Rental Cottage


We offer a captivating studio cottage available for rental for stays of 30 nights or more. It is a pristine setting for an artist’s, writer’s, couple’s or meditation retreat. Built of entirely recycled materials, it is cozily nestled in the oaks above our farm.  Expect spectacular views of Pacific sunsets, coastal oaks and redwoods, and the surrounding Santa Lucia mountain range.  For those of you “ecologically minded” folk, your stay will be fully sustained by solar power and a spring-fed stream. The cottage sleeps two persons, has internet access and a fully equipped kitchen and bathroom.


Beauty, peace, and serenity will be the themes of your stay. Nature abounds not only in the special setting of the cabin and its views, but also on our fifty acres of property. Organic Meyer lemons, fruit trees, and berries in season delight the senses and tempt the palate.


Our property is located 12 miles south of Carmel, California off scenic Highway One, two miles from the coast on a paved road and one mile on a good dirt road. Upon leaving the coastal highway the anticipation builds as you drive through a gorgeous old growth redwood canyon, then leave the pavement for the last short mile on a hard-packed dirt road, and suddenly arrive to experience the wonders of Country Flat Farm. We recommend an all wheel drive vehicle for your comfort. All visitors are met by the owners on the paved road and guided to the cottage upon first arriving.

There are wonderful opportunities for outdoor activities near the property and to the north and south off of Highway One. Hiking trails abound in the Palo Colorado area where we are located. Access to the Ventana Wilderness is 7 miles away. The Monterey  Peninsula is only 12 miles to the north and Big Sur 13 miles to the south. Both destinations offer amazing restaurants, shopping, sightseeing, golfing, biking, and surfing. Additionally, Monterey hosts the world renowned Monterey Bay Aquarium.

To inquire about availability and pricing, please contact Janie Rommel-Eichorn by email at, or by phone at (831) 624-2894.
