Carmel Cottage Inn Carmel California
The Carmel Cottage Inn is really five, very charming and quaint cottages. Carmel Cottage Inn is nestled in a residential neighborhood just one block from the ocean. The cottages have equally charming names: Sky Way, Moon Gate, Home Port, Tradewinds,
and Log Haven. Log Haven is pictured here.
Each of the cottages has been lovingly restored and updated while keeping the old style feel reminiscent of the days of artists and authors in Carmel by-the-Sea. Walk to Carmel beach, shops, or restaurants, then come back to your beach cottage to relax. Each cottage includes either a full kitchen or kitchenette. The cottages were featured on the Carmel Inn’s Tour a couple of years ago.
Carmel Cottage Inn Originally Owned by La Playa in Carmel by-the-Sea
Originally owned by La Playa and known as the Cottages by the Sea, these five charming cottages were purchased by the Assemi family in 2011. The Assemi’s provided loving renovation to the cottages and renamed them the Carmel Cottage Inn. They are a favorite of return visitors who love the location, which is just a few blocks from Carmel beach.
