Rigdon house is a lovely place to stay. A short stroll to center of Cambria. Our room was spacious, clean, with a comfortable large bed and nicely renovated. The fire was on when when we arrived and it was so cosy and comfortable inside. The bathroom were large and we had a nice deep bath. They serve porridge and pastries...

We only had one night here but thoroughly enjoyed it - the downstairs room was a two-room suite with sitting and dining areas and an enormous bathroom. The entry to the inn is charming and old-fashioned. We enjoyed the wine hour and chatting to other guests. Breakfast isn't very good - they emphasise that it is "just muffins" and that...

The location is in the heart of Cambria right there between many small boutique art shops and restaurants. We booked a family suite and that had two rooms with 1 KB and 2 QBs in it, very spacious and luxuriously appointed. The house gave a cozy feel and not a hotel like feel, they have a Wine social happy hour...

Let me first say that we were pretty happy with our stay at The Rigdon House. The young woman Caitlin (SP?) that checked us in and hosted the wine reception was exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable of Cambria having grown up in the area herself. We booked our room confident with our research that the property was “pet friendly”. Upon arrival,...

This place is very tough to rate. Room was very large and cozy. The young lady at the desk was very friendly and informative. She offered suggestions of places to go and places to eat. That being said there are a couple of negatives. The TV was older than most of my children. The sitting room/living room area was more...

Stayed with a couple friend and the staff was great, the room was clean and beautiful and the grounds were adorably decorated and cozy. Easy 15 minute drive to Hearst castle and lots of great restaurants and shops in Cambria. Also nice little breakfast served 9-11. Would completely stay again!
