We loved staying in Karens Cottage just up the hill from the village of Cambria.We sat on the deck, enjoying the ocean view sunset with a glass of wine, while the dogs romped around the yard.The cottage is 1100 square feet, and the kitchen has all of the basic needs.For the price of a hotel room ($150) we had a whole house, plus view, plus serene quiet.I highly recommend Karens Cottage.Also had a great dinner at Robins.The whole town is decorated with Holloween,life-size mannequins.They are a riot.There are 400 all together and worth a trip in and of themselves.Sweet funny Cambria, also loved the French Bakery and love Squibb House.We were there to pick up our beautiful Amish cabinet. from

“Very clean and comfortable”
Reviewed 10 September 2012 for a stay in July 2012

This was a nice cottage up in the hills above Cambria. The owners live in the house on the same property, with a deck in between. You don't see them except at check-in. It is clean and affordable, no deposit and no cleaning fee, which was great. It has lots of room and very comfortable and is very well equipped; the kitchen, the bathroom You can park in their driveway, but to reach the place you have to walk uphill on the curved sidewalk. I had never stayed in a vacation rental, it was my 22 yr. old daughter and me. Even though it was a lovely place, I have decided I don't think I will go the rental route again. I worried about not leaving it clean enough, who wants to cook, do dishes, etc. on vacation? I do that all year long. Cambria is a lovely town,neat little shops and nice restaurants, Moonstone Beach is a must see.However, Cambria seems to close up shop pretty early at night. If I go to that area again I would stay in Morro Bay, there is so much more to do there. I love the Cavalier Motel in San Simeon as well, which is where we stayed last year. My daughter and I just wanted more excitement. In my mind, this would be a nice place for young couples. I would rate it excellent as far as price and comfort.

Thanks for being nice guests and for your review! There is a private walkway up to our place without stairs, and a small ramp, as well, which makes it more accessible for the disabled (and easier for wheeled suitcases, too). Cambria is a charming, quiet place to relax and getaway from it all, yet also has beautiful, scenic areas to visit and a variety of activities to enjoy.

“Cambria Cottage - Romantic Hillside View - Great Location”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

Owners were totally accomodating to make our 5th year anniversary weekend memorable. Lots of windows to enjoy the romatic hillside view of Cambria, yet close to main street. The fully furnished cottage was fully stocked with every kitchen & bathroom amenity imaginable, for example, electric wine cork remover & Keurig coffee/hot tea machine. The cottage was loaded with information of area restaurants, shops, points of interests, and dog friendly parks, etc... Great place to stay in Cambria for a couple or a small family.
