Our fifth home and garden tour, Cottages, Gardens & Cantatas, was held Saturday, April 27 from 11 AM- 4 PM. The tour featured five homes including Harmony House, the home built by the Carmel Bach Festival founders. The home has recently been totally refurbished to its original design after experiencing a fire a year ago.

Surprise! could be the subtitle of last year’s tour for we featured several homes that aren’t what they may seem. There was a home that looks like a small cottage yet has been extensively remodeled in a very contemporary style on the inside. We showcased a home with a reverse floorplan to take advantage of views and a Comstock that is truly a diminutive storybook cottage. The fifth home on the tour sits in the coastal zone where there is an 18-foot height limit yet has three expansive floors.


Classical music will greet you at several homes performed by young musicians from the Monterey Peninsula. If you are a walker, it will be easy to go between several of them on foot.

Please note – tickets will be mailed in mid-April, not in June as your ticket receipt states.
