Stay in Cambria's..."Her Castle"* Homestay Bed and Breakfast Inn
*Not to be confused with Hearst Castle, six miles north. Go to for more information.

Cambria's Her Castle is a large, lovely home nestled in the woods of Cambria, California downtown and nearby famous Highway 1. Bill and Eleanor Seavey purchased it in 2004--our first guests stayed with us in mid-2005.


Ours is an absolutely stunning setting overlooking the surrounding hillsides--green in winter and spring, and amber in the summer and fall. Nature abounds nearby, with deer and raccoons visiting often. Dozens of species of birds frequent our decks seeking "handouts," including brightly plumed woodpeckers, doves, jays and sparrows. Monterey pines, redwoods, yucca and cypress grow within our small estate and provide shade cover and a tranquil scene.


Speaking of the estate, we have a virtual botanical garden which you are free to roam within and around--on several levels. Over a half dozen species of fruit trees (apple, lemon, grapefruit, orange and plum) grow on our sunny slopes. We have Redwood and Monterey Pines. There is an almost infinite variety of shrubs and flowering plants, as well as desert yucca, cactus and succulents. Potted plants and custom muraling accent the gardens and home. While Her Castle is not grandiose, it is charming and serene, with modern conveniences-- yes, we have free dependable WiFi.


As a b&b, we offer a continental breakfast in your suite consisting of granola, yogurt, muffins, scones and juice, coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Please note: We are no longer serving a sit down breakfast in the dining room.


Bill and Eleanor moved here by way of Northern Santa Barbara County, Southern California, Ontario, Canada, and the Pacific Northwest.) We know the area well and can help you with all your questions.  (Try to stay here at least two days or more as there is easily 72 hours of things to do!)  We will endeavor to help you economize on your trip if necessary -- for example, we know about the finest restaurants in town and where the best bargains are! Your hosts are tennis club members--if YOU play courts are less than a mile away, and we would love to play with you. (Racquets available)


Thank you for your interest in Her Castle, a truly unique b&b experience on the gorgeous Central California Coast.


Your hosts,
Bill and Eleanor Seavey

"This place had all the comforts of home and more. "

The property was adorable and had everything one might need while traveling. Eleanor and Bill were wonderful hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with them!! We will certainly consider them again on our next trip to the central coast area



This was a great and economical option in a very pricey area. Convenient location, just a few minutes to town or nearby attractions. The hosts were so welcoming and kind when we interacted with them. We felt we had plenty of privacy, but accessibility to more interaction if desired. Our stay was quiet and comfortable, with plenty of toiletries and personal touches. Breakfast items were well-stocked and options were plentiful
