After our Carmel cottage tour this morning, I had to share a book I purchased about the area several years ago. If you love Carmel, this is definitely a book you’ll want in your library. In addition to photos inside many of the homes, it really goes back into the history of the area, so it’s an interesting read.

3 Things I Like About This Book:
- Provides glimpses inside many of the enchanting cottages of Carmel, as well as the history behind this community
- Homes featured inside look real and lived-in, don’t appear to be “staged” for the book. Lots of pictures, though I wish some were bigger
- Big variety of different style homes and interiors from cottage to more modern. Really gives you a feel for Carmel, considered “America’s First Artist Community”
