The following review was left for a stay in May at The J. Patrick House, a Diamond Collection member in Cambria, California. It's an authentic log home with seven guest rooms with private baths.
"We stayed at the J. Patrick House for the first time late in April...In the morning we were greeted by our friendly host, an incredible breakfast of fresh fruit (with some delicious home made granola) then baked french toast... the atmosphere during breakfast the atmosphere was vibrant and we ended up having some great conversations with John [the innkeeper] as well as the other guests. After an amazing day at Moro Bay we stopped back to recharge and explore the hors d'oeuvres and some wine before an evening at Hearst Castle. After our visit to the Castle we went to dinner at an amazing restaurant that was recommended by John, who also helped us make a reservation. Our only regret was that we only were able to stay for two nights, our last breakfast was an amazing souffle with some cherry croissants, and during that breakfast John recommended some wineries that we could visit on our drive home... again the atmosphere of the B&B shined as we had a lively conversation with the other guests and John about what were the best wineries to visit. We will definitely return, and hopefully soon!!!"
