The back side of the WELCOME sign reads Private Party No Vacancy. The Bridge Street Inn is the perfect house for happy gatherings of friends and family.


Local artist Rachel Kenney has designed and created a WELCOME sign that compliments the charm of the Bridge Street Inn and the beauty of our guests.

Rachels’ art gallery, REK Inc, offers one a kind treasures found no where else on the central coast.  Below are some photos of Rachel’s work taken from her etsy and Facebook account.  To really experience the colors and feel of her craftsmanship it is worth the short walk from the Bridge Street Inn to her gallery.

Booojha the Silent Business Partner at the Bridge Street Inn

Booojha the cat

Booojha was a different type of business partner. He wasn’t interested in money. His concern at the end of the night was lap counts and behind the ear scratches.

Booojha 1 short tail

Despite Booojha being a handicap cat he never let people’s comments about his tail shake his self confidence.

It’s not a peeping Tom. It’s Booojha the peeping cat.

Every “Good Life Business Plan” should involve cats and cast iron.

Booojha’s only form of personal hygiene came from licking himself. He always smelled and looked clean like a freshly laundered sheet.

Yes, it’s that time of year where the scarecrows come out!..

What is the Cambria Scarecrow Festival?

“Thirty scarecrows kicked off the first Cambria Scarecrow Festival in 2009. What those 30 scarecrows didn’t know then, was that they were initiating one of the most artful and unique scarecrow festivals in the US–and right here on the Central Coast. Over 420 scarecrows lined Cambria and San Simeon’s business districts in 2013.

This fall, enjoy a fun and relaxing get-away on the cozy California coast. For the entire month of October, hundreds of artfully crafted scarecrows are displayed throughout the seaside villages of Cambria and San Simeon. It is truly a case of whimsy running rampant.“

Can’t Find a single Business Sign obstructing the Skyline in Cambria

Cambria Signs

The glorious signs of a healthy economy.

I will not let Cambria’s anti free market strict business sign code stifle my capitalist creativity. Let’s see what the communists think about bicycle sandwich board signs.

A large glowing neon Bridge Street Inn sign would benefit guests. As you can see from this photo there really isn’t a good landmark for directions.
