We want to thank Bill & Janis for making our first B&B experience very welcoming and comfortable. The rooms were nice and the breakfast was wonderful. We will be back.

Great weekend!

Thank you Bill and Janis for the wonderful final days of my guest's visit to California. We really felt home at your place and the breakfast was enough to keep us running all day! Your sincere interest to our stories and care about our comfort made the world of difference to other places.

I was so impressed with the warmth and hospitality provided by Janis and Bill. They were helpful and friendly. I felt like I was visiting beloved relatives staying in their home. I loved the rooms and found the pillows very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and big enough to carry us through most of the day. I will absolutely return and look forward to staying here again.

A Jewel of a place!

We had a five night stay in Dreydon House in August 2010 and thoroughly enjoyed a truly amazing break. Made even better by the hosts Bill and Janis who were so friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure our stay was a great success. The breakfasts and sight seeing advice were particularly impressive as was the overall comfort of the attractive accomodation.

Good breakfast

2.8 on October 30, 2010

We had a good breakfast for both days. Friendly people. Restaurant suggestions were good. A couple of things would have helped. A bath mat to put on the tile floor after showering. Hand towels to use instead of the large bath towel. Plastic cups in the bathroom for use in brushing the teeth. The larger bed in the tv/coffee machine room for couples with no children.

Innkeeper Response
We're glad you enjoyed your stay. We have a coffee maker and a 32" flat screen television on order for the queen room.

Gracious hosts in a lovely setting. Thank goodness we have GPS! Only drawback was shared bathroom but if traveling with family or close friends, not a problem. Wonderful 'cooked to order' breakfast with choices from oatmeal to pancakes to good old American Bacon & Eggs. We wish we would have been there earlier in the day to enjoy the back patio! In a word, delightful.

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Dreydon House Bed and Breakfast! For future guests reference, we only book with one party at a time. The bathroom is private for your use only. Sincerely, Bill and Janis Innkeepers

The best kept secret of Cambria

Shhh...don't get the word out too much. If you are lucky to get to stay at the Dreydon house you will experience First Class service from Bill and Janis. The value of this stay is amazing with two rooms and breakfast cooked to order. A strong recommendation for anyone visiting the central coast.

wish we could have stayed longer!

wish we could have stayed longer! we came to see the beach, tide pools, and maybe a whale. no whale sightings, but the drive along hwy 1, the beach in cambria at low tide, and the boardwalk along moonstone beach were just wonderful. our stay at the dreydon house was great too. The rooms were comfortable, we had everything we needed, and the house keepers were friendly and accessible. with this rental you get two bedrooms - a queen bed in one room with a private entrance, as well as a room with 2 twin beds, a microwave, fridge and access to a patio with a grill. had no idea we'd have all that space. the neat thing is - if you bring more people with you, the price doesn't go up. what a great value if you are traveling with another couple, family, or kids! This was a neat little find away from the hustle and bustle of a city. cant wait to go back again:)

Keeps on Getting Better

We recently returned to stay at the Dreydon House. The one-on-one service by Bill and Janis make you feel at home. We noticed that they keep on adding new things. This time we had access to cable TV and a tranquil patio sitting area. If you are lucky to book a night here, you will not be disappointed!
