- from Pebble Beach to Big Sur and beyond.

The space
The cottage is a 2BR 2BA guesthouse with flair. It's furnished with family heirlooms, vintage rugs and funky artwork we've collected over the years. There's something handmade or hand-finished by Jan in every room.

The kitchen is updated with granite countertops, a gas range and oven, all the standard appliances and then some (e.g., juicer, food processor, panini press), apart from a dishwasher. There's cookware and bakeware - just about everything you could need, even a fondue set if you’re feeling fancy. And if something’s missing, let us know and you can borrow ours if we have it.

There's oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, some basic spices and pantry essentials for your use. We also provide fresh ground coffee, an assortment of teas, some dairy (cream or milk) and oats (for oatmeal) with toppings (dried fruit and nuts).

There are two newly remodeled bathrooms, both with showers and tubs. They’re stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash and plenty of fluffy towels. One bed has a down duvet and pillows, the other (the one in the library) is down-alternative for those with sensitivities.

The driveway is shared, but there is a reserved parking spot and a private entrance. The yard is fully fenced and, at the moment, very green.

Where you’ll be

Carmel Valley, California, United States

We're just 1 mile from charming Carmel Valley Village. It has more than a dozen tasting rooms (with bocce courts!), a biergarten (or two!), a great artisan market, a locally-owned coffee shop, some gourmet restaurants, a little library and even a motorcycle museum. In the other direction there's hiking, golf, some great spas (Refuge and Barnardus Lodge) and then the beach. Monterey - including Fisherman's Wharf and the Aquarium - is just a 20/25 min jaunt away.
