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. 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.

We shall return!

5 on July 11, 2014

Let's get the negatives out of the way ... there were none! The room was quiet, clean and well maintained; the area is inviting and the staff and owner are wonderful! The evening wine and cheese, chocolate chip cookies at night, the fireplace in the room and the full breakfast all add to the homeyness we experienced. The morning breakfasts were all delicious ... plenty of food ... and, true to the ad, we didn't need any lunch until the middle of the afternoon. Living in Hawaii, it's difficult to measure up to that experience, but, because of the J Patrick House, we will return! Aloha! Jeff and Beth

10th year going and still love it

My wife and I have spent almost every wedding anniversary with JPH except one year. In those 10 years, I have always enjoyed John, Anne and their staff, they really make the stay awesome. If you love to sit for hours and hear engaging storytellers, John ranks with the beatific them. And his commitment to his patrons is easily described as "like a family", as if you were long time friends staying at his personal residence. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable. Can't complain. Easy access to upper Cambria downtown and the beautiful gardens of the Cambria nursery across the street.

We were very pleased with our stay. The bathroom needed updating but the room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was delicious cooked by one of the owners. The chocolate chip cookies were so good and so was the wine and cheese hour in the evening. We felt relaxed as soon as we pulled into the lot. We will definitely return.

Great B&B in great location

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at The J Patrick House. We found them to be very accommodating, and appreciated the extra effort they take to serve their guests. It was the perfect spot to stop for a night on our way from LA to San Francisco. It is near a lot of beautiful coastline, and a short drive to Big Sur. I definitely recommend.

Beautiful Stay in Cambria

Room was great. Egg souffle for breakfast, yogurt, toppings, scone and fruit. Very delicious.

The perfect getaway!

There is nothing lacking at J Patrick House. Friendly and knowledgeable owners who care about their patrons. If I continue with my comments there won't be any room left for me when I book a return visit.

I have stayed here before and enjoy the location and peace and quiet. The breakfast is always good and the main course changes daily. I was disappointed that John, the owner and fireman, was not there to greet us and prepare our breakfast. That is the main reason I returned to this particular B and B. I did ask for two feather pillows and two foam pillows, but they were not able to accommodate this request. I'm not sure they knew what I was asking for. This seems to be a common problem in B and B's pillow availability and type. Also, tea was not available in the evenings. All in all we were pleased and had a good night's sleep and a hearty breakfast.

Excellent Relaxing weekend

When we first checked into our room and found out there was no TV in the room, my husband and we were surprised, but did not miss it one bit. It was absolutely one of the best relaxing vacation's we have ever had. Our room was comfortable and the service was exceptional. We loved the wine and hors d'oeuvres hour every evening and we got to visit with the other guests. Every evening there would be warm freshly baked delicious chocolate chip cookies and ice cold milk in the Carriage House sitting room. We are already looking forward to our next stay at J. Patrick House.

Nice and cosy. Great Innkeeper.. Thank you.

Fantastic experience!

We arrived on a Tuesday and were greeted by Patricia, a gracious innkeeper. The rooms are quaint, clean and comfortable. In the morning we were served breakfast by John, the owner, who is a terrific chef. In the late afternoon we had cheese, crackers and wine and each evening we had milk and homemade cookies. When we made our reservations Patricia suggested taking a wine tour with Wine Wrangler which we did on Wednesday. We had a fantastic time with two other couples and tasted some fabulous wines. Supper at Linn's that night was superb. (Be certain to make a reservation.) Each breakfast was unique. We were there three nights and plan to go back this fall. An especially wonderful place to celebrate an event and very romantic.
