Why Marci Forgrave chose Cambria
Cambria is a perfect coastal village in Central California. The wineries are amazing and we feel no other place in California is better to take a vacation or have a family / friends gathering. Even corporate retreat. WALKING DISTANCE TO TOWN AND TO THE BEACH.

Perfect for a group event.
Fell in love with the bedrooms and the main room. The bar is stunning and really added to the magic of the event. Floor near bar was a tad sticky, made need to be stripped and polished, like wood floors do.
Kitchen made the meals really easy. Very spacious and well supplied for cooking / serving.
Bathrooms were spotless, which is something I always inspect closely.
our group of nine couples just loved our stay. Room for everyone, sitting by the fireplace, cooking gourmet meals in the large kitchen and Happy hour at the bar. Prefect place for a friends getaway weekend.
Thank you so much! So glad you got to have an amazing vineyard touring in the area. Come back again soon.
Perfect for large groups
The mansion use to be a hotel/restaurant/bar so the rooms are very comfortable, sound proof and plentiful. Perfect for large groups, we had four generations here for Christmas break! The descriptions and pictures make you believe that everything is in working order though, and it's not. Besides the parlors fake fireplace, none of the bedroom fireplaces work and the wall heaters do not tone down so you cook in your room if you leave them on. One rooms wall heater didn't work at all. The kitchen is amazing and well stocked, except the oven temperatures are off. We had to raise it 100 degrees to get desired temps. The ice makers don't work in both refrigerators either. That would have been nice but we made due. The water from the taps is extremely hot! Be careful! The plumbing backed up a few times, including in the downstairs 'mens' bathroom. It sounded like the ceiling caved in! It did retreat and the other bathroom worked just fine though. In the scheme of things though, this property was perfect for our large family and our dogs to enjoy all the wonders of a small town near the beach. We did the Cambria Christmas Boutique which was incredible, saw the Elephant Seals on multiple occasions and went to Morro Bay more than once. Not to mention the spectacular Moonstone Beach. Don't miss it! Downtown Cambria is like visiting a town in another era, so charming and welcoming. A beautiful place to visit.
Great place to stay for families or a group of friends. Comfortable, clean and well stocked and in a good location with lots of things to do. Could use some updating, but a fun place to hang out.
I rented this property for a women's retreat - couldn't have asked for a more perfect venue.
House was great.
