Recommended by Sunset Magazine. Trip Advisor Award of Excellence. The J. Patrick House blends with its wooded setting above the village of Cambria. An authentic log home, the main house overlooks a forest of tall Monterey pines. A relaxing, romantic getaway awaits you. From the main log cabin you can stroll through the lovely garden under the passion vine-covered arbor to enter the charming Carriage House, where you will find seven beautifully decorated rooms. Private Baths and Wood Burning fireplaces. Enjoy Irish country charm and amenities. Free wifi is available. At 5:30 each day enjoy the company of guests and hosts in the cozy living room of the log cabin. Your choice of homemade hors d'oeuvres are complimented by fine wines. We serve a full breakfast in our Garden Room. Nearby attractions include Cambria's many art galleries, antique malls, quaint shops and world renowned restaurants. Visit the local Central California vineyards, the splendor of Hearst Castle, or a breathtaking drive to Big Sur north on Highway One.

January visit

5 on January 26, 2015

We stayed at the J Patrick house on January 19th. Cheryl was very helpful and even switched our reservation to better accommodate my 90 year old mother and her access to the shower. We loved everything about our stay. We were tired so we missed the nightly cookies, but were able to participate in the wine and cheese hour. Cheryl assisted us in securing reservations for the Hearst Castle finding a place for dinner. We live in Indiana, so we may not be back real soon, but will definitely return when in the area.

Our second visit was better than our first. The new ownership is doing a fantastic job in exceeding the excellent standard the previous owners had attained. Wonderful time. Thanks.... Rafael and Martha

Loved Every Minute!!

My husband and I were looking for a nice little place to getaway and be distracted from the fact that our kids would not be with us for Christmas. We decided upon J Patrick House after reading the reviews. We were treated like family from the moment we stepped inside, which was especially appreciated under the circumstances. We later learned that our daughter had arranged with Linda to have a gift basket and champagne there when we arrived, and Linda and Cheryl went out of their way to accommodate the request. We honestly felt like we were visiting the home of an old friend or relative. The place couldn't have felt more cozy, the room was perfect and the bed comfortable. Cheryl even puts coffee and tea in the common room outside the guest rooms so guests can have some first thing in the morning, which I loved! The breakfasts we were served each morning were homemade, fresh, healthy and delicious! Our favorite part of the stay was the wine hour every evening before the guests left for dinner. Cheryl served wine and snacks in the living room and she participated in the social hour, enjoying it as much as we did. On Christmas Eve, there were three couples staying and Cheryl planned a game that got everyone talking and laughing and interacting. It was a very special time and none of us wanted to leave for dinner. We could not have been happier with our choice to stay at J Patrick for Christmas and we are already planning our next trip to Cambria!

Found our Favorite B&B

We had a great time at J Patrick House. Linda & Cheryl were very helpful and entertaining. We got there later than we wanted to, but they made sure we were able to easily find our room. We enjoyed the brief "treasure hunt". The room we stayed on is very cozy and clean. We loved the fireplace. And the breakfast, did I say they were heavenly, well it was. Since it's our first time in Cambria, they provided us with helpful and detailed information where to go and what sites to see. They even made dinner reservations for us at Madeline's which was also delightful. The wine & cheese hour was great, and the cookies and milk every night just puts icing on the cake. Thank you again Linda & Cheryl. We will definitely be back. ~ Jenny & Christal

New on premises owners very responsive to any need. Friendly, family like atmosphere. Excellent food. Gracious hosting. Could NOT be better! We came for our 45th wedding anniversary and owners acknowledged and prepared for us accordingly. This is second stay for us, but 1st under new ownership. NO disappointments. Jim & Valerie Sabalow

Our wonderful time at the J. Patrick House

We fulfilled a delayed desire to stay at the J. Patrick House in Cambria, CA. Due a death in the family, we were unable to fulfill our earlier reservation. Linda and Cheryl, the new owners, have knocked themselves out making the J. Patrick House fresh and beautiful. Linda could not have been more accommodation to our needs. We also enjoyed the Scarecrow festival in Cambria that occurs in October. What lovely memories.

Love Cambria

J Patrick House Cambria, Ca Review

I felt like a princess! Our hostess Cheryl was gracious and fun, the rooms were lovely and comfortable, and the food was delicious. We had wine and appetizers at 5:30, and milk and homemade cookies before bed. Every little detail was perfect. Highly recommended!
