Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Anne is a very gracious host. She came across as a very warm person, who was very open to helping my friends and me. Her kitchen was stacked with snacks and cereals, and she baked us banana muffins!

    We stayed only for two hectic nights, but found our stay very comfortable. I highly recommend Anne's cottage to anyone visiting Carmel valley/ surrounding area.

  • What a fantastic place! We were four guys, and we were able to fit very comfortably and get a bed each in the huge bedroom that Anne set up for us. She also welcomed us with a giant homemade lasagna (made with vegetables from her garden!).

    Anne was extremely friendly, and we had a great conversation about all sorts of things.

    Thank you, Anne!

  • We only had one night to spend at Anne's place, but I wish we could have stayed longer. Anne's place is incredible - spacious, but cozy and very charming. Anne is an amazing hostess – very friendly and accommodating, she even baked us muffins and made sure the fireplace was lit up, so the kids wouldn't be cold. She also had a ton of tips and what's there to see around Carmel. Highly recommended!

    October 2012
  • Great house, great rooms and great hostess. This is as advertised - a retreat near the Carmel river with clean, spacious rooms and really nice bathrooms. A friend and I needed 2 beds to spend the night before heading out on a bike ride to Hearst Castle and Anne's retreat was perfect. Complete serenity in the short time we were there.

    September 2012
  • Our stay at Anne's place was short but sweet. Anne has a beautiful home and is a gracious host. We enjoyed her yummy muffins and meeting Chico!

    August 2012

.There are a total of two suites and two private baths available..For those of you that are allergic to dogs my service dogs live on the premise. I do not let the dogs in the rooms where the guest sleep. Please do not bring your pets. My dogs are herding dogs and will chase your pet off the property if they are small . Just no a good idea for all of us. I enjoy gardening , hiking and horse back riding the unexplored areas of the Monterey Peninsula and making special baked goods for the guests here at "The Carmel River Retreat". Best to all!
