I also always serve fresh squeezed orange juice and pressed coffee.

I am also 6 miles from Hearst Castle in San Simeon, which gives several different tours every day. Leffingwell Landing, a beautiful picnic spot at the ocean, is just a couple miles away. Tide pooling is a great activity and there is a boardwalk along the ocean with spectacular views the entire length of Moonstone Beach Drive for walking or running on. And there are the famous elephant seals.
Year Purchased: 1992
About the owner: I am a singer songwriter, performer, recording artist and I live here alone now. Raised my two daughters in this home. Home birthed the second one here, who is 18 now. I was born in Bar Harbor, Maine, but moved to California when I was 19. First, Los Angeles for 14 years, because I was in the music business and still am. But when my first daughter was still less than 2, we wanted to move out of the city to a quiet village to raise her and ever since my husband and I visited Cambria and were married, in 1985, in the Old Santa Rosa Chapel, a historical site now, a stone's throw from this house, we had wanted to live here. When my music became successful enough, we moved here in 1992. We were divorced this year and so I run the B&B myself.
Why the Owner Chose Cambria: The minute we moved to Cambria, this was the house I wanted. Because there is nothing else like it here. A stately Victorian with a beautiful English rose garden complete with boxwood hedges in the front, and the elegance it evoked, just made me fall in love with it. Because I do keep the place very neat and it is filled with precious antiques, I do ask for no pets or minor aged children. Just one couple and one extra person is all I can accommodate.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Because I am a composer, I think the 1926 Mason & Hamlin parlor grand piano is quite a unique benefit here. It sounds exquisite and many of my guests have enjoyed playing it a bit.
