2Br, 2Ba + Den In Ideal Location For Exploring The Monterey Peninsula (Sleeps 6)
About Bob Froese
The Gingerbread Cottage was originally built in 1937 as a two bedroom, one bath cottage which was perfect for Barrie Hart Froese's first home in her hometown of Carmel while serving as a vice principal at Carmel Middle School. She moved to San Francisco, met her husband Bob and has also lived in Barrington, IL and now in Montgomery, AL but has always kept this home as a rental.
Bob Froese purchased this Cottage in 1980
Why Bob Froese chose Northeast Carmel
As the old saying in real estate goes, Location, Location, Location. Virtually all Monterey Peninsula activities and attractions are within 10 minutes from the property conveniently located less than half a mile from the Carpenter Avenue/Highway 1 intersection. Ocean Avenue in Carmel is less than a mile away and within five miles of the home is the Lodge at Pebble Beach, the Monterey Wharf, Cannery Row and the Monterey Aquarium, and the Crossroads and Del Monte Shopping Centers. Add a few more miles heading south and you can be at the Highlands Inn or have a meal overlooking the Pacific at Rocky Point with many photo opportunities of Big Sur along the way.
What makes this Cottage unique
In 2014, the decision was made to totally renovate the house and expand it to its current configuration. All that was kept were three of the outside walls and the original roofline - and of course the gingerbread woodwork on the outside of the house. While still maintaining the cottage atmosphere, the house has all new stainless steel appliances, a full size washer/dryer and WiFi throughout.

Charming and cozy
As described. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This was our second stay at the Cabrillo Cottage and would stay there again.
Better in person!
One of the very few rentals that truly felt like home. Space is perfect for 2-6 people (if two are fine with couches). Easy parking for the rental car, easy to make all meals and easy access to all your home away from home needs. Would stay here again and recommend to anyone coming to Carmel.
Thanks Emma, you're welcome back anytime.
Great cottage for families with all amenities necessary. If you have a small child getting to Carmel almost requires driving, which is the only downside. Carmel itself is a beautiful little town.
Thanks George. Glad to hear you were able to enjoy Christmas at the cottage.
Wonderful Little Cottage
The property exceeded our expectations. It was cozy, comfortable and very well maintained and updated. We would certainly consider staying here again if we make our back to Carmel in the future.
Bryan, thanks for your kind words. You are welcome back anytime.
Cottage is adorable. Well stocked, clean, and just perfect for a long weekend getaway. Next time we will stay longer!
Amy, thanks for the kind words. Hope your parents enjoyed the house.
Adorable and clean! Perfect Carmel cottage!
My daughter and I had a visit to Carmel, but cottage was wonderful, comfortable and clean! We walk to town about a mile and back every day was a great walk amongst the beautiful cottages of Carmel! We enjoyed the patio, everything was just perfect, but definitely stay here again!
Deidre, thanks for the kind works. Glad you enjoyed the outdoor space. You are welcome back anytime.
