Colette's Cottage is a clean, modern cabin surrounded by giant, coastal redwood trees. A tranquil and serene park-like setting with all modern amenities included: Gas fireplace, Plush Queen size bed, high speed wifi and a private deck overlooking a seasonal creek. Lovingly remodeled in 2017 as a romantic retreat among the redwoods.
“Our stay was seriously BEYOND. Without getting too far into my personal circumstances, I am a single-dad with two young boys + small biz owner who quite literally NEVER gets to go on vacation anywhere, let alone to to a paradise like this. Colette and Al's space is truly immaculate, and has all of the right touches to make even a brief stay like ours feel special. My travel companion and I liked it so much we wanted to move in :) Comfortable bed with soft, luxurious linens and heavy blankets? Check! Perfectly appointed shower with bench and excellent water pressure? Check! Gorgeous stone countertops and kitchen sink? Check! A perfect combination of seclusion and connectivity? Check! Coffee and snacks on deck upon arrival? Check! Gracious hosts who communicate thoroughly but are otherwise almost invisible? Check! A wall of windows revealing towering redwoods and a creek? Check! And the list goes on . . . The location proved just perfect for a variety of outdoor day-trips to whale watch, hike, swim, and eat all up and down the coast. So grateful to Colette and Al for the time and care spent making this space and the land around it everything it is.”
The Cabin's secluded quiet location is conveniently located off Hwy 1 for easy access to the Coast, but walking distance to great local restaurants, galleries, bakeries, shopping centers, bank, post office and bus stop. A short drive to down town Carmel, Point Lobos, and Pebble Beach /Golfing. A detached Cabin, with private entrance and parking in the back of the property. There is a mini fridge, microwave, toaster, coffee and tea pot.
“The cabin is adorable. Perfect size for 2-3 people. It’s very peaceful, quiet and private yet within walking distance to some restaurants, shopping and a short Uber ride downtown Carmel. The place was clean and spacious with all the amenities. Max provided a lot of great local tips for exploring the area. It’s a little tricky to find as it is set behind the main house on a private road but Max provided great instructions and pictures to make it easy to find. I would definitely stay again if in the area and highly recommend!”
Our place is approximately half-way between Carmel and Big Sur villages. You’ll love our location because of the intimate contact with mother nature. It is good for couples, solo adventurers, families (with kids), and furry friends (yes, we are pet friendly). Our $25 per person, per night for more than two persons applies only to adults age 15 or older, not to family children under age 15
“If you're looking to capture Jack Kerouac's "Big Sur" look no further than this charming gem. We fell in love with the idea of spending time getting away from it all. We were not disappointed. Outdoor bathtub? Dreamy. Gas woodstove? Nice and warm. Eclectic blend of Bohemian decor? You betcha. Doug is very responsive and sublime. He magically appeared right when we needed him. A few words of caution. If you are queasy about driving down a steep gravel road toward your final destination, this cabin is not for you. If you drive a sports car with a low suspension, this cabin is not for you. However, if you are a confident driver willing to risk a bit of discomfort, then you'll find your Shangri-La here deep in the redwoods, overlooking a creek. Thanks Doug, for hosting us!!!”
