The day started with a real disaster. Utter calamity. My black three quarter trousers which I bought in Kenya from the Mitumbe (or recycled tenth hand clothes store) for about £2.50 have developed a serious split.

Ah well. I can't see it, so as long as I wear black underwear, maybe it …
... 1919, newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst hired San Francisco architect Julia Morgan to build a hilltop house on what he called his 'ranch at San Simeon'. Their collaboration lasted from 1919 to 1947. morgan designed this Mediterranean look estate and filled it with art and antiques from Hearst's vast collection.
In its heyday in the 20s and 30s, Hearst invited all the great and the good for weekend parties.

In Cambria I was to meet a couple that I had met while visiting my family in the Los Angeles area back in March and recently on this trip. I was born into that house and my dad made friends with them on our last trip there. What wonderful people and i was excited to meet them. They were stuck in traffic thought around the time when they said they would arrive so I had to pass time ...
We stopped to stretch at a pull off later in the day and walked a trail to the edge of the coast and found a beach cove. It was yet another site we stumbled onto that was incredible. As we were walking back to the car we turned around to see whales spouting in the sea for as far as we could see north and south. They weren't close enough to see what kind of whales but we were able to see them rise to the ...
... and we had magnificent blue skies to make our photos look a lot better! Our last stop was the magnificent indoor Roman pool with the gold and blue tiled floors, walls and carrying the same theme enough the entire pool. I was time to return to the Visitor Centre where we saw the forty minute film about the history of Hearst Castle. We left the castle and headed toward the Piedras Blancas lighthouse, which was closed, so we made our way ...

Historical Traveler Reviews FogCatcher Inn Cambria
FogCatcher Inn, Moonstone Beach was very accomodating. Nice Room, Nice Fireplace and cordial help. Dinner comp at Cambria Pines Lodge was also nice...good food, good service... Nice Place to stay, would do it again !
EXCELLENT PLACE TO STAY AND RELAX
This place is excellent! Outstanding compared to the other hotels that we've stayed in . The rooms are clean, cozy and quiet which made us feel at home. The breakfast was excellent..which reminds me of Europe. Staff are very accomodating, I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. In fact some of my friend already made the reservations to check it out.. Good place to stay in Cambria..
I would not recommend for a family stay, there is no air conditioning, We didn't feel safe leaving the windows open so the room was very stuffy. The beds were not comfortable but that didn't sound likeit bothered the couple next door to us, it sounded like they realllly had a good time, I'm glad the kidswere sleeping by then. The hot tub and pool were very nice and well kept. but the local kids in cambria seem to know the management doesn't care who uses them, we sat by the hot tub for 1/2 hour waiting to use the hot tub. Sorry but for the money maybe I would stay in another town with more reasonable rates this place is part of a large company that seems to own most of the hotels and other tourist traps in town.
I can't recommend the Fog Catcher more highly! It is located right above beautiful Moonstone State Beach, and its setting is perfect for anyone seeking a time away from the city hustle and bustle, and stresses of life. The facilities are wonderful, very comfortable, and the staff are very supportive of your experience being all you wanted it to be. Cambria and the Central California coast is truly a place that can bring healing and rejuvenation to the weary, and the Fog Catcher Inn adds all the more to the time you'll spend. It is a bit pricy, especially in the high seasons, but they have great off season offers. Perhaps you'll be like my family and make the Fog Catcher at least an annual stopping place out of your life's journey, and share enjoying our Central California Secret!
Lovely, Charming English Cottage by the sea
I have stayed at this hotal and its sister hotels every time I have the good fortune to be in Cambria. The place is lovely. The breakfast room bright and cheery and the ocean across the Street divine!
My wife and I are frequent travelers. I'm a salesman. Book me into a chain hotel. My wife owns a small wine shop. Give her a B&B or an inn. The best of both worlds is the Fog Catcher Inn. Laid out like a motel, a shake style roof and amazing gardens give the place the feeling of an inn. I booked the least expensive room with a king bed for a Sunday night in mid-January. The location of our room worried me a bit, being way back in the corner of the property. But what a pleasant surprise. A king bed with an inviting comforter. A gas fireplace. A full bath. A separate area for hanging our items included a refrigerator with beverages and a coffee pot. Add to this a large well heated spa (and pool), the "expanded" continental breakfast which included scambled eggs, and glorious Moonstone Beach. A great place to stay!
The Fog Catcher Inn is so lovely -- comfortable and affordable -- we'll be back :)
My spouse and I have stayed here twice now, and both times we've stayed in charmingl, well-maintained ocean-view rooms. (If you don't want to pay as much for the ocean view, all the other rooms have beautiful views of the enchanting English-style gardens surrounding the inn.) The ocean is just right across the street, and so at night we left the window open a few inches so that we could fall asleep listening to the waves crashing on the beach. That in itself was worth the extra price of the room! The rooms (we peeked at several others) are large and tastefully decorated with french provincial and toile fabrics, bathrooms are immaculate and modern, and the staff couldn't be nicer and more accomodating. The free breakfast is more than just the usual danish and juice-- scrambled eggs, fresh fruit, and cereals are available.. If you're a garden lover, make sure you tour the whole place, sit on the view benches surrounded by brick and stone paths, and check out all the lovely roses growing in the back.
Fogcatcher Inn in Cambria - I Loved it!
I loved every minute of my stay at the Fogcatcher Inn on Moonstone Beach. I was fortunate to have a ocean-facing room, which although pricey, was worth it. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. My room was immaculately maintained, as is all the property. The complimentary breakfast in the lovely little breakfast room was such a nice touch, and it was not the continental type, but a full meal. I chose the Fogcatcher at random from descriptions on its webpage and unlike a lot of places,I found it to be as it was advertised. I am eagerly looking forward to my next stay there. As you can tell from my review, I highly recommend this lovely place by the sea. It's the perfect,quiet get-away location.
Loved the fog catcher
the inn is directly across the street from the ocean and we had an awesome view of it from the room we stayed in. our room was clean and cozy and the bathrooms were immaculate. Cambria was beautiful and the fog catcher was the perfect place to stay.
