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.

Another Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

Lover's Cottage is truly the best place to stay in Cambria. it is so cozy and beautifully decorated, and the owners have put incredible love and care into every detail of the cottage. It is close to the ocean and amazing hikes, and the excellent restaurants of Cambria are a stone's throw away. Though we loved having lunch in town or along Moonstone Beach, Lover's Cottage was right where we wanted to be each late afternoon and evening to enjoy the spectacular setting. The kitchen has everything needed to cook, and the adjoining deck is THE perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine and dine. The owner's are totally lovely people, and go out of their way to insure a wonderful stay. This beautiful spot has become our "home away from home"!

Peace, quiet and ambiance abound!

  • 5 of 5

Three nights was not enough time to be able to see all we wanted to see for our first visit to Cambria! The delightful treasures inside the Cottage were fun to find (but I don't want to spoil your discoveries!). Just let me say that I have many photographs that capture the peace and quiet of this Cottage near the sea. The kitchen is well equipped, and being welcomed by champagne and chocolates was yummy. The view from the deck with the full moon was breathtaking, and wandering the backyard garden in search of woodland fairies brought a smile to my heart. The king size bed was a little slice of heaven for sleeping! A fully stocked kitchen gave us the option of exploring local restaurants or having our meals at home.

With Cambria just down the hill and the coast a crow's flight away, we were really situated in a little slice of heaven. Close enough to explore up the coast to Moonstone Beach and Hearst Castle, Cambria called to us with her endearing restaurants, enchanting shops and galleries, as well as her decades old cemeteries.

All in all, Cambria's Lover's Cottage is most certainly a pleasurable destination get-away!

There was not a stone left unturned with all the amenities and comforts at the Cottage. So tastefully decorated, clean as a whistle, the Cottage was a delightful place to enjoy. You must go yourself to see what I mean. Diane

Charming venue

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at the Cambria Lover's Cottage and we absolutely loved it (again).

It is beautifully nestled in the hills above Cambria, surrounded by lovely wild gardens and landscape.

The cottage itself, is furnished and decorated in a lovely, beachside motif and all of that just adds to the ambiance. We loved having the TV and WiFi access when we wanted it, and just sitting and listening to the birds and the sounds of the sea when we didn't.

Everything is spotless, and the owners even provide a bottle of wine or champagne and chocolates upon your arrival. All the necessities and more than a few luxuries are provided, which is important, of course. We would recommend this lovely place to any of our friends and family without hesitation.

However, that being said, we simply love the relaxing feel of the cottage and, I'm sure, will be coming back again and again.

A great place to relax and unwind.

Relaxing, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was the best 3 day getaway in a long time. the cottage was awesome with many amenities and very relaxing. centrally located to many attractions, restaurants, wineries, beach, or just hanging out reading books. I would recommend the cottage to anyone, would gladly return again. truly a 10 plus.

A great space for inspiration!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property! I booked it as a surprise for my wife as an anniversary present. She needed someplace where she could journal and find inspiration for her songwriting and this was the place. Nestled in pine trees and beautiful homes it was perfect for us. The property owners were very helpful and accessible for questions. They even left a bottle of wine and chocolate for us upon arrival. As, other reviews have pointed out, the bathroom is on the first floor and the bedroom is on the second floor which is a little inconvenient but wasn't a big deal for us. It's 5 stars for sure!
