The Weymouth house is a cozy vintage home. It was moved to its wonderful location only 500 feet up from Moonstone Beach in 1935, and offers a comfort and charm all its own. The ocean view can be enjoyed from the quaint living room while sitting next to a blazing fire.

You may want to take in the view from trails along the bluff above the magnificent ocean, or venture down to the beach for a little beach combing, it’s called ‘Moonstone Beach’ for a reason…look carefully, you will most certainly find sea treasures. The lush lawn is a pleasure and it even has a fenced back yard for your furry, 4 legged, family members. (aka – DOG)

Everything promised and more!

This property exceeded our expectation and was by far our favorite place EVER! We have been visiting Cambria and staying in various vacation rentals for 20 years. We have stayed in large homes, small homes, beach front, and beach view. Some were expensive – some were not. Some allowed our four-legged guests – some did not. This one was CLEAN, cozy, and had a gorgeous yard for our small dogs. The linens are first class. The kitchen afforded all the modern amenities. We were close to everything. We could see and hear the ocean from our bedroom and living room We will forever return to this property.

Wow! This is the place!

After two nights at this incredible bungalow, we could only say ‚WOW‚This is a first class establishment, where every need is met, and everything is kept in perfect order and in spotless condition. The grounds are beautiful, and the location is convenient. The harshest critic would not be able to find fault. We would and will gladly return and highly recommend this inn to everyone

It is hard to leave this place!

Marguerite is so accommodating! She does everything to make your stay at her charming cottage comfortable! The place has a fabulous location for walking on the beach, walking to dinner at two different restaurants and riding bikes or walking to town. The cottage is homey and clean with the wear and appointments of a loving family’s long-time vacation house. It has redwood floors, comfy furniture, a well-stocked kitchen, excellent linens and books galore! We will be back!

Dreamlike Experience

The Owner, Marguerite, is a wonderful person with high values, integrity, and a lot of experience operating destination lodging. She was very gracious and provided a well-stocked rental. That aside, the place itself was extremely beautiful — the quintessential “Early California” experience that those of us who are lost in this world crave. This property provides easy access to everything that Cambria offers, is walking distance to the beach boardwalk, and is very quiet at night. You can hear the waves crash with the windows open as you dream about the next lovely day.

Better than expected!

My husband and I came here for our second wedding anniversary. The house is small but charming and plenty of space to spread out. Every night we sat out back in the yard and had wine while the sun sets. The main room with the king bed is SO comfy we had a hard time waking up. Marguerite is the sweetest lady and she even had candies out for us upon arrival. We never even used the TV, instead we turned on the fire place and my husband taught me how to play chess, we went to big sur, ate at ventana and our favorite mexican place in san simeon called el chorlito (a must!). I almost didn’t want to write a review because I didn’t want people to be in on my secret but this place is so amazing I had to share 🙂 You can hear the waves from every room in the house. To top everything off, her linens and towels smelled amazing!

Pastoral Pampering with a Plus

The Cambria Beach Bungalow is definitely a destination for any traveler to the Cambria area. The operative word here is, Privacy. The bungalow is set amongst the tall cypress trees just off Moonstone Beach Drive, walking distance to the beach and dining and just minutes from downtown Cambria. It’s only fifteen minutes to Hearst Castle and the other historic points of interest. The rooms are as inviting as the location, with fireplace, etc. The feeling of peace and welcome is cultivated by the innkeepers of the Blue Whale Inn , who seem to have anticipated every need of a vacationer. Most importantly, they are hosts who go out of their way to give each guest or couple a little extra pampering, while allowing them their privacy.

Local Activities & Area Information

At the foot of the scenic Highway One & Big Sur coast, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco, is the quaint seaside village of Cambria.

Cambria was settled in the early 1860’s with the towns center located in what is now East Village. By the 1880’s Cambria was the second largest town in the county, with a population of nearly 7000, and an active center of shipping.

In 1894, railroad lines were extended into San Luis Obispo from the south, resulting in the decline of coastal shipping and the isolation of Cambria. It was more than a quarter century before the first improved road to Cambria was completed.

In 1927, the area called Cambria Pines was subdivided into small residential lots. Today, tourism and real estate are the town’s main industries. Residents include artists and craftspeople, retirees, professionals, ranchers and farmers.

It took almost a decade for Cambria to settle on a name. In 1869, after going by Slab town, Rosaville, San Simeon and Santa Rosa, the name Cambria was officially adopted.

The dramatic coastal drive on Highway 1 in northern San Luis Obispo County has earned its reputation as one of the most scenic drives in the world. This area is home to Ragged Point, San Simeon, Cambria, Harmony and Cayucos.

How to Pronounce Cambria

An amusing controversy continues over the correct pronunciation of Cambria. Visitors and newcomers usually call it Came-Bri-a, while most residents agree on Camm-bria.
