CAMBRIA LOVER'S COTTAGE!

Cambria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Other (See Description), Sleeps 3

The perfect relaxing getaway!

This early 1900's cottage has been tenderly and tastefully restored creating a private and captivating retreat for you and your loved one. You'll sense the effort to anticipate your requirements for a memorable and replenishing stay, including a bottle of wine and chocolate inviting a toast to ''your'' stay.

Front and rear decks surrounded by ancient oaks and pine plus a charming flower garden enhance the ambiance of this very private cottage.

The crisp ocean air will greet you morning and evening. All your senses will be heightened as you listen to the distant bark of seals and crashing waves. Deer walk through your front yard along with racoons, squirrel, wild turkey, and the ever darling covey of quail. A myriad birds alone provide hours of entertainment.

Enjoy the king size bed, and cozy gas fireplace after a day of exploring.

Walk night or day to the ocean and hunt for wildlife in the tide pools where you can sit and watch the otters, humpback whales, and dolphins (seasonal). Bring your comfy shoes - it is uphill on the way back but it's worth it!

If you must work we have hi speed internet and telephone.

The satellite TV offers nearly all the premium channels and we stock the cottage with everything you'll need. If you forget something, the quaint village of Cambria is just a 5 minute drive.

One note for our tall guests. This cottage was built around 1907 and some tall guests (over 6'1) may have to duck through doorways. For the comfort of all our guests there is no smoking in or around the unit.

A Very Cozy Cottage

Had a wonderful stay at this sweet cottage during Thanksgiving break. Very quiet with
lovely garden and outside deck for my bird watching. Saw lots of deer and some wild
turkey on my walks. Will go back again for sure. The bed was very comfy and it really was
a home away from home.

A Pleasant Experience Not to Be Repeated

My girlfriend & I stayed at the Lovers Cottage over the summer. We loved the decor,location & overall coziness the Cottage offered. It was quiet, clean and the perfect getaway. The trip was so enjoyable that we decided to return... Upon contacting the Property Owners and successfully placing a deposit for a second stay at the cottage, we received an email containing the following:

"After your last visit to the cottage, housekeeping contacted us regarding evidence of smoking in the cottage. Just a reminder that smoking of any kind is NOT permissible per your rental agreement. If you will not be able to comply, we will gladly refund your deposit so that you might secure lodging where smoking is allowed. We did not deduct from your damage deposit last visit, and in fact, assisted you with your forgotten device".

The both of us couldn't believe it. Were both non-smokers and repulsed by smoking of any kind. Could the owners have been confusing us with a different guest? Apparently not. We were both looking forward to returning and thought the Cottage was awesome. Upon returning home, we realized we left an Mp3 player behind and Sharon and Don were kind enough to mail it back to us and subtract the cost from the security deposit. Regardless, The tone of the e-mail was passive aggressive and the accusatory nature of it was not only insulting, but erroneous. They actually mentioned that they did not deduct from the damage deposit, which is because there was no damage whatsoever. We went out of our way to clean upon our departure and were very conscious of the overall upkeep during our stay.

The Lovers Cottage was too good to be true. Never in either of our lives, have my Girlfriend or I been accused of something so farfetched, and the entire accusation is bizarre and insulting enough to the both of us, that we don't feel comfortable returning. We don't want to be held accountable for any "damages" or be subject to false allegations, especially ones that have financial implications.We will secure lodging where smoking is not permitted and in addition to that, where we can have some peace of mind knowing that we are not going to be falsely accused in such a ridiculous manner.

Being objective, the entire stay was great for the most part. I will note however that upon check in at 11:00 am, no one was present. The housekeeper showed up late and we waited an hr. for her to prep the cottage. It was worth looking past, until this fiasco.Be aware...

Relaxed, Rested, and Rejuvinated at the Cambria Cottage

My husband and I spent 3 glorious days relaxing and resting at the Cambria Cottage. The Cottage is perfect for a couple but could comfortably accommodate a child as well who would certainly enjoy the cozy sleep alcove down the hall from the master bedroom. The pictures posted on this site represent the accommodations very accurately although nothing could convey the sense of calm and warmth that came over us when we arrived at our home away from home.
The Cottage is charming with just a touch of quirky in a pleasant neighborhood near the ocean. Your entry into the cottage is from the driveway level. There is a generously sized deck with seating that leads you into the cottage. Inside the door is a comfortable entry area that leads to the nicely stocked kitchen where there is a good sized table and small sitting area. This is also the level that the bathroom is on. Off of the kitchen is a large deck with a grill, large picnic table, and several chairs. The deck overlooks a small but nicely landscaped garden with a variety of plants.
On the lower level of the cottage there is a nicely appointed living room with a cozy fireplace, television, and ample seating for lounging, reading, or snoozing. There are French doors leading to the quaint garden. The master bedroom with king-size bed is also on this level as well as the sleeping alcove with twin bed, a large closet, and laundry room. There is an ample and eclectic collection of music and movies that should entertain most tastes.
We spent our time in Cambria bicycling (the hills around the cottage can certainly be a challenge,) exploring the Big Sur coast, visiting Paso Robles & local wineries, and relaxing at the Cottage. Be sure to stop at Linn's for some pie and a sandwich at Sebastian’s Store in San Simeon (some wine tasting there expands the experience nicely!) The Elephant Seal Rookery north of San Simeon is a rare opportunity to enjoy these incredible animals in their own environment. And the local deer were as bountiful as we've seen since traveling in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
This is my 7th trip (my husband's 5th) to Cambria and we always find a wonderful combination of activity and relaxation. The Cottage has certainly elevated the R & R portion of our trips and we hope to return again soon. I dare say that there are many (ourselves include) who would like to maintain a standing annual or bi-annual reservation! Thanks so much Sharon & Don for your wonderful Cottage and hospitality!

Well stocked beautiful cottage

Thoughtfully furnished and close to ocean, very comfortable bed. Stocked with everything you might need during your stay. BUT if you have any knee or hip issues the kitchen and bathroom are upppstairs and the bedroom and living room are downnnstairs, a little hard making middle of the night bathroom visits. Chamber pot might work...

What a wonderful time. It had everything we expected and more. Very peaceful, can't remember sleeping so well. We went for nice walks, saw plenty of wildlife. Mostly, relaxed. They have an extensive video and book library they we took full advantage of. I have already recommended this property to family and friends. Don & Sharon, thank you so much, and we will return.
