History & Location

The J. Patrick House became the first bed and breakfast in the small coastal town of Cambria in 1984. Located on Lodge Hill, this charming house will be your home away from home during your visit to Cambria. Within walking distance of the house is the Cambria Pines Lodge Restaurant, open for lunch and dinner, and the Cambria Nursery and Florist, a full-service plant nursery, gift shop, florist, and wedding venue. The house is less than a mile from Main Street (accessible by foot or vehicle) where you will find quaint shops, bakeries, restaurants, a wine shop, and a small grocery store. With convenient access to Highway 1, the world-famous Moonstone Beach is just 5 minutes away, Hearst Castle 10 minutes, and just a quick 15-minute drive to the Piedras Blancas Lighthouse and Elephant Seal Rookery. Planning on doing some wine tasting while you’re in the area? The house is perfectly located to have a wine tasting service pick you up at the front door, and when you return home, enjoy the temperature-controlled wine fridge and under stair storage to store your new wine purchases.


The J. Patrick House Vacation Rental is a great option for larger groups that want a home away from home on longer vacations! This private, two-story home is located in front of our back building, a quaint 7 room Inn. Downstairs, you will find the perfect spaces to wind down after a long day exploring the Central Coast. The living room has a cozy wood-burning fireplace, a queen sofa sleeper, a 55″ flat-screen TV equipped with Google Chromecast, and a temperature-controlled wine fridge. Next to the living room and through a sliding door from the kitchen, there is a charming den with a queen sofa sleeper as well. These additional sleeping spaces are best suited for smaller individuals such as children and teenagers. Downstairs, you will also find a full kitchen beside a dining room with seating for 8. This commercial kitchen is equipped with a French door refrigerator, double ovens, a stand mixer, two dishwashers, and basic pantry staples that will make your vacation go more smoothly. Plus, there are plenty of board games for family game nights!


Upstairs you will find two bedrooms that will make you feel right at home. The master bedroom includes an en-suite bathroom with a tub/shower, a California King bed, a wood-burning fireplace, and a 50” flatscreen TV enabled with Google Chromecast.
