Welcome! Our modern "castle" features lush botanical gardens (we have a dozen varieties of fruit trees) within a forested setting. Our King and Queen suites with private entrances open up onto private decks with views "to die for" of Monterey pine trees and redwoods amidst the surrounding verdant hillsides. We offer a full scrumptious breakfast, and serve a local wine and hors d'oeuvres on a tray to your room when you arrive. Our king and queen beds are pillow tops, guaranteed comfortable, with goose down pillows and comforters. We are knowledgeable about the local area and will be happy to share everything we know with you. We are only 8 miles from famous Hearst Castle!!

Eye, Ear and Heart Candy

5 on April 18, 2013

My cousin, who I haven't seen in 15 years came to CA from Tenn. to "be there" for me after the recent loss of my husband of 36 years. The highlight of their remedies for me, was a 2 night stay at a Bed & Breakfast....yes "Her Castle" was the place in beautiful Cambria, where I actually attended my last years of high school. This was my second experience staying in a B&B. Since, at one time, I was entertaining this very thing with my Mom several years ago, I was aware of the various things one could do to make guests feel welcome and have a happy stay. Well, Bill and Eleanor have it all covered....working in tandem they create a harmonious atmosphere (vital to me now)of how two can be a great team! The "eye candy" was the surrounding grounds, decks (both community and private) and particularly, when I had some rest time, browsing around the room and finding all the loving touches of a woman who is born to bring smiles to others as they discover delightful surprises she has placed all around. I found a wonderful CD to use for my rest time in lieu of TV. ("ear candy"). Our breakfast was beyond delicious and more than we could eat, though we wanted to! The "heart candy" was the sweetness with which this couple welcomed us and shared some of their life journey and lent a generous ear to ours. Thanks for this time in the process of my healing, Bill and Eleanor. I will be recommending your place.

We loved our stay with Bill and Eleanor. We felt right at home, the food was excellent and we could not have asked for a quieter place. Will definitely stay with them again.

This Is It!

Her Castle will exceed your expectations of a B&B by a wide margin. Eleanor's cooking, and her attention to detail within the room make Martha Stewart look like an amatuer. Having breakfast with Bill & Eleanor each morning was like catching up with old friends over a wonderful meal. We will never stay anywhere else in Cambria. You'll be wasting your time if you look further! Phil & Jeanette Ventura Las Vegas

Bill and Eleanor were terrific! They went out of their way to provide a great stay for us. Food and room was excellent. We came as strangers and left as friends.

the best welcome we've had anywhere, and nothing has been forgotten. Copious snacks, wine on arrival, generous breakfast (entertained by the visiting woodpeckers and jays) - after the early morning tray silently appears! Bill and Eleanor are such thoughtful hosts; nothing is any trouble and they are keen to help with ideas for dining and walks. We'll go back like a shot if we're down that way again.
