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.

This house is stunning, a beautiful log cottage nestled into winding path with amazing plantings

  • 5 of 5

Log Haven cottage was more than we could have ever wished for. We were in Carmel by the Sea for our sons wedding.

The groomsmen had there pictures taken at the cabin while they were getting ready. Photographers loved the place!! We all just loved the house. Cheryl was very helpful, house was spotless, the gardens beautiful, and you could hear the ocean waves from the house. Would have loved to spend more than 3 nights!!

A slice of heaven on earth

We thoroughly enjoyed this home away from home, one block from the ocean!

The cottage is modern, tastefully decorated and well maintained, except it is unique -- it has a local history(log cabin) which have been displayed in pictures throughout the home. Cool factor!

The gardens and outside seating are extraordinarily beautiful, especially at this time of the year. And, the sound of the ocean adds to that beauty.

Everything about this property is heavenly.

And, if you don't cook while on vacation, you'll want to in this kitchen. It has everything you need. It's fantastic!

We can't wait to return! Thank you for having us, Cheryl. It was a pleasure to meet you!

Perfect location, perfect home

  • 5 of 5

We didn't let a rainy weekend stop us from having an amazing time in Carmel. The house was exactly what we were hoping for. The amenities in the bathrooms and kitchen were well thought out, the fireplaces were a great touch, and the beds were extremely comfortable. We couldn't have been in a more perfect location too; one block from the beach and walking distance to downtown.

The Log Haven Cottage was cozy and every bit as charming as the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay at the Log Haven Cottage was fantastic! The cottage was so cozy and every bit as charming as the pictures. We had a group of 10 and everyone was had a comfortable place to sleep. We could hear the waves from the ocean all night. We were in town for my sisters wedding and the ladies got ready upstairs, we took photos in the downstairs living room & outdoors in the patio area. What a perfect weekend!! (Owners/mangers were very accommodating as well) Thanks, Jaime!!

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.
