This was the most unusual and memorable B&B we have ever experienced. There is just one suite, so we had the place to ourselves. The decor was amazing and hard to describe: if you can imagine a combination of Esalen and the Madonna Inn this might come close, but you have to see it for yourselves. In a 1950's home overlooking a wooded Cambria hillside, Victoria has created a fantasy in pink, purple and black with turquoise accents. Her incredible mosaic work is everywhere, from the fireplaces and the shower to the huge pond outside. Retro 50's stuff abounds, including almost everything in the full guest kitchen.
We slept well in the comfortable queen bed, and we used the spacious hot tub in the evening and again in the morning before Victoria's delicious brunch - we had the full English breakfast. But the culinary highlight was the dinner. Forget about going out to eat in Cambria, this is the best food in town (and believe us; we've tried other places). We chose the filet (perfect) from Victoria's standard menu, but she'll make something special for you if you ask.
Victoria and Justin were such gracious and accommodating hosts that it felt more like a stay with friends. The price was a little higher than at most B&B's but it was well worth it. We'll be back!
