Upon arrival we learned we were upgraded for some great reason and given bigger room #17! The room was big beautiful and comfortable. Two fireplaces, mini fridge, coffee maker, comfortable suite furniture, beautiful bathroom! Sherri was an amazing host. Provided drinks, snacks and company. She was so friendly with my wife and I. I can't say enough about her. Rigdon House is perfect walking distance to a neat model war gallery, shopping, coffee shops, restaurants, wine tasting and Mozzie's bar to finish up the night. The back patio with the firepit was AMAZING!! We'll probably never get this great room for this great price my wife found online, but this is a trip we'll be talking about for a long time!! Thank you Rigdon House!! We'll be back!!!

I have been to every state in this beautiful country and have had many occasions to stay in all sorts of B & B’s and inns. This one was one of the best....the perfect place for our group of ladies to gather for 4 days and 3 nights and enjoy each other’s company and tour the area. It is 150 yrs old but has maintained its quaintness and antiquity through the remodeling they’ve been doing. I loved my 2 room suite (#19 upstairs) with a gorgeous bath with skylight. It had an electric fireplace in the bedroom and another in the living area, a mini fridge and microwave with coffee maker. They laid beautiful single long stem roses on the mantles and tables. It’s view was via beautiful French windows that look out over the bricked patio with comfy seating and fire pit and the forest beyond. They were sold out and we really enjoyed meeting couples and families from other states and countries. The patio, morning room and evening sitting area are the perfect atmospheres for gathering. The Aussie couples were particularly fun and friendly. The ladies who run this place go out of their way to please their guests during your visit. They are also happy to make excellent recommendations for restaurants and activities. Since we were there for a long weekend, we all felt the cereals, French Bakery items, warm scones, fruit, boiled eggs, jams and coffee and tea selection were the perfect light offerings. They also offered wine and snacks and fresh pizza in the afternoon before we left for dinner. My own room was spectacularly clean with a very comfortable bed, but since it is up some steep stairs without an elevator, I wouldn’t recommend it for an elderly person who has any trouble getting around. There is also plenty of free safe parking around the property. The best part is that it is very private, but downtown within walking distance of restaurants, cafes and local shops.

It’s a Hallmark movie brought to life! I was waiting to to see Lorelai Gilmore come around the corner...apparently The Rigdon House has their own version! As beautifully warm and genuine Alexa checked me in, she was almost as excited to show me around as I was to be staying there! It really felt like magic. There was complementary wine and snacks upon my check in, a REAL key and charm around every corner, just like Cambria itself. My room was HUGE and Lovely. I think I just talked my husband into spending Christmas/my birthday there...if they aren’t already booked. Cant wait to return and spend more than one night! Thank you!

Dear Judy, We loved to read that not only did you enjoy your stay, but your furry friend did as well! Our walkable location, extra comfortable beds, and evening goodies are definitely perks, but people like Sherry make the Rigdon House a truly special experience. We're lucky to have her! We hope to see you for your third stay very soon and until then, we wish you safe travels and a beautiful day. Warm Regards, Alexa Guidi (805) 927-5125
