Cambria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Warm, relaxing, quiet, romantic and serene are some of the descriptions used by people who've made our hillside Garden Cottage their Cambria destination. You can enjoy an idyllic Cambria experience in this tranquil location surrounded by Monterey Pines and terraced gardens.

An all-wood interior with streaming light from two large window seats combine with a pyramid roof and skylights, enhance the simple yet elegant interior. A cozy wood burning stove, carpeting in the main room, with a firm and comfortable double bed makes this a perfect Cambria getaway. You'll find the convenient tile-floor kitchen and wood/tile bathroom with standard-size shower (29' wide X 26' deep) quite pleasant. Premium linens and bathrobes provided. An extended window seat in the main room overlooks the forested canyon. A second window seat offers tranquil views. WiFi ready, no TV. Use the large garden deck to enjoy the private peaceful canyon, wildlife, and distant ocean. The deck is the perfect place for morning yoga, an afternoon glass of wine, and an evening canyon sunset.

You'll find this property unique because it offers an experience of tranquility, open space, privacy, nature views and quiet surroundings, all within walking distance to Cambria Pines Lodge, East Village shops, restaurants, and the Fiscalini Ranch trailhead.

A wonderful cabin experience for a couple or individual needing serene retreat space and a comfortable place to unwind after enjoying a day on the central coast.

A relaxing, fun week in Cambria

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the Garden Cottage. It is well equipped, the toiletries are local and lovely. The kitchen works well. The cabin is comfortable and cozy and we took full advantage of the window seats, they are surprisingly private. We loved walking down the hill for a latte every morning and then many days walked through Fiscalini Ranch to the coast boardwalk and back. Lissa and John are accommodating and helpful. This vacation we came with our batteries recharged and were refreshed. Great place to reconnect with the one you love.

2 night stay

  • 5 of 5
Very much enjoyed this property. Owners are very nice and helpful. Perfect place for couples
wanting to be close to nature/hiking and yet close to town. This unit has a comfortable queen bed and 2 large bay windows with seats you can lie down on. At night you can gaze
at constellations right from the window alcove. We walked to town using a trailhead half a block away from our door. The cottage sits above a steep ravine which provides a dramatic backdrop from your windows. It is quiet and great for sleeping. I would stay there again and highly recommend this place. Many nice personal touches in the unit create an inviting ambiance.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I just spent 3 delightful nights in The Garden Cottage. Needed some time away from life 's busyness to celebrate our anniversary, and this place hit the spot. Delightful, quiet location, within walking distance to trails and town. Just a matter of a few minute's drive to the shore to catch the sunsets on the boardwalk and tide pools.

Even though it is behind the owner's home, the cottage felt very private, and greeted us with many thoughtful details to make the stay special.We felt as if an old friend, who knew us well, had been preparing for our arrival. Everything was sparkling clean. The kitchen is adorable, the garden deck makes you feel like you're wrapped in the beautiful surroundings, but the best things were the window seats! Could've spent the whole weekend there. Ahhhhhhhh......

The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is we found the bed to be uncomfortably soft, but I know that can be a personal preference thing. In fact , we were trying to figure out how we could make the bed work for another visit, because everything else was so heavenly!

Grateful to the owners for sharing their little bit of heaven with us !

Restorative Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is the place to disconnect from the hustle of city life. When I first realized no TV was in the room, I was a little freaked but then found it to be quite restorative to my soul. The cottage is very quaint and peaceful. I would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful cottage

  • 5 of 5
When we opened the front door it seemed like home. The cottage is very comfortable, clean and well stocked. The window seat is fabulous for reading a book with the window open. You can hear the wind in the trees and the birds. No traffic sounds. The owners give you all the privacy you need but you can call them if you need help or suggestions. We did not see them all weekend. Cambria is charming. We would like to stay longer next visit.

Perfect little cottage!

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I came up here for a little getaway as a retreat from LA and it was the absolute perfect place to unwind. The location is quiet and picturesque. We felt at home the moment we stepped inside the cozy cottage. The reading nooks were our absolute favorite. John and Lissa have a beautiful property in a charming coastal village. This garden cottage will forever be one of our favorite places to escape to in Cambria. Thanks again, John & Lissa!
