Wonderful surprise!

4.8 on October 19, 2014

This was our first time in a B & B and we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was most hospitable and accommodating in every way. The little touches were so nice. The food was excellent and beautifully presented with little condiments for each course which were delicious.

Great second time around

We've stay at the J Patrick House whenever we visit Cambria and Paso Robles, it's a great place in a great location. We wouldn't think of going anywhere else

Sept. in Cambria

I want to bottle Linda and Cheryl's energy. When we arrived they had only been open as the new innkeepers for 8 weeks and had completed all their renovations in only 10 days! I also want their contractor. What a charming place they have created in this peaceful environment that seems way more secluded than it is. Cheryl had milk and cookies in the common area every evening before we settled in and coffee early each morning before breakfast. Speaking of breakfast - totally delish! A perfect beginning to every day. Cheryl made us all feel so welcome and pampered. We are looking forward to a return trip.

Love love love it!!!

New owner Linda is the best cook and hostess! You will love the new decor....not your "Grandma's" house anymore! Very contemporary and stylish! My husband and I had a wonderful relaxing anniversary weekend there.

Delightful stay

Newly updated accommodations that were well done. Gracious proprietor. Wonderful breakfast! Very nice appetizers with wine to visit with other guests the evening we checked in. Would definitely stay there again!

Remarkable stay at J. Patrick House, Cambria

5 on September 09, 2014

I have stayed here over many years and looked forward to meeting the new owners, Linda and Leslie. At the time of my stay, they were in the midst of pretty extensive refurbishing and they called me ahead to suggest I stay somewhere else. I though it might be fun to see what they were up to and went ahead and stayed with them anyway. They graciously declined to charge me and I had a delightful stay in a lovely updated room. They are making a real commitment to upgrade the rooms and common areas and it's going to look great. In addition I got a chance to sit and get to know them and learn of their plans. In the morning a terrific breakfast was brought to my room (no floor in dining porch yet!). This may have been my most unusual B&B stay, with all the contractors milling about and the wet paint, but it was one of my favorites of all time. I look forward to my next stay, to see the final product and catch up with Linda and Leslie. J. Patrick House looks to have a great future. Jim Cuthbertson, El Cerrito, California

Good time at The J. Patrick House

4.0 on September 08, 2014

We spent two days at this delightful B & B. Cheryl was a great hostess, always concerned with our well being. We had a comfortable room and the cookies and milk provided each evening were a great, unexpected, treat. J. Patrick House is only about 7 miles from Hearst Castle and many seaside vistas. The town of Cambria offers many interesting places to eat and shop. If you are looking for a quaint place to stay, this is it. Bob & Sherrie, Sun Lakes, AZ

What a wonderful weekend

4.4 on September 04, 2014

Planning the long Labor Day Weekend late and visiting a small town I had not seen for 20 years as well as introducing my girlfriend to her first B&B experience, I was definitely a bit nervous. Yet, from the minute we arrived we were so incredibly well taken care of. Pat shared with us all Cambria and surroundings have to offer, and there is plenty to do, amaziing for such a cute little town. Cheryl and Linda, new owners for 5 weeks, were very accommodating. It was such a treat to meet them and other guests during the wine and cheese reception in the afternoon. Dinner plans were exchanged as well as the day's experiences reviewed. Our room, Tipperary, was on the ground floor, had a beautiful 4-poster bed and fireplace, and was close to a little sitting area where coffee was available at 7 in the morning, an hour before breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, well, one could say it was more like brunch. Healthy fruit salads followed by an incredible warm dish, Cheryl was very creative with her preparations. We also enjoyed the porch area in the evening for a final nightcap. Yes, the quiet rooms are old but definitely have their charm. When we left on Monday, the Inn was closing for about 10 days. As many others have written here, the passion of Cheryl and Linda will soon be reflected in upgrading this lovely place. I am sure the character of this lovely place will not get lost. We cannot wait to pay another visit to the Patrick House and would highly recommended to anyone visiting Cambria. Dieter & Kenya (September 2014) Stayed September 2014, traveled as a couple

Great Stay!

The reservation did not go through the service. I had to call directly to the B&B. Charming hosts - We will definitely return. We just pray the water problem in Cambria gets better for everone.
