Anne is *super* awesome! Her place is lovely, and she really took care of us. We were out hiking for two full days in Big Sur, and when we were running a bit late on the second day, Anne called us and offered to dress and put our turkey in the oven! (It came out wonderfully!) Anne is a really great host – very much recommended!
Anne was a great host, and extremely helpful for giving us tips about activities in the area. The house was very clean, and the beds were very comfortable. Highly recommended!
Anne was a great host with great suggestions on things to do in the local area. Great place to stay, thanks a lot again!
We had an amazing 2 day mini-vacation in Carmel/Big-Sur. Anne was a wonderful hostess for our families (4 adults, 2 children under 3 yrs old)! It was our first visit to the area and she suggested a great itinerary for our limited time. She also had fun beach toys ready for the boys! The home is really perfect for multiple families as there are two large bedrooms in very separate areas of the home, but a great large kitchen and living room to gather in.
I strongly, strongly recommend staying with Anne if you're interested in exploring the Carmel area. My four siblings and I celebrated my Mom's 60th birthday weekend here and could not have had a better time. Anne is a great host and a total sweetheart -- she even baked cupcakes (with candle!) as a birthday surprise. Her house is spacious, very clean, and beautifully situated along the Carmel River. We especially enjoyed lounging on the porch and looking out over her lush garden and fruit trees. It's a short walk or very short (2-3 minute) drive into town, where there are lots of wineries and delicious local restaurants. Anne was also able to recommend a terrific half-day hike -- the trailhead is right down the street and the loop took us up to the ridge overlooking the valley, where the views were beautiful. Definitely give this place a try.
Anne was really a great host. The place was exactly as she described it. Very clean and warm and huge. I would definitely stay here again. She also gave us a lot of privacy!
Anne couldn't have been a nicer host. She welcomed us with apple cake and tea upon arrival. She also gave us a tour of her lovely garden which includes a stream at the back of the property. Her pointers for things to see in Big Sur were excellent and really made of an excellent trip. The house was clean, tidy and welcoming and I'd highly recommend it.
Anne welcomed us into her beautiful home for two nights. I was celebrating my birthday and Anne made a delicious cake for me and left a nice card and bottle of wine for me! How sweet! The River Retreat is everything that was advertised - spacious, clean, and absolutely gorgeous - Anne's a gardner and has created an oasis in the backyard to enjoy. The area is surrounded with wineries and is only a short drive to downtown Carmel and the beach. It was a great experience I'd recommend to anyone! Thanks Anne!
We loved Anne! She told us about places in the area we never could have discovered otherwise, staying in a hotel. Her house is on a beautiful street close to the village where we enjoyed restaurants, etc, and not a long drive out to the coast, either. The house is warm and comfortable and very quiet. A real retreat!
We had a great time in this gorgeous place by the river. The rooms were clean and beautiful.
Anne was so kind and patient, answered all our questions and gave us awesome tips that made our trip perfect!
