Guestbook comments from the manager

August 5, 2011

Having a great family reunion with CA, AZ and Colorado family gathering. Great place to stay. It really has met and exceeded expectations and kitchen is perfect. Taking trips to Cambria, Morro bay, Elephant Seals, Monterey and Solvang. Love the Cookie Factory! Such a laid back, relaxed atmosphere with not a fast food restaurant in sight. 24 people from 7yrs to 80 yrs. Yesterday we went to the Hearst Castle. Beautiful. Karaoke was fun.

Just spent a very nice weekend in Cambria, staying at the Pickford House

  • 5 of 5

The House was ready for our party of nine adults. We used all 8 second floor bedrooms. Everyone slept comfortably. We used the kitchen and bar b-que facilities. Sat around the great room and fireplace. Several of our group brought there acoustic guitars so the location of the house allowed us to sing along with out disturbing the neighbors. We did stay in doors. Some of our group even ventured to walk the 1.5 miles into town, others drove in. This is our third stay at the Pickford. All cooking utensils are provided, but one of our "cooks" provided his own knives. My best ccompliment is we will be back next year.

Family Retreat Bliss

  • 5 of 5

First let me say there are not a lot of places that will accommodate up to 29 people!

This is the second time we have rented the Pickford House for our Mother's birthday gatherings. The Pickford house makes you feel as if you've stepped back in time with it's 1800 decor while accommodating large groups of people at the same time. The fact that each quest has their own bedroom and bath, I can't say enough about. The downstairs bar/dinning area allows all to gather at the same time to enjoy each others company. The surrounding area, of course, speaks for itself.

Would we rent again? You bet!!

Wonderful Family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 17 in all, enjoyed The Pickford House last month for our family reunion. We had such a wonderful experience. Everyone enjoyed the lovely rooms and convenient bathrooms. When we were downstairs playing games the young babies rested well upstairs, not even disturbed by the noise. The large kitchen and dining area worked so well for our delicious meals. We definitely want to come back again. Thank you Marci for all you helpfulness, and a big thank you to our wonderful onsite helper.
