Marci Forgrave purchased this house in 1999

Why Marci Forgrave chose Cambria

Cambria is a perfect coastal village in Central California. The wineries are amazing and we feel no other place in California is better to take a vacation or have a family / friends gathering. Even corporate retreat. WALKING DISTANCE TO TOWN AND TO THE BEACH.

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 5, 2011

Having a great family reunion with CA, AZ and Colorado family gathering. Great place to stay. It really has met and exceeded expectations and kitchen is perfect. Taking trips to Cambria, Morro bay, Elephant Seals, Monterey and Solvang. Love the Cookie Factory! Such a laid back, relaxed atmosphere with not a fast food restaurant in sight. 24 people from 7yrs to 80 yrs. Yesterday we went to the Hearst Castle. Beautiful. Karaoke was fun.

Great place for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family gathered for a reunion and chose the Pickford House because of its location, half way between Northern California and Southern California, as we live in both locations. We had a fantastic time. The little town of Cambria is delightful. The Friday Farmers' Market is great. "Moonstone" Beach is great. It wasn't even windy on the beach! The house is big enough for all of us to gather around the table for meals and sit around the fireplace, although, it was too warm for a fire, it was still lovely! All of the rooms are nicely theme decorated. Being foodies, we are all about the kitchen and meals. Two nice big frig/freezers, 6 burner stove, oven (BUT no broiler, just FYI), electric waffle iron that works great! Toaster, mixer, blender.... some basic spices and cornstarch. The kitchen has seen better days, but it worked great and plenty big enough for a bunch of people working in there. The big bar made for a nice backdrop for a group photo as well as a place for gathering. We plan to go back!!! Thanks, Marci for a great time!

The Pickford House is a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
I have rented the Pickford House twice a year for the past 3 years, hosting a women's yoga retreat. I have personally stayed in the studio and was very comfortable, while my guests have stayed in the main house. Speaking on behalf of my guests, I have not had one complaint about the accommodations. Working with the owner has also been stress free and wonderful. I highly recommend this house for any type of gathering or event. It is warm and welcoming, and always feels like home when I arrive.

Outstanding Home for our Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5
I guess this is the year of the 60's as 15 of our family gathered together to help us celebrate our 60th Wedding Anniversary. The house is perfect for this size as there were bedrooms for all. It is great having a bath in each bedroom. The large gathering room and super bar was perfect for our wonderful meals and for lively conversation. The fireplace was a great spot in the morning for family to gather and share morning coffee. The location in Cambria is perfect for enjoying the wonderful Central Coast and we did just about everything - elephant seals, walks on moonstone beach, hikes along the Cliff trails in Cambria, Hearst Castle, Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo tea and shopping in the town of Cambria. When staying there don't miss the wonderful photographs all over the home, in the halls and in each bedroom. There is a lot of interesting history to see. We will highly recommend this home to all.

United Methodist Church Group

  • 5 of 5
We are a church hiking group from Northern California. Stayed in the Pickford House and really enjoyed its amazing features. Rich in period decorations, furnishings and charm. The bedrooms are elegant and the bar/eating area is so welcoming. We ate all our meals in the great room and the preparation was easy in the nicely appointed kitchen. Had fun with the Karaoke set up, talked and played games at the beautiful and rich bar. Our entire group was impressed and we agree to return for another weekend of fun.

Love Love Love the Pickford House!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Marci for letting us stay in your wonderful house. We stayed at the Pickford House for my daughter’s wedding weekend and had an intimate ceremony and reception there. I found it online and the pictures are great but when you see the house in person you will be blown away. So beautiful and even bigger in person. We ran from room to room and I couldn't decide which bedroom I wanted because each bedroom was more beautiful than the next. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with claw foot tub and flat screen TV and is decorated with antiques. Being able to have my immediate family all have their own rooms and be together was fantastic.

Marci was so helpful and thanks to her we had the perfect stay. She was always available to answer all my questions. Amparo came in and helped us in the kitchen and was a real sweetheart. The kitchen is incredible with 2 large refrigerators, professional stove and all the dishes, pots and pans, utensils you could ever need.

The dining room is magnificent and the big antique bar is one of the many highlights of the house. I can't wait to plan another visit. Maybe a couple’s weekend or a mini family reunion!! Thanks again Marci!!! We will definitely be back.
