I loved the place! Thank you for making the Cabin available. I am already planning my next trip back...hopefully
a full week in January. The place was very kind to me and my novel in progress...I believe I have my ending.
Thank you, again....
This adorable cabin is the perfect spot for a true romantic getaway. It is tucked back off of the street in a beautiful foresty area and the minute you walk in the door, you know youre not going to want to leave. When we arrived, the owner met us there and provided so many ideas for us on where to eat, site see, etc. And then she let us be for the rest of the weekend. Not only is the cabin amazing, but the town of Cambria is sooo quaint. We walked around downtown, did some wine tasting, smoked cigars, and treated ourselves to a nice dinner. Everything is so clean and fresh, it reminded us of Disneyland. And of course the beach is right there and we went on a beautiful hike along the San Simeon coast. The elephant seals were captivating. Anyway, we cant say enough good things about this cabin and town. In fact, we are so fond of it that we are planning to return for our one year anniversary in July and are very much looking forward to it!!
This review is well overdue. Spent a getway here for a few days in March 2013 and still have some great memories from the trip. The Cabin is very cute, clean, comfortable and well decorated. It had all the basics and was very cozy for my daughter, husband and I. We enjoyed opening all of the windows and doors and just the beauty of the outdoors. It's situated in a nice quiet neighborhood just above the main street/downtown area of Cambria. Would recommend a car unless you enjoy walking up and down hills. The owner the kept the place very well decorated yet simple as it should be in a cabin. Enjoyed the board games and loved the fireplace too. Hope to return sometime again soon! The place was just perfect for a romantic getway or a small family of 3.
The Cabin is a dear remnant of pre-over-developed California, and in it you get the taste of what a simpler, quieter life can be. We loved the mindful restoration of this early 20th vacation cabin. We loved sitting by the fire and opening the windows wide to let the morning sun in. We loved nighttime walks with only the sound of the ocean down the hill. We loved the screen of woodland around the Cabin. The bed and linens were perfect, as were the reading materials about Cambria. While we loved the serene, uncluttered interior, a few essentials were missing. A bath mat. Kitchen garbage can. A reading light in the living room. That said, we simply made do because the Cabin itself was so charming.
"The Cabin" in Cambria is a wonderful respite from the fast paced world. Everything in the cabin is well represented in the owners description and photos, no surprises. This is not the getaway for someone who is looking for state of the art electronics and kitchen facilities (go to a hotel) this is for those who respect the beauty and simplicity of a quiet simple life. There is wi-fi internet...so it's not primitive. This cabin has been well cared for and brought up to modern day use without compromising the original construction and integrity of the original cabin design. A great, relaxing getaway for those who like to check out....but not entirely
My husband and I first stayed in the red cabin a year and a half ago on a romantic getaway and we loved it so much that we brought our son this year. Although we spent most of our time visiting and photographing the spectacular coast, coming back to the cabin between our excursions was very relaxing. We loved the cabin's solid construction, the stone fireplace and stove, the tasteful furnishings and the beautiful original artwork. Although it is not large, the layout made it seem spacious. At night all you hear is the ocean. On a clear night you see thousands of stars. It's located in a lovely little quiet neighborhood and we took many walks My husband is a runner and loved being able to run to the beach from the cabin. The kitchen contents are pretty basic and the bathroom is small, but that said, it's still a slice of paradise.
We came upon this listing by accident and so glad we did! I'm not much for commercial hotels as they usually lack personality and are overpriced. As another reviewer said, much better value than the hotels on Moonstone Beach. Did that once and there was a team of acrobats above us and possibly some Whirling Dervishes next door. The Cabin was completely peaceful and serene! Even though we had viewed photos of The Cabin online, we were taken aback by the wonderful charm of this place. The hardwood floors, The high ceiling beams, elegant fixtures and many windows with the perfect balance of light and privacy. The white interior wood walls are a great backdrop for all wonderful original artwork and photography throughout. The cute kitchen had just the right accoutrements to make a great meal. That is what my chef husband did after we decided that we didn't want to leave to go out to dinner the one night we were there! It was just too nice! We loved the selection of movies and thought it was a funny coincidence that they were all favorites of mine. The fireplace was a such a treat and what a nice surprise to see that it was set up with firewood, ready to go. I just loved the rustic garden. The giant aloes outside the front door. lavender and various trees. The sofa was a comfortable place to settle in for a movie and the bed was comfy as well. We talked about out stay there the whole way home! I look forward to coming back! PS. We'd give this 6 stars if we could. Thank you very much!
