Our History

Though originally purchased as a home to the original owner, Molly Lynch, she quickly built an extension to the original structure to house all of the travelers who came through Cambria. Named after her father, John Patrick Lynch, the J. Patrick House became the first bed and breakfast in this small coastal town in 1984.

The house was built off of the original owner’s Irish heritage. Every room is named after an Irish county and a four-leaf clover was placed upon the front of the carriage house for good luck and safe travels to all who stayed. To this day it is still mounted so that all who come and go are able to see it.

The J. Patrick House & Inn has had a few different owners over the years that have put in a lot of hard work to maintain such a lovely Inn.
