Pacific Grove is a lovely area!
My husband, daughter, son-in-law, son and daughter-in-law stayed at the Little Yellow Cottage for three nights. There was no electricity when we arrived, so we went to the Red house café next door for dinner after calling Cheryl. She texted before dinner was served to say that the electricity had been turned on. I ran over, knowing that if did not have electricity, the six of us would have to find a bed and breakfast quickly. Thankfully, we did have electricity!! One day, we spent one day walking the Monterey Peninsula Recreational Trail http://www.traillink.com/trail/monterey-peninsula-recreational-trail-(monterey-bay-coastal-trail).aspx and visiting Monterey Bay Aquarium. It would have been great to have bikes for the trail, it was so nice. The Aquarium was well worth visiting although we wished we had children with us - there were some great things for kids!! Another day, we drove to Pinnacles National Park and enjoyed some great hiking. For $10 a car, you will get a map and instruction (bring water bottles, sunblock and good hiking shoes) for short or long trips with amazing views. We enjoyed the shops and restaurants in the area, the highlight was dinner at Lover's Point. The chef was so attentive to our vegan daughter-in-law that I think some patrons wondered if we were famous people - ha ha! We all enjoyed our dinner so much and the view was gorgeous! The cottage wi-fi was poor (needs a decent router) but otherwise, we had everything we needed. Great water pressure for showers, plenty of towels, adequate supplies, and comfortable beds. Adding a fan or two would be helpful, there is only one. It is important to note that two bedrooms have a bathroom attached and one does not. The people in that third bedroom have to walk through one of the other bedrooms to use the bathroom. It was a good time with family and we loved our visit to Pacific Grove.
