About the Owner

My family and I have lived in the area since 2008. Purchasing, remodeling and restoring Log Haven Cottage was a labor of love which took most of 2012 to complete and something we strive to maintain. We wanted it to look the way, we felt, it always should have.

  • of 5
This rental was over and beyond what I was expecting! The pictures are not enough to show how beautiful this home really is. They must hire an expensive house cleaner because everything was immaculately clean. There was plenty of space for all my guest, plenty of additional toiletries & towels, and even included a welcome basket with snacks and Starbucks gift card. Plus you could walk to the beach with no shoes because it's only a block away. This place was definitely worth every penny spent. Plus the weather was perfect!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a nice time! The welcome gift bag is usual, but you must have been celebrating a birthday if we left you a Starbucks Card! Thank you for noticing how clean we keep it, our cleaning crew loves the compliments!!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5
My family of 5 had a wonderful stay at your property.
There was plenty of space for all of us. We enjoyed the courtyard in the warm afternoons, the brief walk to the beach, and the overall cleanliness of the cottage.
The Retro kitchen is truly fantastic and well equipped for cooking meals.
We look forward to returning.

Log Cabin and Cottage all in one.

Cottage and grounds well maintained. Great location. Could hear the ocean because close to beach and just a short walk to downtown Carmel. There were seven of us (three generations) and we all enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

Far exceded expectations!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and 6 friends were able to enjoy a little getaway and were blown away with this Carmel jewel. The pictures do not do it justice. The charm and details in this lovely home are endless! We loved sitting around the large dining room table chatting, eating and playing games. The family room is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the cozy fireplace. The home was even decorated for Christmas....another wonderful surprise! Cheryl was great to work with and the special touches she includes when you arrive are above and beyond what is expected. Also, the location...superb! We're already planning to return next year!

The Perfect Carmel Retreat

  • 5 of 5
Log Haven is every bit as wonderful as it looks in the pictures. Six friends and I stayed for a weekend in early October and absolutely loved it! The experience couldn't have been better: the house is beautifully maintained and was perfectly prepared for our arrival with plenty of extra linens, soap and shampoo, quality pots, pans, and dishes in the kitchen, and even a welcome gift basket. Cheryl was great, both to talk to over the phone when booking the rental, and when she stopped by shortly after check-in to say hello and make sure that we had everything we needed. The location is perfect as well; a block from the beach and two short blocks from Ocean Avenue. Highly, highly recommended; I'd stay again in an instant!

Location

From the Owner

For us, it was love at first sight. Log Haven and all 4 of our other listings (Tradewinds 938557, Home Port 938549, Moon Gate 938556 and Sky Way 938553) reside on one property, collectively called the Carmel Cottage Inn. The cottages are full time vacation rentals with hotel status, which allows us to rent by the night. The gardens and patios are designed to give each cottage a feeling of privacy. The proximity of our cottages, patios and gardens to each other, as well as to the beach and downtown Carmel, make them equally ideal for a single cottage rental or for larger groups, family reunions, etc. To keep the houses fresh for longer visits, we arrange for periodic light housekeeping for stays of 3 nights or longer.

Amenities

From the Owner

Built prior to 1910, Log Haven Cottage has an elegantly quirky charm. Almost every door in the house is different, and the staircase leading upstairs was built at a time when staircases were quite narrow. It's loaded with closets and cubbies. We hope our guests will love Log Haven Cottage as much as we do.
