Cambria Inns Collection Keeps Coastal Holiday Cheer on High
Those in search of a holiday destination that swaps chaotic commercialism for storybook charm will rejoice in a cheer-filled visit to Cambria Inns Collection – a group of boutique hotels in Cambria, CA, that gifts guests with cozy beachfront accommodations close to the quaint village’s festive holiday activities.
Offering a Moonstone Beach property to fit nearly every type of guest and budget, Cambria Inns Collection includes the luxurious Blue Dolphin Inn (pictured below); the warm and welcoming Sand Pebbles Inn; the family-friendly and economical Castle Inn; and the private Moonstone Cottages.
From San Luis Obispo County’s most spectacular light show to indie store holiday shopping, Cambria Inns Collection is just a short distance from the area’s most popular “Holidays in the Pines” offerings:
· Cambria Christmas Market (Friday, Saturday, Sunday; December 1-23): Cruise a California winter wonderland created with thousands of vivid lights (*pictured above) that create a path from Cambria Pines Lodge to the Cambria Nursery. Sip on hot cocoa – spiked with a shot, if you’d like – and peruse the spectacular light show, a German-inspired “street market” featuring locally-made items and food, and even Santa’s house, amidst cheerful holiday music. www.cambriachristmasmarket.com
· Christmas at Hearst Castle (December 1-31): As if Hearst Castle wasn’t ornate enough, the majestic hillside compound in San Simeon (just six miles north of Cambria) gets even more grandiose during the holidays with lavish decorations of handmade garlands, brilliant red poinsettias and two massive Christmas trees bejeweled with traditional ornaments and lights. Expect a tour that’s even more magical and memorable. www.hearstcastle.com
