“A Truly Special Place”

This was our second stay at this lovely, sweet, and cozy little gem. Just like our first stay, we walked in the door and felt like we were coming home.

On our first visit, we admired the oak leaf geranium growing in the front yard. This time we arrived to find that Carol, the owner, had cut some blooms from the plant and placed them in water at the bedside. There was wood for a fire laid in the wood stove, ready to light. What a sweet welcome back that all was!

After stopping at Soto's for groceries on our way into town, we walked in knowing we had all we needed to make our first fantastic dinner. The kitchenware at the cabin is good quality, making cooking and dining at home a joy.

The weather was much cooler during our stay this time, and we truly appreciated the wood stove and firewood awaiting us, which kept us toasty every night while we cooked and ate our dinner and cozied up on the couch to watch a movie. We also appreciated the extra pillows and blankets.

The high ceilings, thought provoking art, and light filled rooms are such a treat for the eye. The woodwork throughout is beautiful; such craftsmanship is rare these days.

This cabin is the perfect home base for trips up and down the coast, and we went to Hearst Castle two days, Big Sur two days, Morro Bay and Harmony, as well as strolling around in Cambria and beachcombing a few times. We also enjoyed meeting up with Carol and chatting about so many things.

We were sad to leave, wishing we could stay longer, and filled with gratitude for our hosts and this dear beautiful little home.

“Wished I could have stayed more than one week”

My husband and I were celebrating 29 years of friendship and love and wanted
to get away to someplace quiet. The cabin was built in 1935 and the craftsmanship
was apparent in all the rooms. The place has a wonderful fireplace that we utilized
every morning. We loved that the neighborhood was so quiet. There are beautiful photos and artwork hung on the walls. We enjoyed having a kitchen that had everything that we needed. The bathroom has only a tub with a spray gun to rinse
off with but that also added to the charm of staying in a home built in the 1930.

“Not our cup of tea”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

people found this review helpful

It all depends on your preference. Refrigerator dirty, coffee grinder left soiled, coffee pot did not work properly. No regular shower, no shower curtain to prevent spray from hand held shower. No hair dryer. Over the years, we have stayed at several home/condo rentals and I cannot say this met our expectation. We have had several more amenities. Walk to Cambria only 0.6 miles but walk back is uphill and somewhat steep. Property is overgrown

“Pros and cons.”
Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

There are pros and cons to everything. On the plus side, this is a very quiet location in a nice neighborhood. It is close to the Village but not too close. It was suggested we walk to town but the walk back up a hill nearly a mile long would be tough. There is plenty of room in the cabin, which has lots of windows. On the minus side, it was not clean. Dust covered everything and when we went to put one of our travel cases under the bed for storage we were confronted by dust rhinos; no one had cleaned under there in a very long time. The top of the furniture was dusted off but the legs of the tables were very dirty and dusty. The toilet and sink were clean but the tub was not. We had to clean it since you must sit in the tub and bathe with a handheld shower head. The floors were grimy and the kitchen floor was sticky. Some of the dishes still had food on them. I find it especially annoying since we were charged a $50 "cleaning fee". Why?

How easy was it to book the property? How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

“Quiet Retreat”

people found this review helpful

My husband and I stayed at this quaint and quiet cabin over the fourth of July. The location is ideal as it is close to the beach and to the unique, little town of Cambria. We had a lovely time and would stay here again! The only suggestion I have would be to add a shower curtain and provide a hair dryer for guests.
