This beautiful, casual, historic house, set in a residential neighborhood, is the oldest and best example of the Craftsman style of architecture found in the village of Seaside on the Monterey Peninsula. Built in 1910 by the Phelps family and located on a half-acre property, surrounded by organic gardens with private, gated parking, this property has views of Monterey Bay. Seaside is considered to be the sunniest place on the Bay.

My hosts were extremely welcoming. The entire house is beautifully adorned Amd you feel 'at home' from the moment you walk in. My room was compact yet perfect for one. The breakfast is heavenly-- if lucky you get to sit down and share it with the family and/or other guests. Thank you Annemarie & Jesse, it was a lovely stay :)
Lovely home, lovely gardens, centrally located and well taken care of. The room was quite comfortable, and breakfast was delicious with good variety. I appreciated the secure parking and the chocolate chip cookies! I would definitely stay again when I return to Monterey.
The house is very nice with lots if character and wonderful views. They have a great breakfast and think of all your needs. Very nice folks.
The Bed and breakfast was a lovely stay, i would recommend it to anyone and will. The room was small but big enough, the breakfast was grand, and so were the hosts. Thank you very much! Julia
Beautiful gardens and house. Very comfortable room.
I was welcomed upon entering immediately and then shown my eoom. After a full day of hiking and driving up the coast, I wasn't the most sociable and went to bed early/left early the next day. They seemed like they'd be happy to help if needed, but I also appreciated being given the peace and quiet and warm environment.
I would be happy to stay again.
Adorably little room, perfect for my needs. I just wanted a quick stop before going on to Big Sur and this room was exactly what I wanted. Check in was easy, secure parking and I even got to visit with the chickens. Highly recommended.
