One of Pacific Grove’s most celebrated historic homes - just a short walk from downtown, the beach, and the monarch butterfly groves - allows you to host your large family gatherings in the gracious style of bygone eras. The 5-bedroom, 4. 5-bath home with distant ocean views has been restored and updated, keeping its beautiful Victorian detailing while also adding modern conveniences. Built in 1880, it was the home of Pacific Grove’s first doctor, and is the recipient of a Heritage House Award. Four bedrooms have en suite baths. High ceilings with crown moldings, vintage fixtures, and a secret wine cellar in the kitchen are just a few of the vintage delights to be found in the 2, 900-square-foot residence. The décor is a mixture of antique and contemporary style, enhanced by original artwork and hardwood floors throughout. The pet-friendly home is within a few blocks of charming downtown Pacific Grove and its galleries, shops and restaurants, and is also an easy walk to the beach and Monterey Bay Recreation Trail. Other nearby attractions include Pebble Beach, Monterey Bay Aquarium and Cannery Row. Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary cheese and wine or sparkling cider, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, spa robes and beach gear with everything you need for a day at the beach including chairs, blankets, towels, umbrella and cooler.
