Welcome to the cozy, wonderful Cottage of River Winds, a unique and wonderful all-heart redwood cottage designed by early California architect Julia Morgan! This 103-year-old cottage is the heart of our family's memories for 3 generations--and soon to be yours, too. Step back in time in this wonderfully preserved, immaculate home, truly a historic gem of old Carmel. Open beams, all-heart redwood walls, many original features, a stone fireplace, large sunny patio, antique furniture and original oil paintings of the area. We are happy to share this family treasure with you. Our cottage stands amid a large garden on Carmel Point, just two blocks from Carmel Beach and three from Carmel River Beach. It is close to everything--just one mile to Carmel Village, about 1/2 mile to the Carmel Mission, and easy access to Hwy 1. We have 3 bedrooms: 2 with queen beds that share a full bath (tub/shower) down a small hallway. The third bedroom is quite small and has 1 full bed with private access to a tiny full bathroom (with shower) in the main part of the house. Fully supplied kitchen; all linens provided; cable TV, DVD player, iPod player, secure wireless internet, and everything you need for a comfortable stay. We mostly rent by week or month; shorter stays in wintertime. If the simple peacefulness of bygone times speaks to your heart, you will fall in love with the Cottage of River Winds.
My husband and I along with our 3yo son had a wonderful Spring Break week in Carmel staying at River Winds. What a lovely home in a fantastic location! I grew up on Cape Cod and this place brought back fond memories of my grandmother's house on the beach. All the amenities you need to be away with a toddler (wife, laundry, 2 bathrooms and a tub, linen closet with enough towels) and a well-stocked kitchen with everything necessary to prepare meals (although you may want to bring spices besides salt & pepper). The location can't be beat - close enough for a healthy stroll into town (for little ones definitely use the stroller) and the beaches, beaches, beaches! We spent equal time walking to the very nearby beaches or exploring further points like Point Lobos, Big Sur and the state parks, Monterey Aquarium etc. The highlight for my son was definitely Carmel River State Beach, exploring the shallow waters, hunting for bugs and frogs in the reeds and running in the sheltered dunes. It's all stunning and relaxing and just exactly where you want to be to spend your week de-stressing and chilling out. One night it poured rain and us Angelenos LOVED hearing the rain on the roof and the crash of the waves in the distance. Fantastic stay and so well-preserved. I love that this family is trusting enough to share this architecturally and historically significant cottage with the rest of us. We will definitely be back!
