This was our third stop on our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. We stayed at larger more expensive inns, but this was the place we felt most at home.
I have had hugs from owners on leaving before, but I have never had a hug on arrival until I came here!
I just felt as if we had come to stay with family. Eleanor bent over backwards to make sure we had everything we needed, and she had thought of everything. We were late arriving due to a hold up on the PCH Big Sur section, and by the time we arrived we were very tired.
We were greeted with a tray of goodies (cheese, salami,humous,crackers, etc) and a bottle of red and we just never left the room 'til morning!
We had the Queen Room (the smaller of the two) but it was ample in size for us. The bathroom attached was large and immaculate, with everything provided right down to a sewing kit!
Breakfast was fantastic taken in their own kitchen, with a view onto the deck where birds come to feed. We had a bowl of fresh fruit, orange juice, bacon, egg soufflé, gorgeous local sausages, and just when we thought we would burst, Eleanor produced wonderful light blueberry pancakes! It was just what we needed at the start of a busy day sightseeing. The area where the house is set is quite rural in feel, and both mornings we took a stroll before breakfast and enjoyed seeing the hummingbirds and woodpeckers and jays, then on the second day we were joined by five deer which actually walked within ten feet of us across the road.
The house is ideally situated for visiting Hearst Castle, and it is definitely worth a visit, and the little town of Cambria is lovely to look round with many galleries and good eateries.
Try Linn's for their homemade pies a la mode - to die for!
If we were able to plan our holiday again we would definitely allocate more time to Cambria, it is a lovely area, and you could not do better than to stay with Eleanor and Bill.
Thank you both. We loved every minute of it!
