A Cozy Retreat

5 on February 17, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed are stay here very much! It was very clean, cozy and private. Mikki is very warm and welcoming and made us feel at home. We will definitely be going back.

A cozy getaway

5 on December 05, 2012

My husband and I stayed at the Bauers' Gilded Nest Artist's Studio for 9 days over Thanksgiving week, hoping for a comfortable and quiet place where we could spend some time reading and writing in between nature walks and sunshine. Micki's great cooking and warm hospitality made our stay easy, cozy, productive, and perfect! We enjoyed Micki's homemade continental breakfasts. For lunches and dinners, we alternately tried a few of the local dining options and prepared simple meals at home for ourselves, as the room came equipped with a mini fridge, microwave, large toaster oven, and suitably sized pots, pans, and utensils for cooking. This made our stay both more economical and relaxed. I would recommend the Artist's Studio to any couple looking for a romantic getaway. It's an absolutely cozy and charming place to spend time with a dear one.

Our elegant "Elegant Suite" stay!

4.6 on October 22, 2012

We stayed for 1 night in the Elegant Suite, which was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, had every amenity we could need, including a spare toothbrush (which we needed since we forgot ours!). The owner, Mikki, is super helpful and makes sure that your every need and comport were attended to. The price was also very reasonable for everything you get and for the amount of attention and service that comes with the room. Thanks Mikki!

Innkeeper Response

Weekend Get-Away

4.6 on October 20, 2012

We had a great time in Cambria and our stay at Bauer's Guilded Nest was lovely. We were so happy to find a last minute B&B available. We appreciated Mikki's care and concern for a special needs diet and the Cottage Suite was very clean, cozy, and comfortable. We loved watching the hummingbirds and enjoyed the peace and quite for our weekend get-away.

What a lovely way to spend our anniversary!!!

This is an amazing "homestay" experience. The place is immaculate and as charming as your hostess, Mikki. The breakfast was absolutely delicious with all homemade goodies. We choose the "light" option but we were well sated with wonderful muffins and a fabulous fruit, yogurt and granola dish. Mikki knows lots about Cambria and was more than willing to share lots of interesting tidbits. The accommodations were also peaceful and quiet. Enjoy!!
