Cottage in Carmel

Jill C. from Santa Monica, ca recommends this property
Stayed 4 days in Jul, 2014
We had a very relaxing stay at the Atherton cottage in Carmel. The cottage was well appointed. We had everything we needed . It was very clean and comfortable . We especially enjoyed our time out on the deck and breakfast on the patio. It was within walking distance of trails to walk our dog. Good location near all, yet away from the busy streets of Carmel proper. I highly recommend this cottage.

Perfect Get-Away

A Guest from Altadena, CA recommends this property

This cottage was just perfect to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was charming, clean, and in a great location. We could walk to the beach and the Mission. We will definitely stay here again when we return to Carmel.

We were in Carmel for our son's lovely wedding held at the Mission. My husband, my 6yo son, and myself stayed at The Atherton for 7 days. It was absolutely the perfect place to stay. Plenty of room, very clean and very well equipped. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor space that allowed our 6yo to play outside safely. My husband was overwhelmed by the beautiful plants and flowers indiginous to CA. The area was very quiet and such a wonderful weather change from the heat in VA. We found the town of Carmel lovely and quaint. We only wished we had more time to explore the shopping and play on the beach. The Atherton was the perfect place for us to retreat to after all the wedding events. We had the opportunity to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and after wedding and travel expenses, were quite grateful for the two members passes that were provided by the property management. I must say that the Mission was fabulous and did an awesome job for the wedding and we loved hearing the bells everyday. Bernardus Winery hosted our rehearsal and reception dinners and also did an awesome job. Delicious food, competent and professional wait staff, and beautiful scenery. We would definitely stay at The Atherton again and recommend to others.

Carmel with a baby

A Guest from Knoxville, TN recommends this property
Stayed 7 days in May, 2014
Cozy 1 bedroom was perfect for our trip with baby in tow. They had a pack n play for us, and it was great to have a separate living room from the bedroom while the baby slept. Laundry was a must for us as well. There are also beach seats and umbrella available for use which was great to use. Manager Kathy was very helpful as well.

Had a wonderful time at Atherton Cottage! If I visit Monterey in the future, this is the only place I want to stay. The location was perfect and only minutes away from just about everything. Thank you to everyone involved in making this trip a memorable one!
