If you are taking a road trip along the California coastline you should take a stop in Cambria. The town is small so it is very peaceful. The lodge is located on the wooded hill away from road, but just a quick trail to the town. The rooms have a mini living room with a couch and tv, as well as a mini fridge and coffee maker at no extra cost. The grounds are vast, with two volleyball courts, a pool, and trails to take for an afternoon walk. Their breakfast is so much better than contenetial, but get there fast because there is a line that forms quickly. They have homemade pancakes, waffles, bacon, toast, bagels, cantalope, watermelon, orange juice, coffee, hot chocolate, ceral, bananas, etc. A whole breakfast buffet. The Cambria lodge is a great place to relax. With their very own gardens behind every room you can really escape into the great outdoors!
