How to visit Wildcat Hill
Wildcat Hill, the former home of Edward Weston is a private residence. It is the home of Kim and Gina Weston. For the past 20 years Kim and Gina have been inviting guests to visit and experience the small modest home where Edward Weston and his last wife Charis lived.
Email: (preferred contact) to schedule a visit. We do get busy but we make every effort to find time to meet you!
You can also look at our events calendar to see what we have going on. If we have a workshop scheduled, we will be busy.
Stay Over at “Bodie House”
Come stay overnight at Wildcat Hill and immerse yourself in the historical feelings that surround the “little house with the big mood”. We would like to offer our guest studio “Bodie House” as a retreat for photographers and others longing to come to the central coast of California.
Bodie House was originally the writing studio of Charis Weston, wife and model of Edward Weston. Bring your camera, photograph the grounds, and visit this unique area surrounding the Carmel Highlands.
The cabin at Wildcat Hill was built by Edward’s son, Neil Weston in 1938. It was a one room building with a darkroom, bath and kitchen on the north end of the house, and a fireplace and bed at the south end.
The original cedar single wall construction building still stands today. The darkroom was easily accessible to Edward as he loved to go in and print in the very early morning while it was still dark. This enabled him to print and not have to worry about light leaks. Sometimes he printed with the window open. Here you can view historical pictures of Wildcat Hill
Other ways to visit Wildcat
Another great way to see the house and experience Wildcat Hill is to sign up for one of our workshops, especially “A Day with Kim Weston“.
During this workshop, you spend the day with us learning more about The Weston family’s contribution to fine art photography.
