Kick your feet back on our little slice of paradise!  You will have a cabin on approximately 3 very secluded acres to yourself, and over an acre of what we call The Flat, a large open area to run and play.   The Cabin has a queen bed on the bottom, as well as a king bed in the loft.  Our porch is a beautiful spot to enjoy a cup of coffee while you watch the sunrise and the beautiful wildlife, turkeys, quail, and deer are frequenters of the area.  Fruit, coffee grounds, water, a French press, and a BBQ kettle is available for your enjoyment.  On The Flat there is a small pond that you can swim in (depending on the water level), a bbq/fire pit area with seating, two restrooms and a double head shower room.  On one side of The Flat is our beautiful old growth Live Oak Grove, the other side is a amazing Old Growth Eucalyptus Grove with some of the largest trees in Slo County.  This area is perfect for getting out of the sunshine, and relaxing under the trees.  There is also a tire swing in the oak grove that always brings laughter.

The back of the property boarders a large ranch/nature preserve which is a dense Monterey Pine forest, and the front side of the property is the old village of Cambria.  The property is elevated above town, giving the feel of being in the middle of the forest with total privacy, yet you are only a 5 minute walk to the village.  The old village of Cambria has everything you could want on a vacation.  We have True Earth Market, which is an organic health food/grocery store with a kitchen that makes a mean sandwich.  Next to True Earth is our historic saloon Mozzis with pool tables, snooker table, karaoke, and the wildest crowd you've ever ran into!  There are lots of shops to peruse including the world famous Linn's Pie Shop.  Amazing restaurants, from old fashioned diners, to fine dining, including Cambria's famous Robin's Restaurant.   Also a 5 minute walk will get you to Vyana Wellness Center, offering massage, yoga, and a variety of classes.  About a 10 minute walk will get you to Cambria's dog park.  About a 12 minute walk will get you to Cambria's Gym One fitness club offering a weight room, cardio room, physical therapy, and a wide variety of classes.  The beach is a 5 minute drive, 10 minute bike ride, and a 25 minute walk.  Hearst Castle is a 12 minute drive.  Salmon Creek Trail is a 30 minute drive.  

On site certified massage therapist offering 60 minute or 90 minute massages.

Super fun spot! Buddy was wonderful in being in contact with us immediately and checking in occasionally over our 3 days there. Its literally on the downtown Cambria strip, so perfect easy access but it sits above and a bit tucked away so there’s no noise issues at all. He also recommended an excellent challenging day hike Salmon Creek. Highly recommending this spot!

This place is awesome! You get the camping feel but are right next to the best part of town. Buddy and Kylie were super accommodating. The wild turkeys coming through camp and the frogs sounds at sunset capped it all off :)

Wow... What an absolutely beautiful property! Our host was great and super helpful but also gave us the space to enjoy our trip. This space was so unique. It is set literally in the middle of town but the layout makes you feel like your in the middle of nowhere. Fears about being so close to town? I can tell you first hand that because the property is high and how the camping area is set up, you can't hear anything but the birds in the trees, the frogs in the little pond, the turkeys that were on the hill on the morning or the cows on the hill across the valley. What a gem! We loved it and will definitely be back!! Thanks Buddy!

The Corral was wonderful. Perfect for feeling like you are out in the woods but with the convienence of walking into town. Buddy was very welcoming and so helpful. Highly recommend!

This was a wonderful spacious place to camp. A truly beautiful piece of land right in town but with the feeling of seclusion. Buddy was a great and kind host. I would certainly consider camping there again in the future. You can also easily walk into town for supplies in as little as 3 minutes.

This campground is beautiful! Right next to Main Street in Cambria but up on a small hill with a nature preserve behind it, so you see trees and hills all around. You can hear the ocean, seals, and cars sometimes in the distance, but it is very peaceful. One evening a family of deer even walked through the campground while we ate dinner. It's a great location to be able to explore the town and nearby beaches and parks.

Buddy was very attentive and answered all our questions quickly. He is still finishing the bathroom and cabin, but once those are completely done, they should be very nice.

Thank you Claudia! It's was nice having you! I just want to mention that at the time you stayed her, the cabin wasn't listed, and it was just basic camping. It is done now, and I hope you return and try it out 😊

Very family friendly, private place to camp or glamp depending on your preference! Cabin was perfect for the 5 of us with flush toilets as a major plus! Kids had a blast from just running around to swinging on the tire swing and watching the wild turkeys throughout the day. Buddy was an exceptional host, super friendly and answered all my questions promptly. You get the feel of camping while still being really close to the shops and restaurants which is just a few minutes walking distance away!

Hi Angel! Thank you so much for the review! It was great having you all, and we really hope to see you again soon!

Our recent stay was so wonderful! I was traveling with my mom and two kids and the cabin fit us all perfectly! There are so many great things about this property- the cabin itself was immaculate, provisions for coffee provided, and great loft up above to sleep two extra people and a super comfy bed down below. The bathroom/shower structure was equally fabulous! Two toilet ares, a big double head shower area in the middle and soap/shampoo provided. The grounds themselves were spectacular! So expansive with incredible views and plenty of room for tents/big groups, or smaller gatherings like ours. We enjoyed an amazing sunset in the evening and cozy morning fog. The camp is situated up above the town so you feel like you are way out in nature but yet just a few minutes walk from town. Buddy was an amazing host, giving us lots of tips on where to eat and things to explore. If only we had more time to take advantage of all his awesome suggestions! He was also super attentive and helpful, while giving us our space at the same time. Overall, I would say if you are looking for a place to stay in Cambria, stop your search here and book this place! You won't regret it, promise.
