Ditto the other glowing reviews here. Husband and I have stayed at several other lodgings in Cambria over the years and just discovered Mikki's wonderfully charming 'nest'. Needless to say, I plan on making Bauers' Gilded Nest my regular place to stay in Cambria, whether visiting alone or with hubby. Mikki's thoughtful attention to every detail, and providing her guests... More

This was our sixth getaway to Cambria and our first stay at Bauers'. I have to say this was the most romantic lodging so far. Mainly because it is secluded and private. It was very clean and comfortable. And Mikki is an attentive host. I think in the future this will be our cozy spot for visits in the winter.... More

Mikki was a great hostess and provided us with amazing hospitality. Her homemade breakfast, especially the yogurt was amazing! She brings you breakfast the night before and leaves it in your mini fridge (which by the way you have your own "wing" with a kitchen downstairs and a bedroom upstairs (kind of like a loft)). Very private and homey b&b.... More

We were visiting central California for the first time from the East and were greeted to this B&B Homestay by Mikki Bauers as if we were family. She provided great advice about the area as well as wonderful home-cooked breakfasts each morning. The elegant suite we stayed in was roomy, very clean, and beautifully decorated. Amenities were more than adequate.... More

I became interested in staying at The Gilded Nest, because it reminded me of my home and I wanted to get ideas, as well as trying out a B and B in Cambria. We stayed in the Artist Loft, which has, as a bonus, beautiful little morning hummingbirds to watch while you are eating breakfast. Miki decorates the Artist Loft... More

We were a wee bit apprehensive when we first booked at the Gilded Nest and when we arrived we wondered "what is this all about?" Well, this is all about a truly fascinating lady who seems to look upon showering kindness and hospitality on all who choose to stay with her as being the reason she has been put on... More

We stayed for 1 night in the Elegant Suite, which was beautifully decorated, very comfortable, had every amenity we could need, including a spare toothbrush (which we needed since we forgot ours!). The owner, Mikki, is super helpful and makes sure that your every need and comport were attended to. The price was also very reasonable for everything you get... More

From the time of booking to departure -- and beyond* -- it's obvious that Mikki's goal is to provide an outstanding stay in Cambria. The Elegant Suite is very well equipped: from furnishings to personal amenities, there's just about anything you could possibly need. Mikki knows Cambria well and is generous in sharing her knowledge. *Mikki's post-departure call alerting us... More
